Hi folks, new member here on the forum. Ive had a few old wheelhorse over the years that have come and gone. I'm 47 years old, child of the 80s, but have always had an appreciation of older stuff. Parents always had antique/junk shop when i was growing up.
Anyway, picked this up locally a couple days ago. Im aware that a few pieces parts are missing, and perhaps some parts are not original to the tractor. And even maybe some homemade parts(belt guard), the steering linkage certainly looks "engineered" outta pieces parts, but its fuctional. Any info would be greatly appreciated. The rear tranny where the wheels connect to the shafts dont look like pictures ive run across so far, so thats a mystery to me as well.
The only real concern i have, is that the engine does smoke abit....it seems to run great, easy to start, idles nice....just does scare a few of the mosqiutoes away. Tranny shifts well and is quite, small leak outta one of the axle seals.
I paid 550$ for the tractor, i have really no idea if that was a good, bad, or fair price to pay. Someone did seem to put alot of effort into fixin it up, so thats what attracted me to it in the first place.
Gonna try and post a number of pics so you all can have a look. Any insight or opinions are appreciated, thanks, mike
