Hi all progress has been a little slow but I've had a push today on the linkage which is a work in progress might have to change things as I get using it but I've never done one before so it's trial and error . I've been fabricating the top link bracket plate

Hey DJ ... where your hitch is going in the frame brace (don't know a better name)  the brace has two sides about an inch apart.  Is yours going to float in that space on a bolt, or are you using bushings to fill it???   I am making a winch bracket to go in the same place ... haven't figured it out yet!!!

It spelled tyres mate Lol

Oh, do'nt listen to him.  Spell it the way you want.  The U.S.A. is the one responsible for adding the word axed to the dictionary as slang for asked so I do not think we qualify to be a source of criticism over language.  Tires and Tyres is pronounced the same way so no big deal.  It is when the pronunciation changes that throws me.  I just cannot get used to aluminum (aluminium).  I like your pronounciation but just feel too silly saying it so...   :)

 

Nice work on your resto.  I have a D160 I am doing a partial restoration on.  Any chance you could take a snapshot of where your starter relay is mounted?  Mine appears to be in the correct spot but the brake linkage comes into contact with it shorting out the battery.

I do not need a picture of the mounting location for the starter relay after all.  The relay had been replaced with an aftermarket relay and did not fit correctly.

I swapped it out with an NOS one I found and that cleared up the problem.

I ended up moving the mounting holes for it back an inch though to give me clearance for a rod going to a foot pedal I am putting in for forward/reverse control.  I hope to get that wrapped up today and finish working on the loader so I can put this all back together.
