The routing of the radiator tube is shear genius

That new fabed water pipe mounted & painted same as the engine looks OEM MH33 all the way, great job.

With the heat this year that was a smart move letting the young dude mount the second tire. Those rebuilt rims with fresh paint & new tires are going to look great on the 33. It's getting closer each day.

Thank you guys. I'm pretty happy with the water tube, but the proof will be in the pudding, will the pump be able to suck water all that way up through it.
Today I mounted one wheel on the tractor. It's trued up and tightened.

I don't see a problem with the water tube MM. It should be as good or better than a rubber hose, at least it won't suck closed.

MM - That mounted wheel with the weight on came out top notch.

If the water level in the radiator is above the water pump you will have no problem and the nice fab bends will flow smooth. Much nicer and cleaner than rubber hose.

Yes Bama, one of my concerns from the start was to keep the hose from collapsing. I tried a hose with a spring in it and two things were wrong. It was two big around to fit nicely in there and not touch the fan belt, and, it looked 'era incorrect'.
28, yes the water level in the rad will be a way above the pump.
Those wheels are easier to put on without fluid in them.

MM, That sure looks great with the painted repaired wheels & weights. New tires. You should be real happy with the end results. Getting close to getting some dirt on those new treads.

Thank you guys.
I did a lot of little piddily things today. I could not get the hubs off the back axles to change seals so I put Lucas Oil Treatment in an old grease gun and pumped that sticky oil into the outside bearings of the axle, right near the seals, [first picture]. Then the rest of the Lucas Oil went in the steering box and the transmission, [second pic]. One tierod end was not tight so I took that apart and fixed it, the tapered shank, not the ball and socket. Then I greased everything I could find, including installing a grease nipple in a steering U-joint, [not a fun job], and greasing it.
