I am pretty sure the diff in my tractor is a semi fluid application, the oil is running out the ends of the axles, they just have tin dust covers, and the diff cover being a big lid with no filler suggests a semi fluid.

 

Got a set of front wheels well under way, just need to drill the holes, I will get photos soon, I got x2 wide 8" rims and cut the sides off and have welded 1/4" centers into them.   

 

They wont fit in my lathe witch is a problem because I need to center drill them for the hole saw to cut the hub hole, I have a plan to center them as best as I can on my record player and hold a pen witch should mark a circle to center punch.

I started to make a new sear from the bottom of an old steel tank or something someone had turned into a blacksmiths forge

This is the seat the tractor has now, someone has welded it on along with all that tube round the diff, I removed all of that and I will wack the seat off today, its very rusty and ferns are growing out of the back.

A bit of cutting and welding and the new seat is fitted, those brackets off the LH side of the diff I will mount my DC arc welder, it can be driven from the sprocket witch ran the rear mower, I will just weld a pulley on,

I fired it up for the 1st time in meany years, it did a huge bang in the exhaust and then ran pretty well, I need to adjust the carb, the ignition switch is not working very well and I have fitted a condenser from a Harley Davidson witch I suspect is old as the hills, its not charging the battery but I put a multi meter on the leads from the stator and turned the engine over and thats putting out power so I hope the reg/rec is the problem.

Glad you got it running! There's always small things to work out when one has set for some time.

Picked up a 16 horse Kohler K series motor the other night, was hoping it would just need a few things done to it but found it has poped the rod through the front of the block, I took the sump off and found the rod cap and come off for some reason then half of the big end was forced through the block, the block should patch up ok with some bronze. the crank is undamaged and everything looks ok so I think a new piston and rod should see this motor running.

Lucky you that the crank is still good. I have one here that needs a crank and probably bored.

I got half my money back on the K341 I will get a U/S rod and O/S piston and get the crank ground and the blocked brazed up and bored but those things can be done another time.

I can find no manuals or info on this tractor at all, I want to find some diagrams of the rear axle, my next job is to strip that and find out how to fix the play in the wheel bearings etc
