If you notice that sheet in the background. Under that is a Elek-Trak that is finished. We have something to look at while working on his.

We didn't tear into his while working on mine so as to have one to refer to. :smilewink:

Big brother (Traill95)  got started without me. He had a lot of the dismantling done. (The easy Stuff).  We manged to dismantle the rest this afternoon.There were some stubborn bolts and parts but we got it done. I need to get some parts to the sand blast guy. Clean a bunch of others and do some painting.  Going to have to buy some replacement panels. a motor and batteries.  This rebuild will  be getting deep into my pockets!

Heres pictures of the pile of parts.     Rick

Both boxes are in sad shape.  Will be replacing both.

 

I have a couple electric conversion projects on the back burner.

I  may need to pick your brain sometime, when i get started on them.  :D   Rick

Great Project! I'll be doing the same to my EGT 120 at some point this coming fall. I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes.

 

Good luck!

FRUSTRATED

Sorry for not getting back to this posting sooner.  Also apologize for not having a bunch of pictures for you. 

Most of the parts have been replaced or refurbished.  New motor, new tires.  Thrust washers on front spindles.

Painting is done and most of the reassembly is done. 

The seat is being recovered.

At the moment we are at a standstill trying to discover where the electrical problem is.  With the power switched on, and the key is switched on, and the safety switches in place, and you engage the directional conrol lever there is no signal to the RTN relay, and thus no engagement of the drive motor.  However if I press the contacts on the RTN relay with my finger the motor engages and runs at speed in forward and reverse.   The only obvious component showing a problem would be the diode varistor board.

Has anyone had any experience with this component?  Evedently it is not readily available for replacement. 

If I knew what the diodes were and a schemantic showing their position and flow direction I could solder a new one.

Thanks   Rick

IT,S  A  RUNNER!!!       :dancingbanana:

 

Replaced the diode varistor board, and the RTN relay.    Voila!     IT RUNS!!!      :dancingbanana:

After a few laps around my brothers yard I loaded it up and brought it home.

Still waiting for the upholsterer to redo my seat. 

I need to tidy it up and put a few more parts on it.  Ready for the decals.

 

Oh yeah, did I mention ...IT RUNS!!     :dancingbanana:

 

I need to get the mower deck done now.
