  7. Thanks . . . . .There was a bit of a snaffu in supply when I went to get the front tires, so I settled with the WB fronts - I to was thinking they may slide steer, so was thinking of whipping out some mini chains for the front. As for the rears . . . just a 50% chance of mistake (it was Eye crossing late when they installed) and had not noticed . . . is there really any difference / benefit to turning them backwards ??
  8. Hello. . . All Did not see a similar thread, so I thought this might be a fun / Humorous thread for some creative input While completing a recent restoration on a 1961 Suburban ( my first wheel Horse) I got to thinking . . . . I do that occasionally People Name their Horses - Do you guys name your Wheel Horse's While admiring my restoration this evening . . . . . I decided she needed a name, and "PURDY" The Wheel Horse called to me / came to mind. I included the fished pics and a couple before pictures . . . . Sort of a Cinderella story for Old "Purdy" SOOOOOOO . . . . Lets hear what you named YOUR Wheel Horse and Lets see some pictures If you haven't named your HORSE Maybe it is about dam time ya do, OR if your struggling with a name post up a few pictures and let the users help ya Name it I would Like to now introduce you to "PURDY" my Wheel Horse . . . . . . . . Let the fun begun . . . .
  9. I found some midnight oil time so I stoked up the fire in the garage the other night, and the old girl is purt-neer completed - Still need a couple hole plugs for the dash, and still need to get a safer pulley for the motor output. Proudly displayed the high quality decals from Vinylguy (Thanks Terry) where they belonged, and I decided to Use the cheap Fleabay decals for the plow face and cut the other up for the back. The crappy old little plow came out better then I expected after putting a wear bar on it (never had one before) - I threw in a pic of the lift linkage/ mechanism I made and forgot before. I decided to paint the wear bar on the plow white to accent the wheels - Waddayathink ? So I have a question for all of you . . . . . . . I know people name there horse's - Do you guy's name your wheel horse's? While admiring / marveling in my restoration results this evening. . . . . . I was thinking this old Girls name should be "PURDY" The Wheel Horse Well enough yammering . . . . Here are some more pic's for your viewing enjoyment
  10. Curious if anyone knows the actual volume / amount of gear lube that goes in the rear end - I know the fill process just curious if the actual volume is known ?
  11. I did pick up a new wear bar for the plow blade today, so all that is left is fitting / cutting it then paint it and the lift linkage I forgot the other day and I can get it all out together. I do do need to go get some plugs for the dash holes as well - in hindsight I should have tigged them shut but early on thought I might utilize them
  12. Yea that's a profession that almost guarantees early cancer in life, but these were all old school painters who may or may not have used respirators etc as is standard these days ..... still sucks none the less, as they all died in their 40's
  13. Now thats a way that I did not consider Okay so two for paint sticks no worries the old skins still plenty thick and I have a great sense of humor Been rackng my brain but unfortunately my 3 old painter buddies worthy of doing it are all dead
  14. Good point, but that was one of the issues .... was going good cutting with exacto blades , but went bad fast, so I decided to bag it
