well I finally have gotten some time in the garage to work on the FEL project, and here's where I am now.

this is mock up stage

IMG_0455.JPG

IMG_0473.JPG

and here are the parts being  marked, then cut out

IMG_0472.jpg

IMG_0533.JPG

after a few holes and a bracket welded on it's ready for install

IMG_0548.jpg

the cross bar in mock up underneath the supports. this will be cut to length and welded to them and the loader posts will sit on this.

IMG_0534.JPG

 and the support bolted in

IMG_0551.JPG  

once i get the second one bolted I can mount the cross bar , cut, drill , weld , remove then paint for final installation. then it's time to take it off the jack stands and get the snowblower  mounted and adjusted for winter. so I won't be caught off guard while I'm doing the rest of the project.

Tom

IMG_0574.JPG

the new width gives the hoses clearance at hood, just have to figure out the front support location/mount

IMG_0575.jpg

and finally , my hand sitting on my knee will be able to run controls as well as the clearance for my foot pedals

Thanks Tom

Well after a brief cold and some wicked cold temps I managed some garage time on the loader project, and here's the progress
Me welding the spacer for the crossmember

The frame attached with new diagonal supports

So now relocate the mounts on the bucket and finish the hydraulics

So that's where I'm at looking good for a spring finish!

Thanks for looking , Tom

well here is the latest pics, all that's left is rebuilding the front hydraulic lines and mounting the pump 

IMG_0755.JPG

the mounts relocated and the top angle iron was added to mount a hook in future

IMG_0753.jpg

a quick coat of paint (rustoleum satin) after a wire cup cleaning (didn't do inside figuring it would wear off pretty quick)

thanks for looking, Tom

finally got back to loader project sat nite, apparently you have to take body sheet metal off to get driveshaft out! :wallbanging:

so now that body panel is off i might as well paint it 

here are some pics

IMG_0944.jpg

IMG_0945.JPG

IMG_0946.jpg  

I have to cut out battery tray to access area for the pump pulley/ diveshaft area. some bright designer put the steering column through it . and I'm not looking to take that out too. just fab a plate to reattach.
