I really admire your attention to detail and craftmanship on your 520. You definitely set the bar pretty high with this one. When will the pedal conversion set up be available for purchase? :thumbs: FWIW, I'm willing to pay for one up front. Also, could you provide a link to the HF seat you've used here. :)

Absolutely beautiful job! I'll second that on the pedal conversion! I only see one minor problem w/ them, I have a size 14 foot. Could I use them???

Is that the original parking brake knob? I had to destroy mine to get the sheet metal off and haven't been able to find a replacement. Do you know where I might locate one?

Great job!!!

Hey Wheelbearing, can you confirm that this is the correct contact info for the plater that you used? Looks like they do great work at a great price too.

AMC if you order a batch of nuts and bolts would you consider splitting it to save $$$$$$$$? Let me know.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this thread along with everyone else. You did so much more than restore this tractor. A truly astonishing job. You are a restorer, machinist, fabricator, welder, and who knows what else. Heck, even S.O.I. said it is "amazing". :)

Thanks for the quality entertainment. :thumbs:

Great project. Thanks for posting the photos. The shot of the linkage just might help me get my tractor together. Not a restoration, but switching rear ends. Thanks, dwc

Thru a series of events, the magical muffler is now on my '93 520H that I have had since it was new.

Does this mean I need to wash all the crud off the rest of the 520 and wax it?
