I sure will. She's a good one for sure. I couldn't ask for any better. I got some more goodies today from harbor freight. This gun feels surprisingly good in my hand and doesn't rattle or clank or feel like junk. I took the advice of all you guys on here and bought the $15 gun tonight. I can't wait to use it. I also bought cleaning brushes, extra gun filters, and a regulator. I was extremely happy.

I primed a bunch of little pieces today. Heres the starter. I used the grinder and cup brush on it as well. I taped up the Delco tag. I'll take it back off when its time for clear. I think it will look nice with clear over it

Here's what I got done today. I block sanded my dash tower starting with 320 and then 400 to make sure I got AAAAL the orange peel and gloss leaving it nice and matte for my red :) as for the rest of the parts here, I scotch padded them with red then with the super fine grey one, INCLUDING In between gear teeth and motor fins. Also before I primed them? I used a white rag and wiped them down with mineral spirits until the rag came out clean. It may be a little much but I want to make sure I protect my tractor for years to come plus make it look nice!

Well I didn't use it to spray that. I just sanded and scotch padded today. I used a friends gun for primer.

Should I paint my carb and fuel pump? I don't know if it will mess them up or not. I know I would have to plug up the holes if I did.

Good morning! I painted the fuel pump on my present restore, it seemed to have been painted at the factory. I'm not painting the carb, just shining it up a little. I rebuilt the carb on a d 160 once, it had been painted already, so I painted it again. I don't see what it could possibly hurt, I believe some were painted at the factory and some weren't. I guess it's just a matter of personal preference. Just my observations, I'm sure someone here will know the real answer.

I don't paint either as long as they clean up good. Otherwise, if I do paint them, I use a bright aluminum color that is not affected by gasoline, something like Eastwood Carb Renew.

Just a thought, I like to use flitz metal polish on any unpainted stuff, it really brings out the shine and adds a special touch, especially to brass. You can use a medium soft brush on the hard to reach places. I get those small cheap paint brushes form home depot for this kind of stuff. As I said, just a thought.

Finally got my hood ready for red. It had some dings, the grille was a little bent and it had two holes that I had welded up. Not rust holes. Just two holes. I have no idea how they got there, but I fixed all of it and put some etch primer then a few coats of high-build 2k urethane primer, then wet sanded all with 400. I'm pretty proud of the way it turned out

Here's the battery box after I had a local welding shop weld a new one on. They did a really good job.

      Hi folks Brewster Rob here, was gifted a Cub Cadet LTX 1040 in great shape other then a completely blown 19HP in-famous Kohler Courage SV590, today I acquired a 17HP Pro OHV CV490S in perfect running condition.... so I want to swap the engines. They have identical vertical shafts question is the electrical. The Courage had four wires coming from the engine red/green/white/purple, the Pro has 3 white, 1blk and 1 red.  I also have the alternator and regulator from the blown Courage.... might I be able to swap alternators???  I of course have the old Courage key switch I do NOT have the new engine key switch.........  Need help from the Red Square wizards and PLEASE think about the best result way to go here.... thank you in advance.

      Hello all - I have a 1990 312-8 that recently started being a pain to shift, and eventually it stopped shifting into 1st and reverse and was hard to get into 2nd and 3rd. After looking at some posts on here I discovered the possibility that a loose shifter could cause this problem. My shifter definitely had a lot of play in it so I proceeded to pull the seat, rear plate and shift plate off the tractor so I could get to the area where the shifter goes into the transmission. I removed the shifter, reseated it and got the dog head screw lined up in the shifter donut and was hoping that would fix the issue, but after getting it all reassembled and trying to shift even into 2nd or 3rd the shifter, while not as sloppy, now just turns side to side - taking it back out and inspecting the shifter I have discovered that the pin which holds the donut in place on the shifter has sheered and the donut is now able to free spin on the shaft. Not too much of a problem as I plan on just pressing the old pin out and replacing, however I am concerned that the ball on the end of the shifter seems to be getting pretty flattened off on the left and right sides of the ball. I tried looking up a replacement on Toro and several other parts websites but I can't find one anywhere - I can get the boot, everyone has those, but no shifter. My question is, does anyone know where I might be able to find a new shifter and more important, is a little flattening on the ball anything to worry about? 
       
      Also, with the shifter out, looking down the hole my transmission looks like it's full of mud! Definitely doesn't look like the gear oil I put in it - anyone know what could be causing the transmission gear oil to be sludging up like that?
