I am well on the way with dismantling the Model D.
Most parts seem reasonably OK.
Sprockets and chain have to go, as the V belts too.
The previous owner has welded securing rings to the bottomend of both steering "pins" to which the wheel hubs are connected.
There is a lot of play on these pins and i want to fix that.
Problem is, if i grind off the welded securing rings the whole assembly will fall down but will i be able to put it together again?.??
I can,t see too much details in the manual.
Anybody has any experience with that please ?
Looking forward to hear from anybody who can help.

Yahoo has a group for Gibson tractors with lots of information including manuals. There is also a guy named Joe that sells brake bands for about $125 with some hardware and are very nicely made. His contact information can also be find on that group.
