Well, I think I at least have a better knowledge of the system, now, enough that I might attempt it again if mowing with the bucket removed and the hydraulics still in place is more of a pain than I remember. At least I know I CAN get it all back together, now. Thing is, main job for the thing is mowing. Only need the front loader now and then.
