Hey all,
Just thought I would take a second and introduce myself. My name is Doug and my g-father recently gave me a 109. Needs some work. I tore her down and now I am putting her back together. Making some of my own modifications (Lighting, my own electric lift, snow plow, etc.). Ill get some pics posted real soon of my progress. Just wanted to say Hi!!

:welcometogttalk: Looks like you have been busy. That's quite the bit of framework you have there. Took some head scratching, I presume.

I'm still trying to figure out how you will attach the frame at the rear. Might want some gussets on the hitch. the angle may bend with tongue weight on it. Otherwise, looks to be serving your purpose. Keep the pics coming, I want to see this installed. Pretty neat idea!

Just thought Id give an update on my progress. I finished redoing the wiring. I finished the wiring for the linear actuator I am using for the electric lift. The actuator will be here wednesday so Ill be able to fabricate the mount then. I put a hood stop on it. I installed a tachometer. I made my own lift handle spring assist (before i decided on the actuator.) I rebuilt the carb. New wear button on the front pto. I fabricated the new mower deck ends. I needed these because I put wheels on the deck to get rid of the skids. New tires came and were installed. My buddy gave me a set of tire chains and I got them cut and welded. Reset the front end alignment. Got most of the parts prepped and in the makeshift booth. Got them primed and painted. I undercoated the mower deck and installed a new idler pully. Got the new brakes on and adjusted. I got ssome new oregon blades and got them ready. Took the rear end housing cover off and inspected the rear end. Made and installed new gaskets on the point cover,carb,valve cover, and rear end housing. G-pa made his own speed control lever and had welded it on. I am going to leave it but clean it up and repaint it. I took off the rest of the body panels I am removing and started cleaning them up. New fan on the driveshaft. I am off this week so I am hoping to get the painting all done and start reassembling everything. Thats all for now but if I think of anything else i will update tyhe thread. One question. My front wheel on the mower deck is made of wood. Did they come from the factory like that or did someone add that special touch on there own?

Slowly but surely I am making progress. I picked the tractor up at thanksgiving time and I've been working on it whenever Im not at work or sleeping. My old lady hates the tractor. I think shes jealous. Im not looking to restore it to factory original. Rather just make it functional for another 40 years. I have been having a blast working on it though. Im learning ton's as I go along. The wooden wheel is cool as heck.
