alright guys i have my tractor up and going so i just need to get the tire and some rattle cans of paint and get it on the internet to sell. once i get it sold i will have the money to get my 4x4. im so dang exited that its killing me guys. also i need some pointers on what i need to do to the truck first besides the oil throughout the driveline and engine and greasing everything up. i did find out that a starter isnt all it needs. it is gonna have to have a clutch but the guy said it has some life left in it but ill replace it when it goes out.

My advise is not to rattle can the tractor.

I have no problems with buying an old tractor, but if I can tell it has been rattle can painted, I will not even call on it.

Rattle can on a tractor tells me someone is trying to cover up something or they are trying to ask more than it is worth.

Tractors are covered in oil, dirt, and grease. If you rattle can it, you are painting over those parts, painting wires that are color coded, and painting fuel filters in place making them hard to replace later.

Just wash it. Get some bristle brushes and degreaser to scrub off the big chunks of dirt and grease. Take it to a coin operated car wash if you have a way to transport it.

A clean tractor looks better.

the thing is there is nothing but grease on it and there is nothing wrong with it. it runs like a top but yes you are right a clean tractor is good but im not gonna paint everything. im only gonna paint the finders and the hood. everything else is ok to go as it is. and i appreciate the advice on that.

Well, the transmission is back in for this clutch job I'm doing, except....I am not able to push it in for the last half-inch. I mean it's CLOSE, but not quite close enough to insert the bell housing bolts enough to make them grab. We're talking no more than a quarter inch longer bolt before they would grab the threads on the back of the engine.

I was considering buying two slightly LONGER bolts and trying to 'draw in' the tranny evenly on each side until the stock bolts will go in.

The gap now is so small I could not put my finger in between the tranny and the back of the motor. I would say the gap is no more than the length of the pilot bushing, and probably less. Does anyone think my idea to finalize this is good, or bad idea?

i need some ideas of what i can do to the 4x4 when i get it. also i think your plan could work but you never know till you try. the thing ive always been told about transmissions is that they need to go on perfectly straight if you want it to go great.
