Today I got both drop housings rebuilt, resealed the transmission, and put new bearings in the jack shaft. I moved the blue parts out of the paint area and will get the black parts cleaned and in for paint this week20240218_114804.thumb.jpg.6eb6b8fdc57ca75c10ed8df1fc73e775.jpg20240218_120801.thumb.jpg.f24f01111b2d9350f622be885738d95e.jpg

You are starting to remind me of another member, Fast Paul!  He often would present a similar picture of a tractor in need of restoration. Less than a week later a new picture would appear of the restored tractor. 

Great start!

i got some of the black parts painted this week. however the front axle didnt turn out so good so it will have to be redone. at least i can get the transmission bolted together and back in the frame this weekend20240226_203212.thumb.jpg.560298c08502b181cece8a9267bc2d7a.jpg
