I finally had time to get some color on the frame and tower panels today. Next week is the other side of the frame and the rear fender.

Isn't it a great feeling to shoot the first coat of the color the tractor is going to become?

It was until the lights went out in that corner,lol. Next week I can move everything to a better area to work rather than our junk corner of the shop.

I'll lurk around here as I have a 416S that could use some makeup!

The only problem I see is the cream color I bought looks more cream and less white. Every paint code I had would not work except that one. I have seen the color on older Allis tractors and it looks great but it probally will not be the exact color the gt was born with. One of the hood supports has gone missing so today is a search and rescue mission for that.Hopefully in a couple of weeks I can find the funds for the V61 front tires then I will have a roller again. I can't wait to bolt the new engine in against that new orange paint!

 It has been three years of finding the correct parts and the time and money to finish it and the excitement is building now :)

Good luck with the funding! That is an issue here as well!

Today I managed to find the last of the missing pieces I need to paint. I spent a couple of hours taking three wiring harnesses and making one. Wired in the electric lift harness to the main harness and retracted it all. Finally I put the decals and new coil on the rebuilt engine but I need to find a smaller coil bracket. Man I forgot how many pieces I took off of this thing!

I've been working after work pre-assembling the 416 so I can see if anything is missing. Looks like everything is here now I need to take it apart again and put the final coat of orange paint on it then bring it home for the final assembly. Still trying to find a smaller coil mount for the engine. This one looks terrible!

This looks real nice. I'm doing a MTD990 right now & just started putting it back together. I think what overwhelmed me was the amount of bolts. I did loose two parts but found them later. Fitting your hood is a good idea before finish coat. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

I figured I should fit the hood since the nose came off a 310. The original hood and nose and hood were too damaged to reuse.

I brought the front assembly home from work today. First time she has been here in nearly a year! I have some wet sanding to do then the reassembly starts. I'm cleaning and painting the electric lift and getting ready to mount it then prepping and painting the transaxle.

 I'm hoping to spray the crème on the hood, grill, and front wheels as soon as this cold snap passes then I can mount the new tires on the front and she will be a roller again.

We had a busy weekend putting the 416 back together. The front half is now reattached to the transaxle. The drive shaft and steering is in and after a lot of trial and error we got the new electric lift installed. The last pic is of a square clip that goes in the shifter cover and also the shuttle quadrant. Does anyone know a source for these or have a couple they would sell?

Pic of the clip is blurred, but I think it looks like a clip found on lots of vehicles.

The clips are NLA as far as I could find out. I am going to try the plastic clips they usr to bolt car tags to the bumper. They fit the holes but I might have to shave a little off the top to get things to line up.

I thought I had a parts listing on the old computer, but can't find it right now. Can you take a better pic of the clip?
