Is that round bar an addition?  Seems it would really help to keep that hood from rocking around :handgestures-thumbupright:

It's not round it is about  1/2" x 1/8".  Was added to those models at some point. my 312-8 and 1989 520-H have them. Not sure what year they were added.

The early models didn't have them.

Forgive me for my ignorance y’all, I noticed the combination of a hydro and a brake band?  Is this the only tractor equipped as such, or is every Eaton 1100 this way?

All 1100 Eatons have a physical brake,  Later model Sunstrand piston to piston also had a physical band brake.

Every Eaton 1100 machine I have owned has the same (C175, C195, C145, 416H, 520H).

Your project is coming along beautifully.

Just one thing. Your engine plate is upside down.

Hate for you to get the engine bolted down to it then have to switch it.

Fixed it ! Just knowing it was wrong would've kept me from functioning properly all day. I'd have caught it eventually but thanks cleat !

 Installed the steering shaft and wheel (didn't forget the ANTI-SEIZE ) and the pto safety switch and bracket(with a serrated stainless bolt). Shimmed the steering column as needed to remove play in the shaft, and also installed some hard fiber washers on the control levers to eliminate any slop.

 Went back into the hydraulics and swapped out the long hose that runs to the bottom of the rear axle, switched it over to a newer style hard line instead of the rubber hose. It routes completely different (under the lift/hydraulic mechanisms instead of over the top, really cleans things up in the center console area. installed the hood hinges, put a small section of heat shrink on the stops for the hood hinges so there isn't any metal on metal contact, installed the pto lever and installed a foam pad where it contacts the stop, and installed the front closure panel with the relays on it.

Are those hard lines custom, or just a later design?  I wonder if any other tractors could be made into hard lines?

The hard lines are factory correct for newer 520's(mine's a 91). I would have liked to changed out the other long hose too, but the tins are different in the area around the lines and I wasn't cutting sheetmetal at this point.
