    After that last batch of pictures, cleaned up my shop (porch) and pulled the tractor back in. I took both rear fenders off and i planned to bring them to work today for repair but i forgot. One of the guys i work with is an awesome welder and metal worker. He is going to look the fenders over and see what can be done to repair them.

    Beaver has 8-16 R1's in the back and 5-12 front. Those look like the original Bridgestone tires in the back

    The tires seem to be the original ag style on the rear because they are 8-16 bridgestone and they fronts are 5-12 bridgestone but seem to be rice patty tires.

    I am lazy and using "rattle can" paint. The white was rustoleum "almond" and the blue was "bright blue". they seem to be so close that most would not know they are not factory colors. be warned: when i first sprayed it, it seemed too yellow. but it changed as it dried and lightened up.

    I had to work it good this weekend pulling up roots and small stumps around the yard. the hydraulics started to get weak and pump make noise after about an hour of work. i found the fluid level low, so i refilled it. After about another hour, they started to do the samething. I think the filter maybe stopped up but have not had time to work on it since then.

    I found a boot to go around the shifter in an attempt to keep some trash and water from seaping in. I got a rack and pinion boot from a nissan altima and it seems to be the right size. I will let everyone know how that works out.

    I had to move an old car i have for parts to clean up my yard this weekend as well. It had 4 flat tires and the beaver powered thru. I had to lock it in 4wd and it was scratching pretty good in the dirt but it pulled it across the yard.

    I was wondering how this is working out and what the nissan part number / year / model / etc. so I could source it. I get my Beaver tomorrow, and the boot is missing and it rains too much in Seattle to go without one!

    I have been super busy lately and therefore slacking. I have not put the boot on yet but i will try to get it done this weekend. If the one i have works, i have all the info as to what it fits and such.

    I finally got back to the grind and worked on the tractor. I got the boot on the shifter but i may have to cut it off. I am gonna give it a try as is for a little bit. Here is a before shot with the shifter knob removed. It was quite a bear to loosen but a 17 mm wrench and a pair of vice grips took care of it.

    I also had time while waiting for dinner so i sanded and painted the hub, axle and wheel. Now i did get lazy and did not tape off the tires like i did in the front. They will get replaced down the road anyway. I really just wanted to stop the rust from progressing. This wheel is the one i purchased from Valley Power a few weeks ago but still had a few spots of rust. The axle was cleaned and sanded but i just let the paint fall on the housing. I will do more on that this winter as i plan to break the tractor in half to replace the throw out bearing and sand blast the entire thing.

    I will get the part number for that boot later but the application is 02 thru 07 nissan altima 2.5 4 cyl, rack bellows or boot. It is a bit long but the diameter was correct (and it was free).

    Today I washed the entire tractor down with a degreaser. Then I cleaned off my garage area (front porch). I pulled the other rear wheel and started to sand down that wheel. I did figure out that whom ever owned this tractor before me tried to destroy it. I found the inside of the rear tire and wheel torn up from a lack of sway links on the 3 pt hitch. I had planned on replacing the rear tires bit not anytime soon. I may have to move that up higher in priority. I kinda ran out of daylight now. Nothing real interesting for today.
