He went with FP diesel kit,  Part of the Federal mogul company.   Hopefully it is good.  

Where did he get his kit from?

Might be your neighbor bitty?    It came from Pennsylvania.   I can check when I go to the farm today.  

Probably Jessie at tractor restoration sales. He is having a sale in a few weeks and moving to another location

a little more progress today.   Ran over to my friends house that I had bought service tools from and picked up the rest of the stuff.   Adapters for the IH splitting stands and other misc in the pile.

Front axle pivot holes worn out? I was going to buy a square axle for our 5488 a few years ago, but it needed work, and after talking with Mike Links, said every one he gets, needs work!

There was play in the big pivot bushing and the rear wishbone bushing.  The steering cylinder pivots had some wear also.    The pins will be reused and just get rebushed.    Spindles seemed good.   Normal wear for 7000 hours I guess…

Good time to check it all over, and fix what needs fixing!!
Going to paint it while everything is getting refreshed?

Dang, I know the feeling. Just went through our 1586 mfwd. New constant mesh gear... Chipped a tooth off. Fixed a couple of hydraulic leaks. Tons of fun.... Old man is talking how we should upgrade now to newer tractors. 

Sometimes I think I should upgrade to something newer and then the feeling goes away after I look at something newer and think about working on it. Maybe I shouldn't be nervous but it sure looks complicated!

After you get it fixed up is NOT the time to upgrade lol.

Need to come up with something to push oil through it to prime it.

I just use a drill pump, pulling oil out of the oil pan, feeding it into an oil galley.  Did that with a tractor that sat for a few years, and the 706W after the engine was put back together.  You’ll know it’s working on a 66-88 by flicking the oil filters as you are using the drill pump, you’ll go from an empty tinny sound to the full, thump sound.  
I can take a picture of my setup if you want a reference.

I feel your pain. The former partner was great about dumping a bunch of money in something, using it one season, and wanting to trade it off the next. Yeah great, then we can buy some other P.O.S. and have to dump a bunch of funds  and time into that!

Once I've got things fixed, I like to keep them around and use them!

Tractor is looking good Nate.
