I have a 480c case backhoe my shuttle shift leaks like a sieve. How nasty of a job is it to pull out?

Apparently its not too bad of a job remove small driveshaft then pan and then 4 to 5 bolts to pull out shuttle shift gear box make sure you flush all the lines as they clog up another issue with either no forward or reverse or you may have a clutch pack issue but thankfully you don't have to split the machine like a tractor.

That thing is cool! So that twin cylinder must be a 2 stroke? Those are diaphramed carbs, in fact they look a lot like Mcculloch 101 carbs, if not exact. Maybe it's twin Mac, no idea what models they have. Awesome find, body looks like a 68 camaro in the rear and an 80s model in front from the side profile.

Yeah I missed the kohler part. I'm unaware kohler and Mac had similar carbs but my previous 101s were just like that. Pretty cool.

Still waiting for some help with rims also need a NUMBERS man I have a 440 Rotax AVIATION motor it red lines at 7K the old one was 3600 kinda wondering if I will have shift issues with the higher RPM I'll have to look at clutch to get the numbers for that. Any other info please message me and I can add that to the post.

Thank you in advance.

I'm pretty sure that rim doesn't exist lol. I've searched a couple of times and came up with nothing, though there are many people on here who do better at finding things than me.

I tried searching (along with other searches):
"12 wheel -3 -4 -5 -7 -9 -10 -11 -13 -14 -15 -16 -17 -18 -19 -20"

to try to limit other sizes from showing up while still allowing for 6 or 8 for the bolt hole pattern.
I got nothing

DOH check my Amphicat thread for engine details.

Thanks gr8hairy I might just have to reweld the rims with steel strips, can't find anything and shipping is more then they are worth.

---------- Post added at 09:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:33 PM ----------

On a side note, didn't find much at Barrie swap meet. Got a light bar and some nice headlights but it was kinda dead this year. Hoping to fond some time to do some work soon but have a 4.3 Merc engine rebuild and about 4 acres I have to level to put up my outside boat storage building, just can't seem to find time.

OK so I have a 377 Aviation Rotax and a Bazoo/Terra Jet transmission and I want the low end torque but top end speed with good mid range power, SOOOOOOOOO whos the clutch expert here? Hopefully someone can recommend a good primary and secondary setup. I'll measure the shafts tomorrow in case thats important information you need engine max rpm is 7500 engage is 2000 not sure about transmission its the same as a Bazoo first gen.
