Got a bit more accomplished yesterday before life got in the way. Top side of fender pan is painted, seat bracket is painted, back side of seat is coated. The 1X1's have been pinned at the front ends, I got some 3/16" roll pins. Drilled thru the squares and oversized the holes in the frame by 1/64". That will keep them from roaming around. Welded caps on the ends and painted them.
The neighbor to the shop needed some parts tack welded on a smoker he's building. I traded that for him cutting the centers out of the 'new to me' wheels so I can get the tires off the rims.
Got an andriod cell phone and upgraded the service. As soon as I learn how to work the camera and camcorder, I'll have it to use. It's a ZTE Score. A bit intimidating, but I'll get it figured out.

Got some more small parts prettied up. Have to have the 3-point finished before I can go much further.
I don't want to take too much off until I am ready to complete the frame.

I pulled the lift helper spring out yesterday and cleaned it up. Got a coat of the Rust reformer on it. I will put the semi-gloss black on it today. I got the tires off the donor rims and plan to cut them today. I'll take more pics of this. I just need to double check the width I want to go to.
I painted the seat yesterday. But I'm saving that for a wow factor. Looks darn good.
I have been studying turning the engine around. I don't think that can be done, as I would have to move it further forward. This may cause problems with the front grille and hyd. pump mounting. I don't have the stub shaft as yet, so can't really get an idea of where it might go. Plus, doing a 180 with the engine will mean new, longer throttle and choke. The throttle would be hard to come by.

Goodies are going out Monday , may not have the pump yet though, cutters have not showed up yet.
I think the pump should be mounted on the flywheel side , but this could be a challenging bit if room is tight, I can make the adapter fit the proper pulley for this application , and leave you with a 3/4" keyed shaft for a drive pulley to run the pump, instead of the 1.125 shaft adapter. I'll take a picture or 2 of this later today, it just may require the engine to be turned around for clearance for the pump ?
A few pics of the engine in the tractor , and how it drives now would help cement thinks.

3/4" shaft would be fine, Keith. Not rotating the engine would be a plus for me. Too many things would have to change from engine mount on up. It works fine as is. I have room up front to hopefully mount the pump. I just have to figure out something for a tank. Not sure how big to go and where it will fit.

Keith, here's a couple more from above:

I got the donor wheels cut. This should widen mine to about 10". Spent the rest of the day on the go-kart.

Its been a while since I have looked at this thread. Its coming a long nicely. Raising the fenders looks to have done quite a bit!
