Well, been working on this and here are the latest photo updates. I should be getting the engine tins done this weekend, if that happens then I'd imagine I could get the rebuilt hydraulic cylinder replaced and be headed towards business with the 'ford'...But the hydraulic cylinder was the welded type and needed the welds cut apart on a lathe. Once that was done, I had new hydraulic hoses made and got new seals today for the cylinder, so hopefully I get the cylinder rebuilt tomorrow and repainted this weekend. (Just a work in progress) So, here are the update photos from the hydraulic lift rebuild...

Good to see some progress here! Best of luck on the cylinder. How are you planning to keep it 'cool' when you weld it back together?

Well Kenny, In this case I realized it was 'a little' bigger than me. So, I talked with my buddy who is a professional Welder, Fabricator. And he said...'no problem', so I'll leave it with him :-) pays to have friends. The guy at the place where I got my seals said to move the piston all the way to the opposite end and Use a heat sink, I am not sure how Bruce will do it but I'll ask when he is done.

That was probably a good move. I some times use my vise as a heat sink. Takes a bit to heat up that thing.

Well, some progress this weekend on the FORD, not only am I making progress on the Hydraulic lift cylinder and hoses, but here are some photos of the 'blue' stuff turning blue again...kinda fitting that the old seat is on the ground in the background...I found a perfect blue seat :-) but we likely won't see that till the rest of this machine is done ...

Me 2, On the scope of things this was a 'much easier' restore, since the engine didn't have to be worked to much. Although pulling it apart to clean and spray wasn't particularly easy. In fact I hope tomorrow lends itself to spraying the engine and perhaps getting the carb on...the goal for this week is to get all the engine 'tins' painted and put back in place...Which is kind of a lofty goal in that 'all the visible and some parts behind others will have to be cleaned. But it is swiftly approaching the 'going' back together stages...

Well I got the engine 'tins' back in place and carb on...so the project is moving forward....also my buddy got the cylinder done so the hydraulic system is just about ready to go back together as well...here are a couple shots of the engine. I cleaned up a bit of the overspray in one of the pics that got on the electric pto...but other than that it is lookin good...and Maple Hunter may have my Kohler decals ready by the Portland show so in 2 weeks it should be lookin like new...lol wishful thinking...

Utah...not sure what the problem is...this is the first I've heard of anyone not 'seeing' my photos...maybe it's your browser configuration...

Well got the cylinder back today...but didn't have a chance to do much with it...hopefully it will be in place this weekend...I asked my buddy about the method...he said simple, take one end weld it on with no piston or rod in it...let it cool completely, the assemble the piston in, slide it to the opposite end, and weld fast...then cool it down and put the assembly in the lathe to make it look better than new...Bruce is a great guy...

I put this pic in my other thread but it really belongs here...I put some clear on the ford trailer today

and did some work on my truck so didn't get a whole lot of tractoring done...
