I'll do my best Chris! My day off tomorrow, so plan to try to get a lot done. There's way more to be done than some may realize.
And Wednesday, I take my 85yr old Dad to Louisville for hip replacement. He still put in a full day's work most days, so this spring could either mean he can do more, or maybe way less. I likely won't have nearly the spare time that I've had up to this point. That's one reason I'm getting as much done now as I can.

Daniel this is one nice project you have going on. I for one love the Kubota motors. I have one of the first
Kubota tractors sold around hear. It's a mid 60s L210 never been overhauled and still runs like a champ.
Chris if your looking for a belt driven water pump I may have what you need. I picked up a flat head ford V8
A while ago that was used as an inboard motor for a boat has a pair of bronze water pumps for pulling the
Lake water into the motor. I have no use for them so if your interested let me know and I'll snap a couple pics
For you. Can't wait for the next installment in this build. Just love this stuff!!!

Truckman:
I have sent you an E-mail. Thanks for the offer!
Daniel:
I hope your Fathers surgery goes well. I have visited with people who were very happy with their new hips. Make sure he follows through with his physical therapy. The hardest part for you is going to be convincing him to give things time to heal. It's hard to hold a good man down.
Enjoy your day off.

Daniel, I'm amazed at how quickly this is unfolding! Looks like it will be a sweet ride.

If at first you don't succeed...grab a bigger hammer!

All I have accomplished today is the driveshaft stub assembly. Had the lathe belt come apart, so had to patch lace it up enough to finish turning the diameter of the plate to 3 1/2". The stub mounts to the flywheel bolts, then comes out over 2" before it clears the rear of the flywheel to where I can mount the double pulley for rear PTO, then the driveshaft slips on. This leaves the shaft kind of "out there". With all the pull of the belts I'm kinda worried about stressing the shaft. So I will lathe out a steel plate that will exactly fit to the rear of the flywheel, where normally a pressure plate would fit. I will turn it exactly 8 1/2", so that it will fit perfectly into the recess, then mark & drill the mount holes. The center will be machined out to exactly 1" to fit the shaft snug, plus I will weld a 1" bearing lock collar to the back of the plate for more support surface area. This will handle the side load of the shaft fine.
I am not machinist by any stretch of the word, but I get by....most of the time! LOL

Here are pics while building the adapter stub assembly. It's all welded up & trued now, as once welded, I chucked it back in the lathe & faced both sides of the plate. I figured the weld would have deformed things more, but took very little off the faces to true them. No finished pic....camera batteries dumped on me before I finished. I machined the plate's center hole for a .003 interference fit with the shaft, so once pressed in, it would be true.

Hi Daniel. Have you had an opportunity to look at this project anymore?
I know you've been up to your ears in alligators but I thought there just might be a chance you would sneak out there for a couple of minutes. Or has your other breakdown got you tied up?

Not had a chance to even look at it since last Saturday. Taking a day off tomorrow, so may tinker with it some. Could take it for a test drive if Fastenal would ever get the longer bolts I need to bolt the adapter to the flywheel. Been 10 days & no bolts yet!

It might be time to see if the order ever actually got placed or not. In the past I have had excellent service from Fastenal but you never know.
Enjoy your day off!

Yes Chris, I stopped by there Thursday while getting Mom's prescription. The smaller bolts came in, but the main flywheel bolts are still in transit.
I did tinker with it a little today, plus I did some last Saturday that I haven't posted pics of here yet. Will try to do an update tonight or tomorrow. I did decide on a name for this tractor when finished......"BOSS HOG"!

Last Saturday I decided on my alterations. The fender boxes will go....badly rotted anyway. With the boxes gone, I need to put the battery & fuel tank inside the dash tower where you put your feet in stock trim. Way too tight for feet in there....to be comfortable anyway. So I added floorboards from A Massey MF14, but had to put some extensions on the frame for the floorboards to mount to & bring them out. I used box tubing, heated with torch to form a matching angle to floorboards. My welding plain old sucks, so please look past that. The wire welder didn't react well to the rusty metal, plus I couldn't see what I was doing. My helmet has new lens covers, but everything was a blur.






And here is where the foot control for the hydro will go. Just sitting there for the pic.

I will also be making new wider fenders that will be bent to bolt to the floorboards.
