That 4sp tranny should be a SM465, used for many years by Chevy and GMC. A version (CH465) with a bigger input shaft was used in the larger trucks with a 13" clutch.

I took some time out to work on the Lombard cross pole sleighs and today I got back on my second Linn Tractor. I built the skis out of scrap metal 20 years ago but never made the mounting pieces so today I did that. now we are ready to haul the sleighs after we toss the motor in the Linn Tractor, lol

Koo, on the skis, do you use a single or double rib for steering?

the Phoenix wood skis used a concave shoe for steering.

when I built the skis 20 years ago, I made a single ski rod an inch wide by and inch high which was way too much. I found this out on Linn 1 because I made both sets of skis for both Linns at the same time. i'll cut the ski rods down to be about 1/4 of an inch high and will wear nicely for steering and traction to turn.

I forgot I had the plywood pattern that I used to make the linn tractor front skis on the deck of the house-office. that is 20 years old and in good shape.

we finally got some snow but the wind blew it all over the place. today we moved the td-9 known as Free Fall in to the shop to be worked on. I snapped a picture of the Linn #2 and the td-9 known as Bad Business with the sleighs.

we have the cold weather but not enough snow to move the sleighs. any snow we had the wind blew of the dirt in the open areas. so my sleighs are stuck up by the shop till is snows. today I used the td-9 known as Bad Business to back the welding sleigh around the corner so I can weld on Linn 2 in the morning.

well things are not going to plan and of course the lack of snow makes it harder too. Linn 2 should have been in the shop by now getting worked on but today at -16c I popped on the winter front then splashed the paint on. after 20 years of painting the Linn 2 with used oil to save the wood, it will take a while for the black paint to dry or freeze dry, lol.

of course the splashed on paint on the hood and plywood side panels did not dry completely overnight in the heated shop. but they got tossed on Linn Tractor #2 on a grey overcast day that makes all the pictures not look good. we even splashed some red paint on the back of the cabooses so they show up in the pictures better when we film or if we film. my daughter xena with the heater blowing on her for warmth was able to touch up paint the KoO on the welding sleigh. for some reason things fade like my memory after 15 years or more. now we just need some snow.

Most crawler tractors after a life of hard work suffer from under carrage wear. do not the Linns suffer the same or does the snow and ice lubricate the chain and help keep the wear down

the under carriage on both linns are in excellent shape because they were used on packed trails. the snow and ice lubes the tracks pretty good. I soak them down with used oil in the summer.

after 6 weeks of waiting for snow which never came, we had to move the Linn Tractor and the Lombard Cross Pole Sleighs. of course it was a warm and grey over cast day which is terrible for pictures. but these will do until we can better ones when it snows.

today we used the Twin known as Kijiji to pull the Linn Tractor ahead with the Lombard Cross Pole sleighs. then we got the Green Toy out to lift the Linn up to trim up the ski rods. it was +2c today in the Kingdom so what snow we had was melting.
