BTW....do you guys like my new avatar?


I love it! I know why you're not getting further on the project tho... too many hours flossing Bessie.


Actually, I'm kind of glad nobody was taking video, as it wasn't so pretty, and would have been embarrassing.
A video of the whole event would have been priceless to you guys.:D


I'd have done a Pay Per View for that one Daniel!
Glad you didn't fall on your thingamabob when you were testing the tranny!
If you'd fallen off, that tractor may have made it all the way to Meangreen's place. :laughingteeth:

She doesn't have a dentist yet Maynard! :D

Been tinkering in the shop some today. This has been the easiest farming day I've had in weeks!:dancingbanana:
Anyway, just about have the throttle finished. I used a 4 1/2" .045" thick slicing wheel to taper the handle. The taper looks so much better IMO. Then I tapped the top to 3/8" coarse thread to be able to use a MF1650 Hi/Lo shift handle. You can see the throttle arm stop I bolted to the dash side, so not to pull too hard against the injector pump throttle lever. I also added an adjustment to the throttle rod near the injector pump.
I wil be making a polished aluminum round cover to slip over the pivot bolt on the handle to dress it up later on. It will be the same size as the large washer the bolt is welded to. I will lathe a recess in the back of this cover cap to allow for the bolt head, then drill a hole from the edge of the aluminum cap all the way to the recess, then tap to use an allen set screw to secure cap to a dimple drilled into the side of the bolt head.

Here's the almost finished inside part. Just needs dressing up. The arm appears to hit the dash up there on top, but clears by over 1/8". I left it longer in case I needed a different ratio, but where it is is perfect, and any further out with the rod would make way too narrow an arc of the throttle handle.

It looks great Daniel, now if I can only find the time to get those brakes off.

Oh heck Brian...don't sweat over the brakes. I have PLENTY other things to keep me occupied until it is convenient for you to deal with.

Today I borrowed this neutral assembly off my original condition JBI. I took it for a short drive this afternoon in the falling snow, and it sure makes for a safer drive!

As soon as the weather clears, I'll get my wife to take a video clip of me driving it.
You know, I already :love: this tractor!

Been debating on the handle, betwixt copy chrome or just painting. Being I will end up with a polished aluminum cap over the bolt area, painting the handle may look good too. I have so much to do that I shouldn't even be thinking of the dressy stuff, but I always try to think ahead. :D
Been a long 12hr day, so not one look at the JB.

Congrats Daniel on getting her up and running! That is one quick build up. I know there is a lot to do yet but to get done what you did in such a short time frame along with all the farm chores to do is quite amazing! That maiden voyage video would have been quite a sight to see, glad you hung on to the bucking bronco. Good job!
