I hope that dovetail isn't too low to drag in rough areas (dip?). Kind of hard to tell in the pics.
It's been years since I traveled some of the roads between here and Wichita. I have a route I travel from here to Ponca City, then catch I35 into Wichita. Years ago, I lived in Newton and traveled to Miami OK a lot as my brother and parents lived there. Had a good route at that time.
Have a safe trip.

Wow that dovetail is steep. Hope you don't get it snagged on anything. Have a safe trip

Here are some updated pictures of the garden tractor, i got the blade done, the paint just needs to dry and then i can put the handle on. I put rubber on the cutting edge and it turned out pretty good. I also got one gear box on the mower deck, i am waiting for the paint to dry on the other gear box and i will then get it mounted.
I hope i have this finished Saturday, and then i can get everything loaded Sunday.
I will post more pictures when i get it put together.
Thanks

The paint is going to have several days to dry and it should be fine.
I got the mower deck assembled and i got the blade mounted, i got the engine set in place but it's not bolted down yet. I have one day left to get everything assembled.
Here are a couple pictures

That's really looking sharp. I like the Red and White combo and the red drive parts on the deck are a nice touch. Let us know how the rubber blade edge works out.

Good luck on the reassembly and have a safe trip.

Be sure to get a pic with it and it's new owner.

I made the trip just fine and i got the garden tractor finished.

The engine runs great, this morning it was 18 out and it started right up 1st pull.

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished product.

Thanks for everyone's support and i hope everyone had a great and safe Christmas.
