That is the same color on mine with a dark oxblood red wheels, I really like it better than lighter.

Today I blasted another handful of parts and got ready. Eli helped paint the high temp black.

All 3 small heavyweights used the Bosch DU2 didn't they? Some had a manual impulse, while others had the auto impulse coupling.

du2 is correct, and that is what this one has on it. however, the du4,2 is a better mag for the application.

What would a person do with a broken exhaust pipe close to the head on the right side ?

The fenders are quite rotten, so they got all torn apart. Will make all new fenders with original angle iron. Because this tractor had been painted with a latex paint, great care is being taken to sandblast every part down to white metal. The left fender had a home made took box which was well made, that will go back onto the new fender.
In an unrelated topic but related, rollag will be hosting rumely expo 2022..

Sand blasting over the weekend. Plan for cab corners and fenders is to paint them disassembled, then hot rivet, and then scuff and paint as an assembled unit. That way the covered surfaces all have good paint in between overlaps.
