I finally got all of the sheetmetal and stuff dropped off at the painter last night........about 2 weeks behind because of all the bad weather.  The body shops down here are EXTREMELY busy with all of the cars that got damaged in the snow storms..........damn people need to learn to drive in it or STAY AT HOME.  Either way, should have it back in plenty of time to get it reassembled and ready for the Alabama Plow Day March 7-8th.  Gonna have to sit down and get all of my parts ordered.  It is supposed to warm up this weekend so I can finally get the 430 out of the garage and pressure washed.  Need to do some touch up paint on the frame and 3 point.  Have the new decals ordered just waiting on the paint to get finished so that they can color match the decals.  Gonna be a busy couple of weeks but will be worth it in the end.

Not so much as you would ''do something'' but i did figure part of the hard starting problem with the Ford 1200, # 1 injector is leaking from head through the injector threads.

      Hello all, I am new here so I will give a brief description of me and my stuff.  Like everyone here I assume, I love old stuff!!!!!  Me and my father have been collecting and using vintage garden tractors for years and I was recently turned on to this site by a friend.  Love what I see.  Now for the nittty gritty of the subject, today I put the rear end of one of my garden tractors back together, we have many old allis chalmers here and the other day we were using the b-112 for snow blowing when the rear started to make terrible noises.  Upon inspection I discovered the gear box was out of oil and the spacer bushing's for the axle had worn into the case.  the variable speed drive was almost worn out, and all the key ways were gone.  After doing some weld buildup here and there and re-machining I put the rear end back together today with the new seals.  Now all I need to do is wait for the woodruff key broach to come in and I can finish is so it will be good to go for another 60 years.   As soon as I figure out how I am going to post some pics of my tractors.  Good luck to all and happy tractoring

Well I had managed to break a couple cross links on the Chains on my Ford1500. Since it was still in the upper 40's when I got home from work last night. I took the chain off the left wheel and repaired it and put it back on. 

Now I think I am ready for the Blizzard they are predicting for Thursday.

Got me some new shoes today. The first time for new tires for me! Now the only problem is I have 3 tractors with 12" wheels. John Deere 140, John Deere 300, and a Case 226. Which ones gets a set?

Yesterday, I got my steering gears and associated parts cleaned on our Huskee Supreme. Today, I re-greased the moving parts & gears and put everything back together.

Im fixen to use the rear pto on my 646 to drive a hydraulic motor coupled to my welder. I will mount the generator on a 3-point setup for easy moving as it is a touch on the heavy side. My present engine is toast and I would rather not have to purchase a new unit. Pics will come as soon as I have something to take pics of.

 

After that comes the three point hitch mounted snowcaster.

After way to long I broke down and... broke down the rear tires on the '72 GT 14. Cleaned up the inside of the rims and tubed the original tires. She is a drivable tractor now!!
