Love the ole' GMC. Thanks for the pictures. Good idea changing the angle of the exhaust tip, I guess I never realised how much "to the side" it faced before. You've got a beautiful yard there, our grass hasn't even started growing yet & is still mostly brown from over the winter. Have a Happy Easter & stay healthy Austen.

 

Thanks Ken, it's always a pretty time of year when the grass wakes up again. You too, stay strong and be careful.

 

 

Happy Easter to you Austen!

 

I had the same problem with my exhaust on my Cub 149.  fixed it the same way you did.

 

Sweet looking GMC.  You should post more pictures of it.  

 

Horse trailer looks like you cleaned it up.  Did you also do some painting on it?

 

Have you done much to the Dodge?

 

Thanks for the pictures and update.

 

Thanks, Mark! Nice to hear from you. Yeah, it's nice to keep the exhaust off the machine as much as you can.

 

Hoping summer car shows aren't cancelled. Here's a pic from a former car show with one of my vintage reel mowers in the back.

The horse trailer is pretty much the same, I have done some touch ups on it but have not done a total repaint.

 

I've done a lot to the Dodge the past year. I had it repainted and along with several mechanical upgrades. Most recently the atmospheric turbo blew a seal and I had to replace that last month along with a lot of other new seals, gaskets, etc, while it was all apart. Also installed an AFC live, got some new/used Welds on it last week with new 33s. It's been reliable for older diesel truck though and a lot of fun to drive.

Very nice Austen you can see the thoughtful care you put into all your projects that you do!

 

By the way I know I am late but Happy Easter to you, He is Risen! can't believe how green everything is there. :wave:

Hey Rick, it seems you and I have a lot of the same interests! Combining two hobbies together is always a fun thing to do. It looks like you found my earlier thread on the Dodge. I'd like to hear more about your Cummins too.

Thank you for the kind words, Stephen! I hope to see an update on your projects too sometime. :thumbs:  Ha, yes, it's pretty much always green here because of all the rain aside from the lawn that dries up a couple months out of year.

We're getting some nice weather which means more seat time! Finally a chance where the ground is dry enough to use the tiller and not make mud pies all over the place.

 

Fuel line return hose replacement

 

I0QXfya.jpg

I replaced the fuel return hoses that were old and cracking from the outside that are on top of the injectors which feed into the main return line that Kevin replaced.

I first went the auto parts store but they didn't have a good factory-like replacement hose. I then remembered I had some carburetor vent hose I had bought a couple of years ago for a vintage KTM dirt bike project and it turns out it was just what I needed. This stuff is really durable compared to the original material. The photo above shows the comparison of the new vs. old hose.

 

Replaced

I noticed Kevin even replaced the fuel line clamps with new so I following suit using the same style that he did. It's all in the details and it's amazing how far Kevin went with all of this. Thanks again, Kevin.

 

Alright, let's get reunited with this beast. It's been covered up with a sheet the past few years in the back corner of the garage.

Mine attaches a little differently.

The cutout slot for the tiller/implement driveshaft works perfectly!

The engine didn't seem to even notice the tiller was there. Running the tiller at the same time with the loader installed is not the ideal setup with this. This same configuration worked OK with the Johnson loader I had on the 1886 because the pump on that one did not run off the PTO driveshaft like loader pump does on this tractor. For small job this works OK but if I were to till a big garden, I would remove the pump and the front portion of the loader.

You really couldn't have planned out that cutout in the crossmember any better (even if you had all the parts rite there when they built the loader).
It's nice you've had the time & cooperation of the weather to be able to get some things done to it, looking great.👍
We had 3" of snow here this morning 😒

Wow, not just mixed in with rain but accumulation! That's crazy. Is that typical for May?

Spring has sprung! Thanks for the pics, Austen! Good looking machine.
Glad to see that tiller in action again. Curious as to the why and how that tiller got adapted to the 3ph rocker.

Thanks Brian, it's so pretty this time of year here isn't it.

 

The tiller at some point earlier in its life was modified to attach to the 3 point lift arms. It is also the early, single cylinder, style largeframe tiller so the driveshaft was lengthened 2" to be compatible with the 1886 and later style large frames. Do you have have a tiller attachment for yours?

Yep. Still got a tiller for mine. Matter of fact almost every Bolens I've purchased came with a tiller, and I still have 4 of them.
Here's me tilling a new bed for some onions a few weeks ago.
