The 36 has a spare tire mounted to the right front fender. It has a rod that runs from the fender to the cab. It is attached at the fender with the use of some hill side washers. These were badly rusted so I got some stainless steel round stock and machined up a couple.

While I was lubing it for the first time in I donít know how many years I could not find one of the lube fittings. Once I found it the fitting I could not see a way to reach it with an oilcan. I removed the switch panel to see if I could reach it through it and this is what I found. All the wiring went through the machine right under the head. Over the years oil had leaked on the wiring and deteriorated the insulation. Some of the wires were exposed and very close together. (see top of photo) I replaced the all the wires and relocated the switch so that the wires would not soak in oil.

After I cleaned and painted the sub-frame I started to put it together. I sandwiched the sub-frame between the table and the pan and tightened it down with rubber washers under the flat washers to seal the pan. Then I lowered the machine onto the bolts and tightened it down. After giving the drain a couple of whacks with a dead blow hammer and it became the lowest point on the pan.

I then cut a radius in the front corners to match the pan. The two larger pieces in the middle are for the machine itself. Then I added a piece of 1/8Ē stock to the out side perimeter to raise the outer edge of the pan. Next I cut a hole for the drain and formed a flange for the drain.

I picked up this 3 in one Smithy off eBay. It is an older model but still in good condition. I donít think that the mill was used much as the grease in the bearings had solidified and I had to repack all the bearings. That part was dot easy as the manual does not cover repair in it. Any how I decided to add a drip pan to it that would allow any oils or coolant to a drain from the pan.. I picked up a garage drip pan at Wal-mart as a start. I had some rectangular steel laying around so I used it to build a sub frame to allow the pan to form toward the drain.
