I envy you having time to work on it.  All I have time or energy left to do is just look at stuff, hoping to get to it.  At least I can follow your work for inspiration!  :thumbs:

I have a good reason for getting this done and believe me it's not ambition.

I moved my backhoe from the Dexta to the Ford 850 and I really need to get that done before snow. 

 

 

 

I envy you having time to work on it.

You get an awful lot done in a day and I can guarantee you that not may of us could keep up with you.

You've likely noticed lately, once I get my farm work done for the day, I'm not posting about progress with the GT hobby.  I still get a lot of farm work done, but that's it, I'm done for the day.  

  As to your project, that's a huge difference in engine sizes there!  Gonna make a huge difference blowing snow!

Got a few more things done today and had the engine running for awhile. Starts almost instantly and seems to run good. Needs a shot of injector cleaner for sure. It rained all day so I didn't take it out and my back is giving me a lot of grief. Decided to cut it short and see about getting an up date on here.

 

The engine and drive train is basically done except for things like wiring the alternator and permanently mounting the fuel filter, air filter, and exhaust. One thing I have to look forward to is the hood and I'm dreading it. I've just got too many apples in this bag and it's going to be tough to make it look nice. Maybe I'll drape half a 55 gal. drum over it and enter it in the next "ugly tractor" contest. I just can't see how it will look like anything but an orange pig.  :(

 

First two photos are of the engine and radiator installation. Next is the PTO drive assembly with the belts. For once I had a set of belts on hand for a project and didn't have to make a half dozen trips to town to find something that would fit.  :D  The last photo is the tie rod coupling that was used to combine two rods to make a longer one.

Finally got back to work on this again and things just kind of fell into place. Got a hood and grille mounted and painted. Thinking of partial side covers but that will come as things work out. Next project for the first of next week will be to remove the cab from the Simplicity 7117 and install it on here. Then some good lights.

Definitely a one of a kind Kubota G4200.

Chris, the hood looks awesome!  Any pics of how you extended it?  The whole machine is looking like a factory build....but better!

Daniel I think I'm going to let this ride for a little bit and see if anyone can recognize what I did. It was very easy and I already had everything to do it with.  :D

But we didn't know you had a Ford/Jacobsen 195/53500 laying around. That's not fair.....

That's definitely a Ford/Jacobsen hood & grille. What are the center head lights from?

Neat trick & it looks good on there!

You guys are a lot better than I would have been. Without the side covers I would not have figured it out. Daniel got it right away but was kind enough not to say anything. If you look in the background you will see the inside of one of the blue side covers. I just happened to walk buy the hood and grille and the light came on. Checked it with the tape measure and sure enough it would fit. Kenny I actually used your avatar photo to explain to my wife what I had done on the Kubota. :D

Now to get the cab on it.
