Worked about 6 hours on it today. Sandblasted the frame, man that is some hard paint to get off. Then I put new bearings in the mule drive and took the tires off the wheels. I worked on getting some of the dents out of the fenders. I ran out of blasting material so I have to get some more before I can finish. It is supose to rain tomorrow so I don't think I will get much sandblasting done.

Dan, are these the pieces you're looking for?




Oh, I removed the arm rest pads, and tried cleaning up the chrome a little. Will still need re-chromed, but at least it looks better than it did before!

Let me know what you want.

Yes that is the right pulley. I already have those belt guides, I will have to see if I can find a picture of what I am talking about. I sent you a PM

I did some more sandblasting today and then primed a few parts. It was hot under that hood. This thing is going to be a pain to paint with all those little parts. I can't put it all back together as I wont be able to get all the parts covered.

Sounds good Dan, I'll get everything together. Let me know if you come up with anything else that you might be needing.

Some more sandblasting tonight. I have gone through 150 lbs of blasting material. That is some tough paint.

Little parts are a pistol aren't they? Looking good so far, and :thumbs: to the progress.

As for the old, hard paint... A lot of guys will etank stuff for a while to loosen things a bit, make the blasting work a little easier.

Dan,

Try spraying all of the areas to be stripped, with Easy-Off oven cleaner, and let it sit for an hour. Then try blasting, and see if it makes a difference.

More sandblasting and priming tonight. I did spray some of the metal with oven cleaner and I think it helped a little but boy does it stink! I hope to get it all sandblasted and primed by the weekend.

Yeah, sorry Dan, I guess I should have mentioned the stinky part. After you use it a couple of times, you don't mind it as much.

Another night of sandblasting and priming. I worked on the Massey electric 3 point lift while the air compressor was building up.

I spent the best part of the day sandblasting and priming. I got it all done except the hood and hitch. I ran out of sand. I did discover one thing, I had been using the black blasting material I got from Menards it did not cut the paint very well so I tried some silica sand and it made a big difference. I wish I had done that 4 bags ago. The only problem is you are not suppose to breath in silica dust so you have to wear a mast under the hood. It is already hot enough. Now it is time for some sanding and painting. I sure hope I can figure out where all those parts go, there are a lot of pieces to that tractor.

Well I got back to work on the B10 today. Finished sandblasting the hood and hitch then primed them. I got all the cream stuff painted and in a few days I will clear coat them. Then I can paint the yellow, still waiting on some parts so I can paint them but they should be here in the next couple days. Boy I hope I can get this thing back together there are a lot of parts to this thing.

I got a box full of parts today, now I can finish the project. I still have tires to buy and decals to buy and a few other parts that I am sure I don't know about yet. But it is coming along fine, I should show some progress in a few days.
