That's a nice looking tractor Dan.Sure can see the effort that your putting into it.I'll have to say one the the newer box store stuff will never compare to the old one's.Can you imagine what they'd want for something new nowadays if it was built like the old stuff.I doubt if any of us could afford to buy it in todays prices.Very nice restore.Larry

Daniel -You've done an incredible job on your D4-10 restoration! I know you've got enough to do already but how about adding one more item? How about adding a muffler shield just like the one in the sales brochures you uploaded? Small details like that can really make a restoration project even more special (how many BH LGT restoration projects have you seen with the muffler shield?). looks pretty simple to fabricate. Just thought I'd make a suggestion.

Kenneth, I have 2 original muffler shields. Just haven't gotten around to that yet. Matter of fact, I need to get that blasted too. That shield may be the very last part needing blasting.
When Bush Hog Corporation was restoring their D4-10, they didn't have a shield on their muffler. When I told them it was missing & sent them a pic, they went out & found an original shield for theirs. They had pics & all, but had just overlooked it.

Now that's funny. Good for you.

That's great you have an original shield you can use on this project. I guess I don't remember seeing one [shield] on the tractor when you brought it home and had it on the trailer in your first post. As I mentioned before you've done an incredible job on your D4-10, work to be very proud of indeed. I look forward to the day when you get it all put together and show it off to us all. Keep crankin' away bud!

This D4-10 I'm restoring didn't have a shield, but my other D4-10 runner, plus my parts D4-10 both have them. I'll be using the shield off the tractor in the 2nd pic, as it became a donor tractor.

That's great! You don't have to fabricate one and I can't tell but I guess the units in the pictures are OEM I would assume. I didn't know if you had the shield under control and thought I'd bring it to your attention. Sounds as though you're ahead of me! :thumbs:

The one I'm going to use doesn't look right in the pic because the strap that clamps to the muffler broke the spotweld to the shield, so they just slipped the strap over the edge of the shield, but I'll spot it back in place.

Any progress on this one or is it on the back burner for now? If so, I understand.

Back burner for now. Waiting for an "Indian Summer" winter day or days to finish painting the parts that are ready to be shot. Just wanna save propane required to cure the paint in the shop.
