    You're the only guy I know that would flirt with a girl modeling a full coverage paint suit and respirator! Double hugs for you.

    Wait until you drag it out, all clean and pretty, and in 30 minutes of tillage work has an inch of dirt on it. Always hurts just a little.

    In the back of your shop, are those shiny things on the shelves trophies of some sort? Looks like it.

    Sixdogs,
    Over my right shoulder? Those are 1/4 thru 15/16" Combination wrenches hanging from the shelf.
    Yeah, dirt can make you a little down on your work. But they are made to throw dirt!

    I lowered the frame and removed a cinder block. -3-31-13-rockshaft-up

    Then I started installing the gangs. The front ones were easy, but the left rear gang mounts had the bolt hole's diameter increased because (I guess) of rounded carriage bolt shoulders. So, it was more fun fighting in those 2 bolts. The gang mounts are split and slide into each other. I installed the rear mount and lifted the gang bearing up, then had to use a C clamp to compress the two mount halves together. Then finger in the last bolt and lift the gang up enough to start a nut. Very tedious and delicate with numerous finger pinching points in the process.-3-31-13-disc-gang

    I had messed up with the new bolts being two different sizes and wound up buying 4 too many 3/4 inch bolts and I shorted myself four 5/8 inch bolts. So I only could install three gangs Sunday during the rain.

    Tomorrow I will be going to look at used aircraft tires and wheels to buy. I will be going with wider wheels and tires to get more height in the tires.
    hugs, Brandi

    Just looked at the last email from the Amco Rep. again and it is all noteworthy, good news. It's below my name. I think my hp is 57 at the shaft. Engine hp is 65.
    hugs, Brandi
    Going to guess and say your disk weighs around 3800lbs and H.P. is 50-65

    Brandi,
    A tapered drift to align the holes along with your pump jack saves a lot of pinched fingers.
    Nice paint job, if it were only blue

    Nothing beats a piece of equipment that you save by rebuilding and repainting. I do it all the time and never lost a dime on my efforts. Everyone always wants to buy the projects after I'm done and are willing to pay up for it. New decals are a real plus if you can find them,

    And as a side benefit, Brandi always wanted a red concrete floor in her shop. Super nice job of painting and restoration. It is going to be and impressive disc when you get it behind the tractor.
    Question: it looks like each blade has a backer plate of some sort on it that fits tightly to each blade. I don't think I have ever seen that but it should be nearly impossible to break a blade on that beast.

    Ron,
    Yes, a drift would work, if there was room. After you have the rear bolt started with the bearing support in the hole in the rear bracket, the front bearing mount has to be swung up at an angle with the bearing support, as you raise it all up into place with the bolt started. Then the front half has a rear slot that slides under the head of the rear bolt.

    The carriage bolt head rides up between the bearing and the mount. To see if the square shoulder of the bolt head is engaged in it's locking slot, you have to use an inspection mirror.

    Blue? You too? Brian (Mtn View Ranch) had his Mahindra 7520 painted blue before he bought it!
    hugs, Brandi
