Well At least without them balance Gear's you don't have to worry about that engine going KaBoom! 

 

That's true. Of the pre 318 300 series tractors only the 300 and a few early 316's have the balance gears.

A little tip on installing the fender deck that you may want to try is to remove the rear rims and tires. I know this take a little more time but is so much less easier.  Also  I run two or three layers of painters tape on the pedistal ( console) to help it from getting scatched up. It still helps to have another person help too and make sure that you have the dept control bolt and hydro release bolts turned down as far as they can go. Just my 2 cent that might make the job go a little smoother.

 

Travis you are doing a great job on this 120.  I have been watching your progress and can not wait to see you get it finished so you will be able to enjoy it.

The surging problem is resolved.  Changed the filter and it still surged.  Turns out one of the release valves was stuck slightly open.  Messed with it a bit tonight and the problem is gone.  I need to readjust the hydro cam since it now has a slight bit of creep but that is nothing to worry about.  Much relief to know it was something to small.  Time to do the final install on the fender pan and hunt for a temporary seat until the Hapco reproductions are ready.  

 

For reference, I will post a video of the surge problem.

Ran to the local Napa and picked up Duplicolor spray on bed line.  I am going to use it on the foot rests on the fender pan.  I will take some pics as I go.  If time allows I hope to do it tonight.

Finally got the fender pan done!  By no means perfect but great for a worker.  :smilewink:

That 120 looks so fine, that I would be afraid to use it and maybe scratch it. Really Great Job!!!

Thanks!  Pics hide the many small flaws.  I cannot wait to use it after all of this work.  The new carb and the Pointslayer are the best additions so far.

Release valve was stuck open and it became unstuck when I messed with it.  All is good now.

So I realized I forgot to install the carriage bold that is used to adjust tension on the hydro level when I reassembled the pedestal.  I spent 20 minutes trying to get that thing installed without removing the battery mounting tray.  Bolt = 0  Travis = 1  

 

Installed the fender pan bolts and  painted the 317 front bumper and bolts so it is ready for the left side hydraulic lines when I get them installed.  I might install the original 120 piece since it is already painted.  While I was under it on the creeper installing the carriage bolt I greased the steering box and the center pivot that connects the steering box to the drag link.  It steers even easier than before.  Once I add a spinner it will one easy to drive machine. :D
