I want to say "THANK YOU" to all of you for all the nice comments that you've made during this project.
I have enjoyed sharing it with you and I sure appreciate you taking the time and effort to make comments.

.........................................................................

There are just a few things to finish up yet. ......
The original Shaw walk behind tractor had a brass identification tag on it and I managed to clean it up enough to be able to read it.
Unfortunately, whoever built this into a riding tractor back in the 40's, drilled a hole thru one corner of the tag to mount that plow lift lever on the back.
Here's what the tag looks like now.




The tag reads:

Shaw Manufacturing Company
Du-All Tractors, Power Mowers and Tillage Tools.
Galesburg, Kans USA
Model No - D Catalog No - T 45D-4

I mounted the tag on the frame in front of the clutch pedal.




Before I painted the lift lever, I drilled and threaded the pivot mount for a set screw.
This tightens down on the pivot pin so the pin can't slide out and so the pin itself pivots in the mounting brackets.




The twp pins for holding the rake from rotating now have little chains on them so they won't get lost.




Here is a photo of one of the dust caps on the wheels.




The tractor is all finished and I drove it out to take some photos.










Here are some photos of the rake.

Any way you could thread a piece of rubber through the forks on the rake to make the rake into a pull-behind snow grader?
I'm sure I could but I can't think of any reason why I would want to.
I have a 50 inch wide snowblower to take care of snow removal.

All my tractors get played with some and get driven around at the tractor shows but they will never see any hard use again as long as I own then.
