After installing the engine and hooking the lines and wires up to it it started and ran pretty well. I had to file the points and will get a new set to install but at least it runs! I took it out for a spin and everything else works, clutch, transmission, brakes. I was looking at it and it just needed some more tire on the back end so I put on the 26x12x12 Titan Tru power tires I had. Now the old girl looks mean!
I put the hood I got from a 1450 Massey parts tractor on it to finish it for now. I am kicking around putting a hydraulic pump on it along with the extra three point hitch I have. It will take some doing as the gear drive tranny/rear end housing dosen't have the mounting ears for the three point hitch arms but I am going to fab them up. I have all the valves, hoses, cylinder and arms for the three point. It might be the first 1600 with a three point on it, or would it be the first 1450 with a gear drive tranny?
Anyway here are some pictures of the project from this weekend. Don't know for sure just what it will end up being yet!
