You to Lady :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

I've got my 224-79 totally disassembled and most all the worn areas rebuilt. I've got nearly all the new OEM parts that were required sitting on a shelf. And since I tore this apart 2 years ago I have no idea where to start. :headscratcher:

I'm not into Painting and thought I would reference the parts manual and reassemble my 224 and then take it to painter and they could give it a Factory Paint Job. I could bring it home and finish the assembly. My k-321 has been returned from my Kohler dealer and has a leak down of 8%. My pump stalled my 224-79 at 2650 lbs when it had a leak down of 12%. If I were interested in the cost I would part it out and get some return on my investment but since this has been my workhorse for thirty years and now is a family member I just can't be the one responsible for it's demise.

We sold our acreage in Nov that was home to this unit since buying it in 1981 and are living in our downtown Regina House on our 27' X125' lot, I got a Brand new Ariens walk behind for my 14' x27' driveway but I want to keep my 224-79 in Case we ever get the storm of the century. :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: I think my baby will be like Boomers 83 or 84 (lol) 448 and will never sleep outside again. :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

If any of you have thoughts on how to reassemble my loved, one I would appreciate your opinions.

I'm going to get a Factory Blade to replace my Sears blade on the advice of cuzin Bart and Heretico from a couple years ago on yahoo. :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

I might add my non OEM 3 spool valve to my right hand fender in the future but not for now. :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

It will be a Trailer Queen for awhile but when the big storm comes I'll have my 224-79 RR sitting in the corner of my shop and I'll be blowing the sidewalks of Downtown Regina with my 38" with wings. ( i need a set of wings) :sidelaugh:

If any of you have bought a box job and re-assembled it I would like to hear how you did it. :trink:

I have considered buying another Low Pro to see where things go but definitely don't have room to keep it. :thumbsup:

Thanks Guys

Stewart: I would bring the frame, fenders , hood, etc. now for the paint job and then reassemble. I would replace all components such as hydraulic lines suspect of leaking, etc. in hard to reach places. Is this tractor headed to the mountaintop in Costa Rica eventually? If so, actually in any case, I would have it reassembled as a "new" so there are no issues. It's the right thing to do for your baby. :thumbup: Just my most humble opinion. :usa: :thumbsup:

24 hours have gone by and all you got was one reply. :sidelaugh: Serves you right for your over-the-top behaviour a week ago. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Since no one else will carve you a new one, then I guess that task is left up to me. :razz: :razz: :razz:

Serves you right, Flatlander. Let this be a lesson to everyone contemplating a total rebuild of their tractor. Take THREE important items with you into the garage and then USE THEM. The first two items are pen and paper.....preferably one of those full size notebooks with the coiled wire spine. The final item is a decent digital camera......not your POS Cell Phone. You need to photograph this tractor from all four sides BEFORE you remove a single item. And then you need to continue photographing it as you remove items. The pad and pen are there to make a step by step list of what you did to dismantle the tractor. Parts will come off the tractor in a certain sequence because some parts cannot be removed until other parts are. So.... you begin with number 1. "Opened hood and disconnected headlight wiring" 2 "Removed cotter pin from hood hinge-pin, removed hinge-pin and removed hood from tractor." Ya, I know. It sounds boring but if you trust all this stuff to memory, then you will be just like my pal Stewart here. Lost in Space. The problem with these projects is that LIFE gets in the way. What you think will take 2 weeks could turn into 2 months or 2 years. The close up photos and the notes will become invaluable when you put the tractor back together. At that point, you will thank me for making these suggestions.

I'm not into Painting and thought I would reference the parts manual and reassemble my 224 and then take it to painter and they could give it a Factory Paint Job. I could bring it home and finish the assembly.

OK.... you don't want to paint. However, if you want the tractor to look good when it is finished, then do it right. Do all the prep work to the frame, fenders, panels, rims and hood and then send them out to someone for painting. All of the small stuff, including the front and rear axles.......paint them yourself. Paint guns don't cost very much at Princess Auto and neither do the small pancake or hotdog style compressors. Enamel is as close as your local Case/IH dealer and a quart of Power Red will go a long way. When you get the frame back from the paint shop, the very first thing to do is to install the new dash decal and then put the ID plate back on. If you need more help, then ask me.

My k-321 has been returned from my Kohler dealer and has a leak down of 8%. My pump stalled my 224-79 at 2650 lbs when it had a leak down of 12%. If I were interested in the cost I would part it out and get some return on my investment but since this has been my workhorse for thirty years and now is a family member I just can't be the one responsible for it's demise.

That's the sort of thing that warms my heart. :lol:

The best way to accomplish this task is to buy a case of good single malt Scotch and then I'll come up and help you. :trink: :trink: Of course you would have to be on your good behavior--it wouldn't be proper to take advantage of your good looking cuz. :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

Already on the shelf ( thanks to Steve :thumbsup: ) sitting beside my new OEM plastic one's from Tom H .
I also got new gaskets with help from Cuzin Bart so I'm ready for the big Blizzard should it arrive :thumbsup:

I'll have to check with the Lady if I can install the 777's or if I require the plastic one to keep my OEM status :thumbsup:

I can assure you that when my 224-79 hits the streets of Regina there will be a huge celebration in Sask. Might even be worth a trip to the east coast :trink:
