Nice progress you have going here! I wonder if that shroud cover had a zee bend at the bottom to hold it in opposite the bolts?

Instead of sitting around watching the Superbowl tonight,I went out and got some more done on the 1100. So much more fun!!! I got the engine torn down as far as I need to so I can paint it.

I cleaned up the all the cooling fins and blew all the crud out of them. There is some paint down in between the fins, but I got all I could. Do you guys think they are clean enough?

After that, I took all the engine tin; cleaned it up and primed it.

The flywheel shroud soaking.

All primed and drying.

The last thing I did today was take apart the fender pan.

Battery box is a little rusty. LOL. Definitely goingto need to rework it.

The new ISO mounts came today also. Should be a big improvement over the old ones.

Paint should be here sometime next week;I'm hoping.

Nice progress. Thank you so much for doing something about that paint job!

Looks like some good progress. I'm a little curious as to your solution, also!

It's a secret solution passed down for years....  Just kidding, it is just water as hot as I can get it.Looks impressive though with the steam rising out it.

Looking good.  I would say the fins are clean enough.  I usually clean them as good as I can get with a wire brush and then paint them.

Looking good!

 

I think that as long as you wire brush the fins the best you can, you will be fine; just make sure you use a brush that has wires long enough to reach the bottom. :thumbs:

Been a few days since I have worked on the 1100. The paint arrived a couple of days ago,but today was the first time I had a chance to do some spraying. It came out pretty well. I am goingto apply 1-2 coats of paint, then assemble, then give it one coat with it back together.

 Made a bit of progress today. I got the frame done and attached the front axle and tires to it. I then got the transmission hung up along with the steering column and some other misc. parts. After painting all those parts in red I gave the rear wheels another coat. They aren't coming out as well as I would have liked because I didn't have a sandblaster to remove the paint on them. The red is going on extremely nice though.

Looking good with the paint! I am surprised that the rear hubs only use 3 lug bolts!

Thanks!!! This tractor was IH's answer to a lower priced garden tractor. That is why it has the Peerless rear end and a Briggs and Stratton engine. I considered putting a 3 speed Cub Cadet rearend in it but all I plan on doing with it is mowing. Therefore,I can't see the need for a heavy duty rearend and there is one more speed in the Peerless anyway.
