Thank you Sir!

Over the weekend I was able to get paint back on some of the tin, It is really red, not orangish like it comes out in the pictures. Took the frame back apart to paint the axle and move the transaxle back and down. Wow, I really need to clean my garage!20161127_171827.jpg

Some times directions just change. I changed course too!  I bought a 520-H that needs a motor, and when I look at this there isn't much of my Dad's tractor left, so..... I ordered up some new decals, and a set of solid motor mounts from A1 Miller and I'm putting the 10 back in 105.  I just need a couple warmer days to wrap this up.

Looks Fantastic!!!

 

Good to see one of my C 105's "Cousins" back in the game!

 

Love the grader blade - Can't seem to find one around here for less than a whole tractor!!!

 

Good Job! :bow-blue:

 

Love the Black Hoods! :ph34r:

You've really done a nice job on the C105, I really like the way it looks with those tires on it.  :handgestures-thumbup:

Thanks Jim,  Funny thing is that grader came from Kingston, Mi.  I looked long and hard for one, paid too much for that one, then shortly after one pops up local....

8 Months later, not much changed. I have a really short attention span and bounce from project to project. Dusting this one back off.

I didn't like the sight screw set up on the oil tank. So... I opened up the hole for a 3/4"npt weld on bung for a sight glass.....

So I opened up the hole with a big unibit, in hind sight I should have looked inside.. Because there is a tube from the return to keep the fluid from foaming.

That tank is part of a (Ark 550) Wheel horse 97-40FL01 loader.  Figured I'd try and document some of the stuff I find out as we go.

There are 3 sizes of pins in my loader 3/4x2.5" at both sets of rams to the boom assembly,  3/4x3" at both ends of boom assembly, and 3/4x2.75 at the other end of all 4 rams. I bought pins from zoro and drilled them for grease fittings.  The loader pivot points are in great shape as they all are pinned. Mine had roll pins pounded in them, but they will have torsion pins when it goes back together.

I need to make a frame for this, Old one was butchered terribly.

Yesterday I was able to rebuild the basic sub frame, easy except that I wanted to re use the front brackets that had some UGLY torch cuts that required patching. I put it under the tractor today to get the spacing right and tack in the cross member that the uprights sit in.  It sits level, but the tractor still has a rake cause I wasn't as smart as @Aldon to drop the front axle mounts.  I have another set of 520 spindles I was going to modify, but at this point I think I'll just live with it.
