  1. How can I make these work?

    Well done Glen that is good to know.
  2. How can I make these work?

    I used to use window or door stripping about 1/2 wide that had a sticky side to it rap around a few times or once it made up the difference. No buddy will ever know it is there. It sounds corny but it worked. Also you do not scratch the paint if it is good shape, Just my

  4. Chains /Muffler/ Moons and pulley.

    The Moons are $40 or B.O. 8"and 12" tiers. The muffler is $15.0 With 3/4" thread. I am throwing in the pull handle for the Tecumseh engines. Never used. A pair of 6-12 chains $20.00 or B.O.

  7. A thought for the day.

  8. A thought for the day.

    Richard. Good job on the saves. That`s what I was thinking.
  9. A thought for the day.

  10. A thought for the day.

    Mike better late than never. Enjoy the projects.
  11. A thought for the day.

    Yes Elliot I do enjoy my self. It is always a crowed pleaser When you see a vintage tractor.
  12. A thought for the day.

    As I am working on my last tractor for a while to sell. I had a thought. Of all the production #`s made of these fine tractors. I am thinking mostly 1950`s 60`s and 70`s and maybe 80`s models. How many where saved for the scrap yards. I do know people that have contacts in scrap yards for pick ups when people bring them in. And I think this web site has a lot to do with it. Every time i sell one or meet people I mention this site some times I get [a Really a web site dedicated to the these tractors} So this begs the question how many do you think are saved every day do impart to this web site and scrap yard contacts? Thanks for any response. Enjoy the ride and your day.
