Starter mounted today. Still have to paint and install the throttle and choke linkages
2 volunteers lined up and tracks are going on Thursday.
Have my track press set up and saved an old master pin to assemble the track then push the master through with the press

Tracks all lined up to go on. Track tin installed. I can tell you the correct order to install track tin and upper rollers from trial and error. The upper roller stands have to go on first without the roller or the bottom rollers installed. Then the track tin , then the upper roller. The bottom roller can go on any time after the upper roller stand. The blade mount has to go on last. Trust me I tried every combination a couple of times and that's the only way it can be done. I also installed the new seals in the upper rollers the correct way.
Bryon made new sleeves that hold the equalizer spring in place. .

Well 4 years to the day from tracks off to tracks back on. Very exciting to see my little tractor sitting on the ground again. The tracks went on without a hitch. The press set up worked good and I'm sure it was better than the a hammer.

Got some more parts on and some more turned yellow.
Fuel gauge restored, fuel line installed, blade mounts back on and exhaust manifold on also. I used stove paint on the exhaust manifold and the pony exhaust pipe that I made. I considered painting the air intake with the black stove paint but decided to paint it yellow and let it burn in.
I drug the crankcase guard up to the shop. 
Someone add an extension at some point to protect the winch and its going to need some attention Got some more parts on and some more turned yellow.

Ya know I've been editing my posts because every time I post I get double and triple posts and I'm over it. So if the website wants to post 500 pictures and text then so be it.
I have reported this multiple times

Hi Scott, John's passed it on to IT so they can figure out why it's doing that and hopefully fix it pretty soon. Did you send your gauge away to be restored, and if so, to who? I have a couple I'd like fixed up.

Cheers,

Thanks Neil, its very frustrating to have to keep going back to try and edit out all the multiple items just to have them pop back in.

I just bought the gauge face from the club store. My gauge worked but was just black and couldn't be read. The face came with everything needed including instructions to do the replacement. I just cleaned the needle and sprayed it with white paint. I also cleaned and painted the shell inside and out. The whole job took about half an hour. I have a lube oil pressure gauge to do next.

Ok that sounds good Scott, I'll pick up a couple. I do have the large face gauge from a Twenty-Two that I need to fix up and am unsure what to do about that. I think someone on the forum once mentioned a place that would restore the faces - would like to know who

I passed a gauge on to Bruce P earlier this spring and he mentioned sending it to a gauge shop to get refurbished. Maybe he will chime in or you could contact him to see where he had his done.
