Been making more progress. As I said many times, I am roughing this in for now...pretty can wait. Got the hood lengthened today. 3pt arms off a Case modified to work a few days ago. Had to make the lift link arms from scratch. Found a turnbuckle off an old planter row marker arm for making an adjusting link. Tons more to do, but she's coming together well. Just using a 1 gallon tank till I get time to build a large one. If rain holds off, I'll be taking it to a small plow day next Saturday to give it a test.

That thing looks like a beast Daniel. Can't wait to hear the plowing report.

Chris, I plowed some garden this afternoon & I do believe I've built my ultimate garden tractor! This thing IS the "Boss Hog", which is what I will badge it! The engine has NO idea the single 10" plow is back there. In the one wet spot, it did lose traction, but otherwise it'll go full speed with the plow, tossing dirt too far for a smooth job. I just hold the hydro to full speed with a little over 1/2 throttle for a smooth plow. No way I need full engine rpm, but at the same time, full rpm with slower pedal speed is easier on the hydro. I could smell the hydro getting hot after a while, so I stopped plowing till it cooled a while. I have enough hydraulic hoses to run the return lines in a loop to the front of the radiator, where I'll mount a new 8x14" six pass cooler I already had. This should take care of the heat. Short just 3 fittings to install it, but I'll get it all ready this week. I hope it doesn't rain too much this week to prevent plow day at Georgetown, Ky this Saturday.

Drove the JB diesel to my BIL's tonight. Parked the diesel JB next to his John Deere 430. The JB is a couple inches longer, and front to back wheelbase is about 2" longer also, with my JB's wheelbase remaining stock. The 430's hood is a good 3" taller than the JB's hood. I thought the 430 was wider in the rear wheels, but they are the pretty much the same. Both are pretty large machines!

Very impressive
How many horse power is this engine
Instead of running hoses to your oil cooler I would like to
suggest tubbing. You will dissipate a lot more heat that way. I'll be priming the hood on mine in the next couple of days and then I will
post some new photos.
Plowing this afternoon would be great. I can't even see my garden over the snow

I thought about using large brake line, but going low-buck and I have the hoses already. When I pull her apart to do painting (a year or more possibly), I think I'll lay in some tubing then, as she goes back together. Right now things are overcrowded, but with apart, it would be easy to route the steel line.
The engine is rated 22 1/2hp continuous, 27hp intermittent. Heading to "The Parker Store" for my fittings in a few minutes.

Getting the JB Diesel "Boss Hog" ready for Vevay, Indiana plow day on the 16th. The NOS hydro & differential seem fine, but wanted to test her out. So took to the field with the 2 bottom double 10" plow. It pulled mighty hard in our tough soils, but mainly because this is a single speed differential & gearing is just too high for a seriously hard pull. So I dropped the one plow & went single 10"......and it'll walk the dog! I just leave it full speed at the hydro & adjust speed with the throttle. What I need now is a single 12" plow. I also shot some primer on her to make it not as redneck for plow day. Here's a video starting with the 2-bottom, then me with the single, then my BIL Fred on the last of the video. Fred likes to video his fingers! LOL At least his nails are clean!
Watch Fred (look for the green hat) in the last of the video when he opens the throttle. This beast doesn't know a 10" plow is even back there!

Oh yeah, I hadn't showed the fenders I made from 1/8" sheet metal! Since I took these pics, I added seat rails welded direct to the fenders, that you can see in the video.

Oh, also forgot to tell about the Georgetown, Ky plow day....my original hydro gave out 20 minutes in. The charge pump quit on me. So I just watched everyone else plow, but still had a good time. The NOS hydro & differential now reside in the tractor!

That is just nuts Daniel. I don't think I have ever seen a plow throw dirt like that. You give that tractor throttle
with the plow down and the tractor doesn't even know it's back there. Great job!

That looked like so much fun you could use it for stress relief therapy. Works good Daniel. Can't wait to see it finished and painted. Dave.
