Slowly making progress on my stock altered pull tractor. Finishing all the little things now. Fired it up for the first time today.d55cec869c1e19f129b07aa57d79db24.jpg

Pulled my Bolens 1000 out of storage on May 3.... Have bought a TR-10D to put in it. Rebuilding clutch and replacing driveshaft bearings - waiting on the mailman for the parts.
Doing rust removal with a cup brush on all the frame... And today laid trial coat of brown to see how I like the color... Getting things done, in between rains ... I'm an actual shade tree mechanic! I'm working outside with my Bolens sitting on my flatbed utility trailer. My shade tree has my hoist up in the first fork.... Works well 4ab28c2ab8a0411b03e9754bd08bb5a2.jpgbc539f1ca22a8d4ad3d26380a4b73f00.jpg87d03a1beae8219e2e7c5f337cdd43bf.jpg

Here is how the subrames were designed for the pre-1971 tractors. This system would probably interfere with the running boards on newer machines. I have a '69 AC  B-210 with an L-112 loader on it. Make sure the woodruff keys are not worn on where your right hand differential is attached to the axle tube. If it gets slop it can increase the likelihood of cracking the axle tube. Using a loader may put greater stress on the differential and axle tube. 

I have been using it and I do see why you said that the front half and rear half of the tractor bolting together on the BGB was a weak point. Found most of the Bolts loose. I will have to figure out a way to mount the front frame directly to the rear frame incase using the loader is what made the bolts come loose. I have a quick question the hydraulic pump was the original 1974 pump with a 7/16" shaft and it broke today  how do I find out what PSI and GPM I need to replace it? I figured I would go to a 1/2" shaft since I can't find a 7/16" one.

Was using the Kubota all day yesterday and as it was getting late and wanting to get a few more cinder blocks moved I saw the LF tire flat . All right at least it was the tire that was needing air every few days , thinking whatever was the problem was it just got worse . Nope a nail sticking through it ,  dismounted and patched that hole , I couldn't find any other spots without dunking the tube but I was in a hurry , remounted and started to air ip up , and uo and up crap I pinched the tube  :wallbanging:    dismount it again ,  1 spot , NO 2 spots NO 3 spots NO 4 places in a group  :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:   at least one of my large patches covered all .

Finally had a chance to take my MF1655 for a run after sitting for over a week. Low and behold , I think I found my problem with losing prime while sittingh around. The vacuum hose from the engine block to fuel pump was quite loose. Put a hose clamp on it and now gas is right there. She took right off and I did some mowing and clearing brush at thye lower end of our place. Also charges good with the new regulator so very happy. Have a great day and stay safe. Will try to put up some shots of her asap.

Been taking the electric start Craftsman I just bought apart lately, fixing little things that bother me that I don't like. Got the fenders off as there was only 2 blots holding them on instead of 3 on each side, and seat off it so far as I want to repaint the seat bracket because it is red and the rest of the tractor is yellow and white. Also fixed the foot rest pedal because it was loose, I had to find a 2 inch spacer to fit that as well. Pictures to hopefully come soon.

Worked on the  '74 JD 112 w/electric lift. Was having an issue with it not going back down. Thought it might be a solenoid, but found it to be a bad connection at the solenoid. Had to take the battery and tray out to get to the mess. This also has a 30A circuit breaker for each solenoid.

In the pic above, the two solenoids are at the top. The small wire(yellow) that plugs into the front on the LH one was loose fitting and corroded some. Cleaned that up and it works fine.
