Correct parts information needed

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, this is my first post so I hope it works... I've picked up a 854 not to long ago and I'm trying to restore as close to original as possible. My question is which seat should I be looking for. It came with the round seat and was told it was original but I've been seeing a few come on fb with square seats. I have both but would like to know what it originally came with in 1964. Also were the bug lights an option in 64? If so is there a reproduction that's close to original? Thank you in advance for any help

Welcome to red square! I am pretty sure you should have the square pan seat and the lights were a option. But I will be the first to say we want pictures.

I believe the square pan seat is correct for a 854. Also the light option in '64 may have been the HL-5 kit. Those are rare these days. As Chris stated we do like our :text-coolphotos: here!

This is the 854 I picked up about 2 weeks ago, just got done going thru it and bringing up everything to good running working conditions. Now it's time to starting going thru the body and start sanding and painting but didnt wanna waste my time on the seat if it's the wrong one...

WELCOME

Looks like hood has been rattle can repainted.  If the rest is original paint, it could be a good Canidste for a patina tractor.  Possible wet sand lightly and clearcoat.  

It it’s your horse so make it what you want it to be!

Is a :wh: seat but yes not correct. The square pans in decent shape are becoming rare.

A few of the fellas here made their own light bars and used look alike lights or something close. That's probably the best one can do unless one happens to stumble across them at flea markets.

Lots of threads here on them - search HL-5 in the search box.

Yea I just searched them, thank you for the help... and the hood has been can sprayed, so the whole thing will be sanded and painted, if u can see the c160 in the back ground i just finished that one... so the seat is a WH? Do u know from what?

Most RJs & Suburbans and others have the five hole round pans. A common seat in the day. A few have had solid pans.  I call them five hole just because the there are five near the mount.

Nice 160 :handgestures-thumbupright: Funny how the pic makes it look like a short frame! :)

:text-welcomeconfetti:  nice tractors, I don’t mind the look of a round hood and a round seat!

 

Here is my 502 custom.  The round seat came with it, I seem to like it and it’s my most comfortable tractor to sit on... so I have no reason to change it.

      This tractor has very close to all its original parts. Has its original Tecumseh/Lauson HT55c 3088. The hood has a minor repair at the top front seam. The engine valves have been replaced. Carburetor has been rebuilt. It ran great this spring but now acts as if the carb needs to be cleaned. The hood was painted poorly when I got it so I started to strip it and that is as far as I got. The rest of the tractor is the original paint. Transmission shaft seals have been replaced. I have a new set of decals from Terry for it also. It has the original dealer decal.

      I was just browsing Craigslist and saw this. They are asking $175. Does anyone know what year and model this is?
