Brian, I was going for the wow factor. Between the charcoal grey and black will be a nice splotch of red. Ought to pop right out there! I'll definitely know it in a group!

See Kenny, I told you that you wanted to be just like me lol. I know I can always find the Caterpillar in a crowd of Craftsmans. When you are done with your GTV16 we need to post pics of our Craftsmans side by side by side with a stocker lol.

Casey, all I will have for a 'stock' tractor is the before pics unless I 'borrow a pic from elsewhere.
Doug, I thought the red would help bring out the other colors. Needed something to break up all the dark color!

With that red in there, it looks like a little massey interaction happened. Looks good.

Guess I should have updated the 'Refurbish' thread with some of these pics. I'll do that with today's pics.
Will, could have been! I like the looks of the 12, 14, & 16 Masseys.

Could be Will. Those Masseys just can't seem to leave other tractors, Bushhogs for instance, alone. Maybe one got into Kenny's Barn and had it's way with the Sears!!!

Brian, haven't seen any Massey's around here. One could have snuck in while it was in Wichita!

Just an update. The guys are spraying primer on the '56, so I had to cover everything and put this on hold again!

Kenny, I had the 2320 out the other day and measured the amount of lift it has. The arms are adjustable and I have them in the position that gives the highest lifts and the largest amount of lift. Even in this position it produces only 20" of lift. I think 16" is the standard amount for a cat 1 so your cat 0 is producing a lot of lift. If you have a problem with not being able to lift enough weight with your current setup you might consider making the arms adjustable like the 2320. I've included a couple of pictures of the setup.
You can also see how the anti sway setup works. The 2 turnbuckles adjust the side to side slack out of the arms. JD provides a difficult to use locking pin to keep them locked in place. Without some sort of lock they tend to loosen quickly. I run a couple of bungie cords, which you can see in the second picture, up to the top link instead. This keeps all 3 adjustments from moving and it's easy to adjust by simply removing the bungie cords. It is necessary to keep them tight because I am using a 600lb ballast box which if left loose will swing from side to side and can damage the 3pt mount when it fetches up.

Thanks, Brian! I don't have too much side sway, they won't reach the tires. May be a while yet before I can get the hoses plumbed in and get to try it out. I have put some plugs in the openings for now, keep dust and bugs out. But, I got it running and brought it home for now. I'll most likely have to take it some where to get the hoses made up.
