That is a nice haul. I have to leave my wife when I go to look at anything used. Comments and the dagger stares are too much for my tired ole bones.

That could be a good negotiating strategy though, get the seller to feel sympathetic!    :ROTF:

If I see something I want to buy on CL for example, I ask my wife if she want's to go out to lunch. Her response is " Where is this tractor? " :ROTF:

Lunch at Costco -  $1.50 each; gas - variable depending on WH location; Another WH in the stable - Priceless...

I've bought 2 tractors and numerous other WH items near Rush NY in the past 3 yrs. There's a little beat up diner along the way with great food. I say " Wanna go to lunch at Georges? " 497109581avatar.gif.f9b51061a911b4d88074

Before my Mom passed we would go up to central NY three of four times a year to spend time with her, if the :techie-ebay: gods were smiling on me I would hook up the trailer the night before; funny how the wife would figure out what was going on and ask the same question.   :ROTF:

I still find myself searching the ads whenever we're going on a roadtrip, though I haven't ever brought anything big home with me... yet!

      Picked this up today and I'm very happy with it!! Early 1956 RJ35 with cast iron steering wheel. Down the road I will be tiring this into a 1955 RJ! Thanks Shawn!! What does everyone think? Definitely a project but definitely a restoreable one!

      Hi, I'm rebuilding an RJ-58 tranny and its all together except the left side cover will not go on because the brake shaft is not lining up with the bearing. Its off by about 1/16th of an inch. The bearing on the other side cover is not cocked. The only parts that are not original in the tranny is the big differential gear and a couple bearings but they are the correct size bearings. It is the correct gear, its just out of another unit. Same part number and everything-3502. Did those big gears vary slightly in size during production? because it seems like if the big gear was about 1/16 smaller, I would be able to push the gears together and the cover would slight right on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

      As you can see, I don't need much of a reason to take the RJ for a spin!
