    This month marks month Six in this old beast, spent some time Off it and few hours on it as could spare them. Trans seems to do well(Knocking on my Wooden Head), has replacement rails, track tensioner seals, engine oil/fuel leaks negated, all new coolant hoses and a replacement radiator, operating station brush guard F & R rails rock guards, right final replaced, Idler and sprocket shields installed, alternator install and operating station arm rests with seat work completed, even has a seatbelt now. Some minor little repairs included as well all fluids/filters changed except Hydraulics. Almost forgot, replaced Hood, exhaust elbow and turbo!!

    No dupont overhaul from me this time, just ready for the wet to dry down so can get old Fat Allis back to work.

    TWO days hammering and bending out the kinks, replaced the mount ears for rear shields.

    You'd better be careful splashing that yellow paint around, someone may mistake it as new!! ;) You've done a great job on her, probably more care than she's seen in a long while, hope it dries out now and she gives you 10 times the hours that you put into getting her right again. She's lucky to have you, not many of those girls left, especially in the shape yours is now...

    For the Pipe Mounts in front, fit curve of pipe to at least appear cleaner, also the Down Stops on the insert ends, keeps the cage from hammering on the cross bolts. Just heavy wall pipe scrap cut outs.

    And the Reason for "FAT ALLIS" Was the FIAT ALLIS Decals that were on Both sides of hood and rear of fuel tank.
