All bearings and seals are replaced, Damaged gears were replaced by good used and bullgears were reversed for pitting.

You sure do a FIRST RATE job!! But I say no to Black axels, they never were and I don't think they look good. Just my 2cent vote.

Sure looks purty!! Thanks for the pics.

Makes a fellow wonder what the assembly line looked like at the factory rolling off freshly painted tractors back in the day!

Thanks for the comments!
Yes, been going back and forth yellow or black.
Reason I am leaning to black is to give contrast
to red and yellow.

However,lets have all your opinions yellow axles or black

WOW ! It sure looks great , Are you going to take it out in the field and get that that paint job dirty when it is all finished??
I have a question about the P G paint . Does it cover good , or do you have to put on about 5 coats to look good? No matter how many coats you used , it looks better than new!
About the axle colors, If I remember corectly the "U" tractors that I was around when they were new on the lot, did not have any paint on them. They mite of had some kind of coating to keep them from rusting.Thanks for the photos , they are always welcome. clint
