I've been staying busy working on a John Deere 1010 crawler/loader, Ya I know it is green, but I needed a crawler to remove some irrigation flood gates on property and kinda level few high spots in back field. No longer flood irrigating, all has gone to pressurized system here.
Got both finals off, had to replace all fiber frictions, steel drive plates, steering pressure plates, throw out bearings on both sides, Also repaired both brake bands, installed new friction on bands, glued them on with industrial JB Weld. Have most done, just waiting on gauge to adjust PP fingers, and waiting for second throw out bearing. Hopefully can start putting it back together some time this week. Every where I checked, they wanted $215.00 for one brake band, I bought the friction material from Auto Friction in Damascus, OR for $88.00 which included shipping. Enough material for both bands. Sure a lot cheaper by doing it myself. Oh the JB weld was $16.00, so made the cost per band $52.00, so I saved $326.00.
Next I have to pull motor and see why it only has 90lbs on # 2,#3,and #4, 140lbs on #1. Rings might just be stuck since previous owner put in new sleeve deck. Guess we'll find out after I tear motor down..

Hope everyone is doing great and had a great summer

Crawlers can be testy to work on. It rains here all the time. I work at fencing when it's not too muddy.

Been busy working and pulling tractors a few times. Upgraded my pickup this summer from an 06 F150 to an 06 F350 diesel :) Picked up another project tractor, IH 460U diesel with a cracked block, like cracked all the way around the block behind nu. 6, but got another engine to go into it. And now may acquiring an old Case 1030 Wheatland from friend I hauled a Johnny 4430 for.

I repaired the flag pole last week and hung a new Old Glory. We went to the river camp and brought the camper home for the winter Saturday. I am not ready for winter, but it is coming anyway. :cry:
