well I sprayed primer on the main frame and the fender-seat piece and it orange pelled bad. I'm useing a new gravity feed guns instead of the regular old pressure gun and have a tough time with it. I might go back to the old gun even though it drips paint. But I think I know what the problum is now. The primer called for 50psi but once I hit the trigger the pressure gauge is waayyyyy tooooo slooowwww to let the pressure to the gun, so I will have to get a new pressure gauge with a higher volume rate or go back to my old 30 gal. air compressor.

I always set my regulator while pulling the trigger halfway, to where you just get air. I always get drop once the trigger is pulled, so just set it while holding the trigger & you'll be fine.

Here are a couple of more pictures. Almost have it all back togeather. Had trouble with the transaxle, I had to replace one side of the axle houseing as something had wore a hole through it before I got it. I thought somehow that was how water was getting in and past the seal to make the axle oil milky this last winter, but while snowblowing I noticed snow melting on the shifter, so anyone who was out in the snow may need to check there rear fluid. Second gear was hard to catch so I had new springs to put in the detent but they were all good, the problem is that the gear is too wore. It will have to do for now. After putting in new seals and bolting the axle sleeves on I dicovered one of the bolt holes was stripped. I found a longer bolt and got about 1/4" of thread.

How the heck did that trumpet get worn like that?
Tractor is lookin great. That's going to be a head turner, when it's done, wearing the
yellow tin.
Yeah, those gears look pretty rough. Start looking for a donor.

That looks like someone ground that for clearance, just got too deep. Paint looks good thus far.
I have to agree on the gears, lots of grinding been going on! What rear end is this?

The yellow is going to be really sharp looking with the flint gray frame. I am anxious to see it finished. I can't believe how wore that axle tubing is.

Isn't that wear about where the frame mounts on? Wonder why they'd do that?

The wear is on the under side. I thought it was from the rototiller pto shaft but there's not a mark on the shaft. The picture's not to good but it appears that something else was running unattnded and rubbing on it. Guess I'll never know. I haven't looked up any numbers on the rearend yet. The replacement tube came off a JD.

Well it's pretty much done. Still need to get the tail light, dust caps, some flange bolts for one of the footrests, and down the road another jack shaft as this one had been broke and brazed back, repalce some tranny gears and add an electric lift for the back so i can run the manual for mid and front use. The Massey yellow in the pic's looks lighter than it realy is. So it has a 16hp Tec, Cub Cadet narrow front wheels, a light switch and one axle housing sleeve from a JD and a steering wheel from a MF1450, and an after market seat. Here is one before pic also.
