Thanks!

I kept at 'er for a bit after the update as well, hoping I could get it sitting on the leaves without the C-clamps.

What I ended up doing was modify a couple of trailer axle clamps so they would clamp down flat on the leaf springs:

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190835

Worked quite well! I just had to drill a couple holes in the big piece of angle up front and use a steel strap underneath for each clamp. It holds the leaves very well, but I have to gusset the piece of angle up front as there's quite a bit of flex there.

But regardless of that, I'm very pleased to say she's fully sprung!!!

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190833

I'm really happy with the way the front end turned out, should be a sweet setup!

Let me know what ya think!

Well thanks Mighty! I sure try, haha.

Anyway, I knocked the exhaust off the list of things to do. I had it on at one point but it wouldn't fit with the wishbone mounts.

All I had to do was change the pipe coming off the engine and clamp 'er back on:

Good to go! I had to cut a tiny bit out of the grille as you can see, but that's no big deal.

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190838

Cut a nice angle at the end of it:

She's looking pretty sharp these days if you ask me!

Gonna work on getting the rear rims painted and the final tires installed this week, be nice to have that knocked out.

Would be a good candidate to run a old metal tractor seat, I was thinking of doing it on mine possibly..

I think it looks very rod rod name worthy, Good work! How does the front end do so far on a cruise?

Yeah that'd probably look pretty cool! I'll have to see if I can find something.

Thank you! The steering isn't done so there hasn't been any test driving yet. Shouldn't be long now though!

Haha, no video of it yet.

One more thing off the list, got the rear wheels ready to go on:

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190849

They didn't turn out as good as I would've liked, but they're not too bad I suppose.

Should stil look pretty cool.

Call it the banshee..  LOL

Who needs 3rd, but you can have screaming fast when you may need it.  Love the side profile.


Also, boy the birds like to poop on it.

Yeah, 3rd is for getting to the Mexican border before the Canadian law can catch him for smuggling suspension. AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 1098998679

Hold it right there, those birds have obviously worked very hard at that. Besides, it gives it a very distinctive look lol!

Bit of progress today.. Got me a proper 1/2" belt to replace the one that was slipping:

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190856

Completely cured the slippage, but unfortunately the belt would not clutch at all. Turned out all I had to do was add a retainer on the clutch idler so it would pull the belt in:

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190857

Works flawlessly!! No slippage, and perfect clutch action!

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190858

After that I made up the little gussets for the piece of angle steel at the front of the frame:

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190859

Welded them in place then I tore the front end apart a bit to fine tune all the suspension geometry in.

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190860

I did it once before but I wanted to do it again after I got the leaves mounted and drove it around a bit. It tuned in quite good after a lot of adjusting, all the measurments checked out and on the quick test run I did in 2nd it handled just fine. Didn't even need both hands on the wheel, haha.

Then it sorta took a different turn when I got the GPS out to get a speed reading for you crazy buggers. I shifted 'er into the next gear and after I let the clutch out we came to a rather abrupt stop.

Yep, froze up the pinion shaft:

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190861

Haha, whoops. I had the oil extra full to hopefully keep that from happening but I guess it didn't work. I do know that some of these 600's had a lower pinion bushing instead of a bearing, so if this is one of those that might've been the problem.

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190862

It'd not a huge deal, I have a replacement 600 that I can throw in so tonight I'll start tearing into it tonight and check everything out before sealing it up.

Anyway, here she sits for now:

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190863

Only a minor set back, haha. She'll be fixed up in no time!

Thanks, yeah she had a rough go the poor thing, haha

Anyhow I tore the spare 600 down tonight and unfortunately it also has the bushing for the lower portion of the pinion shaft. But since the rest of the trans seems okay I figured I would remove the bushing and replace it with a couple of needle bearings.

Had to assemble a little puller to get the bushing out:

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190864

AK's LT-08 Rat Rod Tractor Build [2019 Build-Off Entry] - Page 11 20190865

Worked good! The bushing is just 5/8" I.D. by 7/8" I.D. I believe,  so it shouldn't be too hard to find a needle bearing to fit.

I'll see what I can find tomorrow!

Haha, yeah it does look neat without the hood and grille.

Anyways, I made out pretty good today. Did some messing around with the pinion shaft and what not, the upper ball bearing seems okay:

So I figured I'd just take the bushing to a local joint and see if they had a couple needle bearings of the same dimensions. I was only able to get one, but that should work fine.

Got it pressed in:

To make up for one missing needle bearing, I decided to add a second ball bearing above the factory one:

Should be plenty sturdy now! I also removed the seal on the other side of the bearing so it can get oil from the trans. I think it should be a reliable setup.

Then I put 'er together with the ol' Permatex and tested all the gears:

Everythings good to go! Hopefully I'll get 'er put back in soon.
