Red

It seemed longer ago, MTF had a lot to do with this, as Red was the prelude to the Hulk II project. If it hadn't been for MTF I wouldn't have been as detailed with the pictures and the Compulsion to post.

The non skid pads came from a local store called "Freds". I have seen the same at Lowes, there are other versions too like corse sand paper. All have an adhesive backing that works fairly good. I did have to re-stick one with regular contact cement.

A quick internet search turned up what I used.

Re: Red

Every time I see you post one of your builds, it reminds me how much I hate talented people.

But seriously, awesome job. When can I drop one of my projects off at your house?

Some of my tractors pics are in the link below, click the picture.

Re: Red

An update on RED, It's been four years now and he is still going strong. A couple updates over the winter.
Replaced the nylon steering bushings with brass
New gasket kit for the engine, replaced the oil slinger while in there
A couple new deck idler pullies
refreshed the paint
added expermential LED head lights (retained the 1156's)
And a MTF member posted about a really cool bumper on sale at sears, a bunch of us made a run on them.

Plenty of seat time for all!

Re: Red

I always enjoy reading post about your tractors. I wish I could take a couple of my tractors and work on them until they looked that good instead of always whoring after the next Craigslist bargain. While the ones I have need work.

I'm re doing my 72 145 now, hope it's complete next month, I blew out the Hydraulic lift pushing gravel this week and have had a really hard time finding one that will fit, Any one know where to find one to fit, You can't buy this one and if you did its going to blow to. I think I have found one, but on the threaded end it takes a 11/16 nut, but only 1/2" across the threaded part,, That is where I am getting confused,what size are the treads according to the measurements I gave,any help please, I do not want to order the wrong one and have to send it back, I do not know why they sideways, Thanks

Re: Red

Nice work. Replacing the nylon with brass was a good way to fix the steering.

It has been holding up well. Several mowings and still no slop in the steering. Feels almost like a go-cart steering and gives confidence while barreling at a mesquete tree at full bore in 6th that I can dodge it with a flick of the wheel and not have to gear down.
