Finished up the belt pulley. I bought one this Spring at an auction, then bought another one through muleboss. One had an inward gear that was tapered, the other didn't. I stripped and cleaned the one and that happened to be the one that didn't fit on the rear gear of my tractor. Had to tear the other one apart, remove the inward gear and use it instead. Didn't know the first one would fit until I got it done and put it up there to install it.

Also put in new seals:

Got home early Friday--a really nice day--and shot some primer.

Glad I didn't tear down my shed yet, it makes a great painting booth.

Today appears to be the last decent day here for the foreseeable future; warm, very calm wind and low humidity. Sounds like a great afternoon to shoot some paint! And red was my color of choice.

Now when the rainy, cold weather hits, I can begin some assembling in the barn. Looks like I'll go as far as I can, then start work on the major sheet metal pieces; gas tank, hood, nose/grille and fenders. It's been a fun project.

Well, I thought last weekend was the final painting weekend, but was wrong. Even after a cold snow overnight Wednesday into Thursday, it still warmed up enough to flip the rear wheel centers and get them, the rear rims and the front rims all painted yesterday.

Got to let this dry, then will be able to mount the rear tires/tubes and get this thing on rubber tires once more. :tractor:

Last winter with the help of a torpedo heater from tsc I got a lot of paint work done in my barn. I’d warm it up to about 70, shut it off, paint then set electric heaters up under the parts. You’ve got a lot done but if you get one of those heaters you can keep the momentum going.

I bought this on Black Friday and it was on sale for $150, $50 off. I’ll tell you that it was one of if not the best tool purchase I’ve ever made.
Kerosene by me is $7 a gal while diesel is $3 so I run diesel. It has a hint of smell at first then it’s fine. The $50 I saved bought me a carbon monoxide detector with a digital readout and alarm. It doesn’t read any CO and I haven’t had any headaches so I guess it’s burning clean and my barn is drafty enough.
Mind you, I don’t spray paint with this running ;).

I just bought some kerosene on Saturday. My local Fleet-Farm has 2.5 gallon containers of kerosene for $19.95, call it $8 per gallen. But if you bring your own can and head over near their gas pumps, you can fill the can for $3.799 per gallon. Same store, less than half the price. Places with bulk kerosene can be hard to find, but they are well worth the search.

There’s only one pump by us and at $7 it’s more than twice the price of diesel. Kerosene burns cleaner but the difference is so slight it’s not worth the expense. The heater can be adjusted to the fuel used which helps. Gotta have that blue can for kerosene too. I convinced the station guy to fill my yellow diesel can with kerosene telling him they were pretty much the same thing but some won’t do it.
The heater instructions say you can use kerosene, diesel, home heating oil and “jet” fuel .

Got my TSC Black Friday flier in the mail today. They are running the $50 off sale on the Master 80,000btu heater again. At $150 it’s a worthwhile purchase. .
