    Need New Tires

    I like the idea of having a contrast between the black tire and the Chrome cap. I would vote for the red wheels, and also for the red stripe around the outside of the hubcap as an accent. Those tires do look pretty wicked. If you're looking for extra traction, get them fluid filled. After that, 10 to 12 pounds of PSI in with the fluid, or just air by itself....and you'll be in great shape.

    I Just Had to Have One

    look up online and see what the ultimate rust breaker is. I think it was something strange like transmission fluid and acetone or power steering fluid and acetone. Something like that. pull the oil drain plug out and leave the pan under it and dump some of your rust breaker in the cylinder whatever it is. if you leave the plug out and the pan under it, cleaned, you can see how much is moving through the engine. if it's moving at all right now, fair chance you'll get that thing running without too much work.

    Not Now! Raider Ten is down no compression.

    You did perfectly fine with that. Parts alone are worth more than what you have in it.

    953 transmission out again 3rd time lol

    Can't trade/the transmissions... They have future homes in Tractors. But if it would help you to see it apart you'd be welcome to run down here or I could snap some pics. Maybe Sunday. Steve has some great videos too.

    Yeah both should be. One is out on the bench already.

    You're welcome man. That's what we're here for. I'm kind of leaning towards @stevasaurus idea about the shift Forks being worn or more likely, the detent ball and spring situation not being quite right. I don't know if it helps your situation at all but I have 2 8 speeds and a 4 speed down here in Hiram that you're welcome to disassemble to poke around in.

    Hey mister man. Good to see you working on this rig. I'll be following along with the progress.

    I Just Had to Have One

    Early Cub is what got me interested in the GT stuff in the first place. My grandfather had a yellow/white one I remember from the 1970s and bought a red (682??) Around 1980. Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out. Please keep us posted. And as always... More. would be awesome.

    That's similar to what Trina was thinking when we met, about me.

    Add Springs To Seat?

    I have a B series and I also have a C series that have been modified using these particular Springs. Keeping in mind I'm not familiar with what the bottom of your particular seat looks like. On the b-series somebody used a piece of plate. Maybe 10 or 11 in square? The seat is bolted to the plate in the center and the plate is bolted to the springs near the outside edges. On my C Series someone used a seat plate from a later model 312 to do basically the same thing. If you need the Springs let me know. I have a couple extra sets.

    Agreed. I'm only forming an educated guess here but I think something in the range of 300 RPM to 350 RPM would be about normal. Maybe even a little bit less. I don't think you'd get closer to 600 engine RPM unless you removed the spark plug.

    you can dump all you want for free in my forest but I'm not sure it would be worth the trip to Maine. Can't be more than a nine or 10 hour drive. That's got to be worth saving 10 bucks. Maybe So I'm curious... Any plans for replanting certain things in the place of those trees?

    You're likely correct.

    Nice tractor there!! Some of us may even be crazzee-err. Careful with the ethanol treatment. I was doing a little light reading a few weeks ago and there those that say it isn't all it's cracked up to be. I know it isn't available to everyone but I've switched over completely to non ethanol gas. Keep the cool pics coming !!
