Non woodworking project (pic heavy) updated
My shop has been invaded. Nephew and I are completely redoing his 1800 Oliver farm tractor. Along the way its also getting a heart transplant. Getting rid of the original Waukesha 6 Cylinder gas engine (roughly 80 HP) and replacing it with a 1988 12 valve 5.9 Cummins. Of course since its this far along, new seals everywhere and paint while we are at it
Wade sitting next to whats left after the tear down, Thats just the transmission and rear end left. otice the poor woodworking tools have been shoved aside.
PTO has been removed along with the Rock shaft and load sensing for the 3 point hitch. Top left of the photo you see a white thing on the floor, that,s the wheel center. Solid cast and weigh about 500 pounds each
The new engine tub. The 5.9 won't fit in the Waukesha without extensive modifications. The replacement is from and 1850 Oliver that comes with a Perkins.
One of the Bearings out of the Tricycle front end steering. I think its junk Its getting new upper and lower bearings and seals
This is the tower for the steering. The bearing in the previous pic came from the bottom end of this
The new heart!! 1988 5.9 12 valve Cummins 180HP Cleaned up and ready for paint
Of course this meant some new tools, like the sandblast cabinet in the background and a new portable air compressor. Yes that was a tool gloat
New Clutch, pressure plate, PTO drive hub and flywheel where installed. These parts are all new. Since this engine was never offered in this tractor the parts where Supplied by AGCO and come from a White 140. Also had to change the flywheel housing so we had something to bolt the rear mounts to. It came from a Gradall forklift
Front cover was removed and fixed the Killer dowel pin. It's a lineup pin in the case that can come loose and fall into the timing gears. Not a good thing. Also had to add the side filler neck, Change the fan hub out, the tension bracket is different. Also had to get a shorter dipstick and the lower water neck has to be changed. Those parts where all Cummins. The round cover on the front gets changed out also. The Tach drive hooks up there. More Cummins supplied parts.
Lower right you can see one of the motor mounts we had to build
Right front mount. The big hole above it is where the new water neck goes
Final test fit. Everything lines up and bolted down. Of course it still has to come back out so I can run the new power steering and hydra power lines. Then paint the inside of the tub and the sides of the engine. you can also see the right rear engine mount I had to make.
Final test fit. The critical part is getting the PTO shaft lined up. If it isn't right bad things happen. Thats the PTO shaft in the middle. It's has splines in 3 places, First its has splines in the back of the flywheel at the PTO hub so it turns all the time, Then it has splines in the middle for the hydraulic pump drive and lastly it has splines in the PTO.

Throw Apples out the Windows, but make sure not to hit the Penguin.
If the world should blow itself up, the last audible voice would be that of an expert saying it canít be done.
