Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Yeah, I thought so too.
I saw a few videos on back plates so I'll be content to purchase one at a decent price.



The three jaw has it's own back plate, 5 inch but the four jaw, 6 1/4 inch is missing it.
I didn't get most of the "extras" that were supposed to come with the lathe but I'm not going to cry about the missing parts, still think it was a pretty good deal. It will be functional enough for my needs.

Not a HF solar panel, but they would probably work too.
This is one of two I bought on Amazon that I use to keep car batteries topped up. I also bought a couple of charge controllers and made my own solar chargers. They put out about 17 open circuit volts & keep them at 13.5. Two Optima batteries, one in the truck and one in the 99 Tracker.


For the rust bucket I just hooked it straight to the parts, negative to the parts and positive to a piece of sheet metal.
I'm using a hand full of OxiClean mixed with about a gallon of HOT water for the electrolyte.
It actually does a job all by it's self.
I've used it to clean a stainless steel fuel tank from my boat. It had some 7 year old gas inside, no scrubbing involved, just poured it in and let it sit overnight and it was shiny clean. Hot water is needed to get the oxygen release started.

Good deal. 10W with the controller for around $40. not bad. I can see how that would be great for keeping batteries in stuff you don't use daily charged.

Oxyclean and hot water. mmmmmmmmm Ok

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

I've finally finished the glands. The grooving tool and calipers I modified, worked flawlessly. The glands came up pretty much spot on.

I did have to remake the jig as the first one got too thin and was causing me all kinds of problems due to getting distorted by the chuck.

Here are some random pictures. I think they are self explanatory but they just show the machining setup, the seals and the glands finished with a close up to the grooves. I do need to take some pictures with the seals in place.

About the machining setup. I used two indicators. One on the bed ways that would give me the width of the groove and another on the cross slide that would give me the depth of the groove. Once I got everything dialed in for the first gland, it was just a matter of swapping glands around and machined them.

With this finally out of the way, I can do something else on the loader.

You certainly do!


How else are we to make out anything in that big pile of beautiful parts you keep showing us?

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Soooooo, I went out and said, wait a minute, it's mounted, just wobbly.


Then I started spraying it with penetrating oil and tapping on it with different punches and finally cracked that egg open.





After several sprays and thread cleanings, I was able to thread the hub portion all the way on.





I cleaned it up with a Scotch Brite then attached the front section.


Here is how it turned out.






I'd say a half a thou or less.


Here are some of the parts from the rust bucket, they were all completely covered with rust.





Other parts need some more time.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Don get the lathe up and operational. We want to know when we can start ordering parts.
I finally got ever thing fix on the 520-H Wheel Horse a friend gave me a good 48" deck that I cleaned up and painted. Had a problem of the deck lifting by it's self. The lift control lever was sticking in the down position and when hitting a bump it was coming up past center and lifting the deck. I broke the vacuum fuel pump add new gas line and replaced it with an electric. It makes starting a lot easier, turn the switch on let it pump a few times turn it over come up with the choke and right back down and it's running.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Nutty home repair job of the day;

After spending a whole day in town unsuccessfully trying to find an 800mm long diesel injection tube, an item I thought was completely normal, I returned to the workshop.

First I straightened and cut the end off the old one, and drilled a hole in a little bit of mild steel rod;

Then brazed the steel bit to the old tube;

then cut the back end;

Now backed the cut collar into the chuck for the finish 60 degree cone.
As you can see, my tool isn't very sharp, so the finish is a bit rough.

Bent it to suit and my old boat engine is finally ready to send back to Amsterdam.
I pre-bled the injection system and pumped up the oil filter + galleries with an external pump.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

DonF, nice work on the Wheel Horse!!


Did you fix the lift part or does it happen on every bump. . . . . . .


Mark, awesome part as usual. . . . . but where did it end up?
The engine looks great!!!


. . . . . and the answer to Don's question about ordering parts is. . . . . .
just as soon as I can figure out how to make anything!!


The last of the de-rusting for now.
Here is the anode.





as you can see, it did some work.


The last of the parts.







The fifth item from the left, I think it's called a live center, I was surprised to find out that it turns!!


Lastly for today's word of advice.


If you are welding and find yourself noticing an unusual smell such as something is burning,
do not wait until you finish the pass to investigate.
Stop and find out what it is that caught on fire, it might just be a small oily rag
but the concern is what's on top of it.






35 feet of really nice hose now smaller pieces, new 35 footer is on the way.


Speaking of green, my green corner of the world






Usually by this time of the year, it's all brown!!
On the down side, I just had it all cut three weeks ago & it looks to be about a foot tall again!!

Welding fires; many. big fires, small fires.
Welding is fire, don't forget to have a bucket of water handy.
And a waterhose connected.
and a fire extinguisher.
and a phone with the fire department on speed dial!

When a boat is having welding work done on the bottom, we always have someone inside on fire watch.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Yup, my dad was welding on a moving trailer for an 18-wheeler, and it burned pretty good on the inside, which was lined with wood. The moving company was not impressed.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

I got it fixed removed the panel behind the control valve and cleaned the grass and dirt then oiled the control lever with Rem oil. The valve is supposed to self center but was stick when it was lower. When hitting a bump it came back up hard and past center causing it to lift. I still watch it to make sure it self centers when lower the deck.
I sure is nice to have second tractor with 48" deck sitting in the garage gas up and ready to go if I need it.
