Yes, got a rod tapped & ready.  I messed one up though on the 1st try.  I should have sent them to you!

DOH!! Hate when that happens! Luckly for me I have plenty of practice lol , I cut threads at least 2-3 times a week on the lathe. So much so I rarely need to measure. And most are class 2 and 3 threads 32 tpi for machine nuts and then the usual standard stuff. I'm the only one that does it out of 7 machinists. The others are duds and can't do it....

Been round the world it seems looking for Hogzilla stuff.  2 of the 3 upholstery shops I found on the net are no longer, and the 3rd only does furniture.  But this lady recommended a place not on the net.  Dropped off the bases & he'll have it done next week!  Having it done in red sides with red beading and diamond quilted white tops.  He first said $135, but we talked a bit about tractors and I showed him pics of Hogzilla.  When I went to leave he said just bring him a crisp $100 bill and we'd be good.  The last one I had covered 2 or 3 years ago cost me $90 without quilting.  Both had to supply foam.

  Then I went to Parker Hydraulics.  They gave me the needed o-rings no charge.  He said the 3pt lift cylinder's gland likely came stock with just an o-ring.  He found one that filled the space snug where my old one had side to side play.

Today I should get the OE hydraulic lift cylinder rebuilt & back on, plus get the 3pt arms all painted.  That will just leave screwing on the seats parts once they get upholstered.  I'm sure once this is finished I'll find a new project to start on.  Hopefully the next project won't take 5 years!

Except for bolting in the newly upholstered (next week) seat & backrest, she's done!  Of course I might see/find something needing attention, but that's always the case.

Thanks, I thought long and hard on the paint scheme.  The scheme out better than I had pictured in my mind.  Maybe this summer I'll start a new project......"Perkins diesel triple into an Allis 620".
