My brother stopped with the sandblaster yesterday on the way home from delivering corn to the feed mill.My grandfather had 2 barn yard gates there that we dropped off in march for sandblasting and powder coating.He told him that they need to be done by sat or we're picking them up and taking them elsewhere.He also told him about my frame.It hasn't been there as long but long enough for just sandblasting.So we'll see what happens this week.Hopefully it'll light a firecracker in his a** and get it done.I'm keeping my fingers crossed.I'd like to get it back together while it's still fresh in my memory.

My brother and dad stopped to pick up the gates at the sandblaster.Guess what they weren't done.They picked them up anyway,like he said he would.They're getting done elsewhere. He said that he wanted my frame done a.s.a.p.The owner put it back in the blasting barn to do first thing monday.I stopped mon after work and it was done.Brought it home and threw a coat of primer on everything.I found a crack in the frame that needs repaired at the back.I primered it any way so it wouldn't rust.Tommorrow i'm going to grind a v in the crack and wire wheel the primer off so my brother can weld it.I'll get pictures tommorrow.The fender pan looks alot rougher than i remember.I'll have to do some body work on it.

That's a real shame about the crack Craig. Tell you what I'll do for you. Since you and I are good friends, and we are always looking out for each other, I'll come up tonight and take the whole tractor off of your hands, and eliminate any current and future problems for you. What time would suit you to come up?

All kidding a side, it is a shame about the crack, but I know you'll be able to get it repaired. Glad to hear you finally got your things back from the sandblaster. We probably could have fabricated a new frame for as long as that took.

Yes i know.We could've had a couple frames fabricated.I was hoping to have alot more done on it by this point,but oh well you'll have this.I should be able to get crack repaired this week and hopefully get frame painted this week end.We'll see what happens.

This may well be the first time I've seen a chainsaw used in a restoration.

I like to get creative.Thats how i got the paint off.Actually it was put there sometime after i primed the frame and i didn't move it when i took picture.

Wow, I can't believe how time flies.I had the frame done back in feb.I've had it at my house for about a month now,and am only getting pic posted.The wheels are off being powder coated.I think I put the finish coat on the fender pan today.I'll look at it tomorrow and see how it got,and hopefully bring it home this weekend,and get some pictures of it and post them.Here is the completed frame back together.

It's really looking good Craig. These pictures don't do your work justice. It looks a lot better in person. You're doing great my friend. :thumbs:

I brought the fender pan home tonight.I went and checked it @ 7 last night and it was already dry,but I didn't want to move it yet.So I went and got it tonight.I think it turned out pretty good.

I was looking at jdparts.com to check the part num for the fender deck isolaters,and found that the back 2 holes use these between the frame and the fender pan.The front use bushings and washers.Does anyone know if the isolaters could be used in all 4 corners or do I need to get the bushings and hardware.My fender pan wasn't attached when I got it and all the parts are missing to mount the fender pan.I have 2 isolaters already that I got at an auction in a box lot.I just need to get the stuff for the front.If anyone knows ,or has done this before any pointers would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

ckjakline:

 

I had a 140 H1 for years, and had the fender pan off a number of times. In my opinion you should use the bushings that they say to use. For one thing, I believe the front bolts are carriage bolts (dome top) so you won't catch anthing on them.

 

Also, if someone needs the isolators, I have a set (never used) I would sell cheap.
