Building a V8 Powered Hotrod Farm Tractor (Part 2)

We're making some real progress on this... Everything amazingly seems to be going as planned, and even tho that old pickup was rusting away for 20 years, it all came apart pretty easily. I'm going to do my absolute best to upload a video of this build every weekend for y'all... How long do YOU think these build serieses should be? :) Interested in A Career In Welding?

Getting an Avani SPC-2000 Welding Fume Extractor
I finally got a fume extractor, aka "Smoke Eater" for the shop from our friends at Avani Environmental. It really does seem like an awesome unit... It's powerful, its simple to use, low maintenance and sounds like a jet engine taking off... I'll be sure to post a full review of this machine after I've spent a few months with it. Thanks for checking out my video everyone, I've got a lot more planned for the near future :) If you're interested in this machine, here are a couple links to it: Avani Environmental home page: http://www.avanienvironmental.com/dev/ SPC-2000 Home Page: http://www.avanienvironmental.com/dev/index.php/products/portable-fume-coll ector/spc-2000

Heather's Welding Project
So, my "sister" Heather and I decided to make some nice little horse-shoe based coat hangers to give as presents to people... I think they turned out really well, and after a few minites of practice with the plasma cutter and a couple grinders, Heather got to do most of the work here by herself. She did great...

HTP "Flex-Head" Mig Gun Unboxing, Installation, and Quick Review
Ever struggled to position your mig gun, and wished you could just bend the neck of it, like you could twist a flex-head tig torch, or bend a stick electrode? Well now you can :) Our new-found friends at HTP America sent out one of their "swan-neck" guns for me to try out, and sent some wire as well. I'd never used one before, but it sure seemed like a cool concept. The gun itself seems like a very nice upgrade... Don't get me wrong, the stock Hobart gun on my 187 was nice, and I never had any problems with it, but this one is even better. Very nice fit and finish, has a well-made feel, and of course, the swan neck bends and moves flawlessly, over 180 degrees. The wire seems to run very well... If you want to watch a comparison between HTP, Lincoln and Hobart MIG wire, just let me know :) Where to look at all HTP America products: http://www.usaweld.com/default.asp The "Swan-Neck" gun that fits my Hobart 187, and other Miller/Hobart machines: http://www.usaweld.com/15-Flexible-Swan-Neck-Gun-fits-Miller-Welders-p/m201 5-fsbe.htm It honestly isnt a bad upgrade, for $137...

Fun With BIG Stick Electrodes: 3/16" 7024-1
These dinosaurs were a lot more common in the days before flux-core, dual shield, short circuit MIG and spray arc took over, but ya know what? They're still out there, they're still fun to run, and they still get it done. I like these larger electrodes... Pretty much the same as the smaller rods, they're just slightly harder to fit into a stinger lead. Oh, and they take a few more amps :P Interested in A Career In Welding?

2013 Gold Cup Ford Flathead Powered John V8 Deere 200 Lawnmower Tractor Nostalgia Drag Racing
Buy Drag Strip Riot Posters! http://www.maziracing.com/2004poster/index.htm August 17-18, 2013 - Third Annual Gold Cup - Empire Dragway I don't know which is cooler. A '37 Ford Flathead stuffed between the frame rails of an early 70s John Deere 200 lawn tractor, or the fact that a then 16-year-old kid from Lottsville, Pennsylvania, designed, built and owns it. I think I'll just roll with both on the equally cool meter. While roaming the pits of the 2013 Gold Cup at Empire Dragway, my husband, Mark, happened upon Todd and Wanda Johnson's pit area and found this uber-unique pit vehicle. It's not like we were at a county fair; it was a Gasser meet, after all. During the between rounds pit visit, Mark was able to get a quick chat in with Todd Johnson who stated that his son, Tyler, built the entire combination and where they were from. Armed with that info, I was able to track Tyler down to find out the "hows and whys" of this project. Me -- "So what was the inspiration behind the this project?" Tyler --"Well, way back in the day, I used to restore and pull old John Deeres. A customer of ours knew this and told my dad that he had an old lawn mower that quit running and was just sitting in his barnyard. He said I was welcome to it and see if I could get it running again. I was 14, maybe 15, when we got it. We brought it home, and I ripped the motor apart only to discover it just wasn't repairable." Me-(chuckling to myself over the "back in the day" response) "And you're how old now?" Tyler --"I'm 23 now." Me- "Okay. So the John Deere engine is a no-go, how did the Flathead come about as a replacement?" Tyler --"About a year before getting the lawnmower, we went to an auction and bought a few Flatheads. One of them was a complete car that we paid 10 bucks for. We were told the car ran when it was parked over four decades earlier, but in reality it was beyond junk. We were surprised it even made it home on the trailer. The closer we got to home, the more the rusted out body kept leaning to one side. We ended up salvaging the engine, rear end and transmission, and scrapped everything else. Those parts sat untouched until one day I drug it into the garage to see if I could get it running. It was just a motor and tranny sitting on the floor with a battery hooked up and some tape holding the spark plug wires together. I sprayed some gas down the carb and hit the starter with some power and it lit right off. That was enough for us to decide that was the motor we wanted to run." "With that in mind, I visited a friend of mine who was already building a Cub Cadet with a V6 and I got the tape measure out to see if it would fit in the John Deere. I measured the John Deere and decided then that we could make his plan work. This was December of 2006. For Christmas, my parents bought me some C Channel for a frame and I started there. However, my mom put a $200 budget cap on the project. I used a rear axle from a mid-80s S-10. I wanted the wheelbase to be as close to original as I could get it, so there's no drive shaft it's just a u-joint instead. I made the rear fenders 4" wider, and it still has the lawnmower front axle (which I want to change soon)." Me --"This is great stuff, Tyler. How long did it take you to build, and what are your future plans?" Tyler -- "I finished building it in 2007 when I was 16, and it didn't quite take a year to build. Progress slowed down when it got to the point of me starting to drive. Right now, I can't run it too long before it overheats, and I want to rebuild it so it has a radiator. But I started working on my Karmann Ghia, and so the lawnmower plans are now on hold." John Deere Ford Flathead V8 Rat Rod





Fixing Travis's Bush Hog
Travis broke one of the vertical supports on his mower so we welded it all up and got it done. We welded with the good ole' stickmate, Hobart 1/8" 6013, running on DCEN with 110 or so amps. We still have to redo where it cracked, but thats a project for another day Interested in A Career In Welding?
