Today I started working on a new project that has been on the list for a few months now. First thing I did was haul the Squire 10 and 2 B10's to the shop where I work. I did that so I could work in a heated garage. After a lot of work we had the engines removed from both tractors along with some other parts that will need to be replaced. That was it for today, the pictures tell the rest of the story.

 

My plan for this tractor is to replace the bad parts and get the tractor running and driving. After that I am going to leave the tractor looking like it does now. That's why I named it the Crusty Monkey lol.

I see several Monkeys in these pictures.....12 Monkeys?  Not sure which model we are talking about for sure. Yes, MOST of them look like clean-up and rebuild is in the need!  I have bought rough ones in past, but now prefer a little more together and cleaner to buy.  Would take me Years to do all these the way I do tearing them all down to little parts and working them back to new.

Today was a productive day working on the Crusty Monkey.

 

First job was to clean out the frame. It was full of dirt and other nasty stuff. After cleaning it out I wired brushed it and threw a coat of primer on to help slow down the rust.

The next task was to remove the seized steering gears and replace them with the earlier setup from the B10. Now the Crusty monkey can turn again.

 

The final project of the day was to install the new engine, bolt it down and bolt on the drive shaft. Tomorrow I probably bolt on the dash tower and a few other parts.

Matt, it's really coming along. Are you going to give her a new coat of gold paint?

Nope. My plan for now is to just get her running and then leave her as is. To me the different colors of paint, rust, grease and dirt help to give her a unique personality.

Making good progress so far! I prefer the user/worker look as well, all those imperfections just add up to good conversation come story time. :thumbs:

It's starting to look like a tractor again. All that's left to be done now is lots of small stuff. The fuel tank needs cleaned, the carb needs rebuilt/replaced and there are some other small things that need attention.
