Looking good, I guess this is going to be the Roto-Tiller tractor.
Where's the fuel tank on it? I notice the engine has no fuel pump on it.

Nice fab work Will! So the axle pivot is integral to the oil pan?


Yes it is part of the pan. A bit of an odd design, but I think it should last a while now.

A nice big tank sits above, and behind the engine.
It'll also be back up mower.

I got the rear PTO shaft back on, with new bearings, front and back.
I didn't want to spend the money, for the intermediate carrier bearings, so I made some out of wood.
Front one is Teak, back one is Oak.

Some of these had wood bearings there, so you're staying within 'bounds'. Cool option if you have plenty of stock to make them from.

Hey Will! I came across this pic of a Jake that the guy built a new metal grille for. Thought I would show it to you.

That looks pretty good. Thanks Kenny. I wonder if he has some sort of steel frame behind it.
How'd he secure this at the bottom to the tube frame?

I really don't have any more on it at the moment. I'll see if I can scrounge up some more info for you.

Here's another pic of the grille. I can't see how he attached it.

He's got the 5 holes at the bottom, but I can't see any fasteners in the pic of it installed. Must
have some sort of studs welded to the grill.
Nice job he did there.


I got the tiller mounted and running last night. All is good there. If it doesn't rain, I'll test it this evening.
I also gave the tractor, a 2 can, 1 hour paint job. It looks ok, from the far end of the shop. :D

Thanks Kenny for the lift arm dimensions

Glad the tiller is working! I looked on the parts breakdown for the hood and grille to see how these are mounted. I have no idea what he did to mount that metal grille, unless he supported the part that bolts to the top of the motor to the frame somehow. Then the grille just attaches to that. I did ask in a comment on the pic, need to see if he answered yet!


EDIT: I went back to the pics, no answer. The pics date to 2 years ago, so that person may not be back for a bit. All I can think is that he used the lower holes to attach it, just didn't have fasteners in when the pics were taken!

Well, I've done all that needed to be done with this old girl.
It runs good, and I tested the tiller tonight. Sister inlaw, was happy, when
I tilled up her garden.

It's not the prettiest, but it all works, so I'm going to give it to my oldest daughter for her
upcoming birthday. I'll go over the deck for her, some time this winter.

She looks great as-is to me Will! Mechanical is the main thing to complete anyway. That is a great seat for hillsides! No sliding out off the seat with that one!
