You can buy wheel spacers also. Might have had those to space out for chains.

I do not see the 1/4" thick piece listed anywhere in either the 35 AA or 35 AB manual. It is mounted as I have it pictured and the wheel is solely supported by the lug bolts. Could this be something that someone had made to space the wheels out more.

 

Those are the spacers for the chains that went on the 35AA 4x18 tires I think.   I see your front rims are on backwards anyways so maybe some made them two I dont see why it be a bad thing putting them back on there if you are putting the rims facing the right way.  There very tipsy with the 4x18 tires.

Actually, they are not all that stable with the 16 inchers either. Just try to run one across even a slight side slope sometime!

Bummer, today I had the tires I got form Miller tire mounted in the right direction for the wheels to be mounted correctly. This will only be a show item at best. Thanks for the tip on tipsy.

I sure do love my cabinet sand blaster. The one sitting behind the spring in the wood shop is used outdoors in the open and preferable in warm weather. I did manage to find a day before Christmas to do the main drive unit.

There were none in it before I sandblasted it and if one does appear I can solder it with an iron.

Pieces ,pieces everywhere but I am sure I can figure out where they all go. The drive shaft tube must have gotten a small dent in is and it worn thru. As anyone can see I did a patch with fiberglass and when sanded & painted I doubt anyone will notice it. I am using rattle cans to paint it because that is all I know or am set up to do. It is NAPA  acryl enamel and it is not cheap as we only have one NAPA store in the area that does them. Every piece of metal that you see have been sand blasted to bare metal. All the attachment will be done that way also.

As many of you may know that I could not find a seal (National 6273) for my Ridemaster. I had to go with a metric size and have 20 thousands lathed off this surface. If any of you ever run into this problem you can do the same. It is just a bit sloppy in the cup but just an every so light dab of epoxy will take care of that problem.

I am amazed at how much progress you have made on this since you first started. It is really coming along nice. That color looks good. Is that a special mix that NAPA had to make?

I got the mix from someone on this site , not sure who however. When I handed it to the guy at NAPA he had to call HQ as the color qualities were for quarts. They broke it down to rattle can size. Having the blast cabinet help to speed things up.

Progress is being made, a new steering wheel is on order as are the decals. I chatted with the engine shop and we decide to do the valves while it is apart. I am hoping to have it back in a few weeks . Gas tank also needs to be bolted back into place. The culvators that were on it have all been sand blasted to bare metal , primed and painted.
