    702 loader

    I seem to remember Joe Harris telling me he got one of those several years back.... same one? Can't be too many of them here in the midwest!
  2. FYI if those are labeled correctly... you should have a K141 (6.25HP)and K161 (7HP). Very nice garages sale score. Always good when you can pick up some vintage K-series at a good price.

    Rebuild or buy new starter/generator

    Exactly this .... I'd check with a local Napa repair shop or really any local garage on recommendations. Those guys will know who can and will do the best job at the best price. If you can't or don't want to do that, then let your fingers do the walkin' In the yellow pages look under "Auto Electric" or "Auto Electrical" there should be some places listed that can do that work.

    Foot rest pads

    Hey Steve, I got a hold of Eldon and he said he sold the kitchen store and website. He still is selling his parts on ebay. Here's his vendor page. https://www.m.ebay.com/sch/i.html?sid=classickitchensandmoreyork&isRefine=true&_pgn=1

    Barn find 1047

    You could definitely say that. There are quite a few names in that thread that have lost touch or hobby interests have changed over the years, but you can see what made this forum great even way back then... the people and the camaraderie. That's what has ALWAYS set this forum apart from so many others. Your never know what you'll find if you go looking in the basement (old threads) here. Sadly so many pictures have been lost over the years from outside hosting... we didn't used to have quite the capability we do now. Luckily the ones in that thread are all still there! Knowing Pat it was probably sold or traded for another Horse! 10 years later.... who knows how many times it changed hands and what happened to it. Will be awesome to see it resurrected @bellevillerod As you can see it was loved when it was built. Looking forward to the updates.

    Barn find 1047

    Pat built that tractor and documented here. I haven't seen Pat around the forum in years. He was a Hoosier with a somewhat large herd, but I think like many members that disappear, family needed to come first and he hasn't made his way back.

    Just paint it where it is. Sounds like a nextguy problem to me.

    Wheel horse 603

    It also is the only model to use lever choke and throttle controls on the dash tower. It should have a full hood like a 604/654/704 but use the older 61-62 front axle. The front of the frame should be flat, not bumped out like the rest of the 63 models that used the new axle. It also had long cast iron foot rests instead of the stirrup style.

    Add Springs To Seat?

    I added those same springs to my 68 Raider 9, and it's made for a much nicer ride and just a smidge more leg-room.

    White Wall tires. 1968 Indy 500

    @TDF5G You know you quoted a 3 year old post there? If you're asking if the white wall tires really existed, yes. Just plug white wall into the search engine. There have been a few topics on them over the years. They're rare, but there are still some out there from the Gasoline Alley pit tractor days.

    App for iPad or Other Mobile Devices.

    Tapatalk was great for a while, but like any app it kept being constantly updated, which wouldn't work with the forum software we use, or one of the add-ins like the member map, or classifieds... .it was a huge hassle and time-suck for admin (who have real jobs) to deal with, so we stopped using it.
