new kubota ignition switch. 15$ from ebay
[ATTACH]12621[/ATTACH]
new donaldson air cleaner assembly 40$ shipped from ebay
[ATTACH]12622[/ATTACH]
I put the pto adapter on the lathe and trued the mounting flange. Im using stock length belts
[ATTACH]12623[/ATTACH]
I made this adapter for the driveshaft to bolt to the flywheel. It has a pilot that slides into the hole in the flywheel like a transmission input shaft does.
Yokes are weasler 6n
[ATTACH]12626[/ATTACH]
Slip yoke with 3/4 by 7/8" bar shaft. Im going to see what i can find for a hydro fan. If i cant find anything ill get a conversion u-joint to go from 6n to n1000 then reuse the old yoke and fan from the original driveshaft.

Started making some brackets to mount the radiator out of angle iron. Getting closer to a test run!!!!!

Hammer, I didn't even put my hydro fan back on my driveshaft. Cumbersome to install & I have hoses running close by, so opted to drop it & just add an oil cooler. If your tractor's hydro is ported, then you can just take the return line through a cooler before it re-enters the reservoir. Looks like you have plenty of room for a cooler on the dash side of your radiator.
And as to your work so far....superb! How old/young are you again? Great work for any age!

Daniel, I like that option. Ill have to see what kind of room is left after the power steering valve is in there. i still need to purchase one. I was also throwing around the idea of a hydraulic rear pto over a mechanical one. still not sure what direction im going with that.
Im 24. thanks for the kind words.

Didnt get any work done on the tractor today. i kind of just stared at it for a while. i did order some more parts for it though. exhaust manifold and fuel filter. a few covers i needed for the engine too.
This project will be on hold shortly until i repair the engine in the massey 2924d and get it sold

i am but its a long ways off. I still need to add power steering, individual turning brakes, gauges and dash panel,wiring, lengthen hood, lengthen the pto rod, build a three point hitch with its own hydraulic cylinder, front and rear hydraulic hookups hydraulic oil cooler and paint.
The engine seems to run better than i remember so maybe ill run it the way it is for a while instead of rebuilding it right away.
Then i still have to go through all the attachments as well as a few i would like to make for it. Its a fun project so far
