With the back wheels back on the 112 I had also threw a quick
coat on the fronts as they had been done before and just needed
some touching up.
Then to the slipping drive belt. After two hours of lubricating, adjusting trial and error decided
it's time for a set of new drive belts . So that's now tomorrow's chore. This has been
the never ending project since I bought it that's why it sat for two tears before I got back to it.

Last spring I went to the John Deere dealership  to buy new drive belts for my 112 and was really surprised  at how affordable they were. The old belts that came with the tractor were in terrible shape but still seemed to work fine. I was pushing dirt with the front blade when one disintegrated. I think I got lucky and the variator worked perfectly. Don

Yes I could go on the flat but any incline with the extra weight of the tiller on
the back now made the drive. Let's just start slipping. Tried belt dressing and
several adjustment attempts but still didn't work. This thing has frustrated me since I bought
it but it's the closest to running and driving than ever. Just don't see to many for sale so
I really wanted to get it going. It's got new valves, cam, piston , points, coil, condenser
carbs been rebuilt and now new drive belts.
Luckily I live close to my parts and info supplier!and already had the belts here
I put them on today just need time to get the adjusted now.

Tightened the hub set screws on the roper rt16...

Only found out they were loose because the rear tire slid in towards the tractor

Moved a few machines out and got the 69 444 from the back. Tightened up a few hose clamps, bolted up the filled ags, and added the 3 point. When I get back from grabbing my kids, going to install new front wheel/tires. She's starting to look better.

I was wrenching on my Pick-up today , needed some new plugs and wires , trying to eliminate a periodic miss now and again.

I had to go into the garage for a tool , as busy as I was , I stopped and absorbed a little bit of 'Rusty' for a minute . :D

Made me think of the day I first rolled him out on his new shoes

Maze some spacers for the axles and added some narrow front wheels and tires to my 69 444PK. Going to paint those rims once i get some tri rib tires for them soon. Only couple more things to do on her and it'll be ready to play.

PS: 1655 next to her makes the Case look kinda small haha.

another pre x/mas problem Rover Rancher 2 , idler shaft( counter shaft) in drive line started to collapse .  20161221_172338.jpg  20161221_172448.jpg     

 

Nothing open to  get new bearings so up to the garden shed and raided the bearings container , found a couple good tidy bearings to replace  with ,

 

The bearing housing never had a grease nipple so i fitted the bottom bearing then filled the hub center with grease to lube the bottom bearing which works the hardest then reassembled .

 

Also few days later broke the main drive V belt on it & had to replace it too .

This post is more like "what did you do FOR your tractor today"---LOL! I finally started getting rid of some junk like an old refrigerator that was a paint storage cabinet so I could move a particle board cabinet where it was. There was one more old computer hutch beside it that I had junk stored in that had to go too, so more crap for a dump run. That opened up a hole big enough where the 12G can park by the shop wall instead of in front of my welding table. I know some of the junk going to the dump will be needed soon as it's unloaded but it has to go! I need the room!

Didn't do it TO a tractor yet, but I acquired a set of ags and a mold board plow recently. Gonna order the sleeve hitch soon. Finally going to make a plow day this year!
