    Hi Guys, thanks for the kind replys!:thumbsup sorry for the slow reply! There was 4800hrs almost on the Kubota before rebuild!

    It took a long time, about three weeks or so! The slow thing was being called out on break downs as well! have to keep everyone happy Rite? A few late nights towards the end as the customer needed it back!

    CPS, Looks great! I'm new to the forum and I tried posting a new thread but I can't yet. I'm trying to find a place to get aftermarket drive sprockets for my old Kubota Kh 60. I saw your thread and figured you would probably be the person to know! I also need both axles. Sprockets part # 68741-14433 Axles part# 68741-14312 Thanks Jeff S
