Looks great. You're just a little ahead of me. I just finished rebuilding my final drives. I'll do the tranny next and put them back together. I just posted a message asking for the correct bolt and nut size to attach the finals to the tranny etc. Any ideas?

Donny,

Yer makin' me jealous now.
My engine looks just like yours except no paint yet, just bare metal. I put the pistons back in last nite with new rings and bearings. I have the left hand final drive apart, need new brake bands, (IH $81.00Cdn.!!) and a couple seals. I think the outer seal on that final was leaking and should be replaced. These little tractors are small enough, you can take them right apart and prepare and paint each piece as you go.

Nice job for sure.
Just Do It !

Donny, looks fanatstic! I am fighting the front pulley as we speak.
How did you get the oil pressure valve off without breaking it?
I have been spraying with kroil but cannot budge it. There's nothing
to put a wrench on.

Ken,

Do you mean the oil pressure gauge or the oil pressure regulator?

If you still have the original gauge, there are 2 small holes in the back that were used to turn it. The tool was a pin wrench similiar to what is supplied with many hand held grinders for changing the wheel. If you are creative you can make one of your own.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Ken:

My Oil Pressure guage is no longer on the block. I removed it with a wrench - 7/16" I think. It is now mounted in the dash where I can see it better. I like it a lot. Oh, had to get a different guage - same style, but I think it came from an H. Not exactly correct, but efficient nonetheless. I had to custom bend some brake cable for the tubing though.

The guage came out really easy. I think mine had a brass fitting on it if I remember correctly. A strap wrench may work if you are careful.

Rudi had the answer to the question:

How did you get the oil pressure valve off without breaking it?

I used a strap wrench.
