Thanks Keith, I checked Tractor Supply they have one listed that looks 'doable' for $16. SKU 1185340 since the id is 5/8" I'll have to get a bushing to get it to the required 1/2" but that is no big deal...I'll let ya know how this turns out but lookin good so far...

Contact the folks at Bearings Inc. if TSC does not work out.

http://www.bearingsinc.net/default.asp

They will most likely have what you need . Fast , friendly and a great place for bearings and power transmission products. I shop there fairly frequently.

Ok, so last weekend I got the trailer 'done' well this weekend it is time to 'wrestle' with the tractor, attempting to get it closer to done...and at least get it running, which shouldn't be to hard, I kinda went over everything, points, plug, etc...along with the coil getting the required voltage at the coil so... after I filled the 'rear end' with the hydraulic fluid, I got the 'hankering to fire this beast up...so...well here goes nothin...


Funny story...I fire the thing up again, cycle the hydraulics and say...hey lets see if this moves? So, I start it up, move the shift lever forward...and nothing? Hmmm, maybe I missed something??? So, I double check and add some more hydraulic fluid to it, Same thing...no movement! Everything else seems to work just fine...then I go about 'cleaning my workspace, on the basketball court in the back yard. And decide to look at my parts left over...oh ya, the 3 foot pedals...LOL so I 'start it again' and move the foot pedals and viola...like magic it moves just fine sometimes you forget even the most basic stuff LOL

Word to the wise, I didn't have my automotive clear here at my house, so I decided to go to tractor supply and grab some of their clear lacquer, I hadn't tried any of that yet so I figured for $14 why not. So, I put it in one of my detail guns and put on a nice 'wet coat', It didn't take much at all and the part looked pretty good, Problem is that was yesterday, So I waited, overnight and it was shiny as anything ...however it was kind of 'soft', so I waited more...I'll check it again tomorrow then attempt to reassemble the part...

Moral, the clear lacquer sprays and covers well, but takes forever to harden up...GL

I thought that stuff needs an activator? Was it the Valspar stuff?

No, I'd asked if it required an activator ot hardener and was told 'no'...Since I've read it could take a couple weeks to fully 'cure' = it was 'magic' bramd... cant help but wonder if a bit of lacquer thinner would reduce cure times?

Kind of a big breakthrough for us Ford guys this evening. I had contacted my friend who was at the World Championships in Switzerland and has been doing custom fiberglass for 35 years. He has a $30,000 Fiberglass CNC machine he called and said he would be happy to help ...so it looks Like the Grilles and battery covers will be at our disposal shortly...of course I will update as this develops but this was a very important step forward for those who need a grille...or battery cover!!!

Really looks and sounds nice. Just from the sound of your voice I could tell you were grinning from ear to ear. Made me smile as I know it is a great feeling.

You're right! It is a joy all of us get when we turn someone else's trash into treasure. You start with a tractor that over 40 years of use/abuse. Supply it with some time and a few $...and viola like new, realizing they just don't make em like this anymore.

Most folks don't have the time or knowledge to fix these older tractor. That's where we step in and give them the love they deserve!

Question for Ford guys with a Snow Plow ...Does the straight 'tube' to the lift in the rear have a bend in it? I bought a 165 that had a snow plow on it, and the tube that attaches to the hydraulic lift that runt to the front ...Does that tube have a bend in it? Thx

Nevermind...I found the answer in the manual Kenny Submitted for the 'trip plow'...Kenny that is cool Thx...
