    Well, I finally got the 857 I bought at the auction in Charlottesville going. I lightly sanded it and clear coated. After getting the engine back together and timed correctly, she is purring like a kitten - very little knock now - it was way out of time (thanks @oldredrider!). I drove it around enough to check it out and it runs great in all gears, idles down nicely, and doesn't seem to smoke any that I can tell, except a little at start up. Below are a few pics including a before and a couple that look a little like something from @AMC RULES. I think I'm going to put on the deck I got last fall and look at the show for a lawn ranger deck for Emory.

    STORY NUMBER ONE Many years ago, Al Capone virtually owned Chicago. Capone wasn't famous for anything heroic. He was notorious for enmeshing the windy city in everything from bootlegged booze to prostitution to murder. Capone had a lawyer nicknamed 'Easy Eddie.' He was Capone's lawyer for a good reason. Eddie was very good! In fact, Eddie's skill at legal maneuvering kept Big Al out of jail for a long time. To show his appreciation, Capone paid him very well. Not only was the money big, but Eddie got special dividends, as well. For instance, he and his family occupied a fenced-in mansion with live-in help and all of the conveniences of the day. The estate was so large that it filled an entire Chicago City block. Eddie lived the high life of the Chicago mob and gave little consideration to the atrocity that went on around him. Eddie did have one soft spot, however. He had a son that he loved dearly. Eddie saw to it that his young son had clothes, cars, and a good education. Nothing was withheld. Price was no object. And, despite his involvement with organized crime, Eddie even tried to teach him right from wrong. Eddie wanted his son to be a better man than he was Yet, with all his wealth and influence, there were two things he couldn't give his son; he couldn't pass on a good name or a good example. One day, Easy Eddie reached a difficult decision. Easy Eddie wanted to rectify wrongs he had done. He decided he would go to the authorities and tell the truth about Al 'Scarface' Capone, clean up his tarnished name, and offer his son some semblance of integrity. To do this, he would have to testify against The Mob, and he knew that the cost would be great. So, he testified. Within the year, Easy Eddie's life ended in a blaze of gunfire on a lonely Chicago Street. But in his eyes, he had given his son the greatest gift he had to offer, at the greatest price he could ever pay. Police removed from his pockets a rosary, a crucifix, a religious medallion, and a poem clipped from a magazine. The poem read: 'The clock of life is wound but once, and no man has the power to tell just when the hands will stop, at late or early hour. Now is the only time you own. Live, love, toil with a will. Place no faith in time. For the clock may soon be still.' STORY NUMBER TWO World War II produced many heroes. One such man was Lieutenant Commander Butch O'Hare. He was a fighter pilot assigned to the aircraft carrierUSS Lexington in the South Pacific. One day his entire squadron was sent on a mission. After he was airborne, he looked at his fuel gauge and realized that someone had forgotten to top off his fuel tank He would not have enough fuel to complete his mission and get back to his ship. His flight leader told him to return to the carrier. Reluctantly, he dropped out of formation and headed back to the fleet. As he was returning to the mother ship, he saw something that turned his blood cold; a squadron of Japanese aircraft was speeding its way toward the American fleet. The American fighters were gone on a sortie, and the fleet was all but defenseless. He couldn't reach his squadron and bring them back in time to save the fleet. Nor could he warn the fleet of the approaching danger. There was only one thing to do. He must somehow divert them from the fleet. Laying aside all thoughts of personal safety, he dove into the formation of Japanese planes. Wing-mounted 50 caliber guns blazed as he charged in, attacking one surprised enemy plane and then another. Butch wove in and out of the now broken formation and fired at as many planes as possible until all his ammunition was finally spent. Undaunted, he continued the assault. He dived at the planes, trying to clip a wing or tail in hopes of damaging as many enemy planes as possible, rendering them unfit to fly. Finally, the exasperated Japanese squadron took off in another direction. Deeply relieved, Butch O'Hare and his tattered fighter limped back to the carrier. Upon arrival, he reported in and related the event surrounding his return. The film from the gun-camera mounted on his plane told the tale. It showed the extent of Butch's daring attempt to protect his fleet. He had, in fact, destroyed five enemy aircraft. This took place on February 20, 1942, and for that action Butch became the Navy's first Ace of WWII, and the first Naval Aviator to win the Congressional Medal of Honor. A year later Butch was killed in aerial combat at the age of 29. His home town would not allow the memory of this WW II hero to fade, and today, O'Hare Airport in Chicago is named in tribute to the courage of this great man. So, the next time you find yourself at O'Hare International, give some thought to visiting Butch's memorial displaying his statue and his Medal of Honor. It's located between Terminals 1 and 2. SO WHAT DO THESE TWO STORIES HAVE TO DO WITH EACH OTHER? Butch O'Hare was 'Easy Eddie's' son.

    I realize this is against all wheel horse policy but - my nephew really wanted a “Tractor Mac” book themed Tractor. So naturally out came the paint and I vandalized the 310.

    Ok, a weather update. Wednesday afternoon. 3:40, got the C-175 out with my Mike on the controls. Its snowing to beat the band, but its the wetest heaviest slop I have seen in a long time. Put the chains back on and said to Mike have at it. So heres just a few pics of him pushing about 3 inches of slop. The snowthrower would gag on this. Its plowing material. Plus the THUNDER in the sky is like a summer storm. Good thing I have this machine still. Will post a few more pictures later. Hope everyone is good. Winter is far from over here right now. Btw, no more fun than seat time on his horse. Glenn

    So I visit another forum that I belong to but don’t frequent there often (6 replies) . The first thing for topics was donations so I read that and basically the same as our site. The next new topic was under politics (With no moderation) so I read a couple and didn’t like what I was reading so I made a post. I simply said I wouldn’t donate $ to the site , lend any of my knowledge or information of N.O.S. parts that I have as long as there was a political views on the forum. .... I was called a TARD , TROLL , told to leave , go back to that green tractor site , don’t let the door hit me in the @z$ . This was from 3 or 4 different people within ten minuets. Couldn’t defend myself fast enough and they didn’t care if I was there . So I kindly told them that this “TARD” was leaving. I know I didn’t have to read the politics section or even post (I’m sorry I did) but I just gave my opinion . So I just wanted to thank @nylyon Karl @Sparky Mike and the rest of the MOD’s for keeping clean and family friendly. This is truly the best forum on the net .

    it's hard to believe I've worked for the same company for 40 years. I've done numerous jobs over the years. Started as a Coal Plant Construction Inspector in 1978. Worked around the steam plants, got into performance testing, project management and then got wet (more than once) working various design, technical support and supervisory roles at the six hydro dams. I've been a "Dam Guy" for about 30 years. For years I've said I needed one of those Maytag repair man posters of the old guy looking for something to do, for my office. Unlike the Maytag guy the phone and now the emails never slow down around here, The dams sit in the flash flood prone Texas Hill Country section of our Texas Colorado river. it crazy that a flood has become the rare time that everyone focuses on one priority vs. the normal daily routine of too many phone calls and emails. Today I push a keyboard, and work on budgets as much as I actually get to do technical work these days. Today I got in the truck and visited the guys at several of the dams, had a nice lunch with some of them and stopped at one more dam before heading home. Almost as good a day as seat time on a tractor! That retirement light at the end of the tunnel is getting bright, I not sure if I'll make 41 years here! I won't make the big show this year, but I'm thinking there will be one less big thing holding me back next year.

    Hey guys, I logged on yesterday for the first time in several months and was inspired by Dells68 and Crazywheelhorseman to post my find from last summer. Short story: I bought an 876 off of craigslist a couple weeks after coming home from the WHCC show last year. My 1st child came a little early, so I stuck the tractor in the shed and haven’t touched it since. Don’t have plans to touch it for now, but I’m glad I bought it! Long story: I went to the wheel horse show in PA last year and managed to hold off on buying a short frame that I was really jonesing for. There were several there, but Richard’s 857 with the dual wheels was really calling my name. Anyways, I held off because my wife was about 7.5 months pregnant and it wasn’t the responsible thing to do. After all, this was going to be my last WHCC show for a little bit, and I had already sold my other 3 short frames and a gravely walk behind in the spirit “growing up”. Well folks, It only took 2 weeks. While surfing craigslist on my lunch break an ad popped up for an 876 in Richmond, VA. There were no pictures, but it said that it had original paint and ran when it was last parked in the storage shed 10 years ago. The only implement it came with was a disc set. Not sure what brand it was. The price was $225 for everything, so I figured that was good enough to take the gamble. I checked the oil and tightened the alternator belt on the ol’ horse hauler (1984 toyota pickup) and headed north…well started to head north….I didn’t get but about 2 miles down the road and noticed the truck was running a little hot. What? How could this be? It’s a Toyota, that’s not supposed to happen. I thought, eh, “It’s all highway, I’m sure it will be fine.” Stupid. This is what happens when you have your mind set on a wheel horse. I mean, I’ve built a couple different chevy motors for my project vehicles. I work at a transmission manufacturer. I’m not new when it comes to motors/cars/maintenance. And when it comes to overheating, I knew with all of my being that it should be addressed very soon. bad bad things might result if an over heating problem is not addressed SOON. Clearly, I was not thinking rationally. So anyways, like I said, I headed north. It was an uneventful 2.5 hour trip up there until I got off on the exit where the WH was located. The temperature needle creeped closer and closer to the red line and as soon as I pulled into the guys neighborhood I cut the engine and coasted to his driveway. I thought, no big deal, I’ll get this thing and head home. I was there for literally 30 seconds and the guy starts wheeling the tractor to my truck…whoa whoa whoa…wait a second, let me at least pop the hood before we load it up. It definitely was not what I imagined. The seat was torn, the choke and throttle cables were frozen, it didn't run (which I knew going up there), fluid was leaking from the axles, and to top it all off, one of the sidewalls on the rear tire blew as he was rolling it towards my truck. After talking for a few minutes, it was clear that he wasn’t coming much off the price. More worried about actually making it home, I decided to just pay him and get the heck out of there. The truck started fine, and I was able to get on the highway before it got into the red. I plugged in my address (well, what I thought was my address) and headed….north… Fortunately, because I’m so smart, I realized that I was driving north. Now I’m not the brightest cookie in the jar, but I know that if I had just driven 2.5 hours north, I needed to at least go 2.5 hours south. After realizing the GPS was going to my exact address, just in a different state, I corrected the issue and turned towards home. About the time I got the truck turned around, the battery light came on…. Great… OK, no big deal. I knew the belt was on the fritz when I started this trip, so I came prepared with the tools. By this time it was about 8:45pm and I knew time was running out if I wanted to make it to the auto parts store before they closed. So I picked the closest parts store to the highway and headed that direction. I arrived at autozone around 9:00 (they close at 9:30) and I popped the hood. Much to my dismay, the alternator belt was intact. Awesome. Who’s Idea was it to drive this truck, knowing it needed maintenance, on a 6 hour round trip during the work week? Oh yeah… mine. Genius. Anyways, I head inside with my fingers crossed that they have an alternator. Of course they didn’t. The only alternator in town is 30 minutes in the other direction. There was no way I was going to make it there before it closed. No problem, I have a plan B. My truck is carbureted and doesn’t have too many things that run off of electricity, so I’ll try to make it home on batteries. So I bought 2 batteries, a new belt (just in case), some coolant, a new thermostat, gasket sealer, and a bottle of water and headed out the door. I started the truck and got back on the highway. Only 140 miles to go. I called my wife and told her that I was going to turn my phone off because of course I didn’t bring a phone charger. At this point, I was so mad at myself, that she just told me to get home as safely and quickly as possible and she would see me when I got there. The truck battery that was in the truck lasted all the way to the house! I was amazed. The headlights didn’t dim but just a little bit, but by the end of the trip the electronic ignition was acting funny and the horn was really weak. I rolled in at about 12:15am and went straight to bed. So the moral of this story is: Don’t do stupid things. I am looking forward to getting it running and preserving the great patina! I have since sold the disc set for 75 bucks, so ended up having 145 in it (not counting gas, of course). Anyways, here are the pictures I took last summer.

    I know I've told you all that I bought the 418-A a few years ago just for the cab then flipped it, well the guy I sold it to works at a local paint supplier and while I was there lining up some paint for a couple projects I asked how the resto turned out and he sent me some pics enjoy, @PeacemakerJack, maybe this will be some inspiration on "Jack Rabbit", @Vinylguy I'm pretty sure the decals came from you for both 418 and 520, I reckon I need to spruce up my 2 or 3?, Jeff.

    I found it on Facebook and I bought it. I believe I over paid a little, but I wanted it. She has a leak in the hydraulics, I haven't investigate that yet but I think it's coming from the pump. Missing the plate below the gear shift that covers the pump. Needs new headlights lenses, I sent a check out this morning to Mr. Glen Pettit. It's also missing the tag that shows the shift pattern along with the serial number. Can the serial number be found someplace else on the tractor?

    Every year I try to do something for our support members who are going to the big show in PA. I usually get started a bit sooner than this but we still have time. This idea came to me a few weeks ago and I finally got busy and came up with a plan. I thought it would be fun to make trading cards that we can swap with other members. They will be 3 x 5 which is a bit larger than a sports card but not too large. Since these cards are about us as support members your picture must have you in it. Does not matter what else is in the picture as long as you are in it. Keep it family friendly though. Along with your picture please pm me your info for the back of the card. You do not need to give your phone or email but remember these are your cards and only the members you trade with would have your contact info anyway. I will need your fist and last names so send me a PM with your info and picture. The proof I post on this thread will not show your name or any personal info just your username and member number on the front. The back of my card is just an example. You can share the info you want. Each support member who posts and is coming to the show will get 25 cards free of charge of course as a thank you for your support. Last year we had over 50 members post for a banner but I had about 10 no shows Again these cards are free to the members who pick them up at the show this year but sometimes things mess up our plans. If that happens you can contact me and I will package and ship them to you for $10 to cover the cost. If you are not sure yet if you are going to the show please wait to order when you are sure. Once you post the image you want I will post a proof back but will not post the back of the card with any contact info. Any personal info will be sent to you in a PM I think we are somewhere around 200 support members now and I would love to see all of you at the show this year. That's a lot of trading cards though so maybe not. You're all worth it though.

    Thanks Jeff! We run a tight ship here and I think it has made for a great forum with little to no drama. Unfortunately certain subjects bring out the most passionate responses, religion...politics...taxes..etc, from people and that passion (and defending that passion) can quickly get very heated. Soon people who were friends discover they have different opinions and the next thing you know they are enemies.

    A police officer pulls over a speeding car. The officer says, "I clocked you at 80 miles per hour, sir." The driver says, "Goodness, officer, I had it on cruise control at 60; perhaps your radar gun needs calibrating." Not looking up from her knitting the wife says: "Now don't be silly, dear -- you know that this car doesn't have cruise control" As the officer writes out the ticket, the driver looks over at his wife and growls, "Can't you please keep your mouth shut for once!!?" The wife smiles demurely and says, "Well dear you should be thankful your radar detector went off when it did or your speed would have been higher. As the officer makes out the second ticket for the illegal radar detector unit, the man glowers at his wife and says through clenched teeth, "Woman, can't you keep your mouth shut?" The officer frowns and says, "And I notice that you're not wearing your seat belt, sir. That's an automatic $75 fine." The driver says, "Yeah, well, you see, officer, I had it on, but I took it off when you pulled me over so that I could get my license out of my back pocket." The wife says, "Now, dear, you know very well that you didn't have your seat belt on. You never wear your seat belt when you're driving." And as the police officer is writing out the third ticket, the driver turns to his wife and barks, "WILL YOU PLEASE SHUT UP??" The officer looks over at the woman and asks, "Does your husband always talk to you this way, Ma'am? I love this part....... "Only when he's been drinking." NOW THIS IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF HAPPY WIFE HAPPY LIFE

    These are two RJ 58s I picked up from a gentleman near me. I got them for 400 and the nicer of the two is a runner while the other is a roller. The roller is likely going to be a future project. Not sure about the runner but I wanted the deck for my first 58. The seller is a new member here and has some nice tractors in his stable. Hopefully he will chime in. I encouraged him to become a supporter. What do you think guys?

    Frequently moving charger around to different tractors and finding a place to set it so the cord would reach the receptacle and battery without tripping on it, I decided something needed to be done. AHA, some used wire fence post and a couple of wheels solved the problem. Marv

    I will rebuild your K91, K141, K161, K181, K241, K301, K321 and K341 cast iron kohler engine for 200.00 plus parts and machine work if required. In most cases cylinder will be bored, crank will be ground, valve seats ground or reconditioned. New piston, new rings, new rod, valves new or reconditioned, all new seals and gaskets. Entire engine brought back to factory spec. I no longer do performance/pulling engines. If your old Kohler is knocking or smoking it's most likely time for a rebuild before it locks up on you. Once rebuilt, and properly maintained, it will give you another 30-40 years of service. I don't cut corners, I take my time and get it right. 40 plus years of working on and rebuilding k series engines. PM me for details or questions. I currently have a k341 and k321 that are done and on the shelf ready to be installed.

    I have a problem with short frame square hood tractors lol bought an 867 today. The last 2 horses have been short fame square hoods, the other one being an 857. I just love the 8hp kohler engines! A restoration is in order for this bad boy at some point.

    Well, I'm having coyote problems on the farm. One howled at me a couple of weekends ago from about 30 yards above me on a ridge. Now, I'm trying to trap them with steel traps. Boogers are pretty sharp - they've robbed one of my sets about 4 nights and tripped the trap twice and no luck catching them. Anyway, Emory rode his blackhood with me to check them today. He had a blast (he gets a little serious as you can see by the look on his face). He's a little too light to get traction real well on uneven ground. I found a set of nos Trac weights on fleabay for only about $44 shipped. They look to have never even been filled. Hopefully it will help him go a little better!

    Nope, we didn't get any snow and I haven't used the blower for 2 years. But the week long rains ended today so I got a few tractors out to charge the batteries. Then I noticed the roller and thought why not put them to work since they are already running. I got about 1/2 hour seat time on each one rolling the lawn. The turfs did great on the flats but I needed the chained up 520 for the steep areas.

    Afternoon everybody, I finished the repair on the first of two Briggs V-Twin Inteks I posted about in "other brands". The guy said I could have a running 310-8 with a 36" rd deck for fixing his Husqvarnas. I dropped off the first Husqvarna and he told me to take the 310 home... in the pics its the yellow seat. Then today I get a call from the son in law of an old guy that use to have a ton of mowers for sale and stuff a couple streets over on Rt 6. Seems the old guy who has been sick died and there cleaning up. He told me to come get a pair of 310s free. I did and there rough. One has a trans with hi/lo stuck in between and other has carb etc... all apart. May make one out of two. Tony

BUT!!!...I can top that. Again I drove to the Big Show 684 mi (1368 mi round trip)...picked up a round hood for Ryan in Minnesota, and delivered the horse to him at the La Sueur show 743 mi (1486 mi round trip) for a grand total of 2854 miles.

Thank you to the Mods yes, and to everyone else who makes this site what it is.

    My next door neighbor (retired engineer) had one of those rear engined professional Gravely's. He was trying to drag a large crate he built (did I say he was a retired engineer? ) full of junk to the side of the road. He got about 4 feet and stopped. All he could do was pop wheelies as that crate dug in. I heard him banging his snowplow blade on his driveway everytime the front end came down. I told him to stop before he got hurt or wrecked something. (did I mention he's a retired engineer?) I came back with my Power King and had him unhook his "toy" . Latched on to the crate put it in first and at idle I dragged that crate to the road. His jaw was on the ground. He has since sold the Gravely and now is into solar panels to recharge his cordless tools.

    Brought home this 516 last year with a locked Eaton 700. Changed out the 700 with an 1100 and decided to cut a hole in the hood. I always been partial to those Mopars with the shaker hoods. Though it would be cool on a WH. the machine need a little more work, next in line to finish.

    C120 Frank-n-Tractor Picked up this 74 C120 for parts. When I got it to the shop I started to take a closer look and under all the rust there was some good bones. I also picked up a fake M12 Kohler, (one of those marked 301 that has a 10hp bore), that needed some love. Working on the engine and ready to test run, I decided to put the engine on the C120 and maybe, at the same time, see if the hydro transmission was good. The M10 was a carburetor nightmare. It had a Walbo fixed jet that would flood at will, sometimes run perfect then the float would stick open and the smoke rolled. New float components just lessened the problem slightly. Ended up changing the carb using one from a Kohler K301. Ran fine and the test of the hydro proved it was in great shape. With all that, I decided to fixer up a bit, kind of a tinker project. Changed the broken steering wheel, change left rear tire, (all tires hold air now), install a Briggs wiring harness, cabbaged some seat supports from the junk pile and added a newer seat pan from a GT1100. The old seat pan was BER. One of the owners had installed slide latches and mounted wooden blocks on foot rest to support the old seat pan. Creative! The dawg gone thing runs good! Not sure what I am going to do with it but it is a hobby. I’ll post more photos as I get more time to tinker with it.

    Sadly these were his only two....... Briggs man he says not Kohlers ...free country I says ... I did leave my card with him in case he should happen to come across more! This was one of those rare CL scores that one actually enjoys. I could have spent hours chatting with the seller about old iron, cars, tools and what not. He even had a couple of Lennox furnaces in his basement so since he was a very nice gentleman I took a peek at them for him and gave him a couple of furnace filters off the truck. He even let me snap a few of his mind blowing collection. last pic is a water cooled one. Here is that genny Dan he said was made in Oshkosh. Pretty sure it's 12VDC the water cooled one above. Had a nice little collection of outboards I asked him if he took these to shows, he says he has a enclosed with flip open sides for display. Most are meticulously restored and run but he did have quite a few originals tho. The shelves had mirrors in back of them with cool lighting. He said he worked his way through high school and college in a lawn & garden shop and that's when he started collecting. I'd guess him to be mid 70's in age. Super good guy.
