Mine's still alive!

Got a few more going to some Co-Workers. Apparently folks like these, the dogs hate stepping on them. I'll get the yard free of them eventually.

Maybe you should sell them to fund future tractor rebuilds.

Picked up some stuff at HF today to help the process. A dolly that I modified into a transmission stand. makes moving it around easy. sand paper for the mouse sander and the big sheets for hand sanding, some new dermal wire brushes, and a new air pressure gauge (need a short hose with fittings tho).

Figured I had better get something done this morning as the weather guessers are predicting Noah’s flood this afternoon and tomorrow. I started on the rims, first taking the dremel grinding wheel to smooth out the nicks around the rim bead area. Then after that, wire brush and sand paper the whole rim. One of the back rims is pitted pretty good, so I went to the parts shed to see if I had a better one.

 

Well, I found RED, and had forgot to clean him up from the last mowing, while I was doing that I found the issue with his LED’s flickering, The solder didn’t adhere to the switch terminal, All is good with him now.

 

Back to the rims, I found a nice pair of white Sears rims but they are wider, and the valve stem is on the inside. I finally found another rim that is in better shape. More sanding and wire brush. Then I washed them, and the side rails in simple green. Everything is drying now.

Teaser, I wanted to see how green this paint is as I haven't used it yet. These will dry 24 hours before I flip them over for the other side. Had to bring them in as it's fixing to rain now.

Well the rain has not appeared, so I put the first coat on the rear rims. Had to do this in the shop due to the wind. I really like the way this paint goes on, smooth and no runs. I hit the first rim with a coat, then do the second rim. This gives the first rim time to tack up. Then I go for a second coat. Moved the rims inside for drying. Still need to do the other side once this hardens enough to turn them over.

Hey Larry,

 

Great job on those wheels. Might have missed it but what kind of paint are you using?

The paint is a local brand "Fred's". I like the paint but they only offer basic colors, and when I buy them out, it takes them a while to re-stock. Same paint as I used on BOH.  They are local here. Enter your zip here to see if any are close. http://www.fredsinc.com/

I noticed the brake band material was a little thin in one area, Sense I have new material I am forming a new brake band. I'll JB this in tomorrow. The rims are doing good. I'll flip them tomorrow and do the final touch ups on them. FYI rims took two cans of paint.

Weather alert radio woke me up at 5:30, we are under a tornado watch all day today. Had to do a touch up on one of the rims, dang bugs :mad2: . Raining now, guess I'll work on the brake band today, can't do much else other than keep an eye on the weather.
