It's really coming together for you Ryan.
It looks good and it'll be running before you realize it.  And then WE want a picture of your expression when you pull that starter rod!!

Hopefully next week will have tractor running just waiting on a muffler now. Was going to buy a new one but the boneyard near me has a gleaner d17 motor on the skid still out of combine and looks good and has good muffler and Vinson manifold for cheap. . So going to wait till pay day next week and get that. Maybe do a gleaner powered puller like sugarmaker is working on. My thought where to do wd and strip it down to extreme lightweight class. I will get new muffler when I repaint tractor but for now use what I will have. But Tractor is coming along good just anxious to get it started and make sure everything gets lubed up and no problems. Then next thing will be to do electrical system which will be 12v with one wire alternator found a awesome wire harness from brillman at good price looks original and wired for the one wire. Plus I think headlights will get led inserts under the glass bulb. Look old but new. So hopefully will have a awesome update next week. Hope everyone had a great new years

Ryan,
Your getting there! Somedays it seems like not much is happening. Also sounds like you have another potential project. If you can find a styled WC that seems to be the hot set up to get the weight down as much as possible for the Z engine. Looking forward to your updates.
 Regards,
 Chris

It runs good had it running for over an hour today. Fired right up everything sounded great. A little louder exhaust wise but I’m the barn. Has a small manifold leak cause the far corner is rusted a little so might put an extra gasket in or get new manifold. Drove it around the yard feels very powerful compared to ones I had in the past. You can dump clutch and it doesn’t stutter just goes. Next I guess is work on the electrical system which needs to be completely replaced cause every bit of it is junk. Am very happy with how it turned out. Will put up a video when find out how.


Ryan

Ryan,
 Congratulations on your WD45 engine overhaul! Looking forward to the video too. Those manifolds get washed out on the ends. That's pretty common. A machine shop can true it up for you.
Regards,
