  5. My parents and my sisters family each adopted/rescued these girls this winter. Sisters. Labra-golden-doodles….they think. They’ve each gained about 15pounds. The white one is the new farm dog and the brown one rides shotgun in the veterinarian service truck. So they went from being homeless to gainfully employed as well

  7. Showing off a bit here. This ol' senile duffer took this photo of a Great Falls, Montana plumber's cargo today. I used my computer skills to draw a sloppy black arrow to the valve of this plumber's Prestolite gas cylinder valve in the back of his pickup on the left side, here in Helena. We were stopped at a stop light and he started to pull away, but this iPhone 13 took a pretty good picture, before I had to move. Gary😁

  14. So Gary thinks he's in my will . . . The old ACME and the International Shovel Nose both use Prestolite tanks and they have those gauges on them too. All of those tanks I've seen on antique cars/trucks have the gauge on them. Henry Ford never offered Prestolite tanks on his cars but I've heard that it was common for dealerships to make the conversion from the carbide generators to the Prestolite tank for customers. Along with the 1911 Open Runabout, my 1914 Touring and the Autowagon have carbide generators.

  15. Why is that guy under the car? The Barton house was built in the early 1900's in Cotton Center, Texas, about 60 miles N-NE of Lubbock. When l worked for the local electric CO-OP we helped moved that house from Cotton Center to the Texas Tech Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock. lt was a big job and has interesting stories l could tell sometime. But since you're talking acetylene powered lights.... They hired a big time home restoration company from Dallas to put the house back to it's original new condition. l don't remember what magazine it was in but the head contractor wrote a article about it. He said the hardest part of the restoration was converting the original acetylene lighting to electric and still keep the same fixtures. l wish l could find the article but l haven't so far.

  18. Finally, time for a new update. I have been stuck for a long time due to not having the parts I need. My block has been at the engine shop forever now, waiting for bearings. Sleeves are ready, pistons and rings are ready. Just had to find the bearings, and guess what, I found NOS .020 bearings. Came in today. Ordered them via Justin Weber. Great guy. Now, I hope that the engine can be finished quickly.

  19. Finally here with a new update. Haven't been doing much the last months, have to wait for most parts to arrive. As some of you might have already read, I will have my sleeves custom made, so that means I have to strip the entire block. The machine shop can't make the sleeves without being in the parent bore, because they are too thin walled. Got the crank out as well as camshaft. Both will be grounded. That means I'll need new bearings. Thats the next thing to look out for. Anyways, here are some pics

  21. Worked on the parts block tonight and got a lot done. All the pistons are out and the crankshaft too. 2 pistons look great and 3 sleeves too. The other pistons and sleeve are not usable, but I was lucky because the previous owner of the tractor had 2 good pistons and 1 good sleeve laying around. Also pulled the first sleeve, to see how hard it would be. It turned out to be pretty easy actually. I am planning on swapping the crank, because the one in the parts block is much better. The main bearings seem almost new! Rod bearings are much better too. If the crank is the same, this shouldn't be an issue right? This is the sleeve I can't use anymore. There are chuncks missing from it. The piston is garbage too. These are all the parts I got out tonight

  22. Time for a small update. Haven't been able to do too much because I had school exams over the last month. Got some small things done like putting the transmission cover back on and reconnect the steering. I also took the brakes off to check the bull pinion shaft. Movement is absolutely minimal, barely noticeable. So I will not change it for the time being, but I might do in the future as I'm still not completely confident because of the pictures I saw. I have started on the parts block this week. Cleaned it with the high pressure washer first and took the oil pan off. Block wasn't supposed to be stuck, but it was. Got it loose with a large chunck of wood and a big sledgehammer. One sleeve is completely filled with rust and that piston is shot too it seems. I will try to get all pistons out this week and post some photos too.
