Hey;

Was working on the restoring of the UT 34001 and thought I'd post a couple pictures of the progress.
Took a great deal of prep on that 42" Blower, but got it prepped, primed, and painted with that gloss black oil, same as the tractor.


All the best

Boy that sure looks like a Ford nose piece??? The Jakes had a different style grill so they didn't look like an orange Ford, but who cares? The Jake police? Still looks good to me :)

Actually, early 80's Jakes had the Ford grille on them, My dad's old GT16 had that grille and the 1/2 side panels

Hey ;

I got more work done the other day while the skys were clear and winds calm.

I cut the ballast box from construction grade 3/4 plywood, primed it and painted in in gloss oil paint.

While laying out the job, I also picked up 6- 70 pounds bags of tube sand for the rear end ballast to balance out the front end 2 stage 42" blower. Next, I am going to fabricate , then weld the carriage to support the weight of both the box and say a few bags of sand ballast, about 210 pounds or so, as needed. Robust design is what I am partial too. The size of the box will easily carry 4-5 bags of tube sand.

The deck had a few minor pinholes in it. Too think for stick weld so used 3 M structural adhesive. had good luck with it.

Oil paint is a bear to work with, but results good.

All the best

Hey;

Down to the bare frame now. Got to make another clutch rod, the original one is pretty well wore.

Good to see more progress here. I noticed on the deck pics that the rear hangers are adjustable on yours. Hadn't seen that before!
