    Born again 1782

    Some of you may remember my 1782 that was "too good to part out" from the other site. It was a 1782 diesel I took in trade from CubDieselFan when I sold him my 782DT. The tractor had been rolled over at some point destroying the nose and the radiator. The tractor sat outdoors for a number of years before Greg purchsed it as a parts tractor. Well, after getting Greg's 1572 delivered last week, I thought it best if I got back onto one of my projects. The 1782 has been patiently waiting for attention, so I dug in and finished the under hood stuff, welded up a muffler and took it out for a "road test" even though the fender pan is just sitting on the frame and there is no seat yet. It ran get and everything worked fine. After testing, I pulled it back into the shop to address servicing the rear axle and hydro. I had planned to do a cork gasket and replace the axle seals, but after getting into it I found the shaft seals on the hydro were seeping, so a total re-seal is in order.
    The fluid looks pretty funky and smelled terrible! Stay tuned! load2.jpegalmost2.jpegalmost1.jpegalmost3.jpeg

    Whew! That fluid is nasty!!!
    ​​​​Nice to make a switch to your own stuff sometimes. If it's stuff you want to work on anyway, lol.

    Get to work Doc!

        Hey.... The machine shop I use has a water jet. I see you have a messed up NLA side panel. Maybe this would be a good time to see if he can cut out a gas replacement panel on the water jet......

          Let me know what you need. The tractor should be around for a couple of weeks I would think. I don't have the missing piece of the panel shown in the photograph but we should be able to guess the rest of the shape of the opening.

          Ok. I talked to my water jet guy on Friday. He can't do it. You need a specific head on the jet to do a curved surface, and he doesn't have on yet. Sorry Doc. I can't help you on this one, but those panels are on my list of things I want to recreate!!

        Other than mounting the 60" deck, the 1782 is done. Overall it's a decent tractor that was "too good to part out!" alldone1.jpegalldone2.jpeg
