Hey Guys, I had to set up a new name on here since the site wouldn't send me a new password.  As you can see I only dropped the S on the name.  Im going to be reserrecting this thread. 

 

Its been about a year since I did any work on the Panzer, till now.  I was at the hardware store the other day and found the small collars that go on the foot rest bar.  Hoping to pull the tractor out tonight and start working again.  So now its time to finish the build.

 

Ill post some pics tonight of the tractor as she sits.

Ok, as promised im going to post some pics of the tractor.  I have finally accumulated enough parts to finish this project.  here we go enjoy!!

 

Im starting of with a set of tires I found, these are a set of Firestone tires pretty close to original.

Here is a shot of the transmission lever, completely rebuilt.  all bolts were replace with zinc dichromate CAT bolts.  The foot pedal was textured for an added look.

Here is the 3/4 inch ID collars that will secure the transmission lever in place, im waiting for 2 more to come in so I can use all 8 as it was originally.  This is also going to hold the foot rest bar in place.  I bought a new foot rest bar from my local Lowes.  Its a 3/4 inch thick bar that will be cut down to size as the next step in the build.

The Panzer has sat in the back of my garage for a year till today,  Oh, the dust!!

Alright guys and gals, feel free to ask questions and or make suggestions.   My goal for this tractor is to be a parade tractor, where I live we have a large parade for the 4th of July, she will no longer have to work but more for show.  I have another year before the next parade, I think this is enough time.

fantastic.

I see the chips in the paint of mine and sometimes wish I'd built it just for show.  Maybe someday when I have a big enough place for 2!

The Tractor Supply by me has new tires that are even closer to the original tire tread.

Ok guys, I need help, with my tires.  How do ya'll get the tires off the rims?  I have done it on regular lawn tires but the small fronts on the Panzer are being a bugger to get off.  Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

If in doubt just cut off the old ones. You bought new tubes right?

For mine, I took the blots out of the so that the rim could come apart. Mine were in rough shape, so I cut them in half, knocked the rim apart and went from there. I used a screwdriver to get in and pry on the bead, after a little bit of work they just slid off.

The small ones can be tough and more so if they are old and hard. Once the bead is broken I use two tire spoons,  If you put the rim in front of you on the floor, and put 1 knee on the tire (part right in front of you, 6'oclock) to kind of compress that area, at the same time put a spoon on the opposite side (top, 12 o'clock) and pull the spoon to lift the bead out of the rim, now put a second spoon about an inch to either side of the first and pry that one back. while doing this push the 6'oclock side of the tire in to the center of the rim to give you as much slack as you can. once you get it started it will go easier. The second side will come of a lot easier. Just be sure the bead is broke( not seated) on both sides before trying to remove them.

 

Also if you are scrapping the tires, once you get the one side off the rim it will make cutting the tire off a little easier.

 

I hope this helps as it is a little hard to explain it. ( for me anyway)

 

Good luck!

I need to get the tubes but I wanted to pain the new rims. 

 

Thank you Chris M, I will try this tonight!
