Coming along nicely Daniel. Did you get your other Bush Hog resto done, or is it on hold for paint/parts? Dave P.S. Can you make me a set of 4 decals like you made for my BigTen seat back, but with Allis Chalmers Lawn and Garden below or bent around the AC logo? Absolutly no rush. I want to put them on my trailer fenders front and back. PM/email me when it is convenient. Thanks Dave.

Money can't buy you happiness.
It can however buy you a beer.
And that is close enough.

You'll never hear me complain about someone else's welding unless it breaks and hits me in the head.
Nice Idea with the running boards so you have room for other things. With my projects it seems I'm always having to find a place for the battery. The Wheel Horse had the least room.
Coming along nicely!

Been working on the dash. Cut out a new dash plate yesterday & plasma cut the holes today. All gauges & such mounted up, & will make all connections this afternoon. All comes back out in a year or so for paint, but gotta get a functional tractor first. Also got the radiator shields in place. 55F & climbing here....NICE out, with sun!

Won't be long and we will be hearing a road report. My radiator is scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

Dash work is finished, after running into a snag. The factory engine's wiring had the charge wire hardwired inside the harness to the battery wire, so I could only get a discharge reading from the ammeter. Ran a new wire from the battery to the ammeter, so all works as it should. Took most of the day to do all the dash building/wiring, & undoing then re-routing the capillary tube for the temp gauge. but worth it. The dash panel is chock full, but held all I needed it to & all works perfectly. And I so loved a day of shop time on my hobby instead of a farm job. I also ended up adding the other fuse holder to separate some items.

Not updated in a while, but things are advancing slowly. Been driving her a bit, got the pedal hydro control built & functioning too. Working on the power steering now.

A couple short video clips while I drive it. Shaky, but you can hear from it how little the engine knows when slamming it full speed from a stop.

Wow, the engine is sitting frontwards in the chassis. Am I correct that engine has a displacement of about 1000cc and 23-24 hp. o

That was fun. When you get done you should drive around the Farm and
show us what's what. That way when you talk about things your doing we
would have a better idea of what's going on and where.
I thought you might get done with your project before me but now I'm thinking
it might be close. Installed the B7100 radiator and adjustable fan switch.
Cleaned up the wiring and now starting on the hood.
You have come a long ways in a short time Daniel. I don't know how you do it
with all those irons you have in the fire.

You'll beat me Chris. Soon it will be planting time, haying time, and endless lists of other things. I have tons of things yet to do on the JB. The hood & grill have to be split & widened for the radiator. The hood will remain the same at the rear & taper out about 1/2 to 3/4" wider at the front. 3pt lift arms to build, and will be putting turning brakes on it too, off a JD140 which has the same differential. Then I MUST get the D4-10 resto finished by late summer too.

I don't know how in the world you shut your head off at night with all
this stuff running through your mind. Two projects at a time is about
all I care to take on. I think you were working on a crawler that broke
down earlier. Did you get that finished? Was the D4-10 the other garden tractor
you were working on.?

Chris, there are nights my mind keps me up late! lol Yes, had a lot of things going at the same time, but that's how I work best, with a lot going on....to a point though. When things get too busy, that's when the sleepless night come in. I'm at Cave City, Ky near home now at a dairy meeting. Gotta leave meeting before noon to shoot to a hydraulic shop and then pick up an auger part. I gotta load a semi with corn this afternoon. Requires the bin sweep, which needs a new rubber drive wheel. Once that bin is cleaned, I have to switch the auger to another bin to top off the truck. The hydraulic parts are for the JB's power steering.

Daniel and Chris..On the second page of this thread you were mentioning abouta Externsldriven water pump..I havent seen a Horizon come threw the door in a Very Long time! Was just at work today and was thinking again about that water pump Question..Beleave the new thing to be looking into are those newer ford taurus and Ford Escape V-6 double cam duratec's... They have the water pump being driven by the forward cam nowadays.. it is on an ecentric adjuster.. has what looks like a smaller hose and a large 1 1/2 inch or better radiator hose..Let me know if it will workor shall post the next best alternative...

Thanks for the information Ed. I have since installed a larger radiator designs for thermal siphon use and hope this cures my problem. If it doesn't I'll be in touch with you. I won't know until the weather gets hot in a few months. Right now I'm setting in a Blizzard again so it's hard to think about hot weather. Come on spring
