Got a mount made for the reservoir. I plan to shorten the suction hose about 1/2" to get it away from the belt more. A little snug in there, but should work okay:

I found what I needed for the belt adjuster. I'll see about getting that done today. Then I can strip the engine down and paint it.

Lookin good Kenny.
What did you use for the long hex nuts on the lift links. Are they L & R hand threaded?

I got them from McMaster-Carr and they are L & R threads. Picked up some B-7 grade all thread for them. They are 4" long. I have them set with 1" threaded into them both ways. Will give me 2" tilt either side. I put a locknut on the RH side. Yeah, I will have to get off to adjust.

Remember this is upside down at the moment!
Pulled the engine down and squirted some paint at it. Got a few places to touch up, lighting wasn't that good.

Looks great Kenny. I hope you used a high quality heat paint that also dissipates heat.

And I am glad you said it was upside down... I studied those pics long enough to think... It's going the wrong way!! :bigrofl:

Very nice job on the tensioner Kenny. It's been a lot of work to get it to this point but adding a 3pt is going to take the tractor to another level.

Thanks, guys! It has been a long trek! I didn't think it would take this long, but there were some obstacles to overcome!

Got the engine set back into the frame and bolted down. Got the pump mounted. Started hooking up the vitals. Getting closer!

This is getting pretty exciting Kenny. And, it's lookin better every day.
I can't wait to see the video.
You know, you're going to have to build a boom for it next, so you
can drive around, and lift various things up and down. Ye ha.
