    Frame rails removed Rolled it back outside to get the rest of the dirt and grease off yesterday. Have some Flambeau red to paint it up. Eventually its going to need some track work but it'll do for now

    You can see the frame is worn here from loose bolts on the clutch bellhousing. Im going to build it back up with weld. loose bolts on these machines seems pretty common and wears the holes on everything

    Rotted battery boxes on either side of the seat. i picked up some 10ga plate to patch them up yesterday

    Thats where im at so far. Engine i have partially assembled. I just got a new oil pump for it a few days ago so i can button up the bottom end on it. just pecking away a little at a time.

    Looks like a cool project. Do you still have your 6018?

    Yes still have the 6018. I have a few threads on the other forums on resealing the hydraulic pump and rebushing the swing tower.
    The machine is a little small for my property now though. An upgrade may be in the future

    Got a little bit of paint on it. Frame is bolted back in with new bolts. I used nylock nuts on everything and torqued them to what that size fastener is rated for. Seems like just about every bolt on the machine had backed out sligntly at some point.
    I also was able to get one battery box patched. hope to work on the other side later in the week.

    No progress lately. Work has been very busy and other projects became more of a priority. hope to get back at it after the holidays.

    I've been making some progress over the past month.
    There is this little pinhole on the top side of the oil pickup and it was full of oil. Should this be sealed up? I'm guessing it should only be suckling oil through the screen. I was worried about it possible suckling air through there and destroying my fresh rebuild.

    Boy does that photo of the Diamond REO bring back memories. When I started at my job we had a fleet of REO's with quad boxes no 2 speed rears. Same color.

    Great work! What kind of paint are you using? Looks like the oil based Rustoleum primer I used on my 580CK.
