    Heres some more pictures. The 1st is the engine after getting off the trailer, it was raining so it doesnt leak. The 2nd is the metal bracket that was attached to the seat. It was compleatly rusted out. The 3rd is the break in the fender since it must have run into something bending it up. The 4th is from seat view. The 4th is the last remaining light on the left fender. The 5th shows that it didnt come with a battery.

    Lot's of potential there! I guess it all depends on how far you want to take it. I notice the picture of it on the manual shows a ROPS installed. I guess one of the previous owners removed it and it got separated from the tractor???
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!

    Here are some more pictures. Photo 1 shows the mounts for a MMM. On photo 2, I looked at the air filter and decided it needed a new one. The 3rd photo is the front PTO with a belt pully for a MMM. The 4th and 5th are the pistons. They are in pretty good shape but I would like to clean them. Oh, looking at it, it never had a ROPS or a seat belt. The owners manual states that as an option.

    My first project was to remove the left fender and the metal bracket behind the seat. I never realized how hard it was to remove some of those bolts. You can see that the metal was bent upward, my guess is it backed into a tree or deck. The fender will have to be fixed and bent back into the correct position. I would post more often but it takes forever to upload pictures. Photo 8 is the bracket behind the seat. It was bolted to the fender causing it as well to bend. The 6th picture i took to show basically what it looks like without a fender. I did have to cut the wires to the lights since the fender wouldnt come off with out doing so. I plan to replace the lights.

    Jacob: ....I really don't mean to interfere with what and how you are doing this job,....but just a wee bit of advice from one who has "been-there-done-that", .....(if you don't mind?)

    PLEASE,...please put your valve cover back on, sure use the old gasket and tighten it down snug. Then wash, blow, or Power-wash",...especially around the engine,...to get rid of the dirt, fine gravel and stuff I can see there,(some already among the valves)..BEFORE it gets down INTO the engine! Unless of course you are planning to pull the engine down and do a complete rebuild.

    Just that once you start removing covers (with gaskets),..its tooooo late and dirt gets where you definitely don't want it!!! If you don't have access to a power-washer or even a garden hose,...then use a pan of varsol and a paint brush to wash away the dirt FIRST!! If you use the varsol-paintbrush method,...throw some sawdust on the floor under the engine first, so it is an easier clean up after. (cat litter works).

    Just keep in mind,...if dirt and crap gets in,...all your new filters and clean oil etc are wasted. I could see bits of dirt around the push-rods and valve springs (that got there AFTER you took the valve cover off), and I strongly urge you to carefully pick them out before they get down inside.

    That way, you don't have to worry about bits of gravel etc getting into things. Please don't see this as criticism,...believe me, I have been there and know the value of working "CLEAN" !! I'm only trying to save you a whole lot of grief later on.

    One more thing Jacob, then I'll get out and leave you alone: STOP dismantling! Organize your tear-down,..(little boxes),..otherwise you'll end up with bits and pieces, screws and bolts and capscrews intermingled all over the place with a huge guessing game of where they go. Don't be afraid to ask the guys you admire, like (John Deere 4300 Complete Rebuild) for some suggestions on "Organizing-Your-TearDown". Most of us "want" to help,...IF,..we get the idea that you "want" the help AND "appreciate" it. If you'd rather we just mind our own business and leave you to it,...then just say so.

    Just trying to help,...good luck to you!!

    I agree with you on all the terms mentioned. All the bolts for different parts are in different boxes and the larger stuff like the fender is next to the box so I know what goes where. My dad and I are going to pressure wash the tractor maybe next week since it is very dirty. Luckly it is mostly dust. In fact, the owners manual says that it needs to have the air filter cleaned every 10 hours after dusty operation. I still need to pick out the small pieces of dirt but cant well do that while at my moms. My dad said he would work on the tractor while im gone so it is in good hands. I do like the advice given and ask that if you have an idea for me, put it out there. Thanks for the advice. Tugboat-2, I thank you.

    OK Jacob,...seems like you're ahead of me after all. Thanks for the reply,..I'm sorry I didn't realize your dad was working with you on this project. I thought it was just you,..all by your lonesome,..trial and error, learning by experimentation, and I wanted to try and save you some grief later on,..by catching you before you made mistakes.

    So dirt getting down inside the engine had me worried for you,...but since you and your dad have that covered,..I'll just back on out and watch the progress from Canada. I'll comment occasionally and take this opportunity to wish you and your dad all the very best of luck on the project together!

    CHEERS!

    Well, after dinner on thanksgiving, all the guys in the family went out to see if we could get it started. Most watched since they didnt really want to clean up the house. Took off the fuel pump and found water in it so we cleaned it out and put it back on. then i found out that the fuel filter glass had a huge crack in it when we poured diesel into it to get it going. So we took piping glue and fixed the crack until I can get another glass. The tractor does turn over and now that we have diesel in the engine, it should start soon. i also found out that the tranny has no fluid in it at all. So that will be the next project after we get it running. wish us luck. and if you have any comments, please share them. I will post pictures soon.
