When I pulled the drive pulley off the transmission, the back side of the pulley was caked with grease.
The input shaft doesn't have any kind of shaft seal on it.

Posted Image


I'm going to make this oil seal to fit on the drive shaft using this piece of aluminum.

Posted Image


One side of the aluminum is bored out so the seal will press into it.

Posted Image


The other side gets a bronze bushing pressed in it to keep the seal centered on the shaft.

Posted Image


The new seal is fastened onto the end of the transmission with a section of hard rubber hose.

Posted Image



These are the motor mounts.
They are notched on each end so they can slide into the frame rails.

Posted Image


The first motor mount is being squared up with the transmission drive shaft.

Posted Image


Both mounts are welded to the inside of the frame rails.

Posted Image


Here's the engine mounted in place.

Neat seal idea! It's looking good with the engine up there.

Whats the big wisconsin?

The tag is missing so I don't know for sure but I think it is an AEN, AENL or AENLD.
If it is, then it is a 8 or 9 HP engine.

When I got the engine I thought it was an AEH like the one on my Agricat crawler.
This engine it the same height and shape as the AEH but the carb and exhaust are on the opposite side as the AEH.
There was an AENLD on ebay and it looks exactly the same as this engine.
I don't know how to tell what the engine is without a tag on it.

I'm going to still use the Ford model-T steering column that was on it.
They had the end of the steering shaft connected directly to one of the front spindles.
This made the steering rather quick and it would be easy to have the steering wheel jerked out of your hands if the front tires hit a rock or a rut.

So I'm thinking of fastening the model-T steering shaft to a small steering box.
This should make it easier to steer.

I need some help ...

I'm looking for a seat spring sort of like this.
It needs to be about 4 inch high.
I haven't had any luck finding one that high on ebay yet.

If you have one for sale, please send a photo to my email at:

Thanks

How about a riser? I have 2 MH tractors that were apparently owned by taller individuals at one time. They put a piece of steel 1.5" thick under the seat spring, raising it up where it's more comfy. Maybe a solution if you can't find one a full 4"

Ray, my GTV/16 has one close to that tall. It will be later before I can get a measurement for you.
