Pete awesome job so far, dad's going to love it.  One question, where's the engine?  :smilewink:  Is that getting a full rebuild or just a refresh? okay that's 2 questions.

   me and dad rebuilt the engine last summer but got it a little wrong.  I had the motor bored where I work and they did it a little small so when I installed the rings for the first run everything was to tight.  I had to re-hone it out two or three times to get the clearances correct and by that time there was to much of a ring gap.  I got new rings but dad really wanted to go and use it so we left the old rings in there and by the end of the summer it was smoking under load when hot.  I actually just brought it in this afternoon to start on it.  going to re-ring it and put new seals around the governor and points shaft so they will not leak any more.

    Basically this it was our first motor rebuild and it went a little rough.   thank you everybody for your kind words, dad is on his way home this week and will be here in a few weeks so I need to get going and wrap this up.

    Had Monday of so I tore in to the motor while I was hanging around, got it all disassembled to look at what I needed to replace again. already have the rings so I went ahead and ordered the rest of the stuff up.  replacing the bushings for the points plunger and governor shaft, also need to replace the plug that holds the cam in place.  al three were leaking oil and I really don't want this engine to leak oil in that brand new tractor !!!  while I have it apart I will blast all the tinwork and repaint it so the entire thing will look brand new  :thumbs:  there was allot of carbon buildup in there due to excessive ring gap, especially when you think we only mowed with this for one summer before the teardown.

  so dad got home last week and was super exited to see his tractor as far as I got it. slowing way down now, to much other stuff going on.  ordered all the stuff for the motor just need to wait for it to come in and get the engine back together and painted.  I did get the hood wing nuts made up and polished they look great, the stainless will last forever polished like that.  the seat is all mounted on and ready to go.  Started on the mower deck today as well, need to get that all rebuilt and repainted.

I need to get some of those hood bolts for mine someday. You could make some good money reproducing them.

It's really coming along Pete, and your dad will enjoy it for sure! Great job on the hood bolts man! I was just looking up the bearing part number for my 42" deck. I have to rebuild the mandrel before the grass starts growing.

   I have thought about making those hood bolts and selling them but they take awhile to get done.  I have about 5 hours into making this set, if I had my own lathe here to work on I would give it a shot.  I do have a set of old ones here but they are not in that good of cond.pm me if interested.

Hey Pete, what did you use for the base of the bolt and do you have a knurling head for a lathe? I want to make some for myself and have all the tooling, just wanted to know what you started with. Thanks and the "B" really looks great!
