Are you going to touch up the white on the cover? Thanks for the dimensions and pics.

The dash has chrome silver on the letters. Best I can do is Silver here. That will take the better part of a day.

 I used a white paint pen for mine and it has held up wonderfully.

I'll see if a silver pen is available locally here in a bit. The FF's have Silver letters also.

No silver pen in the store, so I did what I could to dress it up some.

2015-05-30 15.29.21.jpg

 

Then I went to work on the front axle. Got it pulled.

Some time back, Keith made this new center pin for the front axle. It was time to put it in.

2015-05-30 15.30.58.jpg

 

I also added a grease fitting for the center pin that was left off.

2015-05-30 15.30.33.jpg

 

Got the pin holders welded on.

The axle is back in and much tighter. I am going to forgo the secondary hydraulics at this time until I can amass more fittings and lines. Tomorrow, the engine goes back in.

Will you be able to get in there to add secondary hydraulics with engine back in?

I'll probably have to pull it back out, but that doesn't take too long. Not much room with the engine and that 5 gallon fuel tank in there!

Went out this morning and got the dash put back together.

2015-05-31 11.26.56.jpg

 

Then I went putting the engine back in. Didn't take that long and it was all buttoned down and hooked up.

2015-05-31 12.51.31.jpg

 

Worked a while on getting things back where they belong.

2015-05-31 13.08.21.jpg   

 

The left side of the hood is now back where it should be.

2015-05-31 13.28.24.jpg

 

Here's the back side of the hood.

2015-05-31 13.28.41.jpg

 

Put the side panels on and got them adjusted in.

2015-05-31 13.44.20.jpg     2015-05-31 13.44.34.jpg

 

Here's a shot of the left side. Can't do the right as I can't back up far enough.

2015-05-31 13.45.02.jpg

 

Put the tunnel cover back on.

2015-05-31 14.32.51.jpg

 

Here's a shot of the tractor.

2015-05-31 14.33.28.jpg

 

I got it to fire off and run good at low-mid throttle. Has an issue with more than that. I'll look into the manual on the governor setting as I am unsyure if I have that correct at the moment. Plus it's running on old gas with extra Seafoam & MMO in there.

It may just work for you. How many $ are they wanting for that? I might break up my stash and sell you one!

I tried a different battery yesterday and it was too far gone. And using the big charger to crank it over fried either the solenoid or the switch as it turns over with the switch off now. After I get this job done, I'll buy a new battery for it. I have another solenoid and switch already. Just need to test things out to see what happened.

Spent some time on the Ford today! Found out the solenoid was bad. With the key off I was getting 2.5 volts to the starter through it. Changed it out and tried a small L&G battery I had sitting around. It needed the small charger on it to turn this over. Got it running again. 2 Issues! Not charging, stator is only putting out 19 volts. And can't go more than half throttle and it starts missing and spitting fuel back out the carb. Almost acts like it is flooding. I'll get the carb I had on it in the AC and see if it runs better. But I'll have to pull the engine to change the stator out.
