Soon as I can operate it without leaking. One of my "Brand new" lift cylinders is Pi$$ing through the shaft seal. Should be under warranty, but it's a pain in the arse. Going to make tomorrow a long day.

 

But just to keep you quiet.

I hate doing battle over the phone, but it happens all to often that these companies feel they are insulated by the miles.
Sometimes it takes a lot of your time to irritate a company into doing what is right.

Yay, not a leaky cylinder after all, despite evidence to the contrary.  Swivel fitting wasn't tight.

I have a lot of time on my hands.

 

Haven't worked in 2-1/2 months.

 

 

Next step is finishing up the rear end body work, and finalizing the track lube system.

 

Also been working on the ramps to get her off the table,

Was doing great till I broke the saw blade.

 

Burnt out my Vertical saw motor, and now broke the blade on the horizontal. All in 3 days. Need to go blow more money.

All this... and I'm here, wasting 3 or 4 beers and burning/smoking cigarettes on a whole Sunday after-noon trying to figure out that there has to be a way to have a double output PTO on my gx340 Honda engine I just bought....

You had me there at that photo where I was trying to go beyond that plastic fan... http://gardentractor...-1383355592.jpg

I kept the plastic fan, I think I had to cut down the recoil hub to fit betyween the driveshaft adapter and the fan. It is needed to keep the fan centered. I thought I had more pictures of that, but I haven't been able to find them.

 

The first minute or so of this vid shows it in a bit more detail.

There wasn't much, I only had a few pictures of that piece. The drivesahft adapter is about from 30 seconds to 1 minute in.

Great video.  I was wondering what the tractor in front of the dozer build is, looks to be in great shape?  And do you have any idea what is going to weigh when you are done. Bare tractor is about 800 lb or more. You have added a lot of metal to it since the start. Very nice, will continue to watch.  Noel

Its my 76 LGT100, with the rear PTO, and LGT165 Skins. It runs pretty good, but the original sheetmetal and rubber was really trashed. I picked up a 145 with the 165 side panels, and swapped out everything I could use off of it, and traded the rest to a local member for the chassis in the video. It has the tiller, but I traded the deck for other parts since I had no use for it.
