Don't weld too much. Bolt everything you can on. These frames are too stiff to start with.

No it is all bolted as original! There were just a lot of holes rusted through in the foot rests and I cut the spotwelds on the fender insert piece sandblasted it used weldthrough primer and welded it back together. It was pretty rusted too. Had to replace a couple of nuts too that were welded on the braces for the foot rests.

I was searching the parts breakdown for the transmission and came upon partstree.com but there are many parts not available there. Specifically the bearing assembly, countershaft rear roller. I have no idea what shape the transmission is in but I would like to know the best place to source the parts before I tear into it. Are there any rebuild kits available for these transmissions other than the gear sets and such that are available. I am thinking that I want to just build it up stock for now.

I bet you can just take the #s off the bearings and go to a bearing
supply company- those old tractors didn't use anything special for the
most part. Seals are available at any auto parts store, use goop
for gaskets.
