Installing the new dash turned out to be more of a of project than I thought it would be, so I did't get to the rest of the things I was wanting to do today.
Wasn't anything that was hard...just time consuming, plus I was figuring out what I was needing to do as I went along.
I got all the switches, etc. removed/disconnected and put the new dash on, When I went to put the Temp gauge in the dash, I ran into a problem. Couldn't see any way to get the connection to the thermocouple in the block loose, so ended up taking the dash back off...taking the thermocouple out of the block, threading it thru the hole in the dash, then reinstalled the thermocouple in the block, and then remounted the dash. It was the good old 3 steps forward 3 steps back routine.
Anyway, as I got to the last thing, putting the ignition switch back in, I ran into yet another problem. The ignition switch needs a larger hole than is in the dash. I'm going to have to work on that, but for the time being I can open the hood, hold the body of the switch and get the tractor started. In the vid, you will notice a ticking after the engine shuts down. That's the fuel pump, and I didn't get the hood open and the switch to off until after the vid ended.
Anyhow here's the vid. If you check out the the first minute or so of the walk around vid you can compare the difference.
