Put the dozer on the Ford 120 for the first time since i bought it today. Found that I was missing a lift link as well as some of the mechanism to angle the dozer. Manufactured the missing pieces from scrap metal I had laying around. Quite pleased with the results.

Finally got some time, without pouring rain. too get my hands dirty on the Springfield. Can't for the life of me see why it won't start. Time to start looking into ways to clean that tank.

Started to change the muffler and get it in closer to the side of the engine.  Removed the brake assessable to put new pads on.  Measured the link belt to get the length that I need.  Engine change back down the road messed things up a little.

Took the 48" deck off the 1920 Ultima, getting it ready for the hitch and bucket to come.

The Springfield is running!!!!!!! Went outside with a can of WD40 and a toothbrush. Took off the carb and did a clean up job. put a little gas in the carb and it hit on the first pull. Washed some gas through the tank and washed the loose rust out. Hooked it all back up then two pulls and it was running. Hopped my ecstatic back side in the seat and took a few spins through the yard and in he street.

 

I was transported back in time before 1982 only I was the old man on the little tractor and Isabella was the wide eyed kid watching.

 

Its by no means all of the way right. It has a god awful vibration when I let the go pedal out. Still have to clean the tank right and that tired old motor is going to need a rebuild or maybe a repower since its not original anyway. It spit and sputtered, belched and farted but it ran. I couldn't have been happier if I was driving a $100,000 Lambo.

Last night, I brought the derelict sears with the loader on it and with the kids help, pulled the loader off.
One of the PO's had permanently added weight to the back plate, so I will be making that into a removable piece on the next FEL tractor.

I've decided to put it on the Roper 18t unless there is a big unknown reason why I can't.

I would think it would work on there. Very similar to what it came off of.
