Meangreen took a short video of me coming up his driveway. Hood off & pipes sounding off! LOL
Not sure what is the problem with the charging, as it's not charging at all, but if it's the regulator, rectifier, or stator, she'll get an alternator installed via belt drive. I'll not be using a deck, so that will be a fairly simple add-on.
The Allis trans works great! But I was so tired & hot, that I forgot to test the 3pt lift! lol Had to rob an electric fuel pump off another tractor, as this mechanical pump didn't quite cut it. The oil light works too! I didn't get it driving till after 6pm even though I started at 9am. Everybody & their cousin, including my brother came by. I couldn't work a half an hour without having to stop for up to 2hrs at a time! I was about to blow a gasket! One day off and a deluge of people coming in. Oh well, that's how it always goes here, but at least I met my goal. Fred (meangreen) came by, but saw my brother was here & left! Fred is always welcome at ANY time!

Great to hear it's among the living again. You'll have all those little things fixed before long. Will be nice to see pics of it all dressed up.
Thanks.

Thanks Kenny, but don't hold your breath for beauty shots of this one. This will end up the busiest farm year for me ever. No beginning dressing this one up till at least winter as it looks. Getting to where little free time at all, and then I'll be too dang tired. But she'll get gussies up someday for sure, just not sure when.

That's great, that you got her up and running.
Sure sounds like, and looks like a beast.

I hear you, about nonstop guests dropping in. I do my tractor wrenching here at the business.
Even after hours, there's always someone in your face. They need hobbies.

I'll patiently wait for the 'all dressed up' pics. Right now, just some clothes on the old girl would be nice. Get what you can as you can. I promise not to bug you too much for pics.

Hoping in a week or two that I can build an exhaust system. It will be a single exhaust stack out the left side, snaking out under the hood, next to the dipstick, then a small muffler.

Sounds good. Hope things settle down around there before long. I know you have a lot to accomplish on the farm right now. Good luck with it all.

Been working on a 2 into 1 exhaust so I'd have a single stack muffler. I'm almost done. Just like a brace to make it more solid to the engine block, and to cap the ends of the collector tube. I've gotta run into town tonight for stuff for In-Law's 50th anniversary tomorrow, so going to just pick up a couple 1 5/8" freeze plugs to use for end caps. I think it looks decent for the time put into it. Man is it a miracle I would stay out in this oven heat to even do this today! A GT nut I definitely am!
I didn't want to have to carry my MIG down here to the farm shop, so I just used a stick welder, so the welds aren't the slickest, but they WILL hold! Two of these mufflers came with this tractor, and the ends had been cut on, so had to weld a new exit pipe onto this one.

Uncle, I give, white flag, or whatever.....it's just too danged hot to work on my GT's right now! Can't keep sweat out of my eyes, can't think straight....just plain miserable! On top of that, now the 720's starter is acting weird and won't crank her over. I put known good battery cables, plus my boost box on her & no better. Looks like I'll have to pull the engine to get at the starter!:wallbanging::wallbanging: I pray for a COOL DOWN!
