Recommended Posts

Hello,

Been a while since last update 8/27/11, So, I thought I would stay in touch.

Its slowed a bit ,lot of repairs to make and also lot of painting prep. do to the fact it set so long (out side) , lot of pitting to smooth over and the painting is time consuming piece by piece.Also a little thing called harvest is taking some time :lol:

We have bolster done, front axles done , hydraulic valves been re -o ringed and needed repairs, steering colunm been rebushed,all painted and being installed.

Currently working on paint prep of front rims, fuel tank, tank support, and beginning fast hitch parts.

Here are a few pictures. Tony

Thanks for taking time to post the pics. Your tractor is looking great.

Hope harvest is going well.

We had MAJOR, breakdown with our combine yesterday.

Bearing out, and casting broke on planetary drive end.

Smelled something hot, could not figure it out. Later on spotted smoke coming from behind the drive wheels.

Planetary was hot and I noticed the dual wheels were leaning toward the machine.

Worked on it till about midnight, last night.

Leaving for dealer early to see what our options are for fixing this, and renting a machine for a few days.

Looking good!

I love pics and seeing other people work.

Besides the color the JD sticker is a giveaway.

I just got a new compressor from Eaton Compressor (Polar Air) I made sure not to get it in JD colors.
