The avatar is neat & so is the diesel JBI. Dan if U or anyone else has machining problems, just ask. I have
been doing it since 10-67 & have done just about everything except cutting gears.

Started this morning engineering the pedal hydro control. The OE pedal was inside the dash tower, which even kinda neat, was horribly cramped. I used an original JB pedal, but mounted it out on the running boards where there's plenty of room. The dash as I said earlier will eventually house the battery & fuel tank.
I had to ditch the original linkages & make new. Only part I used was the link rod, which I had to cut shorter, then thread the end for the ball socket. To get the geometry to work without my foot in a severe angle at full speed position, I had to weld a piece of strap steel onto the hydro control arm. You can see if going down to the control rod. There will be no hand hydro control as it had originally.

I took a couple short video clips while driving it, just to show how the engine doesn't hardly know there's any load on a full speed takeoff. Kinda shaky, but tells the tale.

Not hardly any time at all lately to do any work to it, but finally a day off for some progress!Posted Image

Dan, It won't. Photobucket doesn't play well with the forum. If you use Youtube or a couple of others, it'll work ok.

As for the project: :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs: (that's 4 big thumbs up.)
Looking great, loving how you're working thru the glitches.

Oh, that's right Alan, I keep getting it mixed up, which one works with GTT. Maybe one day it'll sink into my thick skull! LOL

To get some black smoke, I think I'll have to put the 2-bottom plow on it! That engine is gonna take some pull to make it work enough to blow smoke. Sure does have the power! That is a Kubota muffler, so guess a dealer item.

Had just a few minutes to diddle on the JB today. No more driving for a while, as I took the manual steering column out in preparation of installing power steering.

What are you going to put back in it? What does your power steering system consist of?

As I get into it, I will post complete with pics of the power steering add-on.

Had just an hour or less to mess with building a new steering column to work with my orbital valve. I'll get some pics up over the weekend. Other than 3 or 4 hydraulic fittings, I think I have all the rest it will take.

Sound good I am curious I would like to put it on mine one day definitely before I put a front end loader on it.

On a Case, I think you'll have to add a priority valve to split enough hydraulic for your steering. Not a biggie to do, and otherwise just like I'm doing.
