Transmition and Frame update! Its all out!
so it took me about 3 days to get everthing out, and i need to order $60 worth of broken parts, fan, bushings, etc. but the hydrostatic trans is definetly staying in this build, more rust than i wanted to see, but enough that its not a major problem. i am going to repain it, its getting new stickers all around, and its getting a new seat. otherwise enjoy the dissasembly photos

here is the frame with only the hydro lift, and trans left on it.
Ford YT18h WorkHorse - Page 2 Wp_20122
this is the "power pack" of the ford it has the hydro resivour it is around 2 gallons, and it has the Eaton 850 transaxle. i dont have the exact model of the eaton but i do know that it is the heavy duty model bc, of some extra spacing of axles and the 1inch axles instead of 3/4.
Ford YT18h WorkHorse - Page 2 Wp_20121
here is 1 of the 2 boxes of parts this box has all of the steering and seat-pan parts, the other box has all of the linkages to everything, brakes, hydro foot petal, etc. more photos and cleaning to come soon!

That trans looks like a good unit. Nice that it has the spin on oil filter, that's always a sign of a good hydro.

i had to print off a 80 page manual for the trans just to understand it. there is no differential in it so im at a loss on how to make it have a locked diff, ive experimented with its manual blowoff valve, so i think there is a way to adjust it to work without its differential properties. (if that makes any sense)

hmmm, IDK I wouldn't tamper with the hydro, just routine stuff like changing fluid and filter.  You don't want to cause it to overheat.

im actualy thinking of puting on a cooler, there is room and it can be done rather easily, the hydro can take what im doing with it. i just need to make it run at a lower temp.

It'd be cool to have an oil cooler. Could you fit it by the fan?
