Might be better to ask who didn't get seat time on it!

So this $20 auction special Sears/Roper/Craftsman tractor here came with an automotive battery I needed for a core return and a “spare” engine.  The battery core was worth it in my mind.  With what gas was in the turpentine can gas jug, a jump from Norman and it was alive!  I even drove it around the camp site... until the gas jug fell out and it was spewing fuel all over!  I ended up letting it run out of fuel since it’s a magneto ignition and the wiring was cobbled to the point the key wouldn’t kill it.  The spare engine is a bone dry vertical shaft, so it’ll be stripped for any possible parts and junked.  After @wheelhorseman Lowell’s son Travis helped me finish field dressing it, we made room in the truck bed for important parts and we found a trash receptacle for some unwanted parts.  

 

I was thinking king last night, there’s a possibility that this engine finds it’s way into the Sears Suburban 12 that I drug home a few months ago.  A set of tires and it’ll be a ripper!

Well, it was almost a wash!  Got $18 for the battery off this $20 tractor!

 

Also @Achto we were talking fuel mileage one night at the campsite...  10.04 to PA and back, through the mountains and all.  9.6 to WI and back, with less gear and less tractors and no mountains!  The only difference I can think of, is the Edge CTS module was on “Level 2 / Tow Performance” on the PA trip and was at stock on the WI trip.  It’s back on Level 2 now!

That's what I like about diesel engines. Crank up the horse power & gain fuel economy. :handgestures-thumbupright:

 

The DT466 in the Intersmashable used 14gl to make the 140ish mile round trip for me.
