47 cub and loader

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

A little bit more done as I feel like it. Things will get done faster as it warms up and quits raining, at least that is what I keep telling myself.

This will be neither a slow nor a fast paint job, more of a half fast paint job. You have to say that aloud to get the full meaning

Took a few days, but a little further along. According to forecasters it will be a few days before I roll it outside and finish degreasing.

Between weather, my health, wife's health, etc. It has taken me longer than I planned, Everything is done except for installing gas tank, which will wait till after Cubarama since I want to use this as a demonstration unit for Tinker Time.

I put oil in the finals and mounted them to the tractor and left them that way for a week while I took care of a couple other projects, but a few days after the wheels were installed I found the left one was leaking either from the axle seal, or from the retainer gasket. Due to having inside weights on the wheels I can't tell which it is till I remove the wheel, so it will just have to leak till after Cubarama is over and I have more time.

Hi, John. I've seen this tractor when you had it split apart back in May when my nephew and I were over at your place, getting acquainted with the Cub world. Sorry I couldn't make it over Saturday or Sunday, but life has a way of getting in the way. Anyways, this is one I want to see when I can make it over there. At least I might be able to see it at Cubarama if it's there when I am.

Unless something unexpected comes up it will be there from about noon Thursday till mid or late afternoon Sat. I thought that while the hood was off it would be a good chance to show anyone new to cubs some maintenance tips on one. Of course, first tip is don't take the hood off, when you do that "I might as well" takes over.

Finally got back to work on it today, almost finished except for an oil leak in left final. With the wheels dished out and a set of weights on the inside I will have to pull the wheel to see if it is new axle seal or gasket though.

I put the hood back on today, and thought when I started I needed to flush the gas line which had been laying around since March, but it slipped my mind. Guess what, it was plugged. Thankfully I tested the fuel flow from the carb drain before I tried to start it, and was lucky enough none of the dirt got into the carb. Tomorrow I plan to check the leak, and put the 3rd set of weights back on. I had thought I might even get the loader back on, but I realized just before I came to the house I had not painted the grill yet, and it is unhandy to put on once the loader is mounted, so the loader will wait another day or so.
