Good job. Kinda gives you a good feeling to have a success or two now and then.
Since retirement, the things I miss most are the holidays!

DANG! That looks great, Ken! Did you sandblast the rims or did you use a wire wheel? Did you fill the pits with body filler or was it mainly the primer/paint that looks so smooth?

Mike, that was sand blasted like crazy - in the box, out of the box - check it, mark spots back in the box (repeat 5-6 times or more). The smoothness is really the primer, paint and lighting. I'm pleased with the outcome. Thanks for the comments.

Have a great day, Ken

Thanks - If I had not purchased that Sand Blasting Cabinet - I'd have been living at Cecil's house to get all this done. Those wheels did not blast easy. For the next tractor I will have a bigger electrolysis tank, then use the sand blaster.

It's like Majic if you work at it. :thanx:

Bolster Repair 1/4-20 to 10-24 Original Size

Postby PVF1799 » Fri Jul 26, 2013 6:56 pm

At some point someone drilled out the 10-24 hole in my bolster and made it 1/4-20. I could have left it at that but no - I had to fix it. Using advise from this forum I did the following with totally successful results.

1. I ordered bottoming taps
2. I ordered a package of No. 20 drill bits for 10-24 thread size in steel.
3. I used a 1/4 carriage bolt and drilled out the center with the No. 20 drill bit. Just used my drill press, holding the bolt in Vise Grips. Failed first attempt - Nailed the second attempt.
4. I put loctite on the bolt, screwed it into the 1/4-20 hole and cut it off.
5. I tapped it out to 10-24. :thanx: To those of you who guided me down this path.

It came out about 1/32" low - but I'll take it.

That bolster has never been off the tractor since we got it in 1965 and to my knowledge it's never been repaired. Interested to know what you're seeing.

Thanks for posting, Ken

Nope no welds on this bolster, just oil and grease - this part has not been fully cleaned yet.
