Wow impressive work there. You going to shoot the engine with some OEM color?
Thanks and I am going to paint the engine the oem color. The tractor
is going to get repainted to the correct color as I repair things.
While I have the hood off I'm going to sandblast and repaint it also.

with a new exhaust. Just a proto type mini stack.
After 10 hrs a day programming and running CNC machining centers
and CNC turning centers not to mention all types of repairs
to these machines, Its hard to stop the brain from trying to
find solutions to things that already work and don't need fixed.

went to PA last week and found a fellow in his 70's who has 16 pennsylvania
and copar tractors. I saw 10 myself. He had 4 as he called them round hood
tractors. ( T70 & T75's ) I did not see the copars as
they were way back in another shed.
I saw 4 1012 meteors that were restored just sitting around the yard/field.
These are the hydro models. He had an unrestored meteor sitting there
that he just bought for $200. He had a 1110 panzer that was converted
to a long utility vehicle with flat bed with sides. The most fascinating
tractor was a 1012 meteor that was converted to a 4 wheel drive
articulating tractor with power steering. The rear axle also could
pivot over rought terrain. I went out to find this fellow at the
last minute and did not have my camera. He did say I could
come back sometime and take all the pictures I wanted.
He said he has snow/dozer blades and 6 or 7 mowing decks.
I DID ask if anything was FOR SALE to which he said NOOO!!!
Just got back for PA this evening and I was able to get
pictures yesterday. There are pennsylvania tractor everywhere.

This is two tractors to make this 4 by 4 . The front is a meteor and the rear is
a panzer. It articulates in the middle and has a drive shaft to connect the
differentials and the rear half also pivots to go over uneven terrain.
It has a power steering unit mounted to the engine to opperate
the hydraulic cylinder for the steering. It has a hand made hood
made from diamond plate as well as floor plates made from
diamond plate. The diamond plate is stainless steel.
The fellow that owns this has put a lot of work in to
building this and when I was there in August he drove around to
show me how it worked. It is cool!
