Your smaller thumbnail pics are ones that you "upload" as attachments and count towards the size limit we have here on this site. This option is selected below under "attachments".

The larger scale pics are HTML hosted pics from your Imageshack account. Those don't count towards the size limit, as they are not hosted on ACMOC. These pics are "linked" by using the icon above which looks like a globe and has a bicycle link in the second row of icons above.

Keep up the inspiring work!


Fixed it. I added the img and brackets command.

You have to have the right tools to make the job easier as we all know. I got lucky with the Torque Multiplier from a surplus store for; I think around $75.00
That thing sure makes tight bolts come loose easy but I have found in the past that you can break bolts and sockets easy:lol:

OK it's time to dust off this thread and do some work on the grader. This week I decided to order the square head bolts I need. I also decided that I'll be painting this machine Grey. I picked some paint up from Walmart and Lowes to compare shades. Well, neither spray was close to the proper shade. I took one of my Terracer models down to the Sherwin Williams paint store and took the Fed ID# too. They had the number on their color chart. I had a gallon of gloss mixed and it looks very nice. I'm not sure if this paint is what should be used on this but it's not too expensive: $51.89 per gallon.



Here are the spray can tests. There's a dab of the proper color on the right casting


Looking over the salvaged nuts and bolts. I'm not sure if I can find the heavy lock washers though

side-seat,
That is the same paint I am using or at least the same family from Sherwin-Williams. The rep told me for the money it will be hard to beat. I tried it without the hardner and found out real quick the hardner is worth the extra money. Dries very fast for an alkyd paint.

Have a good evening...Bill

While replying to the 33 grader scarifier parts needed, I thought I would refresh this old post. Still no new work on this machine. Running my business 7 days a week and not much time.
Would like to though.The space it takes up in my shop could be used for laying out more jobs.

If it will help you out I'll take off from work for a week and come up there and haul it out of your shop for you to free you up some more space...:dance:
Very Nice Job so far! Thank You for all the pictures. That helps a lot, one of these days I can reference back here for pointers for my autopatrol.
Keep up the good work, I'm used to long term projects too.

This project has been on hold for quite some time. We decided to get moving on it again.
This past Labor Day I dragged the tractor out of the woods where it's been sitting for the last 10 1/2 years.
