Nice!
Are you going to add chains to the tires or just leave it with the studs on?

I am going to try it with the studs and see how it does. I have a set of chains that I already made to fit another set of tires that are of the same size.

Been getting Bush Hog D4-10 sheet metal & other parts ready to paint in the next couple or 3 days, if time permits. Need to get it done by Monday night, as rain is coming for the next 2 or 3 days after. I have the hood, fenders, all the lift mechanisms & brackets, grill frame, and many other parts ready. Tomorrow I need to get the seat frame, fuel tank/straps, & a couple small parts under primer. I might even try to get some of the parts shot with paint tomorrow too, as there are so many to paint, I won't have places to put them all at one time.

Actually, yesterday! Put the newly-painted 37A snowblower on the 74-112. Hope I don't have to use it!

Then mower the last of the leaves with the F525 & serviced it. Then put it away for the Winter! ~~ grnspot110

Then got the hoods off & began making a to do list. Managed to do a few small things.

Almost forgot, I started the morning getting the Custom 7E to pop, then when I got back home, it ran. I wanted to dance around it, but was to busy gagging on the smoke. The smoke cleared after a minute or 2. I think the rings needed to relax.
Then I started to put on the dozer blade. Ran into trouble when I realized we were a part short. Time to fab. Still way ahead of the game :D

Well the 782 decided it was time for some attention, even though we were planning on doing some body work and paint to it this winter anyway. :/

The KT17 decided that it was time to reject its governor gear and deposit it in the bottom of the crankcase.

Looks like one of the fly weights over extended itself and hit something along the way.

We did find the source of the low compression, both intake valves were way too tight and need to be clearanced. So a good re-lapping and a little grinding on the stems and that part should be good to go.

It seemed strange that there wasn't any ring groove at all in either cylinder, just a little very minor scoring on the tops and bottoms of the cylinders. A close inspection revealed that it had .010 over pistons in it. So at some point (it would seem that it was just before we had purchased it) the engine had been rebuilt. Everything else looks good in it, so I think we are going to try a new governor gear and a gasket kit and see what happens.

I do need to take a picture of the front seal, no wonder we always had an oil leak behind the electric clutch. The seal was probably in a 1/16 of an inch farther at the bottom than the top. :rolleyes:

Busy farm day, but spent a half hour in the shop priming my D4-10's fuel tank/straps, and the seat base. Then welded worn spot in pto throwout arm. That's all for me today....tired!

Mounted the last of the surviving parts on the Custom 7E / Snowplow. I think the rest will be fab stuff.
