A little early on the pic with Red.  Turns out it is not as big as I was thinking.  It is still big! Man I need to get steering completed.





I'm really diggin the blue!

The blue does look good out in the sun.  Interesting how different these tractors are yet their hoods are almost identical.

Here ya go @AllisKidD21 I said I would show a couple pix. The gear side if I was thinking would have been the side I put a pin, but I ended up welding it, but I had to be careful dirty and quick as to not melt the bushing.

Hey Hey Hey!!!  Look what is attached!!!




Steering works great!  Just one thing.  I need to change my steering rod from a ball joint to a heim.  There is a little play and it is the ball joints.


Core is done at this point. Now I need to work on...


  • engine pulley
  • bumper
  • wench wiring
  • bumper lights
  • tether kill
  • some more decals
  • need dust caps and the washer to hold them on for front wheels.
  • belt
  • build a battery cover
  • lock down the battery
  • charge battery
  • maybe some more stuff...

It is WAAAYYY more solid than that rag joint.  I did cut the 5/8 rod the gear is on into a square so it fit in the socket before welding.

It does work pretty good.

I like the chrome piece on the steering column. Good to see that the steering worked out. What are you thinking for a battery cover?

I have an old dryer lid or an old 50's lateral cabinet doors.  I was planing on cutting one of those up and bending it into the shape of what is missing.  Question is.  Can I do it?  I do not know, but I am going to give it a try!


This is what is needed.




now to find some cardboard to make a template.

Not too bad of a sheet metal part to make from one piece.  I would carefully measure the shape I'd want. Make one from cardboard like you said is a good idea so you can see if you're happy with the shape or not.  You just have to design in some tabs into the sheetmetal layout that you can fold over and allow you to rivet the sides of the piece to the top of it.  Were you planning on welding it instead?

In the photo of the stock one, it's bolted on to the side.  Do you plan to do that Mighty?

I have not thought of riveting the part together.  I may look into that as an option.

I did score some goodies while visiting my parents this evening.  I may just have to try one of them out? Smile
