I love it when a plan comes together says the A team dude! Did you use that material under the motor that work donated to the cause? It really does work good for a mounting pad.

changed all of the shaft seals on the transmission

How do you always seem to get away with just seals? I saved a bit of the rust dust in case you wanted to be a real bro and snort some like I had to do off the wire wheel! Had brown boogers for a week!

This is where I stand but just getting baby steps done. Life keeps getting in the way.

After you put it back together, this time use gear lube, instead of water, and you won't have that condition again.  :laughing-rolling:

Bolted it right down to the frame. Figured it was good enough for the Pond's, good enough for me.:thumbs2:

The cables mentioned 

Black choke + Throttle cables with Metal knobs Fit Willys CJ2A CJ3A CJ3B jeep | eBay 

 

I am going to try and cover them with a small piece of black shrink wrap if it pans out cover the whole cable. 

I'll have to put up a post of the original amp meter I am going to use.

Thanks for posting that link Jim.:handgestures-thumbupright:

 

I covered my cables with braided wire loom, then put a short piece of shrink wrap on the ends to cap it off. I left the loom back a ways where the cable goes over the exhaust figuring that it might melt in that area. It turned out looking very good. I'll get some close ups later today.

As promised, here are some picture of how the cables look with braided wire loom on them.

Last night I installed my new sediment bulb then left it sit over night so that anaerobic sealant that I used on the threads would have a chance to set up.

 

I thought that tonight would be a good night to install a battery and see if the ole girl would come back to life. Before installing the battery I added a little bling to it, I think that the old school decal from Terry is a nice touch for an older tractor.

IMG_20210422_162952127.jpg.e4d99325062885e5020ea5debd7e6c9b.jpg

 

After installing the battery, adding a little gasoline to the tank, and working the primer pump a few times. I'm happy to say that it fired right up.:greetings-clappingyellow: Then it was time to take her out topless for a cruise,:auto-swerve:I'm happy to report that it ran and drove beautifully. Sorry no pictures, I'll get you guys some glammer shots when she has her top on.:lol:

 

Oh ya, @pullstart might get a kick out of this. Some "Jack Wagon" got a little carried away with the never seize when he was putting the exhaust together.:hide: Spent a good 30min cleaning that mess up after I ran the engine,:lol:

Fantastic project and job well done all around!  That was a fun read.  Looking forward to the finished pics! 

 

The post with the "only had to do one trip to the hardware store" had me laughing.  When I leave my local Ace I usually say "see you in 20!"

I work hard to deserve the bad mouthing. 

You and Dan need to communicate more often.:angry-tappingfoot: I think I could have figured out how to toss the 15 in with the 10. It doesn't have the swing the 10 has though. I checked all three out for continuity and that was good so I'm assuming they work fine. Let me know if you need it Jim. :)

Thanks Bob But I don't think I will as if it's shot it will be there just to fill a hole and match some other special patina items I have for her. Kinda like a frame off resto but not. :)

Does anyone have a picture of the correct location for these decals? @Lane Ranger?

My Hein Werner hy2 unit obstructs the decal location on dash tower.  I believe they are both on dash tower in front of shifter.
