Ive seen people take old heavy equipment tires and cut them tofit between the cleats and bolt them down. I also saw one where a guy removed all the cleats and took old tracror tires and cut the sidewalls out and bolted them to the wheels

Its currently in the stat below.
Made some stands for it yesterday so need to do something for the front end. Continue with the rubbing down and then get some primer and paint on it.

Question I have is. What should be the actual position of the rear axles? As you can see my left one is turned slightly so need to get them in an equal position.

I usually put them toward the rear. You see some facing up but it really doesnt matter with F style housings.
I would suggest putting the front axe back on and support it with Jack stands on each side out toward tell spindles. A little safer.

As mentioned I am going to make some stands for the front. Going through the trunnion and using a trunnion pin.

I cant put the front axle on as I will miss the inside of the front casing when spraying and the axle will be sprayed separately.

Like an idiot I had not thought of looking in the manual for the correct orientation. From what I can see they point straight back or slightly down (whatever the bolts allow I guess).

A quick update. She is coming along now. New valve guide and valve fitted. The valve guide was a bugger to remove and snapped in half.
I hope I do not have to do too many of them. There is a little play in some of the other valves but I will replace as and when I need too

Back to metal on the actual tractor almost but have bit the bullet and got a sand blaster as grinding with wire wheel just was not taking it all off.

I am awaiting for my newly reconditioned recoiled and re insulated stator to come back along with my very weak magnets now trying to pull the moon closer to arrive in the mail. The nice fresh flywheel is looking good too.

I can then put the 2 halves back together ready for sand blasting and then it will be paint time.

Dreading paint time but also looking forward to reassembly.

Be careful with the sandblasting, the sand crawls through the smallest openings isnside the castings and will be the worst enemy for all the mechanical moving things and can destroy the engine.
Do you get all new coils for the flywheel? Where do you get them?

I agree with Butch about the Jenga Blocks on the rear and a jack stand on the front as quite scary. Its starting to come along nicely but the hard parts are still to come. Keep up with the pictures and words because many of us want to share your trip without getting dirty. Thanks Ed B

The newly wound and insulated stator has arrived looking super clean and sharp.
New magnets strong enough to pull those gps satellites closer.

Its now time to look at what manifold to order

Next up that can be done is putting the 2 halves back together, a sandblast and paint time.

OK so who was going to tell me I need to strip the block back down to get the flywheel off or were you all waiting for me to make that mistake?
For some reason I though I could unbolt them from the outside.

Anyway all swapped over and back as a whole.

On the flywheel there was a hole and a line. The line and hole were in a different place on the other flywheel. I checked all the manuals I could find and could not see anywhere that suggested the flywheel had to go on a certain way?
