Jpswift1. That's going to look sharp.

 

Thanks.  So will yours.  I'm glad to see we're on the same page with our color choice.  Every Steiner I've ever seen is red, so our machines done up in yellow paint will be a nice change of pace.  I can't wait to see how yours turns out.  Please continue to keep us updated on it.

 

The Tuscan sun is about the closest match to 73-77 Sears Suburban Aztec gold

 

I didn't even realize it matched the Sears Suburban.......I actually found another member on this site doing his vintage Allis Chalmers with Tuscan Sun Rustoleum.

Well got the 1st coat of paint on it. One more then the black trim and decals. Suppose to be high of 40s for next week so have to wait for it to warm back up.
In the meantime I'm on the hunt for category 0 three point parts. Lift arms, top link and main arms if anybody out there can help. I've found a couple online but wow they're expensive for no more than it is. The local farm store has weld in swivel eyes for cat 0 and a couple pins but that's about it for cat 0.

First off, hats off to you, reeferdoctor!  Your Steiner looks great!  I LOVE the yellow paint and there's no doubt in my mind that I'm going to do mine the same way now.  Thanks for giving me a good visual......my crude MS Paint version didn't really cut it. 

 

Next, I think I can help you out with the 3 point hitch assembly.  I have a 3 point on the Steiner 420 that I bought and it doesn't look all that complex to replicate.  I can gladly get you some measurements and dimensions.

 

In the meantime, here's a couple links for you.

 

You'll need 6 of these, which the cheapest I've found is here:

Next, you'll need a top link.  You can make the seller an offer for $10 and they'll accept it.

Thank you jpswift1 for taking the time to reply and post the links! I'm not sure I have a way to cut holes big enough for the swivels. I might be able to cut them at work on lunch if I can get it Ok'd first. If so I'll get to ordering.
Ha your MS paint pic is what took away any doubt it would look good for me.
It was a little warmer today so I got the 2nd coat of yellow on. I hope to get the black accent stripe painted this weekend.
Can't wait to get the plow on it and put it to work and see what the ol girl will do. Now it just needs to warm up!

Well got it up and going. Used it to level out some dirt for my garden and then tilled it up. This thing is a lot of fun to run.

Thanks. I think it was a tractor 3 point blade my brother in law dug it up next to his chicken shed lol. I cut it down to fit my needs. It's pretty stout. I doubt I'll ever bend it.

How does the Steiner perform when moving dirt?  I've heard some people talk highly of them, but they're obviously not a really big tractor.  Do they push and cut into the earth well?

It's a whole lot better than using a wheel barrow and a shovel.:) This one seems to cut in really good but like I said I made the blade. I think it weighs 150 to 175lbs and It's 52 inches wide. It would shove a blade full of dirt with ease.

My only complaint is the front hydraulics seem to be really fast. Hard to do Final grade with it. Thinking about looking in to how to slow it down a bit. I don't know if I can put a restriction orifice in line for the valve if that would slow it down or not.
