So this past weekend after I plowed some dirt around I removed the fenders , wheel weights , seat and hood. I will be getting them sand blasted soon ! And then the rims next . I Still have a bunch of cleaning to do I noticed once I took the back wheels off haha . I'm going to put on the new choke cable next . Im still curious about my gear oil question :/ I'd really like to change it the right way.

You can use 90 weight mineral gear oil in the transmission.

GL-1 is the preferred gear lube. 

 

It is available from NAPA stores or TSC, if you have either near you.

Jarrett, your work area is way to close to the chaise lounge. Unless of course theres a table and mini fridge near by which in that case, i think you have things figured out. 😎

Hello Everyone! i know i haven't posted anything on here in a while but the summer was pretty crazy with work . I just wanted to give you guys an update from May- Now. First i got the hood, fenders and seat sandblasted and while that was happening i took care of the frame of the tractor and by the time i was done with that it was time to prime and paint the parts I got sandblasted. Next ( this past weekend ) i painted the knobs, put on the cable covers, handles,  the plow handle sleeve ( thanks Bolens 1000  :wave:)  and painted the rear rims and wheel weights ( the last picture was before i painted the rear rims ) . My next plan of action is the front rims and the starter. Oh and i just remembered I have to put on the chrome trim that goes down the hood! I also have all of the decals to put on as well. Once i move into my house i plan on dissecting it more ( bolts etc). Have a look and let me know what you guys think!
