Just a few minutes shop time today. One or all of the former owners of this must have got a new drill, as they popped about 10 various holes into the dash tower, plus cut a slot for a standard style throttle lever. I cut a piece of metal to fit the slot hole, and wire welded it in place from the back side. Then I used a piece of brass as a backer & weld filled all the holes. Sorry, was raining, so didn't take the camera out there.

LOL! You made me choke when I read the comment about a new drill. It reminded me when I bought my dad his first dewalt drill driver. He loved it so much he was making shelves for his kitchen using it and dry wall screws. He literally had a screw every 1/2"!! he said he got carried away because he never used one before. :D :D

Chris, if I'm remembering right, I filled around 15 holes, plus the slot! Did your Dad ever own a V4-6 Bush Hog? :bigrofl:

Time consuming, fixing up stuff like that isn't it. By the time you've welded, ground the welds,
touched up the welds, re ground, sanded, spot filled, sanded, re spot filled, and sanded, you
probably could have drilled 50 more holes.

Oh, and by the way...if I don't change my plans, this V4-6 will get a Bush Hog front blade restored & mounted to stay on it. It doesn't have rear pto or a deck, so it's the perfect candidate for the push blade.

Somebody told me once that your suppose to have 1 tractor for 1 attachment.
Not suppose to switch attachments on the tractor.

Course, he has more $$$ than me.

Not really, but at the prices of red paint, I got this 1/2 price, so I'll go with it. Once I spray some, then I can see how far it is from OE.

Better bring the spreader, too. You'll need to keep the pile down!
