Just remember to start feeling sick early. Make a good show of it! They'll think you're a trooper for making it halfway through the day!

I lasted until 1400 then the affliction did me in. The boss actually asked what was wrong then immediately told me to go. Last time I told him it was crabs and I could show him if he didn't believe me. :-\  he's a bit slow somedays.. lolx

Came home and got on the little commie. Replaced all of the O rings and copper washers on the hydro system. leaks suck when you gotta take half the machine back apart to fix. Spent an hour getting the diesel shutoff to stop leaking. and have it just about ready to start, just needs fluids added tomorrow morning.

Already working on my excuse for calling in sick tomorrow. Aluminum poisoning. its not the beer that gets you its all the trace aluminum that comes out of the can. grinx

I'm sure the guy that owns that will be glad to have his commie tractor back.
It's almost like you know what you're doing!

To get the clutch adjusted I needed a specialty wrench and where do we get specialty wrenches? Horrible Freight . thumbsup2  A little cutoff wheel love and its a specialty wrench. grinx

Also put a couple of goodies in the cart while I was ordering bolts grinx never been able to tell what is what when it comes to metrical bolts.

I've found the easiest way to figure out a metric bolt is to put the shank in the open end of a metric wrench. M10 will not fit in a 9mm wrench fit nicely in a 10mm wrench and be sloppy in a 11 mm wrench.



I'm also getting better with metric because of these Chinese/Japanese/and European forklifts.

Thanks Ray. its not nearly as in depth as some that get posted on here and I still don't see how y'all can get pictures as things progress. I usually don't even think about pictures until I'm about done. I like tinkering with these old tractors and its starting to get profitable as no-one will pay a $100/hr shop rate for a <$3K tractor.

Muddy, I'm still a newb at the metrical system. I needed a replacement bolt on this job and my spare metric bolts all fit into a small coffee can. I've got a ways to go on metrics. fishslap

Too bad I'm not near you. My MF 40B needs new brakes and I am nowhere near setup to handle doing the wet brakes in the rear axle.
I'm not too good on the metric fasteners either. I have to look at a chart to figure size and thread pitch.

Couple of thoughts.

Glad you got it done and made some $'s

That is one ugly tractor lolx

Digging the metric sizing selection, don't recall seeing one so useful.
That scalloped box end is one of the few BB features that doesn't make Elroy puke

Nice job, and those bolt sizers are slick.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, It must be electrical.

That is quite reasonable to keep you from screwing up a bolt hole thumbsup2

I know metric but those bolt sizers are still useful.
