Got back on the 66 tonight, been a while since I've done anything with this, pulled the trany out again to fix the oil leak, split the case, used some RTV, put it back together and left it sitting on 1 end. Fixed the gas leak in the carb, drain valve in the fuel bowel, put a rivet in it with a bit of epoxy. Organized my parts for it so I know where I stand looks like I got everything but a good steering wheel, I knew the moment I broke it trying to take it off it was going to be a problem. Anyway got to push myself to finish this thing.

Put the trany back in tonight, filled it with oil and no leaks. Put the fuel bowl back on the carb., hooked up the gas line and no leaks there either. Fired it up checked the Vari-Drive adjustment and seems to be OK, working on the brakes now, have the early style and the later style units trying to see which one works better, I'll have to finish that up tomorrow, that's as far as I got tonight on it.

Well I got the brake all sorted out, found a another difference between the 66 and later models, brake unit on the 66 is bolted to the trany where later models it's bolted to an extra bracket that is welded to the frame, both brake units are different but work the same way. Found a new brake band in my parts bin, mounted on a the newer style unit, I removed the band and mounted it to the 66 style unit and now I got brakes.

That's my number one rule in the shop at school - know how you're going to stop it before you start it! Maybe #2, you know - Safety First! It's good to hear it's coming along nicely.

Working on it again today, got the foot boards on, all the gray sheet metal on, mounted the grill, front axle drilled out 3 spots for grease fittings, mounted it, put the wheels on, it's been a long time since it sat on it's tires. Working on the wiring and dash and the red sheet metal, hood, toolbox and seat. Was hoping to paint red today but it's not good weather for that. That's as far as I got so far.

Drove it tonight for the first time, seems to be good, starts easy, runs smooth and steady, all the gears, clutch, Vari Drive parts work, still a couple of small things to sort out but at least now it's usable.
Pictures tomorrow.

Pictures
As you can see still needs decals, lights to be installed, missing 1 front wheel cap I know I painted 2 of them. Front tires are wheel barrow tires, need to find something more suitable, narrow rear turf tires need to be painted, PTO pedal to go on and it's done.
Still don't have a good original steering wheel so I used what I had.
Every thing works even the voltage regulator that came with the tractor.
