Jim the restorer is a perfectionist. he was a thrill to work with for the years I knew him. he ran into a health problem and the project became too much. he may be around to answer some questions...below are some of his notes. Please reach out with questions. Most importantly I want it to go to the right person. anyone who will love it. as you can see I have 20 thousand plus into this. this tractor cam from a junkyard in ME. then I drove to Canada and bought another tractor for parts. It is almost done......engine is ready to start......I will deliver for cost anywhere in the world.
TRACTOR1958 Porsche Super DieselModel 308LAir cooled 3 cyl with dual plate clutch to control pto's and drive separately. Clutch is connected to the engine with a hydraulic coupling in the flywheel.
Has 4 PTO's: front mounted engine speed, mid belly mount clutch controlled, rear ground speed driven and rear live clutch driven.Transmission: 5 speed w/optional crawler gear(6)
The tractor is on the way to a complete restoration from a junkyard wreck.It was completely disassembled down to the bare castings cleaned and inspected. Every bearing was replaced in the engine and power train. Crank ground and main and rod bearings milled to fit. Cam was welded and reground. New pistons rings and cylinders, and remanufactured cylinder heads, were fitted.
The dual plate clutch rebuilt. Transmission, final drive and PTO drives had all broken or seriously gears replaced. All oil seals were replaces.The engine has been spun (with out compression) to confirm oil pressure.The injectors were rebuilt with new nozzles and new glow plugs were installed.The engine has never been fired do to the need for replacement injector pumps. Tried to repair the originals but too worn. Old pumps are packed ready for shipment to the rebuilder as cores. Pump lifters have been set for new pumps.
All of the instruments and controls were replaced or rebuilt. New (generic) front wiring harness installed. Fuel tank was cleaned and lined with sealant.
Work left to do: (in no special order)order new injector pumpsrepair (remake) foot throttle. No replacements available anywhere (as of last attempt). The part is Model L specific. The part is necessary to make the hand throttle linkage work. I can provide information.The hydraulic 3 point lift was rebuilt but has a leak. The model of the lift doesn't match parts list or repair manual, another model L specific item. I believe the problem is with the o-ring seals in the valve head. Don't match parts book and I used the closest available, but.The hood has not been finished or paintedThe back support rod for the fender seat has not been welded on (made and fitted)All of the 3 point hitch linkage, arms, etc as well as the trailer, tow, hitch are still in unrestored condition.The brakes:Both brake pedals have been broken off No replacements available (as of last attempt) Model L only parts. Have some of the broken parts, some machining and welding required to create replacements.The brake shoes were custom made but have a problem. Old shoes have 1 full lining and 1 short lining. Replacements came with 2 full. Do not fit in drums. Believe cutting lining back on 1 shoe will fix problem, old shoes provided.Flywheel timing marks read on the right side of bell housing, not left as shown in manual.Read operators manual, repair manual (not totally correct for Model L) and parts manual (English) before doing anything.
