Thats cheating you are supposed to resto the old ones! Prolly took me more time to resto then to make new ones. 

 

I did find the SS jamb nuts local but CRS where?!?!? I think ACE in Wautoma??  I used  yer nuts on Cindy's tractor. :lol:If you have to make the hanging bolt for the axle pivot make two.

Mine may need some alterations, the treads are stripped out on my frame.:unsure: Don't think that it is thick enough for a Heli coil, will figure it out though.

 

I'll be happy to make one for you though. What's your pleasure? Stainless, grade 3, grade 5, grade 8, "unobtainium" ?

Can you weld it shut and redrill/thread? There isn't much room on the backside to the steering pivot to do much else. Just enough for a jam nut. 

Just the opposite here the frame threads good the bolt threads gone.

Last weekend was a bit unproductive but I was able to do some catching up this week. All of the small parts got blasted in my cabinet through out the week and the large parts got blasted out side today. All of the bare metal parts are patiently waiting in our spare bedroom until next weekend when paint will fly.

They looked pretty good when I left. There was a little dust that showed up on the belt guard that hopefully I was able to bury.

Is that your shop Dan?  Where does all the stuff go when you paint?  That sheet metal looks flawless!

Paint does look nice. Mind me asking what gun/tip you use and type of paint?

Thanks Kevin,:) This is actually the shop at my Mom's. Between my dad & I there has been many gallons of paint sprayed in this shop over the years.

Here is a link to the paint that I use on all of my tractors. It's a single stage acrylic enamel, I also use their gloss hardener in it.

The gun that I use to spray with is nothing special or expensive. I use the large gun out of this set with the 1.4mm tip. My only complaint with this gun is that the larger aluminum cup that they sell will not fit this gun so I am stuck with the smaller plastic one that comes with it.

"Refreshing your 701"? Isn't that a bit of an understatement? :lol:

I didn't tear the engine or transmission down, so I consider it more of a refresh than a restore.:)

I'm liken those rears Dan I had an eyeball on them for the flame but the X 4 was a killer! Guess I just gotta run those old Pullstart hand me downs on my 701...that's alright my herd is ag heavy anyway! 

 

So anyway here's the ? gents... Dan thinks the front rims should be mounted with the valve stem to the inside which makes sense for stem protection and wheel weights. If that's true all my early sixties tractor are on backwards. Issue with running them to the inside the rim gets pretty close to the spindle arm. .... some pics as I was playing... anyone know which is correct?
