The frame has been blasted cracks welded pitting bonded primed and painted. Everything has been removed and blasted primed and painted with JD paint and hardener. I am amazed how much better the paint looks with the hardener in it all i have to do is paint the fenders, seat, fix a crack in the hood and paint it. I went through the entire parts catalog and ordered all stainless fasteners which should be here this week. When i start putting it all back together is there anything that needs to be done in a particular order? I will probably just go in the reverse order that i took it apart in unless there is something crazy that I need to look out for.

Where everything goes! I'm finding my memory isn't what it used to be,when it comes to reassembling. Luckily I have a second tractor to reference from

I have a good portion of it assembled, still have the engine, electrical, and tranny to install. on the engine i am obviously painting all of the tins/shrouds green but what color was the engine and head from the factory? I thought about painting the block satin engine black and the tins jd green for some contrast but who knows.

I want to replace the head bolts, hardened washers, and belleville washers with new, according to jdparts they are a grade 8 bolt will any grade 8 bolt work as long as it matches the lengths?

Are you sure they are not grade 5s? Yes you can use any bolt of the proper length, threads and strength. I find when I need grade 5 and 8 bolts my JD dealer is cheaper than most of the other local sources. If I buy the pound the local farm store is cheaper but you have to buy at least one pounds worth.
