  1. "What's it worth?" 5 tractor mega deal!

    I bought a 16-38 (I think that was the model) for $50 and cleaned the carb and sold it for $450 in two days. Don't discount it. I have made many trips out of state to get a but there was also an ulterior motive. My Dad is in his 80's and it gives us some road trips to remember. I went on one rustlin up to Missouri last year without him and it wasn't the same. Didn't even stay the night. 15 hours round trip. He still talks about the trips from time to time asking if I finished this one or that one. @elliot ness was a real hoot for us both to meet. I may have to sell my D Loader and deliver it so we can have another road trip.... You can't go wrong at a grand.

      Looks like a winner. Moving this summer.... Good news 4 times the room, bad news is too busy for new projects til fall at the earliest.


      Will be trading/selling a couple D's, one running with a loader and the  other is a roller/parts tractor.

    Your attention to detail is admirable.
  5. Did you ever finish painting this beast? We would like to see it in action at least.

  9. He's about my size and will have a nice place to go when the little woman is on a tear.
  10. Poppin a Fuse

    No. I had em bent down. All academic now. Using the bigun.
  11. Poppin a Fuse

    Roger I get that. Make perfect sense. Wonder why it was blowing the fuse in the wire going to battery. Back feeding somehow. Even found another switch and tried it. Same response. so it wasn't the switch.
  12. Poppin a Fuse

    Hmm. I didn't know that. I don't suppose that would have effected it's functionality???
  13. Poppin a Fuse

    Using the A terminal for lights and voltmeter. Well unplugged the regulator and no more poppie. Ran second new line for today, back to poppie. I was using this regulator because the housing had a hole for it. Changed the hookup to the factory regulator and all is happy in the valley. That smaller regulator must be bad. It's now a blower housing ornament. Thanks Richard. You got me in the right direction. Much appreciated!
  14. Poppin a Fuse

    Rebuilt and transplanted a M12 into a C-160. The K341 gave up the ghost and already had been opened to 30 over. Anyway. Had the M12 bored to +.20 and put back together. Ordered a #103991 switch because the other one was for the K341. Fired up fine. I noticed the wire going to the regulator was very hot after just a few minutes. Upon further inspection the wire running from the battery side of the solenoid to the B terminal was melting. Put on a new wire and added a fuse. As soon as the key is turned on, it pops the fuse. Left the fuse out of the B wire and turned key to on and jumped across the solenoid and drove around for a bit. Everything cool and working as it should. Bad switch or have I got something wrong? Picture below. S to Solenoid Switch R to Regulator B to Hot side of solenoid G to Ground M to Magneto
