Getting it put back together, still barefoot, but not "nekked" anymore!  HPIM1683.JPG  HPIM1685.JPG

 

I need to do some touch-ups, mostly around the 1/4 turn hood fasteners.  Had a little gas drip at the shut-off, not a big deal.  I did have to crank it up, just to listen to it run for a bit!  Put the fenders/footrests on & the 3-pt arms in a day or two, along with the rear wheels.  Just as well leave the fronts off, new front tires should be here this week.

Put the fenders &  rear wheels on this morning, just couldn't wait!  So, on with the fronts even though I'll just have to take them back off in a few days to mount the new tires.  HPIM1687.JPG  HPIM1688.JPG

Made a stop at the local muffler shop this morning & had a couple pieces of pipe swelled to make a replica PTO cover.  Cut to fit, welded them up:  HPIM1690.JPG  Added some body filler:  HPIM1691.JPG  And JD Classic Green paint:  HPIM1694.JPG

 

Total cost $6, compared to $145 for the real thing off ebay:  3613036832114040_1.jpg

 

Also made a hanger for the 3-pt top link.

Now that is one pretty tractor.  I bet you'll get some second glances at your tractor show.  :thumbs:
