Ahh, man! That looked good.

Beautiful day for power washing more parts. Brought out most of the front end parts and power washed them. Tomorrow will be sanding, and scrub washing with simple green to get these ready for paint. Looked over the chassis diagram and decided to work on this section on the floor as it will get heavy real quick. I guess it is time to start putting away for new tires.

Nice day for paint! Fells like mid April or May today. Cleaned up a bunch of parts, dried quick, masked and painted. Working on my next list of hardware to attach things together, this gives the paint a good time to dry hard.

just found this post, I just bought a Sears about a week ago and can't wait until it warms up to get it going. Do me a favor send up some of that BBQ and some warm weather. Great job on your resto.

Need another pay day before I can continue :( . Looking foreword to electrical. All new switches are a must, the wire harness isn't too bad but the wires are some what faded. I sourced new Packard 14/16 Ga. terminals, I'll re-use the connector blocks. I think most of the wires are 16 Ga. and the colors are Red, White, Black, Yellow, and Orange. Some of the white wires have turned pink :O.

Rub it in  :poke:   I think we may have hit 42* yesteday.

 

That wiring looks like the rat's nest under my Sears, mine is a mess also.

Whenever I get around to finising retoring my other ST16, I may just make an entire new harness.

When we restored my friends 78 chevy we use a rag and paint thinner to clean the wires, they cleaned up very well but we also wanted to use as much of the original equipment as we could.

I hate being sick :( . Been off work and in bed the last couple days with a head cold. Side affect from being out in the warm weather scrubbing parts and working up a sweat. I ordered a couple more items (that are still available) today. 

6635H Idler pulley (the 6636H is NLA but I should get close at T/S). A 7793R Light switch and the 7754R Solenoid are all available.

And a pack of 56 electrical terminals. I should be able to get the wire locally. Was going over the hardware for the chassis, and decided to re-use the bolts that are in good shape and just replace the broken bolts.

I ran across a contradiction between the Roper manual and Sears 19.9 manual. One calls for a (Hex Bolt 3/8-16X1) and the other a (Sh. Shldr Carrage 3/8-16X1 Gr.5) I decided on Gr.5 for all the frame bolts, and if there is a square knock-out in the frame use the short shoulder carriage bolts. Things are moving along, and I am feeling better. Space-X having at it again today, rattles the shop tin when they fire off those engines, Still going at it this late in the evening, I guess 4-5 separate tests today.

I think all my machines have the hex head bolts.
Interesting they weren't the same.
