I put the 701 on hold for a bit getting that tractor ready for the show and doing a good job wasn't going to happen, So I started on the 56 RJ-35 restoration. I will get back on the 701 after the show. Here are some pics of the tear down. Never been iside a Pond rear end before damn thing turns the gears with a chain Gotta say its a pretty neat setup! Removing the Bearings! Over to the parts washer we go! Examining a worn shaft. I see some Tig welding in order on this shaft, then it will need turned down on a lathe. :omg:
