Nice day today, went out and power-washed the rig and engine. Much nicer now.  I'm thinking instead of my usual tear-down and repaint, I'm gonna just adjust, lube and fix items and put back together again as is. THEN, can enjoy it some this summer, yet might still tear down at later date for the complete do-over, like I usually do.

 

Here's some pix after wheels back on and putting away, and the MM watching too!

That looks like an Eaton.Is that the one missing neutral? Might be nice enough to check on that tank this week.

 

Man! I wasn't prepared for that last pic.That's like one of those gags where you stare at the screen and this scary face pops out at you.

Gtractor, that is my LAST Moline out of the four or five I've had last few years. I'm getting out of the tractor hobbie and have sold that now. Fella's in Kansas and working on the pick-up now. Usually inside, but was supposed to be picked up, but didn't fit in enclosed trailer, so not gone yet.

 

Username, not sure on missing N?? Seemed OK in my test today, ran it with a drill.  Tank??  OH, PK tank on tractor, yep, great!

The ME pix is from figuring phone out, and just threw it on for fun.

 

Alc, this is little diff frame than most, not your usual Speedex with there big gear axle and such. Think kind of a one off for this model?  Design of metals and systems are similar on most, just a little diff than ones where engines slide for the clutch action.

Today, went out and painted my engine (silver) with red start pulley and intake. That silver really set it off in other Speedex I built, so trying here again. It was red, just like rest of tractor. Put together the carb with new kit, have spark now. Will be bolting it all up soon and gonna mount to bench and try to run it. Need to fix my drive-shaft coupler issue before I can put it in frame again. Kinda hard to find warm enough days to paint so far, but today wasn't bad and lots of sun to help dry it in.
