Taking the pets for a walk--maybe?:text-lol:

hitching your horse in the garage at night so it doesn't decide  to go out for the night--

:ROTF:

 

PO installed stuff can be very interesting for sure...

 

Aldon--in all sincerity, you did/do a fantastic job and this thread will be reference for us when we restore Blackbeard.  Thanks for paving the way:greetings-clappingyellow:

I could see where it would be handy if you were roping off something that needed to be taken off and on quickly. Of course a d ring could do that also. Must have been a sailer or dock worker:thumbs:

Since I want this thread to be a reference for GT14's in general I figured I'd post my days work in repairing a couple GT14 parking pawls that I'll store for potential needs later. 

 

I think pictures are self explanatory. Weld, clean up and paint.

I modified the blast cabinet and now need longer gloves. It will allow me to swap them from outside the cabinet. I am too stiff and body too wore out to be climbing into a blast cabinet. Even if seldom.

Likely a week from getting cabinet going and still with temps in upper 80's so I continued working on tires and rims.

My local Mavis shop is very customer friendly. I dropped tires, tubes and rims off and picked them up on my way home.
some pics with rear 15 inch tired to show set and reference size wise. Then a couple pics next to GT14 with turfs. It can be seen that the 18x8.5-8 V61 Vredsteins will be adding some stance and attitude:-) or Altitude anyway....as they look like about 1.5 inches taller than turfs. The tractor is actually lifted off ground a bit while Vredsteins are on ground. I mentioned in a another thread how great Miller tire was in dealing with. 

Probably going to pull those front runs next, wet blast, prime, paint and drop by Mavis for another set of fronts for my working GT14. Hopefully I can have the extra set on the tractor by Sunday afternoon. Got to head to Cleveland Friday so part of my week is shot.
