So more like the setup that stamps car parts? I'm familiar with that type of setup. Thanks and keep up the good work, your dad should be very proud of you.

   Yep exactly like stamping car parts, good way to put it actually.  the nice thing about it is now that I have this figures out I can make a few extra's and stick them on e-bay :D use that $$ to buy more parts for my own tractors, I used to make light bars for these allis tractors.  did pretty well for awhile, I should make more.  Thanks guys for the kind words, this has been a challenge, the tractor really has been whupped pretty bad, I had to go out back and tear apart another bgb for the input shaft toninte.  the one in dads had gotten loose at some point or another and was worn out just enough to make me nervous.

    It should be brand new when I am done, we did the motor last summer and had the rear transaxle was rebuilt last winter so it should be good for another 50 years after this.

   I think I am busted as well !!!!!!  didn't figure dad would be on here snooping around while they were in new mexico but I heard a rumor he has seen this thread so ------  I will wait and see if he chimes in.

   Weekends are good !!!!  I got allot done this weekend.  all the big stuff is painted and home and I even started to re assemble stuff.  took the clutch apart, cleaned it all up and fixed the holes.  should have it painted tomorrow and re-assemble on tue.  I ordered the decal set the other day.  now comes the fun part, putting everything back together.

   Bushings and bolts are in now, re-bushed the front spindle's and started to re-assemble.  I had to fix the steering it was worn out badly and there were no bushings in there to replace, put it in a lathe and bored it out to be able to put oil-lite bushings in there. put new bushings in the rear axle hub.  now it is all tightened up and ready to go.  I also added a bushing in the back of the front axle assembly to hopefully stop the wear and tear that is typical on these tractors.

   I ordered all the stainless hardware from stainlesstown.com they were great, reasonable and super fast ship.

   Got the new voltmeter in today, looks great and I got a good deal on two of them from e-bay so I am happy.  not doing to much work on the tractor now, to fkn cold out there.  I cant keep the garage warm enough in this cold.

Your work is impressive to say the least. Your Dad should be really surprised when he see what you have done over the winter for him.

   I LEFT THE PILOT BEARING OUT !!!!!!!!!!!!  not sure how I missed it but when I re-assembled the BGB I left the pilot bearing out of there, doing more assy work today and when I treid to put the driveshaft in I noticed the input shaft was very loose !! had to tear it apart and put the bearing back in there.  how did I miss that ??  Luckily I got the seals out and found the bearing in the other BGB I have.  Stupid thing to do but at least I noticed it and fixed it before I put the tractor back into service.  Pics to come.

   Dave, I am not really positive what I used.  I am almost positive it is nylon, we use this stuff all the time at work for making bushings and wear plates for the sandblast conveyors and it is super durable.  I just grabbed a leftover piece to make the bushing.

whoops !!!!!!!  I got my new decal set today and was super exited, I ordered it from maple hunter decals and they are great.  I mean these things are very nice decals.  the trouble I have is that a few years ago I ordered a set of decals for my big ten that I am going to restore eventually.  I got the other decal set out and viola I had two of the same decal sets.  how can this happen ??  oh well I am going to list this set on e-bay and buy the correct big ten set.

   I highly recommend maple hunter decals, they are very impressive.
