Also slightly newer that the old flathead 4. If the little rod linkage to the lift arm, I think it is called draft control, has become unhooked that would stop it lifting. My Kubotta has it on the...

I have found, if you can get it in there, a round carbide insert tool will take the beating of weld removal and keep on smiling.

This should be quite useful. As for a ground, you may just have to have extra slack in the ground cable so the work can make a full rotation with the ground clamped to it.

Another thought....
a tractor PTO at the 1000 rpm setting with a spline adapter to the shaft instead of the motor.
Otherwise the only solution is a rotary phase converter to generate 3phase.

I think they did you a favor. #30 hp single phase would be a thirsty beast with heavy cables to feed the thing.
Have you considered a small Kubota or Yanmar diesel of about 40hp to drive it instead?...

It sounds good. I would not use anything harder than cold rolled stock. 4041 will without a doubt crystalize and break over time. I have seen it happen to a 5" shaft repeatedly, until I went to a hot...

There will be a solenoid in there to switch on the starting current. Look there.
Even if you hear it click when you push start, does not mean it is conducting current to the start winding.

Once you get the local bureaucrat to sign off on inspections, you can continue to add circuits and plumbing and what they don't know doesn't hurt you.
