Heading into the home stretch!  It poured rain here all day, so I got some much needed shop time.  I was able to get the tires back on the rims, with tubes installed (1 hr).  Then I cleaned & painted the lug bolts (.25 hrs not counting the painting).  Once I got the wheels back on (1 hr), I managed to get the engine re-mounted (.5 hrs).  If I had a drive belt I might be able to test it out.  One thing is for sure: it is monster tall with the plow attached the way it is.  More research required on setting up the plow.

Totals: $530 & 34.25 hrs (not counting the 8 hours of lost sleep).

I have always said, "You have got to have a spare", and this is another example of why.  I mentioned in my last post that there must be something wrong with the plow set up because the tractor seemed way to tall, but I wasn't sure what exactly.  I had a look at one of my spare plows & noticed that the lower cross member assembly (black and red arrow) was installed upside down.  The cross member was above the plow beam, not below.  Now that it has been turned around, the handlebars are considerably lower. (1.5 hrs)

I also picked up a belt today (.5 hrs & $10), but that only highlights the need to sort out the throttle.  Currently, it is adjustable, but by way of a lever on the engine, which is to far from the operator when he needs it most.  The tractor should have a throttle lever up on the left handlebar.
