She's gonna be sharp Kenny!  I like the orange diff w/black axle housings.  :thumbs:

Wait until it's all together! I've held myself back today. I'm doing a sit down & think before I move on to another part. Don't want to take something off because I got in a hurry.

It's hard to go slow at this point isn't it!

Steve painted the rest of the parts yesterday, but both fenders will need wet sanded and another coat. That's fine with me as they can be the last thing on.  Still plenty to do.

Dang hard, Daniel! But, some things need put on in order just to ease installation.

I got a few more things added on today. Most of the hydraulic hoses are installed. And the 3-point is hooked onto the seat support. Got the fill port and vent plumbed in to. Won't be too long now.

The orange glow is from a halogen light I have next to the tractor.

Here's a pic of the side of the dash pedestal that had severe rust rot on it.

Steve did a fine job on the rotted pedestal!  Looking even better every post you make!

I got a few things done today. All hydraulics lines are hooked up. Oil cooler is mounted. Tool box and seat are in place. Dash pedestal is bolted down. Some wiring and the engine are installed. Throttle & choke are hooked up.

Sure is, Daniel! I don't know what it is about this tractor, but it sure reminds me of a BH. Can't really spot what it is, but just something keeps saying BH. Might get to start it tomorrow!

It will be a few days yet before I get the hood & fenders. Waiting for the temps to warm some. The activator for the paint says 70° & above. Been just right at 70 for a while now, but warming this week! But I can get it running and the hydro filled.
