  8. Wow you sure went head first on that one !Congrats looking good !
  9. Excellent start please keep posting pictures as you progress !
  10. Plowboy equipment on e bay has them nice zinc coated .I got the eight or so shanked bolts in the nose from bates corp (he probably has them all )if you want original look you want 9/16 head zinc heads (some are 1/2 bronze )Mother case will send you zinc 1/2 inch heads .The rubber washers under them i source local .Looks great BTW !!!!!
  11. I just had New Hydraulics out of Wisconsin make me some fuel lines .I was pleased with the results !
  12. If i remember correctly that side has to come comepletely out shaft and all PTO out to get to Draft sense arm .More than likely bushing is worn which in turn got the o ring.Long story short you will have both sides apart to get to the right side .Perhaps posting in Technical Forum will catch some of the sharper ones on here if not pm me i help you with it .
  13. Not sure about authenticity but this works for me .I use a jam nut under the cover set to cover to level with rubber blocks on top of the battery to clear the posts .Then tighten the wing nut down snug has worked so far for me .
  14. Looks great ! Thank You I ended up with some shielding that is labeled for 2000 Degrees stuck on the side shield similar to factory .I have a blanket like that as well if i see any sign of distortion it will go on as well .Fall pasture clipping or a Plowday only work this one may do .Thank You again !
  15. Thank You one more visit from the Brown Truck should be able to button it up and decal it !
  16. Great thanks meant to fashion something before paint just forgot .Tractor will never work other than maybe plow day or mow co to just play.Thanks again !
  17. Finally showing some progress .Anybody ever try some sort of turbo wrap or shield to protect the side shield paint ?
  18. Finally MCV issues behind us steerable and drivable complete overhaul on engine .First warm run of engine cylinder temps were around 320 on the ends 350 towards the middle of engine .After about hour and half at 1900 temps were around 275 280 on most no dyno around these parts to load it .This sound about right ?Thank You !
  19. No drilling was planning on overfilling to see if we could cover the o ring (that may or may not be bad ) and get them working then drain and repair correctly.
