Well, I couldn't get time to work on it yesterday but today I took all 10 ball bearings out of the walnut grinder and put the clutch back together. It took me an hour or so to get all of those little suckers back in ( because for some strange reason my thrust collar doesn't have the insert hole like Dano's) and adjusted it like amigatec said (thanks by the way!) I was so disappointed when I started to turn the pulley and the hubs weren't moving, only to find out my dad had engaged the clutch, and was so excited I didn't know what to do when he engaged it and the hubs started spinning! Now, all that's left to do is prime and paint the rims and new engine (thanks again amigatec) and get my new tires for my birthday! It ought to be a purdy gal when she's done, and I'm looking forward to the finished product! Pictures coming soon, and thanks for all the help and support through this project guys! It's times like this I'm glad I have found this forum and have all these guys that are like family to help me into this hobby!

After you get it running and put a load behind it, you may have to adjust the clutch a bit more. Mine pulled good, until I tried to plow, it had to tighten it to the next flat spot of the nut.

No one is more focused than an owner making a repair for the second time. :thumbs:
