I've not had much shop time at all for quite some time now. With the weather turning cool, crops in, and my plow day in my rear view mirror, I am hoping to start getting some shop time in. I have an endless list of things to do, so I'll have to choose one, as my personal shop can only hold one GT at a time comfortably. First needs to be getting my shop back in order.
I have a V4-6 Bush Hog that now has the correct engine to go into it, thanks to Steve (Caseguy), then I have an Onan from a John Deere 318 to go through. I have a Yanmar diesel to fit into my Massey w/FEL, a Bush Hog D4-10 to assemble from boxes of parts, and a Bush Hog snow blower plus BH rear tiller & BH rotary 3pt mower to restore. Then there's the John Deere 430 to build 3pt hitch for. Not sure which will go in first.
All I do know right now is that it will be nice to be back into the shop for more than a few minutes at a time.

sounds like you will busy for a long time. Dont let the slow days in the shop get you down. I usually take a weeks vacation in the spring and fall with a long list of things I want to get done. A few days of fishing is on the list. By Thursday I have accomplished what I thought would be done by Tuesday. Fishing gets crossed off of the list and I go back to work on monday worn out from 11 days of busting ass thinking I didnt get enough done. Some days in the shop go pretty good and some dont.

Daniel, I hope your shop time is therapeutic, and if I have a vote, I've been waiting to see that erector set of a Bush Hog put back together since you brought it home...

Glad to hear you will have some 'play' time, Daniel. Guess you'll figure out what's first on the list. I'll be watching to see where you start.

I think I have seen "signs" to point me to my next project. It should be my Bush Hog V4-6. The signs pointing me that way were 1: Steve (caseguy) bringing to me at my plow day the correct model engine. 2: Bill (gttinkerer) told me he'd send me a carb & linkages to fit this engine. With those kind of signs, it's obvious where to start. This will be a major restore, every bolt out kind of thing, so I'll also do some other project things as I'm doing all the electrolysis on the V4-6 parts. Thanks Steve & Bill!!!!!! :thumbs:

You could always name the tractor Steve-Olcowhand-Bill but that would be awful long so maybe just use the initials. Think about it.................

Glad to help someone as deserving as you. I still have most of the rest of the HH60 if you need it.

I'm with ya. Sunday we will do our fall separating and medicating of the cattle. Other than some random farm stuff we should be slow. My agenda
1: re do the wiring and service the charger12

2: repaint and service the st10. I think everything is great on this except the paint.

3: find a dash tower and re assemble (possibly re paint) the raider 12.

My goal is to have all this done by garden time next spring.
