An update on some slow progress. The past two week have been spent finishing up painting the Flambeau red parts. The 4 rims where done yesterday attachicon.gif100_0535.JPG. The lift cylinder has been installed along with the new hydraulic pump.attachicon.gif100_0536.JPG. The front axle (minus the rims and tires) is back together now. attachicon.gif100_0537.JPG I have 2 new 5 rib tires ordered for the front, the back tires I will be reusing the original tires and tubes. I plan on starting on cleaning and painting the tan parts next weekend. 

 

Any Case experts know where or what this part is for? attachicon.gifIMG_20171112_110140511.jpg It is the only part i cannot figure out where it came off of the tractor. :wallbanging:  I figure it must be for and attachment since it does not show up in the parts manual. 

Can't tell size. Looks to be tiller depth gauge bar

I have come to conclusion the bar is for some attachment and it was bolted to the side of the frame on the front left side. 

 

 

Progress has been slow but with a couple days off of work at one job I have been able to get all the Desert Sunset Tan parts painted, unless I have missed one. 100_0538.JPG . The PO welded on a fender extension on the right hand side. It was welded on so good I decided to just leave as is and just paint and primer with the rest of the fender assembly. The hood was a struggle, there were several dings and dents on the front left that needed hammered out and then filled in with filler. 100_0539.JPG . This weekend I am planning on bolting on most of the panel pieces and the tractor will be looking more like a tractor. 100_0540.JPG 100_0541 (2).JPG There are still several small items to go afterwards; electrical, choke and throttle cables, making gas tank mount, polishing up the chrome trim for the lights and the eagle, and more.

More progress this weekend. Most of the tan sheet metal is back on the tractor. IMG_20171202_080043902_HDR.jpg After this picture I noticed on the hood there were several flaws in the paint and small pockets that were not smooth. The hood was pulled off and more body work done to fix all the issues and it was repainted this am. In the mean time the hydraulic lift valve as hooked up and the grill put back together. IMG_20171203_130441915.jpg

 

I ended up buying a metal polishing set at HF to polish up the eagle and the trim rings for the headlights. IMG_20171203_125211609 (1).jpg

 

The next part is going to me making the gas tank bracket and holder, re-doing the seat, installing the wiring, installing the tiller control valve, and figuring out to mount a fan to the front of the engine.

Slow progress on the tractor due to holidays and now cold weather. I was able to get the seat cushions redone. IMG_20171225_153045215.jpg The back part of the seat I just replaced the wood and foam, reusing the original vinyl. The bottom seat cushion was in real bad shape with nothing left to re-use other than for a pattern. This is the seat cushion after being sewed up and before installing IMG_20171225_133839991.jpg .  I ended up buying enough vinyl that I am going to make another seat cushion for the bottom.

It looks like it is time for an update;

A couple of weeks I went to removed the tie rod ends to replace them since they are both worn out. The parts book shows one side should be left hand thread and the other side right handed thread. Looking at the tie rod both were right hand thread. After getting one of the ends off I went to remove the lock nut and this happened . IMG_20180119_211324782.jpg Time to make a new tie rod. I wanted it to be correct with the left side being left hand thread and right side being right hand thread. It will make it easier to get the toe right. I ended up going on line and ordering a 1/2" left hand fine thread die, I found the right hand die locally. I bought a piece of 1/2 rod to make the new tie rod out. The next issue is finding a 1/2" fine left hand lock nut, with no luck i ended up buying a lug nut and cutting it flush. IMG_20180119_210838227_HDR.jpg IMG_20180119_211118498_HDR.jpg .IMG_20180119_211244332.jpg Here is what the tie rod looks like sitting on  the tractor. I still need to pick up 3 1/2 fine rh nuts to finish it up. IMG_20180119_212304521 (1).jpg

Just for future reference, McMaster-Carr has LH nuts.

I know it have been a few weeks since the last update. The bracket for the gas tank was not with this tractor when it arrived at my house. With some pictures on the internet and parts book and some measurements from Casino Jim I was able to put together a bracket (i had the gas tank). IMG_20180121_102003819.jpg   From when it was being made and checking the fit. IMG_20180217_182023928.jpg After it was painted and installed, I just have to hook up the fuel lines now. The hoses to the cooler were hooked up IMG_20180217_175825107.jpg now i just need to figure out and make the mount for the cooling fan. The connecting bars for the clutch still need to be purchased. IMG_20180211_103051732_HDR.jpg   Today I have been putting on the decals for the tractor. They are from Maple Hunter Decals. IMG_20180224_180113226_HDR.jpg IMG_20180224_180133330.jpg The decals for both of the dash's were a challenge but they are done.  I still need to find the decal for the hydraulic lift. 

 

The next steps are putting oil in the transmission, hooking up all the wiring and then starting it up.

The end is in site on getting this tractor done. Last weekend it was spent trying to find vinyl to make the power-lift decal. I ended up not finding and using white sticker project paper to make the decal. IMG_20180304_075921095_HDR.jpg . Today I started up the engine for the first time and it sounds good. The only issue is the "new" fuel pump I put on was not working, I ended up just bypassing the fuel pump for now. I had issues with getting the tractor to move due to the valve on the fender. Once the valve was turned to the correct place it moves forward and back. A few little odds and ends were finished up and the rest of the decals put on today. The only things left is I have to figure out how to get the new hard plastic handle attached to the forward and reverse lever and order the PTO clutch control arms. The handle I am going to try to drill and tap the plastic and use a set screw to attach it. IMG_20180310_162654988_HDR.jpg IMG_20180310_162641469_HDR.jpg

Spent the day finishing up this case 195. To start with I figured out a way to use the one plastic cooling fan that i bought in a box of auction stuff. I bought a brass bushing that was 1" od and 3/4" id for the fan hub. 100_0553.JPG I used a 1" locking collar to hold the fan on the bushing. 100_0554.JPG To get the right spacing I had some plastic round tubing I had bought online for making the spacers for holding the oil cooler on the tractor. 100_0555.JPG Cut it to length and inserted it inside the brass bushing and then put some 3/4" washers over the plastic so everything is compressed together when it was bolted on to the front of the engine. 100_0559.JPG those are new PTO arms that are black. 

 

The other thing i did was remove the long looped hose off of the back valve and install a couple of hydraulic quick couplers100_0560.JPG I still put a looped hose in there just incase the valve gets moved.
