Nice project.

We would enjoy any stories you can share about your dads dealership. Also any pictures of you at a young age with horses would be cool!

Great love to watch the whole process of rebuilding a tractor. Will be observing and taking notes so as to learn all that I can. I'm starting to get into the hobby of small time collecting and redoing yesterdays tractors. With a tilt towards Horses but love a lot of the old iron. My dad was the man that got me hooked on wheel horse tractors. I'm going to redo his C-160 here before long.

That looks like a nice one to start with. I'll be watching too. Lots of wiring on that tractor, be sure to mark it well and take lots of pics when you take it apart.

 Some pics of the deck before teardown; deck is in great shape, solid, just needs fresh belts, blades, and a little love.  Tomorrow night, some pics of the progress so far and some shiny stuff

@76c12091520h, may I suggest you become a supporter so 1) you are helping keep the lights on here at RS, 2) unlimited uploading of your restoration pics/vids...its a small price to pay...

for all you get sharing and receiving great info for our little red tractors.

 So I figured since I'm waiting for the powder coater to get the deck shell done, and there's only four bolts holding it on, I may as well be comfortable since  I'm mowing with this one this year; stripped all the brackets and the seat pan, replaced or refurbished all the hardware with grade 8 or stainless, applied epoxy primer, basecoat and cleared(and got a new seat!).

 Cleaned and refurbished all the spindles,  stripped and refinished the brackets and the deck/ mule drive pulleys, all new hardware.

 NOS parts from my dad's closed dealership; most of the stuff that I'll be posting is the last of what he had in inventory.  Got the deck and some other stuff back from powdercoating, stay tuned.
