HI EVERYONE,

PICKED THIS C160 UP IN CT. FROM ANOTHER RS MEMBER. MY FRIEND MARK PAINTED THE HOOD AND FENDERS AND ADDED FIVE COATS OF CLEAR, NEW DECALS AND NORMAL MTNC.

THE STORY FROM THE PREVIOUS OWNER WAS THE TRACTOR HAD BEEN IN STORAGE FOR 19 YEARS. SPINDLE AND STEERING VERY TIGHT.

DAVE WANTED A STACK EXHAUST SO LOOKING AROUND THE GARAGE I USED AN OLD HARLEY MUFFLER. EXHAUST SHOP MADE THE 90 DEGREE RADIUS ELBOW. I FABBED A BRACE AND GAVE THE TRACTOR TO MY SON-IN-LAW. HOPE YOU LIKE THE PIC.

MIKE IN MASS
