Great job Chris. I'm glad you got into it and hopefully got some distraction from the "other stuff". I like them both. Congratulations . :thumbs:

*Update* I just got in form the shop. I pulled the motor and I am putting another one on so I can rebuild the original one.

It ran great but burned to much oil for me. It was spitting it out the stack lol.

So I am almost done just waiting for the paint on the block to dry.

It is so nice working on a clean tractor, it was actually fun doing the swap. Then when I get the original built I'll do it all over again :D

Next time I hope the parts tractor is missing pieces and the frame is not included lol.

I just got in from the shop, it's cold tonight (32) all I have left is to mount the gas tank and test it out. It would be funny if this one burns (spits) oil to :D

Only reason I am doing this is because I don't want to have a snow storm come along while I am rebuilding the other engine.

Just a quick update. I am just waiting for the rest of the parts for the k301 rebuild. I decided to get a better rebuild kit and I finally found someone that can bore the block. I compared the cheep kit with a Stens kit I just bought. The quality is 100% better on the Stens stuff!

I decided to go .020 over on the piston and rings. I wasn't happy with the spec being on the low end, so I have another crank on the way. I also bought a Std and .010 undersized rod just in case I wind up having to grind the crank journal. Installing new valves and guides and new crank bearings.

So I am hoping to have everything done by next weekend. We'll see what happens. I have to house sit for my Dad this week as I am sending him on a trip to Florida as a Christmas present. And while he is gone I might try to work on The Gard'n Mast'r (since I keep it at his house) so many things so little time lol.

Nice parts tractors! It would be tough for me to part something out if is mostly complete too. I finally got all the parts for my '65 Moline and I hope to soon start tearing it down to clean it up for paint. I've never had it running so I will try to do that before I strip it down.
Keep up the good work!
