CNKS said: (quoted from post at 08:08:47 07/08/12) I was surprised when I warped mine. This was the hood off a 460, it flattened the lengthwise crease in the center of the hood, the rest was ok. I hope the guy or you that does your WD9 disassembles more than Colby64 did his 560. He didn't even remove the distributer or the oil cansiter, or the seat, or the steering column, etc. Anyplace there is a part left on, the rear of the part and the cast, etc behind it does not get proper coverage. Hard to do with a diesel like yours unless you remove the injection pump and all the tubes, which you or him probably does not want to do. Colby's gas tractor has a lot of unpainted parts, regardless of how good it looks. I have nothing else to do, so mine get 100% stripped -- but I don't have a diesel.

Don't worry, mine is already further apart than that. Can you imagine if he would have blasted and painted it when he first started showing pictures!?!

You brought up something I never thought would make such a difference. Gas start diesel. Truthfully I should have restored something like my '43 H before I took on a gas start.
I just bought a large TP pressure blaster. I think I will blast my own stuff now. I am going to leave the sheetmetal to the pro. This guy restored a $250,000+ Corvette this winter. Right now he has some Pontiac that looks like a 442 and a Chevelle in the shop.

Here are a couple shots of everything I have off the tractor. That new dstates guy was asking about what I was taking off so I took some pictures.

Don't worry about that fuel filter. It is a junk one off a parts motor I bought back from a scrap yard. The mag crane wrecked it when he picked it up. I am keeping it around for the fittings.

This is the bulk of the parts. A few of those things are going to be done by hand like the air cleaner. Will I get the oil pan or air intake pipe clean enough if I blast them?

Just got the radiator back. I am thinking about spraying the fins rattle can black. I know it hurts their cooling, but I don't think it would look very good all green and not evenly colored.

I usually leave my radiator cores unpainted, but yours looks like it could use some help. Painting probably ok as long as you keep it light.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Yeah, it had a hole punched in it and I wasn't going to spend $6-800 bucks to get it recored. I guess you have to draw the line somewhere. You will hardly see it when it gets in the tractor especially if I cover it up with a little black paint.

Here is a picture of the repair. I actually thought they did a pretty good job. Boiled, tested (including the cap), and repaired for $90.

I had a fist size hole in an M radiator that I bought in 1993, changed the antifreeze and it leaked. Recommended or not I put Bars leaks in it and it lasted for 19 years before I sold it in Feb this year. Intended to restore it, which meant a new radiator, but never got around to it.
