good evening all a few weeks back bob lee from Kansas put a post on about cleaning up a farm site, he picked up a case tractor and a really cool old wagon among other things he mentioned finding a Minneapolis Moline manifold brand new that had been thrown in the metal dumpster! bob climbed in and retrieved it. this turned out to be new old stock and fit my m5, a few messages and emails back and forth, a couple of phone calls and I sent bob the money, he shipped from Kansas on april 13th and it arrived here this afternoon! bobs shipping and packaging skills ensured it arrived in one piece in great shape! thank you bob, i'm going to be putting this manifold on miss minne and the manifold I got from stieners will go in the box for the rebuild on miss minne's sister! it is things like this that make y.t. such a great site, guys like bob going that extra mile (and a little dumpster diving) are what make it work for all of us. thanks again bob.

working on the m5 today, retorqued the heads, reset valves @ 12 and 18, resealed the power steering, ran in to an issue with the snap rings that hold the end plates in place. I believe they are original and a lot of wear on them with ridges that are quite pronounced, the end plates will be loose using the old ones so will order new ones tomorrow morning. have been working along prepping and painting. got the hood, fenders, tool box and fuel tank left to prep and paint. I should start reassembly this week (now where did that go??) some pics of the progress.

got a bit more done on the m-5 today, still waiting on the snap rings for the power steering caps. installed all the hydraulic hoses for the 2 remotes, put the tank and levers back on, installed the electrical plug, and the rebuilt draw bar brackets and draw bar. the draw bar is now sitting center on the tractor not off to one side from the old bent broken side brackets. installed the manifold, it's nice to be finally putting it back toghter Laughing

She's looking pretty smart with that new paint on her! I'm really looking forward to seeing her sparkle in the sun!
