Re: The Viking project

I have been thinking about the location of the regulator and solenoid and decided that I do not really like the location that I have them at.
Tomorrow I'm going to relocate them to a less conspicuous spot.

Re: The Viking project

I was going to suggest enclosing them in box if you were going to leave them where they were.

Re: The Viking project

This morning I removed the electrical panel and mounted it onto a piece of angle iron.




The panel is then bolted to the frame under the back of the transmission.




This makes it so it isn't as noticeable and yet is easy to reach.
This might be a good location to keep it even after I convert this to a crawler.




The engine looks much better from the side with just the battery and switch box up on top.




The mounting bracket for the starter/generator came today so I can start to work on getting that mounted in place.

Re: The Viking project

I'm glad you all are enjoying my little project and I appreciate the comments.

.....

Luckily this engine has mounting tabs at the bottom on both sides of the engine.
Maybe these were used to mount a front plow or a sickle mower ?
I'm using the tabs on the left side to bolt a piece of angle iron on.




The mounting bracket for the starter/generator is then bolted onto this piece of angle iron.




And then the starter/generator is fastened in place.




I made a little bracket out of flat steel that bolts to the side of the front valve cover.
The bracket for adjusting the belt tension on the starter/generator is re-shaped and bolted to the bracket on the valve cover.

Re: The Viking project

Thinking a little more about this mounting bracket for the starter/generator and how far the weight is hanging out from the engine and supported just by the two mounting tabs on the engine.
The mount needs to be out this far so that the starter/generator can move correctly for tightening the belt.




I decided that I'm going to add some additional support to the mounting bracket.
First I need to get the tractor up in the air a little so it is easier to work on it.

The little forklift once again comes in handy to lift the tractor up.




With it up on blocks, I can now get under it easier.




What I want to do is make another bracket that will tie into the starter/generator bracket and fasten to the mounting tab on the other side of the engine.
This bracket will need to run in front of the oil pan and come back on either side to bolt to the engine.




Here is the new support bracket that I made out of a piece of angle iron.
The two ends have holes in the top so it can be bolted to the mounting tabs on the engine and the center is cut out to clear the oil pan.
Part of the angle iron is bent around the end and a hole was drilled thru to bolt this end to the starter/generator mounting bracket.




This is how it looks mounted up under the engine.

Really cool build you've got going here jdcrawler. Keep up the good work, and the good posts.

Re: The Viking project

Picked up a V-belt today and got the starter/generator all mounted up.
I should have gotten the electrical cable for it while I was in getting the V-belt but I forgot all about it.
So now I'll have to make another trip in for that.
I used the battery charger and jumped to the starter terminal and it turns the engine over fine.




I was going to replace the cork float with a brass one in the original carburetor, but I don't have my soldering equipment here.
As this is not going to be an original tractor anyway, I decided to use a newer carburetor on it.

This is a new carburetor for an 8HP Briggs and the throttle lever is real short and works up and down.
I need a longer lever that works forward and backward so I'm going to make one using the piece of metal that is to the left of the carb.




I cut a slit in the metal up to the hole in the bottom of the lever.
I bent part of the metal back so the lever would fit over the throttle shaft on the carburetor.
Then I bent that metal back so the metal on the lever is closed all the way around the throttle shaft.
Once this was done, I then drilled out the old hole for the throttle cable and put in a pop rivet.
This makes the new lever fit tight on the throttle shaft.




The throttle lever and choke are mounted on the sides of the tool box.




The mounting bracket for the starter/generator had to be removed so I could add a bracket for the choke cable.
There wasn't enough room between the engine and the tire to get my drill in there.




Here is the carburetor mounted on the engine showing the cable mount for the choke.





The throttle cable runs behind the carburetor and is held by a cable clip that is on the valve cover bolt.

Re: The Viking project

Finished up the wiring today.








Now it's time to see if it will run.
I'm still learning about taking videos so this isn't as instructive as I thought it would be.
When starting the engine, I thought I was getting shots of me operating the throttle and choke levers and turning the key.
As you will see, I didn't get any of that but you can still see it running.

I still need to adjust the idle and the shut-off button on the magneto doesn't work.
Overall I'm very satisfied with the results on this engine.

Thank you all for following along and posting your questions and comments.
I have enjoyed sharing this project with you.

Here is the video.....

Re: The Viking project

Looking good. I don't know if you've considered it, or if it will even be exposed when you're done but I would recommend some sort of shield over the pulleys and belts at the front of the machine so twigs and branches (and inquiring little fingers) don't get caught up in there.

The pulleys and belt will have a guard over them when it is finished.

Re: The Viking project

Looks like I'm done working on this project until I can get a shop set back up and get access to all my parts that are currently in storage.
However, that doesn't keep me from thinking about what I want to do with it and making plans for the future building process.

I don't have the tools at hand that I would need to get the wheels off this and separate the housings for the bull gears but I would sure like to see inside there to help me along on my thinking process.
I have a copy of an exploded view of the transmission and drive gears but it isn't very clear and really doesn't show very much.
So maybe someone here can help me out.

Does anyone have good photos of removing the brakes and separating the drive gear housings ?

Are there bearings on either side of the small drive gear at the top ?

If so, are they sealed bearings or are they open to the inside so they get oiled from the grease running off the small drive gear ?

Is there an oil seal behind the smaller drive gear and the trans-axle housing ?

Is the small drive gear on a spline shaft or a shaft with just a key-way ?

Any information would be appreciated.
