Hi my name is***** is your serial number? The repairs will depend on how much you need in parts once the machine is disassembled. You can access the parts catalog by clicking this link and searching by serial number. This machine is not set up with standard clutches and brakes. There is a steering control valve and clutches for the brake. I would not recommend this job without a manual on hand. Click this link to access the parts catalog to see the breakdowns.

Sorry to hear that Steven. I hope you get well soon. We can leave this open and continue this when you feel better. I have family visiting this weekend too so no rush.
