Got a little more done today.  Hoping tomorrow, being it's my day off farm duty, that I might get far enough along for a little test drive!

Not been outside yet, as it got down to 16F last night & still cold.  I have to patch the shop heater vent pipe before I can fire the waste oil heater, so it'll be a while.  Plenty of day yet, so I'm in no hurry.  I'll definitely put in some"HD time" in the shop today though.

Been making progress, but didn't take the camera down yet, but will after lunch.  Got the steering gear all back in, cut 2 holes in the dash for oil pressure and water temp gauges, and have the dash tower & steering wheel back on.  Still shooting for a test drive later today.

MET MY GOAL!   :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: 

 

Got everything more or less rigged up, but I did get to test drive her!  She has plenty of power too.  Pulling a load will verify that.  Just rigged a 1 gallon tank, and battery just sitting on the footrest.  No radiator fan yet, but I figure with temps in the 30's.....yeah, it'll be ok.  I was going to install a manual type temp gauge, but the hole in the water pump isn't deep enough, so I'll have to build my own adapter later.  

 Sure was nice to get her under it's own power!  No muffler yet, and couldn't leave the hood on due to the exhaust pipe & rigged up air filter currently on it.  I bought a used air filter assembly off ebay to go onto it.

You made her come out without shoes to do that? Shame! :poke:

Hey, I saw her out in sock feet before it got to 22 degrees!  Of course that was to retrieve something from the Jeep she wanted, so that wasn't an issue.  But she didn't grumble....to where I heard it anyway!  :smilewink:
