You can probably break the granite up in smaller chucks with a sledge hammer.

That would be a good base to cover with gravel.
If you can use the Case to dig out the D8, I would spread the granite when it is muddy and walk it in with the 8, so it is roughly leveled and then a few loads of gravel for top dressing.

The early Case 580’s have a habit of eating pinion gears in the rear end. I would drain the rear and check for particles before doing much with it. Also if I understand, it’s not a big job to access a top cover, it may be worth a couple hours work to take a look.

If it looks good, which it could be, I would keep the backhoe for digging purposes as much as possible. Get the Cat out and use it for the pushing.

The shifting issue could be a lot of things, hopefully it’s something simple and there’s no need to go into the transmission for it.

I would assume that you have an idea of the kind of moolah you'll need to buy one. There's the boiler, which can cost upwards of 50K to replace, yearly inspections, having a good water source and fuel, as well as a qualified operator. You can get pretty deep, preetty fast.

Dug a hole and filled it in with the loader. Catching on to no reverse real quick.

Close up of the manual extend a hoe. Seems to be a uncommon or early setup.

Where can I find what fluids go where? The transmission has three different dip sticks.

Service manual and owners manual haven't been much help.

Water in my transmission oil?

Was looking for a drain plug and looked up... the entire right side break assembly is missing....

Last picture is what should be there.
