First fender is nearing completion. At this point it is all bolted together. On Thanksgiving day I will have enough bodies around so we will rivet fender number 1and prep for paint. For thos that may be wondering all of the associated rear fender tin for supplies and bending cost 250 bucks. We used 14 gauge steel which is heavier that it was from the factory. The old fenders where ultimately cut up to lay out to trace the holes. There isn't much left of the old fenders, awfully rotten.

Today after Thanksgiving dinner, we riveted the first fender. Kids got in on some hot rivet action. Dad helped as well

The canopy was in too nice of shape to not reuse. The galvanized tin came off and it had tongue and groove wood which I knew, but it's not laid in a way to let water run off. It was flush with the rafters so I primed the bare wood and will lay ship lap over the other wood and paint red. The other fender is all riveted and ready for paint hopefully this week.

Last night I got the ship lapped boards on and primer laid down. So tonight I was able to lay the red on. Will be happy to get this big piece out of the shop. On the sides I use 1.125 inch overhang. On the ends I used .675 overhang.

At the same time of the 2040 restoration I have been working on this 6 bottom single beam plow. That way in tough conditions I can run 5 plows and 6 plows under normal conditions. It is a pretty cool plow and anxious to get it plowing at some time

Both fenders are done now and looking sharp. For that plow I have been working on fresh casting for machining as well.

Many of the spokes were welded to the rim....more than I thought. So for a couple days not I have been blowing out the rivets and grinding out the welds. Almost have 1 wheel ready for new rivets. I did get a big slug of plow parts ready for the 6 bottom

Why had the spokes been welded? If there is a gap between the "T" head and the rim, it should not be forced closed by bolting tight which would stress the parts. It's better to shim between the "T" head and the rim and then rivet it tight.

The the outer rim side the rivets had corroded and caused the rivets to loosen on wheel side the way it looks. So a previous owner must have had a welder and did what he needed to do to keep it going. I did have 1 spoke that will need a shim in between the foot of the spoke and the rim. All the rest are very tight.

Been working on the other rear wheel which has been a flat out sob. The spokes were welded on the inside and rivets welded on the outside. This has pretty much been a real prick of a wheel. Murphys law made sure I ran out of oxygen on a saturday night the wheel face rivets for combining the ends together will be getting all new rivets too. Th hi s Al's oi had a couple loose ones on the hub. I color coded the spokes... yellow is tight. Green will need a shim.

Isn’t it amazing how many little things matter when you want a tractor to work instead of just run? Good job MSS

One other option to consider Luke, is to remove the hub rivets on a spoke and build up the end where it buts against the hub then fill in the rivet holes and repunch or drill them. The spoke should then wedge in tight.

I got last rivets cut out of the last wheel today. So since that is about it for that at this time, I got back on the gang plow drilling holes in 2 new beams I had made. Bridgeport is new to the shop and is very nice for drilling big holes on these heavy pieces

Focus has been put on the plow as I borrowed an example from crosby to get strap metal figured out.
