I actually haven't had it done yet myself. I have spoken with him though, I cant wait to get started on the motor. The clutch has to get finished first and a bit of misc things , then finally the motor.

Finished  drilling and tapping all of the holes in the clutch assembly it is all one piece now. Now I have to figure out the best way to keep the basket and pulley assembly from moving up on the shaft. I'm sure that I will need a thrust bearing and some sort of collar in there some where. The shaft on the gearbox already has to be extended about 2 1/4", so I need to keep it as low a profile as possible.

Extended shaft RAGB almost all of the mass is in the bushing, bearing and the pulley, I don't see that portion of it being much different than a normal application The "extended" part of the shaft just holds the pressure plate and clutch pack. It's gonna stick down a ways though. Don't know how much additional load the bearing in the RAGB is going to see because of this.

Sourced a thrust bearing today. Going to make another collar to hold the bearing in place and attach to the shaft.
Should be able to keep the whole thing about half an inch.

My pops made the collar today for the thrust bearing, I started another project during the holidays been takin up my spare time. I haven't been spending much time on the tractor, at this rate who knows when it will get done. At this point I am looking for a reasonable set of keyway cutters. I have checked Grizzly and MSC. I have enought that I have to cut that it's probably cheaper to buy the cutters/ broach?  I have never done it not exactly sure what I really need. Has anyone seen any good deals lately?


 


We had an old homemade open trailer around working on enclosing it.

Moon Cutters - for key seat cutters.
They are the best buy for the buck in my book.
American made but not over priced!

Broaches...there are only 2 brands of broaches...

Dumont & Not Dumont!   

Do you have any one who can sharpen tools?
I have some dull cutters I would give to you.

I finally welded up the wheelie bars. I won't be getting any style points for the welding but I am quite confident that they will hold up.




1/29/2011 Primered wheelie bars today. Man I can't weld to save my life, it's gonna hold but sure is ugly!!!!

As long as you have good penetration on both pieces, you can grind away/smooth away a good bit of the bumps and bubbles on the welds. Then a light touch of glazing just before final primer.

welding is something you definately do not learn over night.....it takes years of paractice to be really good at it.....but ya got to start somewhere.....go to the scrap pile and practice, you will learn quicker than you think, nice build by the way, and as Randy says as long as you have good penetration on both pieces it will hold fine, nothing a grinder and a lil spot putty can't fix!!!

Thanks guys, I am gonna have to try and turn up my patience a bit. I did a little grinding today, it's gonna take a bit of work but I guess it will be ok in the end.
