Last night I put the first coat on paint on my DB hood and by sometime this weekend I'd like to get it mounted to check the clearance on the motor.

 

My question concerns how to mount the bracket that holds the fuel tank and the hood.

 

When I got my tractor the bracket was attached to the hood but not attached to the tractor. Because of that I really don't know how it's supposed to mount.

 

From what I've been able to see on the internet it looks like you have to pull a couple of the bolts that hold the transmission together and mount the bracket right on the tranny but I don't want to pull those bolts out if that's not the case.

 

If someone can give me some insight or possibly some photos of how it mounts up it would be very helpful. Like I said I'm not planning on doing anything before the weekend so there's no hurry at all.

 

Thanks

Yes, you have to remove those bolts.  The pictures aren't the best, but that isn't what I was trying to show when I took them.

After looking at your photos a little more closely, does the clutch pulley have to come off to get the bolt out on that side?

I don't have the tractor here so that I can go out and look at it or I would.

 

Thanks

That one I will have to leave for someone else.  I remember having the clutch off to fix it, but I don't remember having to take it off for any other reason.  But, I have slept since then.

No problem my friend. I can always take a look at it when I go out to the farm this weekend.

I honestly appreciate all of the help you've given me since I signed up.

No, you can remove the bracket for the fuel tank without moving the transmission pulley. There are two bolts on the left side but only one on the right side.

Thanks everyone.

Got the hood mounted a couple of weeks ago and did not have to remove the clutch.

 

Here in another week or two I should be able to get back to doing some work on her.

 

I want to use the DB to hill some rows in the garden, (if it ever dries up around here), and then I'm going to start stripping it down and getting it ready for paint.

 

It's just basically going to be a freshening job instead of a restoration since I'm am going to work this thing pretty hard over the next few years. I just want to make her look a little prettier while she's working. 

 

Thanks again!

I like the re-purposed tomato can.  My wife thinks you should have left the label on it and asked Heinz for a stipend!
