I worked my ass off today to get the Caterpillar wired up for the big event. It is partially cobbled, not all of the way painted, but usable. Then I loaded them all up twice (tetris error the first time because the 444 wouldn't start so I loaded the others first).
Also: I would like to thank Alan for the use of his phone booth to pull this all off today, and Steve, it is your turn lol.

Put the hood and side panels back on the Ford after re torquing the head. Got GTV/16 up where I could get the starter and fuel pump put on. Started it and let it run a while.

I fixed the rat nest that was the hacked up wiring on my 140. It started out as putting the tail lights on. Ended up as 50% rewiring the tractor. If people cant do something right, why do they bother doing it? Just leave it alone.

Finished the brackets to mount the blade without having to remove the deck. Tacked them on to make sure the fit is ok and will finish the welding soon.

Im about to go out and rebuild the carb on the JD285. Then I will reinstall the headlights, and get it all together. May tear the deck apart for the rebuild.

I forgot about that, I could start a new tread with all the help he has given me--- What did Daniel do to my tractor today :smilewink:
He made it look easy, no telling what kind of mess I'll make when I give it my first try :(

Well I was right. I redid the carb on the 285. Then tore the deck down and ordered the bearings for it. Cheap too, if you need JD bearings let me know. $5 each. After the 285 was as done as it can be I went to the 140. I was told that the tires had to be skinny due to the smaller deck. Obviously somone either didnt want the tires I got, or didnt know they were dead wrong. The 10.5 tires went on with plenty of room to spare. Im glad I didnt buy new 8.5s based on the wrong info I was given. After the tire change, I decided to correctly install the head lights on the 140. Maybe in a another month I will have undone all the stuff on the 140 that isny right.

I installed the new air filter and tested the voltage regulator/rectifier on the Sears SS12. The voltage regulator is putting out voltage but backwards from the way it is suppose to be. I guess I will be replacing that soon. I also installed the sickle bar mower and cut a couple of bushes.0502112054.jpg I don't know of any 'garden tractor' manufacturer that manufactures or sells this implement option.
