I would like to thank everyone for their input and encouragement.

I also want to thank Leonard at Sheaffer's Town & Country Tractor

for his help with parts. I also want to thank Wyn at NCW tractor parts

for his insight and knowledge about the KE70 engine along

with finding some of the parts I needed. I would recommend

both to anyone looking for parts.

Thanks everyone. Here are a few pictures of some parts

I ordered last week from the local Massey Ferguson dealer.

Two hood latches and a new 4 wheel engagement decal.

After some research I believe that except for the

engine a Massey  1120 tractor is close to

my Iseki / Bolens.

I owned a G174 I bought new in 1989 for 21 years. Never had a problem solid stout tractor. Worked my 8 acres, pulled logs, bush hogged 3 acres and scraped my 1/4 mile drive. You will not be disappointed with the work you have a great machine.

some more transmission assembly.  I fell asleep making it.

I was installing the bearings on the PTO shaft at the begining

of this video and I was warming the bearings on a 100 watt

light bulb and that's why I am wearing a glove. This video

was longer but my camera was acting up and I

did not know it until I watched the video later. I am going

to get the good parts from the tape and if they are

any good I'll Post them.

I finally have all of the dents and dings out of the hood.

I have sanded off all of the old paint and straightened

it as good as it is going to get. The hood looks like

it could be made of stainless steel. I could remove

all of the paint and buff the steel parts and then

clear coat everything and I could rename it

to Bolorean.   Ha Ha! here a few pictures.

From the photos its hard to tell about the metal but it looks to be in nice condition. You do realize that your about done with this project. That is going to leave a void in your life. What's next on the project list?

I know the feeling, had to fight it off ...(for now..) We can reflect back on pics of the clean metal, I guess.  :D  :good_job:

Well, I have a Pennsylvania Panzer that I need to finish painting but I really need

to tear down and rebuilt the porch on our house.
