Sorry, end caps are red. At least they are on my two radiators. I'm going to paint my radiator. Maybe I will use rattle cans instead of real paint so it is a really thin coat??? Should help paint transfer.
I am probably going to use MS Crossfire on my 9. I have seen some that are awesome with Valspar Restoration Series so I am not too worried about Crossfire.
Don't weld on the rim with the tire on it! You will blow up. There was a video on the RPM forum last week. I never knew that but it makes sense according to the ideal gas law. Plus your tube will be junk. I bought a set of irons and a bead breaker with a neighbor so I take tires on and off quite a bit.
Sometimes my money disappears in a hurry because I just HAVE to have the silver cloth recovered seat rather than the cheapo red and white one. There goes an extra $20 on top of $125.
Glen owns or manages (I don't remember) a paint shop "near" me. I was asking what a ballpark price on them painting a tractor would be. He said the last M they did was $3500. It was kind of an off topic conversation.
My names actually Scott. sflem849 was my student id name when I was in college. You can use that at trivia someday. :lol: I figured making a list of what I needed for parts and labor was just as good as doing something. It might keep me from forgetting stuff. My dealer also runs a 10% off sale once a year in spring. I figured I better get my dealer only stuff now to get my free 10%.
If you couldn't tell, I am a little "Type A" sometimes. I am going to bore out and put bushings in the clutch and brake pedals. They sell or my machine shop will make a new shaft that they pivot on. Also my throttle and decompression system is getting pretty sloppy. Like where the throttle pivots on the bottom of the steering shaft and where the little 90* bends in the rods go through the linkages. The worn spots on the rod will get built up with weld and then dressed down smooth. The holes will get bored out and bushed. Follow?
I left all my bolts dirty for now because I don't have a heated shop so they wouldn't get painted right away.
I was just kidding the other day. I also didn't have time to scan the pages of the manual in the computer. Send me an email and I could email you a copy of the pages. You really should buy the operators and service manuals. There is A LOT of stuff you need in there.
Here is a an example of a shaft that needs attention to take the slop out.
My classy shop.
