The engine is out

Today I worked on getting the engine out and on to the stand. The engine was putting some pretty good stress on the eye-bolts, I was glad to get it mounted. The old tractor is really starting to look bare. I'm hoping to have the clutch housing, torque tube and hydraulics off pretty soon and then it should be ready to go to the sand blaster. I better start ordering parts pretty soon since the engine is going to get a complete overhaul with new pistons, rings, sleeves, bearings, valves, springs, gaskets and a new clutch. The clutch was pretty worn but I expected that, I was glad to have caught it before it damaged the pressure plate.
