Default Rumely 2040 G Restoration

I was not really planning on restoring my g this winter, but after scoring a piston, I decided to pull the motor off. After pulling the motor the decision was made that she should be cleaned up blasted and made pretty. Sleeve the jugs. Address radiator leaks and whatever else I find on the way. I am planning on this being a 2 year deal with other projects happening at the same time

Wow, what a beautiful sight! A shop full of tractors. And my favorites, Rumely and John Deere. Have fun on the G! Chris.

I concur. Nothing beats a shop full of old iron. I'm assuming you're talking about the painted 20-40? What's the deal with the unrestored 20-40 and 16-30?

Yes the older re painted one. The other 2 are in for mechanical restorations. The jd 830 is almost done. Cleaned bores and went through the whole governor system. Some fool played with the rack setting and took beyond where is should be, caused flyweights to go stuck balls out. The 730 is getting close. ... Rebuilt pumps and injectors, that one is factory elec start. Also put one good fender on. Must have blown a tire with chloride and was pretty nasty.

Looks like you could squeeze an "H" JD in there, yet, or, maybe an antique garden tractor.

The first tractor through was the 8210. Got a loader put on it after I traded my other one off. Came in handy too. My forklift was proving too light for the task of lifting off the motor. So we used the 8210 with 3 chain hoists. Better control with the chain hoists. It's a lot of up and down, climbing and looking around to pull level... but went good. Just takes time

Not to steal your thread Lukeste, but while I have the attention of the Rumely people on here. Has anyone had the spur gear housings get loose on the differential gear on any lightwieght Rumelys? All of mine are loose on my 15-25 L. I think the rivets need replaced.

Took the differential gear to our local machine shop and it seems the spur gear housings have worked loose and wore the holes out where they sit down in the center hub. They are going to repair them. I won't use up any more of your thread on here Luke.
