Here you go, this is a 1947 model 90, or "88-90" as the tag says. This one is very rare as it has the Love three point lift on the back, about a dozen or so are known to exist. Has the L head 134, the t90 and the dana 18 xfer case with no 4wd output.

I packed the bearings then had to remove them all to shorten the internal spacer just a bit.


Looking good Bob!  Do you have a photo of this Empire tractor? I'm curious :-)

I thought I would give the millennials something to Google when they are stopped behind me. Maybe they will learn something …..…, but I doubt it.

I've been rebuilding another GDZ 4817a generator. The armature has been serviced, field coils rewrapped and rewired, lots of little things done. Waiting on a new commutator end bronze bushing and a set if NOS Autolite brushes to arrive.

Yesterday, I decided to take a look at my PTO gearbox on the 3B and discovered that instead of gear oil, it was full of water. Drained that and now I'm planning on taking it apart over the next few weeks.

GOT MY TITLE!  

My 47 came with title problems. Took 3 months, but I've got 'em resolved.  Obviously, I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on a vehicle I might not be able to title... 

So...  On with the project :)

Unfortunately... high temps this week around 15f.  Doubt I'll be out in the shop much :D

Cut down and removed a dead tree.   It might have fallen on road in front of our house one day, so removed for safety,  and this yellow pine makes decent "starter" firewood.

Well, it was supposed to be an outing to go do some plinking. Turned into playing in the mud. Got a friend to bring out his newer Jeep. So, I felt comfortable to take her out for her longest off road outing. Didn't do much plinking.
 
Only had one issue. I hit a deep hole in the mudhole. Next thing it sounds like my clutch exploded. Got it out of the hole and to the side of the path. Fan shroud extension was pushed into the blade. How the hell did that happen? Bent it back but it still made noise the whole way back. Need to get under the hood and figure out what happened.
 
Scraped about 40 pounds off mud of her. No gas in the pressure washer. Great. Spent the next hour trying to wash away another 40 pounds.
 
That was fun. I need to do that again. Next time, I'll remember to get gas for the pressure washer.
 
It took me only four tries to get a picture to post right side up. Wow

Yes.  I used a lever type switch from a '50's chevy.  Bolted it to the master cyl. cover plate on the floor.  With the brake pedal up the switch is open, push the brake pedal down and the switch closes and the brake lights come on.  It took some adjustment when first installed but has worked well.

Me and a buddy were driving around yesterday in our jeeps. 22 degrees out, but it was fun. But he tells me that my brakes lights are flickering, sometimes the work, sometimes not. 9 months ago I installed a new master cylinder, brake light switch and new wiring. I'm suspecting the switch has gone bad. I see a lot of people have trouble with these. I'll verify it today. I'm thinking about going with a mechanical switch instead. Has anyone else done this?

Fired her up this afternoon. Last week she would not idle and I had to replace the alternator. Must have been some junk in the carb after sitting a couple months. Revved her up a few times seems to have blown it out. Readjusted idle and mixture.

Took her to Auto Zone to get radiator sealant. The crack above the distributor has been dripping a bit more lately. Filled the tank with fresh gas.

The handbrake stopped working a while back. The lever would not pull back. Everything at the drum is new. Figured the ratchet was rusty or had junk in it. Pulled it out and it was fine. Cable seized. Pulled it out. Seized so much that even pulling on it with pliers couldn’t get it to move. I did not like the prospect of replacing it. So, I massaged the housing back and forth for a few minutes and got it to move. With some oil and more massaging, I got it all freed up. Put it back in, put some grease on the ratchet and it works better than ever.

Tomorrow, if the weather holds out, I’m going to take her up in the hills to do some plinking with the .22.
