  1. Just a word of advice if you have never done this before. There is no need to remove the woodruff key after removing the drive gear so if it doesn't come out easy don't worry about it.
  2. A few more.
  3. Still need to pick up some silly putty to check the head clearances but did manage to rebuild the governor with Dad this weekend.
  4. Great information! I'll check this out before the head gets torqued down and report back as soon as I can. Thank you for the insight hillman!
  5. Thanks for the tip! I'll check it out.
  6. No the head is not on the motor as of yet, the weather has not been cooperating real well the last few weekends. To the best of my knowledge there should not be any clearance issues as the distillate motor was mid size chamber being slightly larger than the gas but not as large as the kerosene. Now, having said that, this is my first IH engine build so I could be full of beans too so take it with a grain of salt until I can report back with some firm data and run time. So stay tuned. Oh, and if any one reading this has that firm data please feel free to share, I hate doing things twice.
  7. Picked up the rims and tires today. Thank you Miller Tire!
  8. The dollars are a real drag but as you may have seen in the pictures, it just has to get done. I've waited over 30 years now to start this project and whats a few more grand any ways. LOL! Honestly though, I didn't think the cost was all that bad compared to what you fellas must have to give for those 'big' tractor tires. Really makes ya respect anyone who goes all the way and puts all new tires all the way around some of these big 4x4's .
  9. Tires, tubes and rims ordered. OUCH!
  10. Finally got a few lifter pictures. Can't wait to see these in the motor!
  11. Lifters are done and are being shipped back from grinding! Hope to have them for this weekend but I'm not holding my breathe.
  12. Lifters are on there way to Effingham Regrind. Should have everything to finish the motor when they get back.
  13. Found the missing wheel, the old spoke side has got to go. Wish I had the steel complete but I don't so this is what it's going to be replaced with. A buddy of mine has a bad key in his H and is buying the other. One set found and two tractors fixed.
  14. There ALWAYS over budget! LOL! Looking good and should look fantastic.
  15. Wow! That's in really good shape and a great starting point. Can't wait to see the finished product.
