Put in about 6 hours today and feel i got alot done. got the engine slid forward and bolted down, finished up rad connections, put on external oil lines, cleaned out tranny case and installed top cover with shifter. Set the hood and tank up there to see how it looks.....lol

This has a cast iron oil pan, and only 1 ive ever seen. All i can say is i was nervous it wasn't going to clear the ball/socket mount for the spindle wishbone. not alot of room there.

for the short folks i took a pic of the hood so they can see its a correct early flat hood.......lol

Working on 2 F30 canes in the shop this winter. Front one is a 'low wheel' cane and the back one is a 'high wheel' cane. The high wheels used a spindle extension that bolts tot he axle making it talle

Pretty much all finished up. Took best of show in the non restored category at the NE Missouri Threshers show.

She made it to her first show. Went up to Cedar Valley threshers just outside Charles City Iowa on saturday. She definately had alot of lookers! Still have to finish fenders and mount lights along wit

Worked a little bit the last couple days. started off with lug removal from a set of 42 inch wheels to put them on the 66's for the big cane.

Took 2 widetread drawbars to make the narrow one for the big cane. 66 inch steel and 42 inch rubber tire canes had longer drawbars to make sure they went out back past the edge of the tire. extended the length then narrowed it down

She made it to her first show. Went up to Cedar Valley threshers just outside Charles City Iowa on saturday. She definately had alot of lookers! Still have to finish fenders and mount lights along with a little more paint stripping in places. Next show will be in Shelbina Mo in two weeks and the Little cane will be finished by then. The manifold had to get swapped out because theres an internal air leak on it and we just cant get it to run right.
