  1. I’ve been sorting out front wheels for Bill and Ben. I wanted to change the little 4 inch to narrow 8 inch, the original front spindles are too short so i fitted C series and they are too long The bearings in the 8 inch wheels are one piece with an 1 inch ID and the Wheelhorse flange bearings are a direct fit . Next job was to cut down the spindles and drill the centre hole deeper and cut a 3/8” thread. All the wheels are now at the sand blasters. .
  2. Thanks for your nice comments lads
  3. Good progress Ian, looking good.
  4. Thanks Ewan, I’m trying to build them on a shoestring using what ive got in stock, some of the parts don’t quite fit so I change them a bit. I’m hoping they will end up something like a 502 or similar.
  5. Thanks Norm, made my arms ache.
  6. I had a friend bend me a couple of seat springs pity he didn’t drill the square holes. so most of my time was spent drilling and filing. I’m going to load some photos back to front to see if they load in the right order. The red spring is the original off my Suburban used as a pattern.
  7. Another Boo-Boo i found that I welded the belt guard tag in the wrong place so i had to cut it off and make another, Its done it again so the first photo is the after and the second photo is the before.
  8. Bill and Ben get some stick, gearstick that is. I did have two but can’t find one only a load of others all the wrong shape so out with the heat and re-bend one. Now they are happy, both have a stick. The one on the left is the original. Why do my photos load in the wrong order ?
  9. Got the new panels all fitted and bolted up tight today and the lift mechanism fitted. One cover I haven’t cleaned as it had a Mountfield ID plate on it from new and still has the shade of red i need to match. I’m pleased with the look and the belt guard fits as well.
  10. That's my idea, won't to make sure ive got all the parts and parts ive remade all fit, once its finished its easy to pull apart and paint it all.
  11. Not much progress this week as I’ve been busy with other stuff but here’s the latest. Ive made the belt guard clips and welded them on, Ive made 2 supports for the deck lift thingy and cleaned a few more bits up. Hopefully all the panels are finished and i can get them fitted on both tractors.
  12. Where’s the photos, you know I can’t read.
  13. What voltage is the multi meter reading on the battery with it running ?
  14. Here’s the photos of progress so far, One tool tray needs welding and the slot for the seat spring but it’s all bent ready, the other thing I noticed the side panels need little tags welded on to secure the belt guard ( bugger ) lucky I hadn’t primered them. I’ve cut the old ones off the old panel. A job for tomorrow if I get time.
