Kenny my son stopped by last night , he was saying it would be nice to get it to his house this fall . He has a few small scrub trees to be dug out and dirt leveled where he's planning a pole barn . It would be good to be able to do that so the ground could setting over the winter . He's not planning a floor right away but its sure easier to fill in low spots next spring before the building goes up .

Little more work today . Put some decals on . Tried to figure out why it wasn't charging . Checked the connections , polarized the generator just it case but the problem seems to be the regulator ,had battery voltage to it but when I put a jumper from the positive post of the battery and with a probe touched the spade F terminal it started charging .

Tried cleaning the contacts on the regulator but it didn't help . Worth a try though . Welded 3 new/used teeth on the hoe's bucket . Still waiting for the muffler adapter pipe but wanted to do some work to see what else its going to need . First old stump I wanted to dig out I didn't get it in position and blew a hose on the loader and one on the hoes swing cylinder . Had a used hose for the loader and the swing cylinders had " field attachable fittings " also called reusable . I had new if you can call hose from 1978 new lol ended up making both swing cylinder hoses. Wasn't much effort to dig out the mostly rotten stump . Few more jobs around my house before taking it over to my son's so I'm sure there's going to be more problems to surface

Looking good Al. Awesome barn you have. Always enjoy seeing the architecture of the older barns in different areas.

Shorty thanks for the complement about the barn , that was the look I was trying for . It started out as a 28' x28'  pole barn with a regular style roof but when I designed the addition you see I wanted an upstairs for a woodshop ( filled with stuff ,never got that far lol )  the township wanted a variance if over 15' avg. height . So to get around that the floor in the addition is about 2' lower  7'6" ceiling  28' x 16' the upper floor cantilevers for floor space 28'x18'  , the wall height at the window you see is only about 5' but angles up pretty quick . Those by-pass barn doors you see are made of steel studs left over from a commercial building a friend was working on . , ship-lapped  the corners , cover in plywood then capped the trim in white alum. finished in  vinyl .Those 2 blocked off windows are just to break up that tall side . If you look close they would be about where the upstairs floor joist would be

The exhaust manifold to muffler adapter pipe came yesterday and what should have been a quick install turn to S**T quick .  The made in USA pipe was the correct size but the cast iron manifold was made too small :wallbanging: . the adapter is kind of strange it has a flange that fits both inside and outside the manifold . The outside was machined but the inside was rough casting . Spent about an hour with a die grinder opening it up for it to slip on , even then I couldn't get as far as factory , had to cut a little off the pipe .  once that was in place I put the hood on then muffler . Still more work but getting closer

Sounds frustrating Al. It bugs me bad when a new piece doesn't fit.

I like the barn too.  I'm glad I'm not alone at running into problems as work progresses.  I wish I was always as successful as you at solving the problems. :thumbs:

Washed some dirt and fingerprints off then for some pictures It should give us some goid service .But it's always something , started to move it after taking these pictures and no power steering! Resivior empty no leaks to be seen so maybe leaking into the engine because it gear driven off the timing gears

If it's the p/s steering pump seal that's leaking it doesn't look like its too bad of a job . I looked in the service manual last night and it just unbolts from the timing case no special tools to hold things in place , a gear on the shaft is held with a nut/foldover washer . The seal kit is cheap , under $10 so I'll probably order that and the voltage regulator at the same time . Though I better wait in case  there are more things to order lol
