removed the tin work off the tractor, then pulled the bent up draw bar assembly off, found out why it was all bent up! the first owner had taken the draw bar out and installed it upside down?? why I don't know but (mabe to lower it for some implement?) being upside down it was putting upward force on the side brackets and slide plate bending and splitting them Evil or Very Mad so will need new side brackets and straighten the slide plate.

draw bar pin had an S bend form the draw bar not being square to the pin. sent the side brackets and slide plate to ericks for him to build 2 new side brackets and straighten slide plate. I built new draw bar pin and lock plate primed and painted.

Good morning CMF. The M5 is coming nicely. I've had a similar situation with my favourite U model. Fortunately, the drawbar and associated parts are made from off-the-rack materials. With the help of a parts manual, replacement parts were easy to fabricate. Nice new painted parts sure clean up the back end.
I've been following your progress on the hydraulic setup. My GVI is in about the same shape, so one of these days, I'll have to start on that.
Unrelated question- what is the difference between a Lincoln SA-200, and an SAE-200? My good old welder uses a MH Chrysler engine on an SAE-200. No idle kick down, it runs at a constant speed, and has the dual continuous control set-up. An oldie but goody. unc

good evening unc, the m5 is coming, worked today on the throttle linkage, took the arm plates off the govenor and welded all the worn spots back up to level,(stich and go with mig) put a narrow shim washer in the throttle linkage plate to take up the slop, straightened the rod and now when you move the throttle lever the governor is moving. the sae-200 model # was used for welders built for the military, and export with different engines than the f-162 or 163 continental flathead. also different weld control and wiring. good machines they where basically a sa-200. and that's why they weld so nice unc. you have a keeper there.

got the hydraulic control levers off and hoses and lines disconnected pulled the tank out, found 2 brackets for the charlyn valves laying in the muck in the bottom. one bracket was broken, cleaned everything up and the valves look ok, cleaned up the one good bracket and put it back on the bottom of the valve. those brackets hold the valve steady so they are not flopping all over (that's why the hydraulics were not responding like they should) now got to find another bracket and we will be good to go.



got the hydraulic tank cleaned up, took the filter out of the tank and cleaned it up (was actually pretty clean.) sanded and primed some pieces, levers, piping.

took the manifold off, large hole in it! used my nutcracker so I wouldn't break or bend up the manifold studs. the nutcracker splits the nuts open so you can just take them off with your fingers, and not wreck the threads.

another to do project on the long list Crying or Very sad the power steering is leaking from both ends!! I went to the city today for welder parts, and just for giggles I stopped at the agco dealer (used to be selmac sales) and asked laura at the parts counter about the seals and gaskets for the m5 power steering, gave her the numbers for the m5, a couple of clicks on the computer she had the diagram for the power steering up, checked off the parts we need 2 more clicks she said yes no problem will be here in a week!! sweet! so doing some quick thinking I asked about the 3 rad hoses? 2 more clicks, yes will be here next week! sweet! so I asked about the 3 1" rubber 90's under the hydraulic tank? yes will be here next week!! laura told me she can get Moline parts easier and quicker than allis or massey (their brands!) I was very surprised and very happy Very Happy

so if you own a Moline and need parts give agco and they just might surprise you Laughing

Erick brought the new side brackets and slide plate for the draw bar assembly, we installed them and test fitted everything, fits right on, the side brackets were built of wider angle iron and a plate added to beef them up. and so the bolt holes were not so close to the edge. ground the corners of the new brackets round so I don't cut my head or arms open sliding under the tractor Laughing

the old brackets for comparison



the new brackets prepped and ready for primer!

built a new power plug box for the back of the m5 (missing) and installed 5 pin trailer plug, (original was a 2 pin) the original was live from a 20 amp fuse on the dash, I will have one live circuit the same and one off a switch on the dash for lights. I plan on building a set of lights on magnets like the tow truck drivers use for towing vehicles and have them ready for my disc or cultivator if i'm coming home in the dark. also going to have a smv sign and dot reflector tape on the back of each, i'll be sticking to county back roads not out on any main highways but I still want to be SEEN Laughing

got some work done on the side panels under the hood today, welded up the cracked out bolt holes (vibration cracks) straightened the divots and wrinkles out of them. the 2 small panels by the fuel tank where nasty little buggers to get straight again! got them sanded down and prepped and primered.
