Thanks mog5858, I truly couldn't have done it with out the help I've gotten from everyone one at ACMOC.
I haven't even been able to do anything on my tractor for a couple of weeks. We have some rain in the forecast so I'm going to try to get some work done this weekend

Well I finally got some time with my Cat.
Painted the hood and side engine panels. Sorry neil haven't been able to get the measurements on the side panels I just haven't had time.
I got the dash and pony motor gas tank installed. There's not many stray parts laying around the shop anymore. Hopefully I can get everything done and get a good test run in soon.

You guys do amazing things, I only wish I had the talent. I do well driving em but no so hot on the restoration end, beyond my ability and I know it. Keep up the great work! If you run out of things to work on, have a D4 5T and a D4C(1965) that need a few "things" fixed. Thank you for sharing.

Scott, did you make up new pony fuel lines? If so, did you use steel or copper?

Cheers,

Gary, Super looking tractor! Nice! Neil, I make my new lines out of copper, easy to work with no rust.

Thank you for the very generous offer cause I hate to run out of things to do. However I have a 2t, 5t, 7u and a d2 that need a few things fixed.
So I'll have to pass for now.

Yes I replaced the line on the pony fuel tank. I used copper,  it was the easiest line to make on the whole tractor.

I got a little more done on the d2. I put the dash and gauges, the pony gas tank, and the throttle linkage on and got a really good test run. Everything seems to be working good and the main engine is starting to run cleaner.
I was surprised how fast the weld on the track rails is leveling off.
