    Default Catco tractor nearer to completeion

    Managed to find a little time today and started to make up the exhaust for the Catco, thats the Atco in CAT colours

    Carb was flooding when I switched the petrol on so had a look at that, turns out the float was full of petrol so will have to find the leak and solder it up. Happy to have found out why she wouldn't run properly though

    Hood to paint and grill to finish

    Also found a disc brake, caliper, and resevoir and a lever from an old motorcycle so I can now have brakes. Just need to figure out where to put the disc, on the rear pulley above the gearbox is my choice at the moment but the brake will only work if the tractor is in gear.

    Have you spotted the deliberate mistake lol

    Deliberate mistake (not) is that the steering arm will foul the exhaust when the front axle articulates, going to fix that next.
    Got a porous brass float in the carb, its as thin as paper and although I soldered the split up it still takes in water when submerged in a bowl. No bubbles coming up but some water getting in so I decided to fabricate an inlet manifold so as I can use the spare carb off the old Honda that siezed a while ago.

    That'll keep me busy next week if it's rainin which it will be .

    Well it rained today so I made an upright exhaust with muffler box and fitted it to the little tractor

    I also made an upright air intake stack from hoover tube and hoover flexi pipe to fit on the opposite side of the hood.

    Its going to be raining again in the morning so I get get the motor started and see how she sounds and take some pictures.
    Quite looking forward to it

    Rained nealy all day today and I'm working outside

    Made a bracing thing for the upright exhaust and had her running but only just, carb flooding so I spose the float will be too heavy with all the solder I dad to put on it to stop the leaks

    Not a John Deer but hey, she's going to be different
