Update
Had to lenghten the articulation point 5" to make the steer cylinders fit and torn down to get some paint on the innerds so the hydraulic hosing does not get over sprayed.

And OH BOY did you notice that tire? Well 2 of the Carlisle tire came in and do they look good.

Here is a comparison old tire, new tire, and Mounted tire.
The center one is on a rim with 20 PSI in it.
Will mount the other one this weekend and finish up the work on the extension

PS Sick Hydro also in the Hydraulic Hospital.

I've heard cheaper meds can gotten across the boarder to the north. plus they have those meds to make things stronger and last longer.

but watch out if you get more the 4 hours of use at a time.

Ducky, just went back thru the whole thread and this is SWEET. May have to get the Hydro some medical insurance. Of course, that would probably cost more.

Nice looking new shoes for your project Ducky! Sorry your hydro had to go to the hospital. I hope it has a quick and speedy recovery and can get back to work real soon.

Well, been working on some paint on the interiors and engine and some final fitting.
Also got the geometry for the steering figured out and built.
