THANKS.. Mark.. doin this build was a great challange for me.. I did do a lil guessin on it at times but I always had the 'by God & by golly' thought to come up with 'plan A & plan B'.. sometimes I also had to sleep on it a day or 2..

when I found 2 MF 14's on Craig's list for 250$$.. I had the dream to turn one into a FEL tractor... the diesel engine came later as a gift to me.. from that moment on I had the plan to make a good use of it...

You're welcome! That's why I get paid the big bucks, Whirly!

Actually, I get my reward when guys like you have success with your build. It gives me enormous pleasure to have had a small part in your endeavor. Thank you for the privilege of assisting . . . and not getting my hands dirty in the process!
