Must have hit quote and not edit, whoops. If you could get rid of that I’d appreciate it. Yeah I’m going to run it for a while still cause parts machines are expensive. It occurred to me that maybe I could be hearing the pump’s valves or something since there wouldn’t be a whole lot of fluid in the pump to make the valves quiet, I don’t know though. I will definitely change the filter, and I will probably drain the oil. It’s only a few months old so no need to replace it I think but I will look for chunkies or flakes when I do that.

Well, I settled down, and realistically I think the transmission is going to be good for another two years. I will look out for a gear set or parts machine, and failing that I will retrofit a case 220 hydraulic transaxle and auxiliary functions. The case is a cast iron two speed so I’m out nothing, as long as the torque is the same which it should be. It’s not going to last for a long time as I had hoped, but it will keep going for some time.

Saw today that we hit 2,000 views on this thread. I’m flattered that you guys find this build that interesting! Thanks y’all! More updates are coming, I’ve been busy doing some other stuff and we have been getting a massive volume of rain, flooding in the valleys etc. Not great for wrenching on stuff. Picked up some new hardware today for the blower, and I got the brackets, drift cutters, guard, and chute deflector all painted. Bought some paint for the blower and that is going to get done soon, going with grey. Anyway that’s all I’ve got done now, next step is to paint the blower shell and then the original hood. Might make some new decals too Smile

Blower shroud at the skid plate mounts, note the cracks. How’d that happen?

Aaaugh! Why is it every time I go to paint Mother Nature decides to be rainy, windy and humid? 2055 White resto modding “White Lightning” - Page 4 2429134702

Did you guys get through the storms OK? News says it was nasty on the east coast.

We’re doing great, thanks for asking! Smile What storms are you referencing?

I’m inland a good ways so we don’t get too much from the coast, most of our storms are out of the south or west. I’m in an area prone to flash flooding, but I’m on a mountain so I trade the floods for 50 mph winds.

If you meant Elsa that just gave us a couple thunder storms and a few downed trees, but I’m just glad we aren’t in drought this year.

Good news. The ‘news’ here said tornados and whatnot on the east coast. I didn’t see exactly where. South of you I suspect.
