This Original has been sitting in the back of the shop on blocks for five years. I decided I want to do something with it. I'm leaning towards a custom build of some sorts, so I used my cherry picker to move it up to the table on rollers you can see in the background. At least now its at working height and mobile. I spent a lot of time trying to decide what I wanted to do with it. Is that considered progress?
Well, I see a motorcycle wheel there so the choice seems obvious. Mount that wheel out front and make it a chopper 3 wheeler.

I am thinking along the lines of a three wheeled tractor tho - maybe something in silver ~~~

Even loud verbal insults didn't convince her. So today, the hub IS coming off, intact,
in pieces, or in flames.
She's got to learn who's the boss.:blush2:

Installed 2 new hydraulic couplers on the front and fixed one of the steel lines.
Took the front axle out and re-bushed it and installed a grease zerk on the center pivot.
I installed the 3 pt rock shaft and lower brackets that I got a couple weeks ago. I hope to start building the lower lift arms and lift rods this weekend.

Someone was asking me about if the holes were wore out in the hood, so I took a pic of that too.

Got a coat Black paint on the old cleaned up steel seat that I'm going to mount on the trailer for my Walk behind. :bounce:Used my electrolysis tank to get the old paint and most of the rust off. Gave a brief going over with the wire wheel in the angle grinder. The off to the green house/paint booth for some paint. In the 40's outside and in the 80' s inside the small greenhouse. Works very well
This thing rocks! Put some photo's in your gallery. I managed to find some in past threads but not much.

It was 54 today, so I would not get a better chance, and I've lived in IOwa 62 yrs and know we can't dodge it forever.
