I use a lot of the Rust Reformer. Seems to work well. I like the self-etching primer and use a lot of it.

Merle013 - They look pretty good with just the rust reformer on them I plan on
getting the rest of the outer frame done asap so I can put some paint on it

KennyP - I just been using the rust reformer for a short while, I like the rust
kill and the primer looking finish it leaves and its a lot cheaper than what I
was using.

I was using dupli-color rust fix I could only find it at the auto parts store
about $7 a can is what I last paid for it and its a super good product I used it
when I done bodywork it does not effect bondo or fiberglass sand and paint right
over it sprays on clear it leaves a protective coating but it needs primer it
will rust back up if the elements gets to it very much.

Update - I am planning on at least getting the outer frame cleaned and sprayed with rust reformer this next week If all goes well.

 

I have a job interview Monday maybe that will work out cause it takes a little money to have a hobby and to keep it moving forward

Merle013 - all went good on the interview they sent me for a drug test and I go back Wednesday to start
orientation 100 - 200mi radius home every night might have a run to GA occasionally not to bad.

Glad to be back working but it cuts into my tractor time but I am at a point where my projects need more
money than time so now I can contribute both maybe get the old sears rolling before cold weather sets in

Going to do all I can this afternoon and Tuesday

Think I might have scored a repower motor if its any good bought a parts tractor for my john deere 210
project with supposedly a spare motor to fix mine with and its not going to work for that project but
has great potential for my old Sears I have it sitting on it now its a K241S 10hp kohler the oil pan is flat on the bottom and it has a 1 1/8" diameter crankshaft well it seems to the pulley off the Onan
motor seemed like it would fit I did not force it on but it started on, the inside of the pulley was a
little rusty and the crank had a little on it to.

It will take a little more effort to make it work a self contained motor would be easier but I already
have this one so if its any good then I will give it a try, I will post some photos of it sitting on
on the SS/Twin tonight

Got some photos of the mighty twin with the kohler motor on it just put one bolt
and a couple clamps on it just sitting there not where it will be I had to get it
out of my little building tired of tripping over it plus its a little motivation
seeing it on the tractor think I will get a game plan going on it now cause it
looks like the other project will require a new plan.

I got the same problem. More projects than I have time or money for. That being said. I just got through looking at a little ford 145 tractor at an auction. Rough shape but everything looks to be there. Another future project won't hurt. LOL

That 145 ford would be a cool future project and the rougher it is the more you will appreciate it when
your done, hope you get it and remember a little time and money is the recipe for another project.

I hope I will be able to stop looking for another project till after these two are done at least till I can save a few dollars, who am I kidding I cant stop but when I find the right one I'll have to brake
open the piggy bank if there is anything in it but think I'll be a little more selective on the next
one kinda need a brake from parts chasing looking for one like the 145 ford at least complete.
