Well, I cut part of the list. Got some time this afternoon. Got the front axle and motor mounts back in. Centered the steering back up and set toe to a little in. May need to adjust after it is on the ground. Looked at the pump mount. May need to do some trimming here and there. Got the second wheel finish welded together, some cleaning of the welds needs to be done before painting them. All-in-all a good day. Things are going back together!
Oh yeah, got the new cylinder and valve. Now to figure where to put it.

No pics, but I got the rear wheels ready for finish paint. Going to Wichita tomorrow, won't be back until Thursday sometime. So no updates until Friday!

Looking good Kenny! It's always a lot of work bringing an old tractor back to top shape. You know some problems but then others always come up to slow you down. It's going to be a really nice rig when you're done!

You find lots of things once you tear one down! I have a few things I am not going to address right now, painting the varidrive pulleys being one. I can pretty that up later. Thought I was going to Wichita today, but that may be on hold. May be flu in the house that I want no part of. If I can, I will get the widened rears painted. Then I can see what that gained me for clearance at the 3-point. I need to look over all four front wheels I have and pick the best of the litter for this, get them painted. Then I can put it back on the floor.

Keep up the progress Kenny. I was told you can't install tires on painted wheels for a couple days or you may never get them off. I think its a myth, want to bust it for us? Lol

What I have done thus far on wheels is paint the insides, let dry a couple days. Then mount tires and use paper to mask them while I do the face of the wheel. Haven't had to take one back apart since painting, so don't know how hard they will be to break down. Paint usually has at least 36 hrs. to dry before adding air.

Be a couple days, Casey. All they have on them at the moment is the Rust Reformer. I'll squirt the insides where the tubes go tomorrow. Hope we get some sun, haven't seen it for a couple days!

Okay, here's a sneak peak at the wheels. Tomorrow, I will have a rolling chassis. WooHoo!!!!!!! I will have to put most of it back together so I can figure out where the Hydraulics will work at.

Looks good, Kenny! Those tires definitely sit on those wider wheels more comfortably! Nice job on those!

Yeah, Ryan, they fit much better! I just want to see how well they fit on the tractor. Should have gained some more inside room. Pics tomorrow!!!!
