Progress has been made but not picture worthy. I bolted the tranny in, reattached cross member and rear mount. Then broke the tacks on the frame to rear end and frame cross member and shifted everything forward the 3". Also had to dial in the angle of the tranny output and rear end pinion. It's all tacked back together now and I can work on getting the seat remounted and gas tank mounted.

Getting the drive line in its permanent home was a big step forward.

Could pictures of my new seat mount bracket. Still a little work to do. Think 3/8" nutserts will be ok with the seat spring bolts?

I would weld a strip of 3/8 or thicker steel inside that section of steel that the seat spring is going to mount to.

Then drill and tap the holes for the mounting bolts in that instead of using nutserts.

Hmm. May be onto something. Maybe I'll take a piece of 1/4 thick strip steel and weld some nuts to the backside. Then just insert it into the tube.

Did a little battery tray fabrication. Will get it bolted in tomorrow. Left enough room for a tie down to hold the battery in place.

Battery shouldn't fall through that too soon.

I was thinking the same thing. The bracket probably weighs more than the battery! LOL.

Probably! Is that for a GT sized battery or auto sized? I found that the local farm supply carries 400 amp GT sizes. I've been buying those at $50. Seem to last longer.

Will be a gt battery. Plan to use this retired battery for mockup and install a new perty one after the tractor is done.
