They are 6" rims off a wheel barrow.


I meant the ones on the front axle that you took off. I need 18X8.5x8 rims.
Thanks

I worked 8 1/2 hours on it today. Most of the time was sandblasting parts. I got everything sand blasted and primed. I worked on putting the vari speed control back together and mounted the front wheels on the spindle. I did a lot of measuring and bending and cutting getting the steering link right. I started working on the 3 point hitch. I made the lift shaft bearing holders and figured out how to hook the lower lift arms up. That will be a lot of work but should look clean when I am done. Tomorrow I will get some more parts so I can continue on it. I am on schedule and moving right alongPB130058.jpg

I didn't do much the last 2 nights. I have been having shoulder problems so today I went to the Doc and he gave me a shot with a big long nasty needle in my shoulder. It is pretty sore. I did get most of the parts rounded up to make my 3 point hitch so that will be my next part of the projectPB150061.jpg

PB170065.jpg I worked on it for about an hour tonight. I got the first lower lift arm bracket made and part of the other side done. This weekend I hope to have all the 3 point done. I hope!

I worked on the 3 point again tonight. I got both lower arm mounts made and bolted on. I welded the ball ends to one end of the lower lift arms and put them in the brackets. I started to figure out the upper lift arms but decided that was better left for morning when my brain is fresh. This will take some figuring out. I feel like I am not getting as much done but it takes time to invent as you go along.

Looking good, Dan. Just keep plugging along, you'll get there. I usually mess up when I get in a hurry to finish.
