The frame was really bad and your lucky to find a donor frame.

Excellent! Nice to see some photos of a bare frame of a 600 series. These should be posted somewhere for posterity showing what/how a "loader ready" frame is made for those that looking to build one!
Agreed nice job. I going to attempt a partial revamp this winter (not outside). This pics will help find problem areas. Thanks RK

peace to all

update on the project. Steering system has been rebuilt. I adapted the shaft to accept the standard MTD type wheels. It’s as simple as drilling and pinning the splined adapter from any MTD machine.

see photos below…

I’ve been busy. Installed the metal hydraulic lines for the loader control and battery box. Need to spend some time under the machine to run the larger lines next.

most of the rear of the machine has been painted, just waiting for installation at this point.

Having never seen one of these things in real life, this has been very enlightening in terms of all the design changes made to create the 600 series.

Thanks for posting all these pics!

It’s been about a month since my last update so it’s time. I’ll do a few so bear with me.

First off I refreshed the Onan CCK. I was told by the previous owner that this motor was just recently rebuilt but I wanted to see for myself. He wasn’t lying! I could read the numbers in the bearings clear as day! No wear at all. The motor was tight and fresh. I honed and replaced the rings, lapped and installed the valves and adjusted.

I’m now slowly refreshing the appearance and assembling it.
