That's a bunch of goodies you have accumulated. That should help in the progress dept.

 

I do need some progress in my life right now.  This project has kept me sane during some of the challenges at the church in the past year.  Getting it done helps me feel like I get something accomplished.  I think I am going to pull the trigger on a heavy duty mule drive cover from a member on WFM and order a new gas cap/gauge, headlight switch, and a spinner from JD.

I know what you mean about other things interfering with projects. I have some I need to get back on. Good luck with it all!

One more parts update - I found a set of 317 hard lines from the  pump to valves on ebay for $25 so I pulled the trigger on them.  Between the 300 rubber lines and the 317 hard lines I should be able to make it work.  Steering wheel was shipped yesterday and USPS said it will be here tomorrow but I expect Friday.  :D  When it gets here I am going to sand, prime and paint it before it goes on.  Not sure it will get cleared or not.

Pics of the h2/3 bumper, h2 levers, and the 300 lines. The steering wheel should be here Friday and the 317 lines by Saturday as they got shipped today!!!   I hope to get a break in the weather for some garage time soon.  Bumper is in great condition and only needs minor straightening before prime and paint.  The levers are in great condition too.  With these parts I will have the necessary stuff to do a H-2 and H-3 conversion.  Time to watch for a 140 h-1 or a 314. 

 

BTW - Izzie is the helper in the picture.  She makes sure all items that enter our house are safe.  :smilewink:

I'm guessing Izzie found them to be safe! You keep collecting parts and you can build one for the parts bin.

The wheel arrived and I opened the package at the church. It looks great to me but I am still waiting for Izzie's approval of the purchase.  She is THE authority on new purchases. :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

At this point I have everything necessary to wrap it up and final reassembly once the 317 lines arrive.  Once these are here and installed it is ready to run!

 

Here is my list of parts still to order or wait for:

 

- Steering wheel center cap

- Mule drive cover from http://www.23hq.com/...989854/original

- Hapcoparts repop seat

- Battery (gotta check on size)

- Front lights (going for LEDs but not urgent)

- Factory headlight switch

- Hour meter (figure I should install one to track use since the refresh.  It will be hid under the hood.)

 

Once the tractor is done I will work on the deck.  :thumbs:

 

P.S. - Might end up with a 314 this weekend.  :D
