Picked up some paint for the wheels , steering wheel spokes, and seat. Little ahead of myself but what the heck.

Revised the steering idler mounts. Now it's all attached to the steering support structure. Also 100% symmetrical.

 

Now I also have 2 points of tension/alignment. Cables are good and tight and moving smooth. 

 

My order of shoulder bolts came in today but I didn't get time to swap out the full threaded bolts.. Should give me a nice smooth movement after the swap. 

Will cut off the old bracket tomorrow.

Good progress on the drive belt tensioner setup. Made the shim block and welded some nuts inside the tube for the tensioner to bolt to. Measured for a belt length. Also replaced the idler pulley fastener with a longer bolt that will give me a pull point for the lever actuated clutch. :)

Worked in the tractor some today. Sucks my bolens rear wheels will not work. The offset is way off in both orientations! What rear wheels have people been using?

I got a set of wheels from miller tire. that you weld the center in yourself any off set you want. on my t70 I drilled out the weld and changed offset to go around drums.

I pondered drilling the weld and changing the offset... prbly the best move. Thanks!

Ironically neither fit. Lol. Too long. Luckily I had some misordered belts in the shop that did. A25 works well. I need to tweak the tensioner location a bit more then finish weld it down.

Next up will be making the clevis piece to accept the cable and cable mounting bracket. Then I should hopefully have a clutch setup to test.

I have enjoyed following your different designs for the steering.

Being a fabricator myself, I understand the thought process of trying one thing after another until you finally figure out something that works.

Then you sit back and say to your self " Dummy ... why didn't I just do that in the first place ? "

Very true.. most of it was just the stubbornness in wanting to keep the OE center pull setup, and the car-like steering wheel angle.

I haven't had much time to work on it...but I did get the drive clutch setup done, final chain setup installed and aligned, and just need to weld in the battery hold downs that I fabbed up. She's really coming along now!

Hopefully get the gas tank sealed and then some wiring and try out the driveline!
