Picked up a 129 and a parts 1450 on Friday. Will get the 129 running smoothly soon, and hope transfer the 1450 hydro lift and rear into it. I tried to buy both of these at an online auction a month or so ago but got outbid. I saved myself a $100 by finding them a month later. The guy thought he could put a lager engine into one of these but he gave up before he started. Checkout the nice rear lift lol

Drive the 129 a bit today then it stopped, broken driveshaft. I already have a new one on order

Vince, nice find. That is an interesting rear lift. :roflol:
 
I did the same thing. I had a 129 and traded a friend some narrow frame cub parts for a 1450 roller. Swapped over the hydraulics, converted engine over to newer style AQS starter and charge system. Much better than the starter generator. I also converted the FNR lever over to the new QL version.
 
Finished the 129 last week. This thing fought me all the way. I did not share the custom stacked trunnion springs. I bought a 10.5 Tru Power to match with the one I previously had, loaded 5.5 gallons of fluid into each. Its ready for Plowdays next month.

What did the guy have on the backend of the seat support plate to balance out the 4 stacks of washers on the front side of the seat pivots?

A long bolt on each side bolted on to the seat support to level it out. they scratched up the fender pan. I installed a toolbox from Xtreme to cover this and the dented up back middle section of the fender pan
