Steve, I think your design could be easily adapted to mount to an engine stand. Maybe you could end up with the best of both worlds that way. My set-up is useless without the engine stand.

I like the engine stand idea. I used my engine stand to hold my fenders when I painted them. It was easy to rotate them to make sure i got good coverage under the fender lip and I stood the out far enough to get both sides. I used a combination of threaded rod, tubing and nuts to secure the rod to a mounting hole and the tubing provided a much smaller contact point than a washer so I was able to cover more metal with paint.

When I painted my hood, is screwed a 4 inch stud into the fuel outlet and then got a lager pipe that would slip over the stud. I hung the hood with conduit through the headlight holes and left it vertical to paint the bottom. Then I slipped the pipe over the stud and rotated the hood up so it was level to paint the top. I had to stand on a short ladder to paint but it worked out well. The was too floppy for prep work, though. I'd be interested to know where you made your solid fastening points to the hood for the engine stand.

Gary,

Now that sounds like a plan.

I am very interested in seeing where this all leads. Very good ideas.

Here are some pics to give folks some ideas on using the engine stand.

Image
here is how I used threaded rod and tubing and nuts to hold the parts. In this case the tubing provided needed strength too.

And wheel centers. I could rotate almost 180 degree using both sides of the stand. not bad.

I did see Gary's hood on the fixture he told you about. This made it so much easier for him to fill in the generator, exhaust,and air breather holes. You cant see any sign of the patches he welded in now that it is painted. I would like to see Steve's fixture adapted to an engine stand also.

Good looking stand.
I would like to make one, but won't without your permission, what say you?

Thanks


Go right ahead Gary I didn't patent it yet :lol: I used a shipping crate from a table saw that my dad purchased a few years ago

I really need to get better about taking pictures of the projects that I work on. For painting fenders, I made a simple mounting board, that both fenders mounted to. It simply lays across a long board, that extends between a pair of saw horses. With that, I can paint the back side of both fenders, flip the whole deal over to paint the front. Painting both sides at the same time eliminates overspray issues. I also made a simple mount for the pan seat, that mounts to a hole drilled in the saw horse, to accomplish the same thing.

I'll dig my fixtures out & get some pics of them, but don't have any loose parts to attach to them currently.

I thought about mentioning the fender painting fixture. I have an extra set of fenders for my 65 low boy. We could mount them for the pictures, it would make it easier to understand how it works.

That would be good. I thought about borrowing a set of George's, but this is much closer. I have my old rusty seat, to hang on that fixture, leaving only the hood. I think a pic of it on the engine stand, would be clear enough to understand how it is used.

I have a complete tractor.... in parts.. that could be used as a step by step "how to" project to show proper use of jigs and painting techniques :D :D :D :D :D Seriously, it is nice to see Steve's and all the other great ideas, Thanks! :{_}:

I'm still trying to figure out why anyone would fill in the air breather hole :shock: :shock: What's up with that :?

Yeah, Rick I'm curious about that too. And I thought this was 1940's Cub. Why would he fill in the exhaust hole. Surely he wouldn't convert to an underslung exhaust would he?

That just doesn't sound correct for a Cub. I sure hope he painted it red when he got done. :?
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Is that an odd odor emanating from the fuel tank??????

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
