For everyone who is interested, I ordered things from surplus Center and when I received them Friday, the cylinders I ordered were way off, I literally got 3 inch cylinders when I thought I ordered 1 inchers. Apparently, they had all the cylinders for snow plows labeled incorrectly. I just sent those back today to get the proper ones. I only wish surplus center could ship faster so there wasn't so much waiting. I ordered those things on May 1st and only got them Friday.

They probably had to wait for them to ship. I usually get fast service from them on fittings.

I was surprised too, I usually get boxes from them in about a week. At least I am getting a refund to get cylinders that are correct, which, I was surprised by that more than anything, the cylinders being labeled wrong.

Any progress? I liked the tractor from the pics so far, I'm wanting to see how it turned out, if you've worked on it any...

Sadly not really, but two weeks ago, I got done with the majority of the deck. Then I went on a small vacation with the wife and now I'm back. So now, I can start moving on this project again. For instance, I went and completely changed the driveshaft. So, today I got the splined driveshaft welded and the solid driveshaft cut to length. I also need to now trim the frame a bit. Thank you for the interest. As you know, sometimes more important projects come up.
