And Kenny, I've not mentioned that I also have to get into the hydrostat to machine an angled relief into the pump drive plate ( required for reversing rotation), grind down a reverse limiting bump down, and likely swap the rock shaft pins so the direction control arm will be on the left side of the tractor, where I will be relocating the hydro control pedal.

  Yeah, "might" get it all done!   :hitting_self_roller:   This will most likely be my last major project involving so much modification.  After this is completed, I'll likely stick with easier resto work or simple mods.

Sure you will. I for one, am not buying that. It's in your blood mister.

But if you're serious, will you be selling your plasma cutter? :smilewink:

 

This does look like a major undertaking, but you'll get it done.

Well, for the 1st line of your quote......you may be right!   :D 

 

2nd line........... NO!  :rolling:

 

3rd line.....Yes, unless something takes me out, I will finish.  Just not sure when, but I'm never sure as to "when" on anything.

My guess, would be, sooner than you think. Now that it's all over the shop floor, you'll get tired of

walking around it. :thumbs:

Those are wise words for sure!  Especially being such a small shop.  Before I do anything more, a lot of stuff has to find another home for a while so I can just walk easily if nothing else.  

  Another thing I've not mentioned is needing to build rim adapters.  I need them at least 1" thick, and bolt to the 5 bolt hubs, then machined to allow bolting up my 6 lug rims.  Never build adapters before, but willing to try.

I was wondering why every time I hit view new content tonight my :bs:  meter was getting pegged. Finally found the culprit.

Now be easy on me guys, as this project is gonna kick my butt!  Likely it will be quite some time after this before I'd attempt much of anything else.   Like Kenny said, I have to keep it fun, or the drive will leave me.  I do like a challenge, but I'm biting off a lot this time.  It's not like I'm doing anything so difficult, but the time constraints make it even more of a challenge.  But being I'm at home when I'm at work, I can steal a half hour project time at various times during a typical week, that helps a bunch.

Daniel Is there any reason not to change the centers of your rims to 5 lug?

That's a good idea Brian. Sure would save alot of drilling and tapping.

We'll go easy on you. I am amazed you have found the time to even start back on this. What an interesting build this is! Good luck Daniel :thumbs:

Guess just changing the hubs would be a bit of a challenge. Adapters should work!

Zing your rings for the adapters and send them to me and I'll poke the holes in them in a heart beat! And quit your whining and get to it! You've done WAY MORE than I would have though already !!"! ;)

The center hole in the rims is too large to allow for re-drilling the rims.  I also need to also kick out the wheels at least 1", so I need a spacer plate too, and I'd not want to use long bolts with the spacer as it might cause twist.  An adapter which is bolted to the hub, then tapped for the rim lug bolts would be much stronger.

Zing your rings for the adapters and send them to me and I'll poke the holes in them in a heart beat! And quit your whining and get to it! You've done WAY MORE than I would have though already !!"! ;)

 

It'll be some time before I get to that point, but I'll keep that in mind!  I'd likely hate for you to see what I would cut out.  Likely be rough as a cob.  I can turn the outer edges in my lathe, but no chuck large enough to true the center hole.

On the Trojan Horse I drilled out the welds for the centers and welded them back for the correct offset. Was kind of dreading it but went good and took less time than expected. Welding the holes left from drilling the welds was the biggest hassle and that wasn't a big deal.
