Finally finished my repower and complete rewire on my 3414s. I held my breath, turned the key and she cranked up immediately, everything worked and there were no burning wires. Engine purred like a kitten with minor carb adjustment.

Not crazy about running the lights off the AC circuit off the alternator ( dim lights are at engine idle)

I checked out the charging system on the FF 20 today. It's working, but I need to get some better connectors on the regulator/rectifier. I'll see once the connections are fixed how the amp gauge works, the needle is real bouncy right now. The hour meter is not hooked up. I want to get into the engine shrouds and see if I can get an oil pressure gauge hooked up. I am in the market for an Electric PTO that fits an 1 7/16 shaft. That may be hard to come by and expensive!

Have worked all week on reassembly of my son's tractor. Started life as a Jacobsen GT 12 hydro. We have installed a twin cylinder 18 hp kohler command engine. Blasted and painted most parts and replaced a few. He has a thing for New Holland tractors so color is a bit off original. This week I got dash on and all new wiring, transmission linkage all back on, and just got fenders bolted up. We are fabricating new grill on Saturday and hope to have hood and grill painted next week.image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

Put the Jacobsen 1000 Chief in my shop yesterday, and today put a good tire/rim assembly on the rear, and took the deck out from under it. I also took a home brew lift assembly off the back of the frame, as it had parts missing.  She's running like brand new!

Got the Plow hitch finished up, primed and painted. Also got the 3pt hitch and weight rack made for the disc. If the garden ever dries I'll see how it works. I got the disc for $30 and it was just set up to drag behind.

Fired up the chief & tucked into a place I cleared in the shed to keep it out of the weather.  That's likely it for the day as far as GT's.

Getting started making my snow plow today.  If I were to create a build thread, which forum would I put it under?  Implements, or the tractor specific forum.  There are a few options I suppose, a nudge in the right direction would be helpful.

Thanks 

Jeff

If you put it in the Implements Forum, just be sure to state in the title which tractor it is for. Also tag it for the brand & tractor. That would help folks find it easier.

Havent really messed with the GTs over the holidays. Instead I have worked on the "other" stuff getting it back to working. Cleand carb on the Horse tiller and got it adjusted, moved on to the chipper and got it going, now trying to get the old ditsch witch cleaned up and going. The tiller and ditch witch were given to me in the middle of summer and I didnt have any time to get the working correctly then.

only had an hour to play yesterday, but I did get a chance to fix the everflat rear and put the chains on the SS16... what a difference. If time allows, I will get the belt for that blower today and cut off the glide extensions someone welded on. they work like ski's and it tries to ride up constantly. stupid things are 5" square.

I'm taking my 314 apart for repaint. Today I am still trying to figure how to get the bolts out of the dash tower. As they say 1 piece at a time and lots of baggies. Maybe the wife won't miss them. Garage space is at a minum, her jeep my tractor.

 

Happy New Year

So I put my snow plow build (to date) on the Implements Forum.  I made some decent headway building my plow frame yesterday and hope to finish the rest today, followed by paint tomorrow.  I know how we all love pictures, so I posted a bunch on my build thread on the implements forum.  Please have a look and I would appreciate any pointers you might have.

 

Thanks

 

Jeff

Took the mower deck off of my Craftsman PGT9000 and stored it for the winter. Moved the PGT9000 into the spot in the shed where the GT6000 usually sits. Can't park it there with the 54" desk attached.

 

Got my GT6000 out and fiddled with the Kohler MV18 and finally fixed a problem it had. Basically, the governor adjustment was out of whack. It would practically run away with itself when I gave it some throttle. Adjusted that per my service manual and it runs like a top! The governor lever had slipped on the "side shaft", so it was coming into play WAY too early. Also put a different battery on the GT6000. The one it had wouldn't turn the engine over. Will try to charge it tomorrow. I also put the 48" dozer blade on. Hopefully that will chase away any chances of snow!
