Removing the PTO and it's driving shaft id goot for about 30-40 pounds. I think the belt pulley drive is good for a few more, not to mention the pulley itself. If fenders are required, use the late R fenders. They look great, bolt on, and are much lighter. Run about half the required oil in the tranny. A "red nose" from a ZT is much lighter than the heavy cast tanks and radiator on the ZA. You may not want to change that for looks reasons. The ZT is really a bit lighter. I'm assuming all the hydraulics are already off the tractor. ZAS/ZTS/JTS axles, housings, and hubs are much narrower, therefore much lighter. I'd bet half the weight. My friend did this (minus axle housings) to his ZA and had it to 3600 or so. 3500 takes a bit more work and works much better with a ZT. The lightest I've seen is a 3000# ZT, but it's pretty tricked out. BTW, some brands and styles of tires (and wheels) are ligter than others. That's all I can think of right off the top of my head.
