B1 restoration

Recommended Posts

MDB
Here are some of the pics. of the restoration of the B1 AC that I bought on EBAY last December. This is what I started out with, no engine, no grill, no seat or gas tank, so I needed some parts to make it complete....

I desided to do this as a frame up restoration so the next step was to take it all apart,

The first step was to disasemble an go through the transmission and BGB

The previous owner had put a bigger engine in this tractor and had done a hack job on the frame so that was the next step

Nice torch job on the frame isn't it...:p

There that looks a little better,:D The next step was to sand all of that old yellow paint and rust off and get ready to paint, [img]/club2/attach/MDB/Painting-6.jpg[/img] Here is the engine that Thedaddycat sold me, a good stong 19D thanks Kirk8D [img]/club2/attach/Mdb/painting-7.jpg[/img] I hung all of the small parts on hanger rods with wire so as to make it easyer to handle them, at one time I had over 100 parts from 2 tractors hung up...

Here is the engine primed and ready to paint YELLOW:D

Here is some of the sheet metal ready to install.

Transmission and frame plus the frame from my B110.

Here the tractor is starting to take shape.

Finally back on four wheels8D

Engine in and bolted down

Wiring done, gas tank installed, almost ready to start it up.8D

New grill screen and a good set of chrome trim peices that I bought from a club member.

Here is the finished product.

This has been a fun project the last 6 months, finding some of the parts has been challenging but with the help of a number of club members this project has come together, Thanks.8D^

Mike, It's hard to find adjectives that haven't already been used to describe that fine resto that you've done with the B-1. Any time you want to come out east and finish my 700 for me you'd be more than welcome. It's hard to find the time to do everything that needs to get done and work on the resto. Hopefully it'll be a little cooler next week and I can get some more sand blasting done!:D:)^

Looks real good! Photo's like yours gets me in the mood to work on the B-110, knowing it will look just a good when I'm done. I like the cornfield background, it matches up perfectly with the B-1. BTW How far are those houses and barns away? look like about 1/2 mile.

It's good to see another one put back to rights. What a wonderful job!! It almost makes me want to do the whole number on the Putt Putt, except that I'd be afraid to use it after that........

Nick, The buildings in the background are about 1/2 mile away. Daddycat, I'm planning on using this tractor to mow and do other things, but I know what you mean about being afraid to use it... ReedS, Sure does take a lot of time doesn't it, with Jacob (my 8 year old) in spring soccor and now in baseball and with everything else it was hard to find the time to keep this project going...

Mike, VERY NICE!!!! Makes me want to call my buddy and get my tractor home today instead of tomorrow. I see a trailer in my future, this waiting for help is a killer. Robin, just always keep your eyes peeled, you to will find one. I was to the point of thinking I would never find one too. Almost ran off the road the morning I spied the one I bought.

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
