I am currently doing a ring, piston, hone rebuild on a K 321 off a Ford LGT 145 Tractor on this machine they actually welded the rails to the bottom pan (see pics). My intention here is to put this puppy in a red machine (312-8 or GT14). I definitely have the small pan with the expanded bottom for the long dipper.
Here's my questions:
> Can I carefully remove the rails from the pan, cutoff the old front axle mounting bracket(s) and then drill holes in the flanges to mount to the Wheel Horse rails.
> Since the engine is side mounted will the expanded bottom fit between the standard Wheel Horse rails?
> If not possible to make this old pan work what flat pan would work and do I need to get the expanded bottom one (big dipper}
> any recommendations here would be appreciated don't want to go down to many blind holes here...….
looking for info/help re securing a front wheel bearing/race for GT14/ 1971; any info would be much appreciated..

Sooo about three months ago I had a friend of a friend pass to me the most needy Wheel Horse GT14 Tractor I had ever seen, it was completely taken apart every single part had rust and two coats on oil paint one blue and one yellow. parts were missing and of course there was no labeling of parts or assembly there-of. All wiring, gauges, rectifiers were removed and non existent….. still the machine was calling to me to try and do the almost impossible...… My thanks to Aldon for parts and support and Kyle for Technical help and shoulder to cry on. …. The only saving grace of the entire project is that the engine and tranny were indeed still good...… in fact the only remaining issue I have on the machine is that I cannot free-up the relief valve so that I can move the machine w/o power..... I think this might be stuck forever … but not the end of the world.
Hi. I'm Chaplain Manny. I was wondering if you supply the decals for the gt14, the kohler k321 engine?
If you do, could you give me a quote, and tell me how long is the turn around?
