How we doing on the clutch...?

I'm at the point of getting a shaft made just haven't done it been pretty busy and moneys tight. It probably won't be a fortune but just don't have the extra. I hope to finish up what I am doing and get back to it soon.

I had all these parts laying around in a box so I decided to work on an engine test stand, This will take care of the wiring bit.



I have a stand and aluminum plate as well, I think the only thing I really have to buy are some battery cables.

I picked out a machine shop today to make the shaft, took the clutch assy there to show him what we needed and he gave us a piece of 4130 steel and a cutter insert for the lathe, so pops is gonna rough the shaft and we are going to take it back to him to cut the splines and finish the shaft up. I think I picked the right machine shop! I also think I found a place to get the machine work done for my motor too. All in all a pretty good day.

My pops had the shaft machined except for one last part of it and darned if he didn't cut it down just a few thousands too far. The rest of it was perfect. He hasn't had a chance to start over. Meanwhile I have been working on an engine test stand. Oh and it is actually 4140 steel we are using for the shaft not 4130.

The clutch/gearbox shaft is roughed out next have to take it to the machine shop to have it finished.



Still working on enclosing our old trailer I did some welding on it yesterday



I need the trailer to have a place to store the tractor
 
I also worked on my engine test stand today.  I hope to pretty much finish it up by the end of the week.

Been a long time! Numerous projects around the house, the heat and lack of funds has almost halted any progress on my tractor. However I found this at the local junk yard today and couldn't resist. I will put it under a tarp for now!

30 cu/in Pro Stock...

It's still a solid platform to build on and parts are much more available . I know you have your heart set on that "one of a kind" build your doing, but I've found even though the cubs have been used for years and all parts are a phone call away, that putting together the right combination to be competitive is still an elusive skill...

OOPS!!!!! I moved some pix around and broke some links for some pix in a couple of earlier posts! I haven't given up on the craftsman. Over the winter I have been working on the cub that I found last summer just finished all the bodywork/welding and the primer. It was a lot of work but I think it came out pretty good!
