You're very welcome for the engine Dan! Don't forget that the correct flywheel came from Alan. It was a team effort. I'm glad that you're finally getting to start on the resto!

Looks more like a community project which makes it all the more better. Daniel if you document the build like you do your farm life thread not only will it be interesting but I figure I will learn a few things along the way. Even if it does take a year I think it will be a fun project to watch.

I edited the credit post to include Alan. Sorry Alan, I forgot Steve told me the flywheel was from you. Was a lot to keep up with on plow day.

Stole some time this morning after milking to finish the tear-down. She is all apart except for the spindle/axle assembly, and the transaxle. I plan to take the transaxle apart, clean, replace what's needed, & new seals. The shift handle has a lot of slop and I figure I'll find other issues inside. I have another transaxle with good parts.

The engine mount plate has had LOTS of adaptations over the years. I will just weld a plate over all this mess, then drill the simple 4 holes I need for the HH60.

:ditto: Bill said it very well, but for me, I will definitely learn some things along the way :smilewink:

She's all broken down & put away safely awaiting piece by piece restoration. I put all but the frame, wheels, engine, and transaxle in this cabinet, seat base on top of it. As I take each piece & prime it, then the primed part will be moved into one or both of the black wall cabinets till painting time. Will be very slow until good & cold weather arrives.

I like the idea of a cabinet like that. I have parts all over the place when I tear down a tractor.

Neat idea for the cabinets, Daniel. I have parts and pieces scattered all over right now.

That's a great idea! I am currently doing some reorganizing in my garage, trying to separate the race building are from the restore area from the repair area. This is an Idea I will use!

During milking this morning, I got the warning "zig zags" in my vision of a migraine on the way. Used to have them a couple times a month, but not had one in years. I now have a mother of a headache, but went to the shop for some therapy. The V4-6 TEC engine uses an engine mounted fuel tank off to the side. The tank mount the engine Steve brought me had the tank mount off the front, so needed to fab a new mount. I will use a fuel tank off a D4-10, as it will look right with the tractor. I used my plasma cutter to slice out the needed metal for the tank mount, then welded it up. At the point of these pics, I still haven't drilled the lower mount hole, and the hole for the tank's fuel outlet in the center of the carrier plate. Will finish later today if my head will allow it. Please look past my ugly welds, as I did good to weld at all today.
D4-10 tank straps will secure the tank to the mount. I did all the welds on the inside so to leave the outside looking crisp & clean.

That looks great Dan! Do you have a brake, or were the bends done in a vise?

Nice tank mount, Daniel! Doubt I could do that good without a migraine. Good update!

I agree with Kenny, I would work a lot longer to get those results, and when I have a migraine it is all I can do to keep my eyes open. :rocker2:
