I'm getting ready to remove the hood on the 640 to replace valve rocker arm and pushrod cover gaskets. I'm also rewiring it. I haven't looked yet to get an idea on how to remove. Any pointers? Is it a 2 man job?

I had to remove the gas tank last year so I too had to take the hood off and the side panels as well. I'm glad I had someone there to help me lift it off. Still, I bent the flanges a bit. Luckily, they bend back easily. After removing it I rested it upright on a sawhorse so as not to put stress on the flanges/screws. And that is a mighty fine lookin' piece of work you have there. Or did you just lift the picture from somebody's web site?

It's Dad and my tractor right after the refurbishing. Doesn't look as pretty now. :-)

It's a working machine.

Two man job? I didn't, but mine had no paint or decals and was all bent to heck anyway. By the nice look of yours, I'd find somebody to lend a hand.

I started back by the column, where the most bolts/nuts are, and was pretty well done swearing by the time I got up front.

You'll find it easiest to remove your bumper, or I did anyway. I left the grill on.

Mighty purty tractor ya got there.

When you put the gas tank back on make sure the bolts are good and tight. The shaking is what makes 'em crack.
