    I havn't gotten around to it, knowing my lazy behind I will probably wait for a pad to fall off before I pull the trigger.

    As you requested below are some picks of my pads. Best pointer I have is get the nuts that are had as **** to unscrew as the normal ones I have used require consitent retightning with minimul use.

    Huh what goes in the hole in the battery cover? I have that piece for mine but since it had the hole in it I figured it belonged to a different model of tractor. (By the way great job man!!!)

    I used grade 8 bolts that were 2.5 inches long. Had a large washer in the outside of the pad and lock washer with nut on the grouser. Would recommend you get the special nuts that are hard as **** to remove because I have already lost one bolt and have to retighten the others regularly.

    Got the decals on it and took some pictures with the kids. Also have a question the alternator used to put out 14.5 volts as soon as it spun now it takes a minute to get that high and the longer I run it the lower the voltage it puts out gets till it eventually falls below 12 volts. The belt has some slack in it and when I shut it down the alternator is to hot to touch for even half a second. Any idea whats going on? I spend my time plotting my next project, a 1953 Chevy 6400 that my grandpa has owned for all but 3 years of its life. It spent every night in a shed and hasn't moved in 30 years. Its name is Nellybell and I plan on using her to move the T6 around (I guess I should come up with a name for it...)

    The Bolts them selves are a little bent but the rest of the hosing is good. (the bolts took a bite out of the first fan I tried to mount, hence the reason the new one is infront of the radiator.) Although there is a leak that is coming from the center of the pump, how do I correct that without buying a new one?

    The original water pump was worn out and the fan blades didn't look servicable to me. When I priced a mechanical fan V a electrical there was almost no difference. So I spent the extra couple bucks and got the more efficent electric. My goal for this is to have modern advantages that folks won't know about until they are right up on it. Got all my stuff back from the coaters and as usuall they blew me away with the quality of their work. My wife helped me get the hood mounted as well as runnig the wiring for the headlights. The hood needed some "gental" persuasion but we eventually got it on. I know the grill isn't stock but the ones I had were in pretty bad shap and this was the best my local metal shop could do. The muffler is ceramic coated, this will prevent the stainless from slowly detiorating and keep it looking nice. Lights work great, I need to make a slight change to the front headlights wiring but other than that they are complete. At this point I just need to do small anckle bitter things, find/order decals (anyone have a preferred place to go), mount the engin shroud pannels, battery box made, battery cover made,...... holy crap thats a lot of stuff........

    Can you drop links to what you found I would like to get some "close to factory" plugs but don't want to buy the wrong size.
  15. 1952 I/H T6 Crawler Project

    That would be great, I would happily take them off your hands. The rubber will work so long as you have a drill press. For the holes I deliberetly didn't make the counter sink deep as the bolt will naturaly compress into the rubber as you tighten it. I think I drilled 3/8 of a inch but im not certain. The fan and wiring harness arrived yesterday so I was able to get both bolted on and wired up. Ill post a vidio latter but all I can say for now is Holy Crap that fan moves some serious air I could feal the air flow while standing behind the tractor. I have some more permenant mounting brackets that I will use after I get to the bolt store.
