I brought this tractor home last February to be this winter's project.

It needed a little work. Obviously.

Today I got to drive it under it's own power for the first time.

A lot of work left to do. Some temporary hookups still in place.

But it runs and drives. The Sherman reverser works as designed.

Power steering is all working well other than a little water in the fluid.

I think that water got into the replacement cylinder as the PO had it stored outside.

So far, other than the battle getting the right clutch, all is well.

"I lowered the front and the hydraulic lines leaked a bunch more"

Silly Dude;

I don't think that a 'Diego Rake' is gonna look good on that tractor.

Do something else......(Paint it PINK!!!)

It'll be alright Fred, it's on cement so I can clean it all up.

I had a large drain pan under it which caught most of it, but then
I lowered the front and the hydraulic lines leaked a bunch more

Thanks Tony, I think it is working Ok, meaning it will reverse using

the lever but this is the first Sherman reverser I've had so I don't
know much about them other than what I've read here.

Hello Royse , I wish I knew you had a reverser in your tractor I would have told you to check the shifter shaft as they are noted for breaking off . I just made two dozen new shift shafts this past summer because no makes any parts for the reversers and I repair a lot of them so I had to bite the bullet and make some .

Heh. You might need to file an environmental impact statement for that oil spill, Royce. Looks about like what I had a couple of years ago when I slid a turkey roaster pan under the hydraulic reservoir of my 871, unscrewed the plug, and went into the house to wash up. :shock:

Thanks Gary, I always like to keep the original lights around.

I'm not sure which way I'm going to go on this one yet.

It will be a work tractor, so I may put LED's in there too.

I like the bright lights. Wish there were some in the mirror! :lol:

Glad that one, is gonna be a good one for you.

Did you say that the front lights are the same size as the one's I have on the 3000 ROP???? If you want to use these lights in the 1841 grill, ?????? If you remember I told you I was going to send them to you anyway......so I can send them in time for you to put them in that grill.

Just let me know when you need them!!! They both work, but as you sent me a set of the "BRIGHT" Lights, I'm not ever going to use the ones that are on the ROP!!!

Gary
