A '57 RJ with implements, I wish I could find a haul like that.    :handgestures-thumbupright:

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!

      Here is my early production RJ35. Made probably in the 2nd batch of 1955 tractors, not in the first 100 produced. Has the cast iron steering wheel, gas tank stand and some other early production parts. I added the non original Kohler engine but it should be a Clinton engine.

      Well, most of the regulars here are aware I will be relocating this Spring/Summer. I had hoped to take the remaining collection of tractors with me. However more and more it is becoming obvious that this plan wont work out for numerous reasons. As such, once I make up my mind as to which one to keep, I will be posting the remainder as well as most parts etc up for sale in the Forum Classifieds and CL.
       
      As I hope shows in poll info, I have 2 Stage Blower, Restored 48 & 60 inch(195) decks, 54 inch blade, GT14 style Tiller and a project Sickle Bar. The Sickle BAr can likely be made to work on the GT14 style tractors and the C160.
       
      I enjoy working on them but as I get older I may not have time or ability to do so. As such, maintenance and parts and ease of use of a single tractor are part of the equation.
       
      A couple of these I have poured a lot of time into but I am not emotionally tied to them and I believe if I relocate back east where Grass and tractor need becomes more necessary, I can re-create them.
       
      So help me out with my decision. 
       
      A couple pics of the beasts in question:

      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
