I am almost finished restoring a 1968 Ford 120 from the frame up.  I striped all parts of all paint.  Primered and painted each part and applied all correct decals.  I tore the engine down to the block and completely rebuilt it and painted it.  All I have left to do is the seat pan, seat and rear light.  Let me know what you think?  P.S.  I do have the starter pully cover (need to paint it before I install it).

Nice job on the 120 Ford Chet. Is there a thread on the restore somewhere?

Rancher 2 g/box was getting noisy so topped it up with grease & oil mix ,the stator stop wire come off it 3 weeks ago so i temporarily hooked a wire under the spark plug lead  and shortened it to earth to stop the engine .

 

so removed the fuel tank and covers to refit the correct wire to the stator then to find when i tested it the stopper switch was now faulty , so then a day later i found another switch to replace it with  , all done now

Rudely awoke the John Deere 300 from its winter sleep...

Then gave it a cold bath to get the mud off...

Called them foul names because they wouldn't start...

But I apologized to the roper, it started. When it was time to park for the night...

Since it's 80° on the porch in the shade, I washed the MTD so I can wax it when it dries! Nearly ready to sell this puppy!

My brake rod on my Bolens H16 broke the other day. Since I only weld outside for right now (too much sawdust) & it being 18 degrees I thought I'll just bend another one. I grabbed a piece of 1/2" round stock & about 30 minutes later here it is.

I awoke the Sears LT4000 from it slumber yesterday! Had to charge the battery some. When I finished, I parked it close to the shop for the Spring oil change! Started fine to warm the engine oil for draining. Afterwards, no go. Hooked the charger back up and pulled the cell covers. AHA! The negative end cell was not bubbling. Got the cell tester out and wouldn't float any of the little balls. Wanna be that way! Turned the charger up to a 40A charge. This is a 360 amp hour GT battery. All cells bubbled except the one on the negative end. HMMMMMMMM? What the heck, it's either gonna charge or blow! Switched it to a 200 amp start cycle. A few bubbles appeared. Switched back to 40A and no bubbles. Okay, if that's how you wanna be, 200A for 20-25 minutes. Bubbles galore, we be charging! Got the cell tester out and 2 were full charge, other 4 at 3/4 or less. Switched back to 40A and still had bubbles in the - end. Left it there for the afternoon. Checked the cells again and had all 6 at full charge. Dropped the charger to 2A for another hour and called it good. We'll see how it does from here.

Sometimes a dead cell isn't really dead, just coated. We use to disconnect the battery from the vehicle and hit them with reverse charge a then switch it back and while charging we would tap it a few times with a board or mallet.

I put a new drive belt on the JD F725. It's back among the usable.
