This tractor had been replumbed at some point with galvanized pipe. All of the old plumbing has been removed . New steel pipe has been used for fuel and water lines. After the wood deck is replaced the gas starting tank will be hooked in as well.

H&J machine has been working on upper valve cage. reamed out original guides for oversize stem valves, and henry is machine out the seat area for a replacement seat with a 2 tiered step.. the reason for this was to minimize the material removed from the seat area.

[QUOTE=lukeste; oil pump is getting new packing and gasket.[/QUOTE] Luke, if that pump impeller is brass, check to make sure it is not loose on the shaft. Some times the key or pin is nearly worn away.

Looks like some really nice wood. I can't stand when people use construction grade lumber for a project like this.

After a week of r and r it was time to get back into the shop. The loose underside of what will be the platform got a linseed treatment. Also set up a circuit to clean and test ignitors. Have a very good bright spark so ignitors are now in. Also got the heads put on. Getting closer now. Hope to get furniture bolted in soon.

Evenings this week were focused toward power washing. 15 gallons of diesel was burned in hot power washer. Close to a 30 gallon can of old oil grease and grime was washed off, looks much brtter. Today was a general finish wash and onto the wood. A lot of time was taken to get holes drilled, counter sinks for rivet heads, and everything squared up. The main runners were done first and fastened down so as to not move. Then basically one plank after another, with the exception of one longer board for the fender gas tank to rest on, and the typical notches needed for fuel fill, steer wheel bracket, etc. Right runner gets busy with a few off sets.

Since we have been on wood working and saw dust everywhere, it was decided to finish off the furniture and do the canopy. We continued with the white oak theme. And will be covered in galvanized tin

Progress continues on the canopy. It got a linseed oil treatment and let dry. Last night I started on the roof, using galvanized tin. Hoping today that we get it mounted. I will feel better after canopy is mounted with rambunctious kids in the shop.

Larsons machine shop went to work on the good set of wheels and gears, i think there were 19 new rivets put into place, and 1 lug reattached. They also dropped on the gears. The wheels do no require maching and bushings for the axle so that was a good time and money saver. Our 2 younger kids view the rumely more like an indoor jungle gym. With gears on the wheels my forklift wasn't feeling up to the task so the big loader got the duty of moving wheels. Won't be too long before they go on tractor

I notice that there are both 8 spoke and 5 spoke gears shown. I need an 8 spoke, 4 lug gear.
Thanks

We put the upper valve cage on first before canopy. My 2 younger boys are doing management today in the shop. It is a bit of a job to get 2 nuts started on rear side of cage toward the middle as they are tucked in pretty tight and has to be drawn down evenly in every way as the valves and guide areas go down into the jugs a ways. Nice to have that piece on, and thanks again to h and j machine for the fine craftsmanship

The canopy went on next and after what felt like an hour of measuring, holes were drilled. Need to get some correct bolts so for now there is just some in to hold it square. It feels real good to get it off the ground.

Thumbs up Re: Rumely E Mechanical Restoration

Good looking work right there, and especially great to see the two little helpers you have there! I've recently been enjoying sharing shop time with my oldest son, makes me feel good to have one that is interested to see what daddy's doing.

What's the little steam engine in the background? Early Nichols-Shepard?

Thanks,
Mike

Because this was converted to spark plugs at some point, much of the advance retard for ignitors was gone. Dean lemer took a couple pieces off of john tysse,s to cast pieces. Dean measured up shaft and went from there. Waiting for parts for this may be the holdup for a spring start, but won't be much left to do. Got .75 cold rolled for shaft and made the attaching lever, that has set screw to anchor it to the shaft. Although not casted it did turn out really well. I am a bit confused as to why rumely switch their carb from left air intake and right advance lever to the opposite orientation.
