RE:MH 22K Project

You are making very good progress Drew, hope Gary is helping the project along in one way or another!!!
Have you found a front grill to complete your restoration yet?? if not send him across here on a plane to carry one back for you, I heard recently there is one at a place he has visited once and he NEVER thought to carry it home for you, just shows you and your project was at the back of his mind that day or maybe he was just thinking about the Jersey Cream and strawberies for tea.

Hope we see the tractor at Paisley.

Malcolm.

RE:MH 22K Project

Made some more progress over the Memorial Day weekend.  After burning up about 4 angle grinders over the course of this project, I think we are done with the grinding.  The hubs, rims and wheel weights are all ready for yellow paint.  The tin is prepped and ready for primer and red paint.  Hopefully some more assembly will resume.  Sorry no pictures this time.

Malcolm - We still have goals for the Paisely show.  So I hope all goes smoothly from here on out!

RE:MH 22K Project

Keep up the good work Drew, always good to have a deadline and then the job get's done, so we look forward to seeing it at Paisley in about 11 weeks time.

Once you get some paint on I am sure Gary will soon have it all assembled and bolted back together, we look forward to the pictures of "the test run"

RE:MH 22K Project

I will try some pics over here just to see what happens.  The 22K is slowly moving along.  Unfortunately, I had to trade my first born (that would be Drew) for a set of tires!!  Damn they are expensive!!!  Luckily, one of the donor tractors had one new rear tire so that helped a little.  All the yellow is painted tires are on the rims. 

Tractor is about ready for a final coat of paint and then we will be buttoning things up.  We just got the manifold back in house.  The hood is back from having new holes drilled for the second tank and exhaust. (Did you know a gas hood had different hole placements than a keronsene??)  We had to use a donor hood so the exhaust hole had to be filled and moved back about 4 inches. 

Grill is still being pounded on to straighten some.  Generator is out being rebuilt.  Still have some things to do but we are at least putting things on (and off and on and off and on) now!!  I think the hitch bracket has been on and off about five times to reset, get the 3 pt items on, lower the hitch, raise the hitch. $%^&*(

A special little add-on we did was put extensions on the platforms - thank you 3 Pt Bob!!  Great idea for some added space!!

More later.

Gary


Well, the concept is right but the but the website just does not like pics for some reason.  We will continue to work on it!!  Sorry!

RE:MH 22K Project

Well we are successful!  Next stop Paisley.  You will have to come see it in person before I post any more pictures of the completed project.

See you in Ontario.
