I need to do a few odds and ends like brackets and belt guide tabs but the belt guard is almost ready for tear down and paint.

I didn't like the way the belt guard met the fender so I did a little cutting and welding to improve the look and fit. Also welded a mounting plate for the front section to bolt to.

After I modified the rear section belt guard I made a mounting tab that utilizes the existing hole on the transmission mounting plate brace. The hydraulic foot pedal linkage had to be reworked also to clear the front section belt guard. Not much progress to look at but a lot of work and better end results.

It's the seemingly small stuff that takes the most effort and time. Nice!!!

Thanks. It sure is. I measured for all the belts and hoses, that took a couple hours.

"If you don't have the time to do it right, when will you find the time to do it over"?  Good job going on there.  :thumbs:

With the holiday and extremely busy at work I haven't made much progress on the build. I have managed to collect some parts for when I can work on it again.

Hydraulic hoses.

Fuel pump, fuse block, led lights...

Having all the pieces and parts is a necessary task towards completing the project. I get what you mean about work and project focus/time.

 

The good news is the big show is approximately 7 months out now so there is still a chance we will both get out projects ready:-)

At the rate your going you will finish a couple by then. :handgestures-thumbupright:

 I have been thinking I have plenty of time but my wife is having neck surgery next week so I doubt I'll get much time in the shop for the next couple of weeks. My wife is more important than my tractors. If I can't finish it. I'll do what @wallfish said. finish the build and take it as is and paint it later. lol

I can identify with that, between my back two years ago and my wife's shoulder last year I was rather limited on shop time. We are both now healthy (sort of) so I'v been able to make some progress.

I have been able to find a few minutes here and there to play. I cut some sheet metal into the right shape.

My wife had a visitor today so I got a little break from nursing duties. Headlights are welded up and grinding done.

Hope the recovery from surgery is going well, seems we all go through it.    You need to invite lots of visitors so you can get out to the shop more often.   :ychain:
