The turning brakes will be a great thing to have! Will be looking forward to seeing how that is set up.

Don't worry, Daniel we wont tell about using the "green parts" :smilewink:

After finally getting the parlor pumps going, I came back to the house & took a good long/needed nap. Headache almost gone now. Went to the shop just long enough to shorten the driveshaft & cut a new woodruff keyway. The driveshaft is now officially ready. Tomorrow, if all will just go smooth for me, I may get to install the driveshaft & prepare for a maiden voyage. Heck, I haven't any idea whether this hydro even works or not. If it doesn't, then it'll be time to install a NOS hydro & diff. that I have waiting in the wings.

Glad you got a few minutes of shop time. Sometimes a nap & tractor therapy is what the doctor ordered!

I drove the JB with DIESEL!!!!!!!!!!

Now it's nowhere near to be considered safe to drive, but I HAD TO!
Got the driveshaft installed earlier today & had a few minutes before milking the cows, so seen daylight for driving. No throttle yet, so just locked the throttle to full throttle, then put on a wire to the kill lever for emergency stopping. The speed control is just the little rod coming through the right fender, with no handle, and the neutral detent is missing, so had to grip that rod tight, as it wanted to go full speed in forward or reverse if I didn't really hold that thing super tight. Before I started it, I rolled it out to open ground, being I had no neutral detent to know exactly where I had the speed set when cranking her up.
That engine doesn't know at all when I drop the
hydro like a hammer from neutral to full speed . Even the TJD twin Wisconsin in the other JB knows when I hammer it, although not that much, but I do hear the governor react much more than this diesel does. It just goes!
The bad thing is that nobody was here to video my maiden voyage...sorry guys, video will have to wait. Tons & tons of work to do yet, but it felt so good to let her rip for just a few minutes!
I could have done a lot more to it today, but couldn't get to sleep last night & ended up with about 2hrs sleep, so just kinda kicked back after morning milking.
I sure was happy to feel that diesel pulling!!!!:rocker2::thumbs::dancingbanana::yelclap::smilewink::orangecool::smile1::bounce::rolling::D
