I'd like to post a video, but someone lost the patch cord. Aargh.

Darn the luck! Hope you find it soon (or a replacement)!

I think "they" will, now that I've suggested (again) that the vidcamera is no good without the cord. :D

"suggested" huh?



Good to know there are no mosquitoes in the shop now. Can't be too careful with that West Nile stuff.

Goes to show you that the Mayans never worked on a tractor.

Not 100% sure about the lighter yet. I'm not sure if it should be there as OE, but the Execs of that time period
had them, and there is a hole in the dash there, on both mine, and John's.
I just haven't found anything to support this idea. I gotta keep digging for that.

 

You know, I have been thinking that one of those solar chargers, with a male cigarette plug on the end would be a nice way to keep the battery topped off when parked.  Just plug it into the dash socket and let her charge.

That will only work if the charger puts out more than it draws!

Update

 

Now that the Christmas thing is over, I got back at the Elf. I added a .300" shim behind the

clutch pressure plate, and reinstalled the engine/clutch. It works good now. Then I got on to

finishing up the grill/headlights/blinkers.

It's finally starting to look like a tractor.

Oh, I'm sure it'll go down the road, but I'm not going to donate any money to the Gov.

Looking Great Will, Is that a genuine Massey battery?

I see you have sneaked a couple of bits of Massey red in there

Cant tell from the pics but have you got the wedges under the front indicators to make them perpendicular rather than follow the profile of the Alu grill

I guess I'm a bit late in asking this, but some pics of this clutch set up would have been nice to see. Maybe Gav has some? I'd like to see how it attaches to the engine, besides the innards.

The tractor is looking great, Will! Hope it gets to make a few shows.
