I know some of you guys on here wrench.  I thought it might be neat to have a thread where we can share the projects/jobs that we are working on.  I'll start.

 

A customer brought in a 3720 and said the 4 wheel drive wasn't working.  Found that both seal plugs under the front spindles were gone, and obviously no oil in either of the front drive hubs.  Luckily the center diff retained enough oil to keep it lubricated.  The right side drive is completely torn up...

I "Liked" your post,  but please don't get me wrong,  So sorry!  Its perhaps a good thing you got to it before more damage or getting stuck in a field with the wheel under the tractor.  

Then you would be posting in the wall of shame :)

This isn't necessarily a "farming" shop issue,  but a fun project while making hay is on its winter break.

Building a new wood elevator for the firewood processor atm. 

Old one was so shot the chain would just fall apart with no wood on it, flat chain was worn to the point where the links were paper thin. 

Picked up a New Idea ear corn elevator for half of what new conveyor chain would have cost to repair the old one.

Took a section out to shorten it to thirty foot, cut another couple feet off the top end as it was all tore up from the sprockets and chains rubbing the sides of the elevator. Turns out the bearings had seized on the top shaft and the sprockets started to rotate on the shaft, too hogged out for 1”, can’t get em chucked square enough in the lathe to bore em out to 1 1/8” then would have to change the slack adjusters as well as they have no room to goto a 1 1/8 bearing with the larger OD, so just ordered two new flame cut sprockets, should be here any minute unless UPS is running late.

Going to drive this from the top with a hydraulic motor and a B belt to act as a clutch if something should jam. Going to top drive as the old was a bottom drive and with all the slack always at the bottom weird things happened when handling firewood.

Currently a flail mulcher torn apart getting newer bearings, a subaru getting a timing belt and oil pump, a Suzuki sx4 car getting clutch and master cylinder, and a line up outside the door waiting to get in for oil changes and cylinder repacking.

Did you have to get a building permit for that size tool shed? :lol:

I burned up one side of my little kubota one winter.  They used clear Kubota SUDT fluid and the seal went in the winter, didn't notice in the snow.  I was putting lots of miles on doing snow removal and it ate the bearing cage up letting the balls come out.  My bottom caps stayed on and it started making noise when the pieces went through the gears.

 

Surprisingly straightforward to work on once you find out how to take them apart.

 

I know some of you guys on here wrench.  I thought it might be neat to have a thread where we can share the projects/jobs that we are working on.  I'll start.

I just started on building a farm display so there's nothing to it yet. For years as I accumulated the toy tractors and implements, I envisioned building one. I sort of have time now so I decided to go ahead and start. I will definitely share pics as I get it set up.

Shhhh we don't tell anybody nothing!!! If they come and appraise, I'll tell them it's been there for a while and recently renovated. If they don't believe that, I will say it's portable...just let be disassemble it one piece at a time... Thanks, I know I'll wow you with the finished product!

Just finished converting two JD 4020's to twelve volt had to put water pump on second one so that held us up a couple days . Boy do those gear reduction starters spin those old motors over good 25 degrees hear tonight and spun the motor like it was 80 degrees. Tomorrow night going to put sheet metal back on . Then I've got a IH 560 gas tractor that hasn't run in about 18 years I hope the motor isn't seezed up that will probably need a valve job and I know it jumps out of 2nd and 3rd gear . It was our grinder mixer tractor the last five years it ran .

Doing some maintenance on my John deere 336 by replacing a few bearings, ajjusting the plunger, new pick up times, and chains and while I had it apart figured I would go ahead and sand it down a little and give it a new paint job.

I changed one out on my 1600 Oliver to the gear reduction, made a world of difference on cold starts.

Eventually the 2355 will go in to get a clutch. Still using, have to plow  snow, never know when a customer will want round bales. Sucks when it is the only loader.

4040 fix many hydraulic leaks

1586 fix many hydraulic leaks, electrical issues, engine oil leak
