Haven't posted much of my projects on here lately. Here are a few. Spent part of last year rehabbing this AC 916H. Swapped some better tinwork onto it and repainted 2/3 of the mid-frame. Still needs some tuning and the BGB could use to be resealed. 

 

Before:

During:

After:

Plowed 1/4 of an acre.

Also have been working on this 3410 Hydro. 

 

Before:

During:

Was rough and non-running. Had bought for the tiller. Swapped on better rims, hood and fender from a 7013 Baron, Dash from a 3410S, and deck from a 5010.  Put a new carb on it. Surfaced the head. New crank seal, rebuilt the starter-generator. Too much to mention. Removed the leaky Vickers Hydro and will repair the worn pump housing with bushings per service bulletin.

Have also started working on two B-207s. Got the rougher looking one running. The prettier one runs on carb cleaner but should be ready to run when things dry up enough to work again.

Leaky Vickers..... Service bulletin.... Explain. I have a Vickers unit out of a different brand, wondering if it would apply to this one? I'd like to fix it for a spare

I'll try to get these scanned and post as a PDF to the manuals section. 

 

The pintle shaft rotating within the housing from normal use leads to wear in the cast-iron resulting in an oil leak. There was not originally a bushing installed but that is the proper repair.

Glad your having some progress. They look good.
With all this rain we're having your freshly plowed field looks good.

Been occupied this winter for sure.  I have one close to being done but cold weather changed my plans.  Don't like turning wrenches when it is 30° F or below in non heated building.  Looks like you have enough invested in plastic tarps to put up a good permanent shelter. :poke:  Keep up the good work.

Less than $100 a year for tarps but thats still too much $$$.
