You didn't leave room for a GPS unit? With a gallon fuel tank and good diesel fuel economy I'm guessing you will be able to wander a great distance from home base and you may come to regret not installing GPS to find the way home. Other than that one omission it sure looks like you are progressing very nicely!
The dash panel is chock full

As to GPS, I already have a TomTom, with the suction grip holder, so once I get a good smooth paint job on it, my GPS will stick just fine.....no getting lost.

If you do get lost and end up in my neck of the woods you can hang here for a couple of days. I'd like to get a close up view of that bad boy when you get it going!

Might get to use my bolts tomorrow after all. The clutch disc & pilot for my loader are the wrong parts. Looks like the pressure plate is correct. I'll have to call them tomorrow & see if they can get the right disc in by Wednesday morning. And I thought I found a good parts man. I even left my old parts with him, but it's clear he never looked at them. Oh well, I get to play with the diesel project tomorrow!
Doggone the bad luck anyway Dan! Sorry to hear that you got the wrong parts. I guess you'll just have to suck it up and play with the diesel re-power instead LOL!

Brian, member "texasdeere&horse" is fixing me up with a complete disc brake setup off a JD140, from pedal to disc! This JD used the same hydro & diff as my JB, so all I will be able to install individual turning brakes on this tractor also. Will take some head scratching to get all the geometry to work with my chassis, but as Brian said, now is the time to get it done. Now I have to make up my mind whether to put the hydro on right, brake pedals on left, or vice-versa. Once I get a look at the JD parts, I can figure which way is best. Nothing like more challenges! But this will be a super cool addition to the "Boss Hog" for sure, and be a very functional addition. This tractor will become my main garden tractor for plowing & hauling. The turning brakes will be great when needing a tight turn.
But guys....don't let my BIL, meangreen know I'm putting John Deere parts on her!
Brian, thanks SO much for all your help....very much appreciated!
