This tractor had been replumbed at some point with galvanized pipe. All of the old plumbing has been removed . New steel pipe has been used for fuel and water lines. After the wood deck is replaced the gas starting tank will be hooked in as well.

H&J machine has been working on upper valve cage. reamed out original guides for oversize stem valves, and henry is machine out the seat area for a replacement seat with a 2 tiered step.. the reason for this was to minimize the material removed from the seat area.

H&J has been making very good progress. 1 valve is finished, and the seats are in. a few pics of the multi step process, and a final report card.

[QUOTE=lukeste; oil pump is getting new packing and gasket.[/QUOTE] Luke, if that pump impeller is brass, check to make sure it is not loose on the shaft. Some times the key or pin is nearly worn away.

Looks like some really nice wood. I can't stand when people use construction grade lumber for a project like this.

After a week of r and r it was time to get back into the shop. The loose underside of what will be the platform got a linseed treatment. Also set up a circuit to clean and test ignitors. Have a very good bright spark so ignitors are now in. Also got the heads put on. Getting closer now. Hope to get furniture bolted in soon.

Evenings this week were focused toward power washing. 15 gallons of diesel was burned in hot power washer. Close to a 30 gallon can of old oil grease and grime was washed off, looks much brtter. Today was a general finish wash and onto the wood. A lot of time was taken to get holes drilled, counter sinks for rivet heads, and everything squared up. The main runners were done first and fastened down so as to not move. Then basically one plank after another, with the exception of one longer board for the fender gas tank to rest on, and the typical notches needed for fuel fill, steer wheel bracket, etc. Right runner gets busy with a few off sets.
