What an awesome project !

I've just started tearing into my 854 and I want to thank you for posting all the great pics of your restoration. I'm not even going to try to come close to your level of work but you've made my project a whole lot easier by showing me how it all came apart and went back together.

Thanks again !

Wow, a thread back from the dead.

This is the first time I've seen it. Nice work Brian.

So how does it look now several years later?

Brian sold the tractor to a Kenb and it still looks and drives awesome. I took it for a ride at the show in June when ken bought it. I can tell you that Ken no longer owns it rather a kid named Cole lol... (that is Ken's son)....

Speaking of my sons 854.... I was gathering some firewood to split yesterday across the street from my house yesterday with my sons 854 that I bought from Brian. I was using the Wheel Horse dump cart Stevebo gave to me. I had 150 pounds in it at best. After filling the cart I drove it on over to my house to split the wood on my log splitter. My son comes out and says, Dad, whatcha doin? I says, splittin some wood. He asks, why are you haulin it with my 854 and not the 520? I says, no real reason, I just wanted to run the 854. He says, well, I don't want you haulin wood with MY tractor because I wanna keep it nice and I don't want you breaking it! Alrighty then! She's in good hands Brian! By the way, my son loves the story of the flooded 854. Here she is.

I've seen both and both are sweet. Wish i could have gotten the one, mine is in need of much work. Since I first saw the stainless one at Brian's, I wanted to do that to mine. But after looking at these pics, I don't think it would look nearly as good.
