Just think someone probably worked very hard to cut off that piece for what ever reason and you just had to restore it like new. :bigrofl: :poke:

Yeah, I'm starting to feel bad for it, and for filling the 9 holes they drilled in the frame too! :rolling:

You'd never regret buying one Will! My whole outfit, with extra consumables & shipping set me back about $1350, but let me tell you....worth every penny! Mine is a Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 52. 1 1/4" max rough cut, 1/2 clean cut. I absolutely love it!

Been messing with the Jacobsen, so nothing more on the V4-6. I did however order a gallon of acrylic enamel for the Bush Hog & other stuff. It's a bright red, but got it much cheaper than Massey Red in acrylic enamel. Local paint shop wanted $130/gl, and the same ebay seller as I bought this from wanted $128/gl. Bought this "Hot Red" in acrylic enamel delivered for $87!

Here's a good pic of this very paint on a car.

Bad news & good news. Remember the parts engine I bought off ebay? I had hoped I could use it's crank in the engine Steve brought so I could use the ring gear flywheel Alan sent. Well, it came today, and the cranks flywheel retaining threads are all broken off except for 1/4" or so of threads. :( That's bad news. The good news is this ring gear flywheel on the ebay engine matches the taper on Steve's engine! This ebay engine has what looks to be a good stator too. :dancingbanana:
I now have everything needed to complete this engine except for a starter. I thought I had one, but do not. I have plenty of time to round one up, so I'm not concerned. I bought this engine to get the carb adapter plate, the governor arm assembly, stator, flywheel or crank, and some other small bits.

Forgot to add that I've ordered a lot of stainless steel bolts for this project. The SS I put on the D4-10 set me back over $75 at TSC! This time I found an ebay seller & for just a little LESS, I got enough for 2 to 3 tractors!

Sounds like a good deal. That stuff adds up in a hurry. Does he sell a selection, or did you have a specific list?

He sells in small lots or large lots, and inbetween. Here is a link to his metric stainless line for the ELF. From there you can search his SAE line. No real grab bags of different sizes, you have to order specific sizes. There are some selections in washers which contain 2 to 3 sizes.
http://stores.ebay.c..._sid=1012903942

For a restore that won't see much or no true work, the stainless is much easier to keep the tractor looking new. Painting regular bolts before use just ends up in chipped paint, and it's hard to paint them after tightening. No paint, and they end up rusting. SS ends that problem, plus adds some flash.
