Before pics of the block, and after pics of the block, shroud, head cover, and bearing plate.  Had them dipped rather than bead blasted.

 

Haven't had a whole lot of time lately, got a whole bunch of parts sitting in boxes, just need a few weekends with nothing on the plate and I'll git er dun.

Here's a little flip disc I welded up over Christmas.  Bought the disc hangars off Craigslist, got the wheels and hitch from Harbor Freight

I like that flip disc.  You sure beat the price of a new one, no doubt.  That is a handy tool.

Very nice. Thanks for the pictures. That's a very nice build on the disc. Did you have much trouble getting the JD blade adapted to the ford?

Very nice. Thanks for the pictures. That's a very nice build on the disc. Did you have much trouble getting the JD blade adapted to the ford?


Still working on adapting the blade over, I've found 2 points on the front of the tractor I can use and 2 parts on either side of the frame mid tractor I'm going to use to spread out the stress. I fab-ed up some 1" pipe for that to make bars to get back to those points. I'll take more pics when I get that done

Sounds good. The JD's are built strong in the front end to take the stress. After seeing your rebuild pictures it makes me want one of those Fords for my next project.
