    These log splitters are pretty decent machines, I know what you mean about the table bolts though a few times pieces got stuck or were just the wrong length and got pinned against those brackets and did sever a bolt or two. Thought I should show how the hood was pressed before someone got the idea the splitting wedge was pushing directly on the sheet -rhino-body-work-004-jpgmetal- this (adaptor) was migged together when I couldn't get a u-joint to separate..it worked really well for that to

    Here's an update on the body work progress-this a different view after the damage, the home made -rhino-bone-head-caused-carnageRhino label jinxed me I think
    the hood so far-the metal was stretched so bad that hammer dolly/torch- wet towel wasn't enough. Finally used a 3" cut off tool then pressed it on the log splitter then mig welded and ground it down. anyway here's how it looks so far , Thanks for the input, and you guys are right on the mark there's definitely bondo or Short strand fiberglass in its future-rhino-bodywork2-004-jpg

    The biggest bone-headed move I've made with my tractor was deciding to restore it, but I've invested too much time, too much money, too much aggravation, and too many forum posts to quit now.

    Besides, when I start something I never quit.

    Yes- I'd like to restore my 1967 Ford 3000 also, but my wife says her 1974 AMX is first, and last year she got me to promise her that there would be no new projects or tractor restorations before her car. Note to self- (all future tractor work to be called maintenance) when speaking to wife!!!

    I think that's what some people call, 'the wife tax'.

    Along the way there have been a few "nuisances", but overall I've thoroughly enjoyed the process.
