Today I decided to rebuild the brace for my stack again. The last one wasn't stiff enough. So with some "make it up as you go engineering"  aka using a drill, grinder/cutoff wheel, and a cheap welder my brother and I fabricated a new brace. It's not pretty but it should work. I will get pictures of the brace as soon as I have my good camera again.

 

After the brace was built and painted it was time to reassemble everything. Ad usual my 1050 fired up on the first pull and ran perfect. The last time it ran was back in November at the Renfrew Plow Day.  

 

Here are a few pictures from today. One of my two work horses, the 1050 and the JD 140H3, and the other is the 1050 saying goodbye the 750 that is going to be scrapped.

So, how solid is the stack? I ask because I want to put one on and am worried about it being too floppy.

The stack is very solid if you do it right. Mine is sort of loose in the block because I didn't brace it properly the first time I built it.

 

I will get you some pictures of my set up in a day or two when I get my good camera again.

Looks like there are still some decent parts on the "scrapper".

Yes there are still plenty of decent parts on it. I tried for months to sell it with zero interest. My price was very fair too. SO I got tired of seeing it sit around. I saved a few pieces from it and will haul the rest away when I get some time.

That's a shame. As soon as you haul it off you'll need something off of it.
