Nothing special but some before, during(got side tracked) and after for the brackets. One set goes on the axle and the other set goes under the seat pan. Hopefully I can get them on the tractor tonight.

If I leave the arms the length they are this is how far they will stick out behind the tractor. Seems a little far. I've decide to build a sub frame that comes from the axle up the back of the tractor to the top of the seat pan. I think that will be the easiest way to mount everything with out disturbing to much of the tractor.

I don't think that emu is too sure about what's going on here...

Getting the holes drilled and the mounting bracket fitted. I'm against the clock with the weather. Need this done by the weekend. The right bolts on the axle are longer than the left.

This is where I'm ending the night. Does the lift rod connect to the bracket on the right of the dash tower?

I haven't welded in a couple years so hopefully they hold. Something happened during fab and I'm 1/16 if a inch off on the top link mount. It wouldn't be noticeable if that sticker wasn't there.

Looks like it is going good. I'm not sure on a 1650 where the lift bar hooks up.

From what I can see, the welds should hold David.  Having never owned that model, I can't say where the lift rod attaches.

OK, with that pic I can safely say your welds are gonna hold just fine!  Nice bead!

She's old but good. I got the pins mounted. I went with cat 0 since I may come across some correct arms at some point. After lunch is rock shaft time.

Our farm shop welder is that exact century welder, except we don't have the high frequency adapter like yours has added.  Dad will likely still use ours, but I'll mostly use my Hobart Tigwave 250.  It's AC settings are so much smoother than the Century, but then it's a way more expensive welder from those days.

I dont use the stabilizer.

Here is what I've got so far. The link that connects to the lift arm is to long and hitting the fender so that's got to be trimmed.

So I've bitten off more than I can chew. I have limited tools or the ability and the hitch shows it. It's crooked in a few different ways. I got the lift rod threaded and ends put on. I bolted everything back up. All I have to do tomorrow is install the lower arms and do I full test.

A little crooked in a few places doesn't matter as long as it works.   :thumbs:
