IMO, the 1/8” should be OK, but I would fabricate a C-channel out of it like the original frame rails. Stronger and I think it would look better.

I was wrong.  If I was to extend out much further, I would need bigger.  I'm only going out about 9" so 1/8" is good enough!  Thanks  @Nevadablue.

Started on my little extension out the front.  Tacked the braces before burning it in.  Welds under are terrible but will hold just fine.  Need to work on my non-flat welding.  

Dirty Rat - Sears - Page 4 Img_3310

I did feel that I somewhat redeemed myself welding up the front plate for the extenstions.

Dirty Rat - Sears - Page 4 Img_3311

cleaned up.

Dirty Rat - Sears - Page 4 Img_3312

Now I need to clean up the axle hanger so I can weld it in so I can have a roller again.  Then I need to plan out the bell-crank.  I didn't plan on that earlier.  Hope that works out ok.

Craftsman Colormatic 230 amp AC Arc welder

Pic from a couple years ago.

Dirty Rat - Sears - Page 4 09301711


couple current shots.  I have it set halfway between 1/8 and 3/16 steel.  I was welding some 1/8 to 3/16 and that made sense and seemed to work as planned.  The black dot is my dialed in spot for 1/8 metal.

There she sits!  I accidentally hung the axle bracket backwards.  It'll be fine..  LOL

Dirty Rat - Sears - Page 4 Img_3315

I ended up splitting the difference with 5 inches.  Worked well for the bell crank.

I will be cleaning up the front so it does not look like a couple angle pieces sticking out.

If you are going to go with the angle like that, methinks you should add gussets for looks and strength.

it's a little nerve racking committing to modifications sometimes ! But you just have to jump in and do it and hope it turns out like you see it in your vision.

That's where this huge piece of steel comes into play!

I got half my heim joints today.  The left handers!  Right handers are due tomorrow weather depending.

Dirty Rat - Sears - Page 4 Img_3316

Good thing I am changing these out.  The ball joints are about to fall out on the silver rod.

No updates past 2 days and don't expect any for a couple more.  

Here's the scene outside the MightyRaze Garage.

Dirty Rat - Sears - Page 4 Backya10

Not too much, but not bad for Oklahoma.  6-8 inches with some 1'-1'4" drifts in the yard.  Over by the interstate a few miles away in the open are some 5-6 foot drifts.

Yeah, I could still work, but I have the outside dogs hunkered down in the Garage.  I don't want to grind and weld with animals in there.  Easier to just put it on pause.  Hard to believe it was 74 degrees a couple days ago.

Thanks guys.  I slammed it down a few times.  I added some more weld, and I finished my side gusseting to the steering bracket.  She's solid.

I do the same thing too every time I weld something, I drop it on the floor, perhaps beat it a little with a hammer, whatever to test the weld Smile

Yeah, I could still work, but I have the outside dogs hunkered down in the Garage.  I don't want to grind and weld with animals in there. 

Well, sad day.  Nothing done.  I will say, I no longer have a hold-up in the garage.  Our grandma dog whom we have expected to pass on for about a month now finally passed this morning.  She was having a hard time this morning walking to the door to go out.  I picked her up to help her out and she passed in my arms.  It's all good, she was an old dog.  She was gotten to be an inside dog, but she was having none of that.  She loved outside.  I know as she got old, she hated being brought in when cold.  Sometimes she would be stubborn to come in.

Back on topic:

I'm kind of struggling where I am going to go now with the Dirty Rat.   I've been moving along pretty well with the build.  I'll get the tie rods back on along with the new steering rod.  With the heims, I expect near zero slop in the steering.  Then I guess it is time to put the engine back on to arrange final belt alignment and purchase the belt.  As long as the gov doesn't screw me over on taxes and I get my bonus from work next month.  I could be done with the tractor by April sometime.  I need to look at this thing and see where I would like to take this thing from here.

Sorry to hear that, it's never easy when a pet passes on, they are part of the family!

Well if you get done that quickly it either gives you time to keep figuring out more to do to it or maybe even a second entry!?

That front section on your frame that you welded up looks really cool! Nice deal!

I almost missed the blue text. My screen is dark, and now so is the mood. I’m so sorry. Losing a friend hurts. Tractors don’t matter today. Sad

Really sorry to hear of your loss.
We lost our cat in 2020, a cat we had since a kitten she was 20 years old.
We do so much for our furry friends, buy their food, pay for their medical, get them toys and lots of love and somehow they seem to give us more than we put in.
