it was over a grand, and it involved splitting the tractor and disassembling it's rear end. I'd put it on par with rebuilding an automatic transmission. Not hard, but keep it meticulous.
the hard parts were expensive, and new holland has been ratcheting up prices on older equipment parts. Which is why I found a kubota glow plug timer. NH wants $170 for the little NGK box. Kubota one was $48 on amazon prime.
but our machine has nothing in common with yours in the drivetrain. Yours is a whole class bigger. and mechanical, not hydro.
hopefully it's just a clutch.
$4600 for a machine that size with less than 2K hours isn't a bad deal, especially with the loader.
You could sell the loader for half that if it all goes sideways.
it looks like running 4wd ones are going for ten grand, without a loader.
