Looks really good! Were you able to find a supplier of the "patent decals"? There should be a decal in the front center of the battery box and the air pressure decal on the left side of the battery box. The auxillary power outlet on the right rear corner of the battery box should have a "6V" decal as well. In J.R. Hobbs book "John Deere Tractors: The First Numbered Series" he has a studio photo (dated April 1955) of a 70 diesel showing the spokes on the steering wheel to be green. How many hours did it take to do this first class restoration?

I don't think I see that U-shaped piece with a hole in it that slips down on the crank on the 800 hitch and keeps the crank from turning. You lift the piece up to adjust the hitch. If it's not there, the crank can turn a bit towards the seat and catch under the seat box when the hitch is being raised. Don't ask how I know! PC397 covers the 800 and 801 hitches. The part I am referring to is shown on page 4, #9. It is called a clip and the part # is 31593A.

It has all the decals on it now, I just did not have them on when I took the photo. I am not sure about how many hours, but It has been in my shop for about 4 months and I worked on it 5 to 6 days every weak. Some long days and some short days. I would guess I averaged 30 to 35 hours a weak... Dang I am retired!! I am going to have to go back to work somewhere so I can get some rest.

I rebuilt the ignition system for the pony motor, also installed a new clutch in the pony motor 2 times (the first one failed after about 6 starts. The pads on the clutch came lose on both sides. glue???) I installed new seals in the pony motor transmission as well as the brake. Turned the flywheel starter ring 90deg.(Bad places in the teeth)and replaced the fiber thrust washers and reset the end play on the crank. Replaced the cam gear(broken tooth). Replaced bearing in the governor drive gear. Rebuilt the water pump. Installed a new rad.core as well as several gaskets and other odds and ends. Its a lot of work for an old retired man working by himself. A lot of time was spent on cleaning parts and getting them ready to paint.
