Depending on your glasses needs, I found that an inexpensive pair of reading glasses worked better for me than my regular bifocals.

My work ethics have sucked lately.  Just not felt up to much of a challenge.  What I'm doing now is just medicinal for my mental state....and it does help!

  Gonna call it a night....later guys!

Here's the pic of the top radiator bracket I built yesterday.  I bolted it all up this evening.  The welds look horrible, but they will hold.  Plenty strong & rigid.

I will be adding a remote engine oil filter for the engine, and while waiting for Dad's hospital release time, I decided to start machining the remote adapter for the engine.  Sawed off a chunk of 3" aluminum round bar, then went to chuck it in the lathe.  Then my flat belt's connector staples ripped out of the belt, so dead in the water.  I'm gonna go get a correct length serpentine belt & remove the head stock to install it.  It should last many years once done.  I am using a cut serpentine belt now with the clincher staples & pin.

You can use a piece of belt off of a round baler and the clippers also, that's what we use on our older lathes

Radiator is 1 1/4", but engine 1", so I will be adding reducers between.

I could, but my parts store had a belt within 1/4" of the length of my clipped belt.  I'm just gonna do it the hard way putting on the one piece belt.  It'll last me forever this way.  Plus no clicking as the clips pass over the pulleys.

Dang, gotta redo or build another top radiator bracket.  I didn't notice when I installed it that one lower radiator mount got lifted from snug when I bolted all in place.  I likely can just use a cutoff wheel & cut the part going to the radiator off the cross piece, then re-weld in the correct spot.  I was trying to just mark things to avoid welding with radiator in place.  I'll lay a fiberglass mat over the radiator to prevent damaging the radiator from weld splatter.  Just has to be tacked, then I can remove the radiator or the bracket to finish the weld.

That's too bad Dan. Nothing looks out of wack in the pictures.

I guess you get to practise welding. :smilewink:

I just happened to glance at it before feeding silage tonight.  I looked down at the bottom & noticed the one side of the bottom of the radiator raised a bit.  No time to work on it for now.  I'm wore slap out, so heading to bed in a few.  Not concerned much about tractors right now.  :(
