I am working on a ton of things and decided I needed a fun project. The Hi-low tractor is getting the trans pulled, and engine pulled. So I have a parts chassis.

Original T-800 trans is getting painted and going in. Quick paint job. Going to take all the spare parts I have and slap it on. I am giving my self 3 weeks to get this done

I pulled the engine tonight. I cleaned and painted a ford 120 front axle and installed it on the project. The grill will get painted tomorrow along with all the white pieces.

Those K engines made here or foreign, OR, someone elses with name badge??  Didn't even know they made or sold in that brand. Wonder if any good and if expensive?  Don't like the Grey they are, like in your picture.

I am dead in the water on my Ford 100 service, so I am back to the Jalopy. One problem I have always had was the steering on the early one. The design was primitive but was perfected later on. I have a 1969 ford 120 parts tractor. The front axle and steering sector was taken and installed on the Jalopy. No modifications was needed simple switch. Beefier and way less slop. This is not a restoration or anything close. I am building a junk yard dog.

I was able to get the front end buttoned up. Grill painted. Need to clean and paint the Replacement trans that is going in and the headlight assembly.I have collected parts for a few years for my T-800 so all my duplicates are getting slapped on this Jalopy

Kind of amazing how that frame design looks a lot like a wheelhorse!  Makes it easy to work on the flat area for engine mounting and other items.

Engine will be here next Saturday. I have almost everything ready for the swap. I still need to change transmissions. The Hi-low transmission in it is very important for another project.
