Thanks I used pieces of tin to cover the hoses.

Very nice looking job. I have done lots of work on snowplowing equipment but most of it was not in good shape like the grader. Most everything I get to fix is completely mangled and the owner wants it "farmerized".

hmmm... being an individual who writes weld repair/rework procedures for feild failures, I do so happen to take some liking to this modifacation.

One question, Can you elaborate on the wire that was used?
My reccomendation for most of my procedures is E71 all position self shielded. and we never run our dual shield out of position other than 2F and 2G. Just curiouse, the welds look great.

Nice job digr. That brings back lots of memories from working the dirt spreads in Alaska from late 70's to early 90's.
Dualshield is great stuff, I think it was pretty new in the early 80's when I first saw it. It works great on earth movers, we used it anywhere we could. Wind was a problem, but otherwise run it up or down or overhead it doesn't care. The tacks are really strong and deep, so you don't have to hold a heavy peice in place a long time for a big slow tack with low hydrogen and it's very ductile. I almost never saw a crack failure, usually ripper shanks and that's about as extreme duty as it gets. Great stuff and really fast build up. Lots of time saved under the hood.

I do have one question, digr.

How come the new parts are yellow instead of your usual morning-after green?
