I see you still have your parking brake. Your setup is just like mine. Can you take a picture close-up of your brake system area? I have found that what I had was partially wrong and missing the parking brake.

I would really appreciate it. Your rig is turning out great!

It was fun while it lasted. No money in the toy budget to rebuild.

Ouch, that's sad man. I understand, if mine blew a motor or something I would not be able to fix it either.

Looks like it can still be saved eventually. Rollover?

Hope you made out well in the rollover.  Looks like you just need an engine and hood work?  Dash and steering look good.

I think just a oil pan. The engine shut off but that could be because it ripped a fuel line loose. Dash tower is twisted a bit but steering looks and feels ok. Hood can be straightened but hood mounts are junk. Belt guide is junk. throttle cable and foot pedal are toast.

Ive got half a mind to to a 6" stretch in the rear and a front axle move forward in the front.

It looks like it’s just a bad block. Keep your eye on eBay, sometimes the bare block shows up cheap.

Adam’s small engine in Ohio has used blocks I believe, you can call him at (419) 685-2264. Bought some transmission guts from him before off eBay, worked out well.

Thats a good one mate, one I wouldn't have come off without a few cuss words!
Hoods should be able to be bent back, engine is a... different story... looks to me like you effed that block up pretty good. Keep going at her, the carnage is sometimes all of the fun.

Picked up some parts. 2 520h a 418-8 snow plow and a brinley 10" plow. I need to make back 500 bucks quickly on this and need to do something thinking on what to sell and what to keep. Not keen on running a onan but guess I have 3 now lol.

Not what I paid but what I need to get back. I robbed Peter to pay Paul to buy this lot. 500 is what I borrowed from the not tractor fund.

And so the addiction is full effect.  Good luck.  Next you know you have 10 tractors... widdle that down to 8, then family members give you a tractor.  Then they get you another...and then you steel one away from another state because where you live they are 10x pricier..... Oh wait... Enough about me. LOL

Nah. If it doesn't run or isn't used I don't want it around here. I'm not one to hoard tractors that I'll never use just to try to fill a void in my heart. I hope this one sells quick. Clean 520h. The others will get converted or parted out.
