Everything is so nice and shiny that I almost have to put sun glasses on to look at the photos.
Looks like it is coming along very nicely.
Yeah the NEW parts anyway--LOL! I feel a bit guilty about not detailing all the 40 year old stuff too but I just try to keep in perspective what my budget, timeframe and purpose allows. Still eats at me though!
I love the solution to the air cleaner! I have to remember that one for myself!
Thanks, it looks like your 12G is beautiful and useful too!
A little more progress this afternoon, with the wiring alteration done, and test fitting the hood and grill again with everything pretty much in place. Then I worked up the guts to hook the daughters jump start box to it. The engine bumped over nicely! I didn't crank it yet, no oil in it.
I need to take care of some play on the implement drive pedal as the pulley bolt hits the vari-drive belt a little bit. Not sure how I may deal with that yet and it may have been doing it with the original setup. Then a brake and vari drive adjustment is needed as the brake never did grab good when the vari drive was in "park" and now there's no telling if any of that is even close, but I think things are within a reasonable range with this engine.
Back to work tomorrow so progress won't be reported as frequently for awhile.
