I painted the engine this week and im very happy with the outcome. I will be installing the engine tomorrow and the decals will go in Friday. Im hoping to have this tractor done by the weekend. Sadly I'll have to wait till spring to drive it because it's in the basement.
Here are a few pictures of the engine going back together after paint.

Yes, I have an awesome wife.


We got tires on my wifes van in November, one keeps going down (Alum rims) and I kept getting suckered into inflating the darned thing. I have been asking for 40 days for her to make an appointment to get it fixed.

The other night, it was 20 (felt like 10) and I decided I wasn't doing this anymore. I advised her of my decision & darned if we didn't drop the van off tonight for them to fix it.

Good for you she helps willingly... mine (sometimes) requires the right motivation. :D

Looking great! My wife will help whenever I ask. Yes, it's awesome having a wife that will help without question. I'm not saying she's into GT's, as she isn't, but she always helps me when I need it, because I do the same for her. Most house improvement projects are my brainchild, and she helps a TON on those too. I've needed her help on several occasions while working on a garden tractor or implement....she's always there!
