After a parts gathering day in town and acquiring a parts Perkins motor for a Cockshutt 40 diesel that is also getting whipped into shape, I took the final brake drum off the Ferguson and washed the whole wheel area. The brakes looked good.
pic one is the grease nipple in the brake pedal pivot.
pic two is the right hand side brakes.

Looks good.
Was the axle seal leaking?

Yes OI, a wee bit. I'm hoping that if I add some Lucas sealer to the rear-end oil I'll be OK. The other side was all right, so I didn't order any seals.

I took the chin piece off and beat on it some more. It was easier to straighten out the side lower pieces without it. There were many little and a few bigger dings in the front at the top so I beat on the whole thing today. The last picture is the chin back on and welded there at the crank hole. It wasn't supposed to come apart there but it was broken.

Looks like your beatin lead it into submission. That's probably some pretty thick steel.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Thank you Dozer. With heavier tin, I just use a heavier hammer. The best I can do is get the tin close enough to flat so it's safe to use body filler.

It's been so rainy here that I can't use my big pile of outside sand, so I went to town and bought some bags of sandblasting sand. So here's the hood two thirds done and some body filling done.
