  1. My mom has a really cool 2018 chevy cruze diesel that has a manual transmission. Not the fastest way of getting around but fun and really efficient. It gets 35-40 mpg in town. It will also pull any gear you put it in.
  2. I have made a ton of progress in the past couple of days. I am ready to pull the engine and start rebuilding it. I have been slowly working on the other small parts that need repairs or rebuilding. One of the small parts i started working on is the exhaust manifold elbow. It is cracked and missing a pretty good size chunck on the bottom of it. I plan to TIG braze it back together. When i was pulling all radiator and water pump i relized that it has a brand new radiator and a brand new water pump. Once we got the head off i saw almost every water port plugged solid. Im almost sure that overheating was one of the reasons it was retired. When i first got it running it knocked real bad. It turns out that pistons 1, 2, and 4 have really worn wristpins. It will be interesting what the inside looks like. Thanks to everyone who has been helping me with my fender situation. Josh
  3. Tony, i am doing this project with the restoration program but not with my school. It will be just me working on the tractor. The tractor restoration program is pretty good and i am glad to be a part of it. BTW this one is going to be way better than mel's
  4. I knew the rear wheel weights were sorta rare but i didn't expect that. The tractor is being restored in a antique tractor restoration competition and we have a time constraint so i have to get some fenders soon... although i will continue to search for the original style. Thanks for the info.
  5. I figured that. I am expecting to do a lot of fabrication on this one. Thanks. Josh
  6. Picked this one up recently. Runs pretty good for sitting in a field for 20 plus years. Because I am going to restore this one i am in need of the full skins. It has the brackets and hinges for all the sheet metal but Im pretty sure im never gonna find them and i think ill probably end up converting it into a os4 with the standard clamshell fenders. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions i would love to hear them. Josh
  7. That's some neat looking equipment.
  8. Hopefully next year my td6 will be in there
  9. We just pulled all 4 injectors and found that small brass particles were falling out of the inlet side of the number 4 injector.
