If I had an old kitchen sink to add this might have helped me too  :D

Got her all done now, well worth my efforts.

Yeah Kenny the fonts are different. This GT started out just make some repairs & make it work. I decided to do an off the frame nut & bolt rebuild to get it back to near new or better. This dash decal is vinyl, the quality & colors are very nice so I'm happy with it.  If I was doing a restore I would be more picky.

P5310249.JPG P5170210.JPG done some research to find out the tractor is in fact a ROVER rancher 2 , made in the 70's

But still can not find any extra attachments for it !

Since I am on hold with the Jake, I turned my attention to my Allis tractors. Still had some gas seapage from the tank, so I grabbed a tube of Seal- All and daubed that over everything. It's holding water real good, so time to try that again. I also built a one-point hitch (sleeve hitch) so I can use these for more than just mowing.

Spent some time today working on tractors.  Tried to start two Tecumsehs and they don't want to turn over fast enough in this cold (currently 20 F) weather.  Managed to get the "dump" Massey Hydro to crank, so pulled the mower deck off it and put on the snow plow.  Weather guessers don't know what is happening Monday night, but some sort of winter precipitation is in the works.  Have to wait and see.

Put a new battery in the Wizard and moved the 1920 Ultima so I can get the Wizard in the garage to get ready to plow the snow we're supposed to get tonight.

Last night at 9pm, removed the front dump bucket, installed the snow blade on the Sears in prep for the snow storm that's hitting right now. Son is off school today, better be clean when I get home :rolling:

During the last snow storm, my Allis spit the drive shaft out when the front flex coupler decided to shred itself.  When this happened the shaft got bent.  To remove the shaft, you have to pull the engine.  So that little fun task aside, my boss heated the shaft with the torch while I took a huge pair of channel locks and bent it back nearly straight.  There is a small wave in the middle but its straight at each end and lays nice on the bench.  I painted the shaft after it cooled and called it a day.  Tomorrow after a few other tasks, I am going to pressure wash the chassis before we lower the engine back in. I am replacing both flex couplers and one of the 2 rear engine iso mounts as it was quite soft.   I will try and take some pics tomorrow, was to ticked off at it today to remember to snap a few.   Mike

That 'small wave' could cause an 'out of balance' issue and take out the couplers again. Keep an eye in it.
