Apairinc has the sanden compresser replacement kit. The kit comes with the correct $55  belt.  Do yourself a favor and also: replace all hoses, dryer,  expansion valve. There is a thread on here about it.  That is one NICE 7060!!!!!!!

I might just have to get that kit. Thanks!!

On another note, I am going to change the hydraulic oil, and I want to make sure I have the right filters before I drain it.
Is the powershift filter a spin on?
And according to NAPA, there’s on suction hydraulic filter, and one pressure filter?

I cleaned it up some, but I know it would be best to power wash it up there. I will also look into getting all new hoses. The heater does work, so that is good news.

I am looking for a hammer strap, and I haven’t found many. One place I emailed has one, but he wants $240 for a used one. After seeing some of the other hammer straps for other tractors like John Deere’s and IH’s, some new ones are $61.
Is the Allis Chalmers ones that hard to come by?

I got a hammerstrap from Wellington tractor in Wellington TX..don't remember how much it was..
I just used air to clean the AC and heater cores...I didn't want to pressure wash and get water where I didn't want,, mine was already converted to 134 freon, so all I did was put a new expansion valve, dryer, and a hose or 2...works great..
And, , while ya got the top off, put whatever kind music system in cause its gotta go in with the top off.

When I put 1 on my 7060, I got 1 from my Agco dealer. I don't remember how much it was but it looks like it was made from the same drawbar material as the drawbar on the tractor.

Today I took the 7060 in to town to get it’s new tires on, and had a thrill ride. I was slowing down on a little (very icy!) hill, and as I idled down, it started to slide sideways. I hit the clutch (a mistake), which will also brake the wheels apparently. It slid sideways, headed for the pond on one side of the road, so I touched the left brake, and got it to the other ditch. Luckily, there was a driveway just ahead, and we could drive it back onto the road. If the duals weren’t on, it probably would have rolled over, and if it were on the other side, it would be upside down in a pond right now. I believe it’s going to come home on the highway, nice and slow, and not on the gravel road!!!

Besides that, I was looking for the jack bolts to remove the duals, and found a brand new hammerstrap at my cousin’s place!! You never know what treasures you’ll find over there!!
I’ll get that top all cleaned up with an air compressor, and replace some hoses.
The radio works good, and I think the speaker has a VW on it, and says it’s made in West Germany.

That would have been a scary ride. Glad you and the tractor are both OK. Just an FYI, pushing the clutch clear to the floor acts as a transmission brake, as you found out. Only time clutch should be mashed to the floor is when you are at a dead stop and shifting the range shifter. Sometimes, after putting it to the floor, if it won't shift, you may have to let the clutch up a little, then shift. darrel

I’ve ran into another problem, the tire shop adjusted the power adjust rims in, and they say it rubs on the steps. So, they were thinking about either cutting the step, (ouch!) or drilling a couple new holes to move the step ahead 1 1/2” or so.
I never heard of this problem, what do you all recommend??

I would try to have them move the steps forward. I thought there was a second set of holes in the steps that attach to the tractor

It’s been a little while since I’ve reported, but I have still been doing stuff to it!
The tire shop did get to move the steps ahead, and it works great now.
I have since replaced the front tires with American Farmer 11.00-16’s, and replaced the front wheel bearings, which was just finished today. I ordered the expansion valve, and a receiver dryer for the A/C, and my other cousin is going to try and charge this system, if it looks good to him. I have 4 tiger led lights ready to go in for the stadium lights, but after pulling one off, the metal behind the rubber is rusted, and may need taken to the welder shop to make the rubber glare guard go back on. The lights are 24W hi/lo beam, (which won’t do much good, since it’s only wired for one). They didn’t have the replacements for just the lights for this tractor, they only wanted to get the entire assembly, so I ordered them for a John Deere 4255. My dad had purchased some for the Fender lights on his 4255 JD last year, and they looked Identical to the stadium lights, so that’s why I got them. The one looks promising, anyway.
I still need to change the hydraulic oils, but I’m hoping to find a warmer day, if it ever comes!
I took a picture today of it, and was looking at the pictures of it before I started, and it is coming along pretty well!

Sometimes hard to see progress when you look at your project daily.  Good to go back to the beginning and compare to the starting point, so you can appreciate how much better thiings look.  
It's looking great!

Good job on the 7060, it looks real sharp. You have a enjoyable and reliable tractor. Wish I could find a treasure sitting in a barn that just needs a little work. I have a 210, I have been working on for 4 years to make it useable. These are projects we enjoy. Hope you keep posting pictures.

Thank you all for the nice replies!! I have really enjoyed getting this going. It sure feels great when a plan comes together!!
Today I ran it some, then dropped some hydraulic oil. I drained the three plugs, (LH and RH differential, and the one in front of them) and changed the two filters. I think there was near 15 gallons so far between those, but I haven’t got the Powershift ones figured out. I haven’t messed with that filter, but apparently you need to take the bottom plate off, and drain one or two more plugs, and clean another screen after taking another little plate off with 6 bolts?
And how many gallons should there be altogether?
And you just fill at the two places, one in the cab, and one on the back?
Thanks!!
