70.5TransAmDan

Hello Everyone, my name's Dan and I'm a wrenchaholic.

 

Um, sorry. 

That's Thursday nights meeting.

 

First, thank you to all you old farts out there like myself and don't get me wrong. There are many young, Old Farts in this world also.

I think of anyone that sees beauty deep inside an old tractor, samurai sword, and yes, even a lovely lady could qualify also.

If you're the type of person that has the patients and other qualities that's needed to bring beauty and life back to something others see as old junk, or past it's prime, you're my kind of person. 

 

To the point now.

I ran across a 1980ish Argo 8x8 Amphibious vehical for the right price the other day, FREE, and of course it has the infamous Starter/Generator system. Also, it's had many unqualified druggies, and electrical experts, work on it before me.  I'm retired union electrician and fiber optic engineer so I was once qualified but,. But,. But, what was I talking bout?

You get my point. 

So, I was wondering if anyone could possibly point me in the direction of a midg,,,,,,. Wait,. Little Person, preferably a female and  blonde, so I won't have to do so much bending over working on this darn thing and while you're at it, maybe a wiring diagram for a complete starter/generator including a three wire voltage regulator? 

 

If you have information on either of these, the help would be most appreciated. 

Really, she doesn't even have to be blonde or little.

 

That ought to show you just how willing I am to work with others.

 

;)

 

Thank all of you here for sharing your wisdom so it can be handed down for others to learn.

From one old fart and retired electrician (IBEW 43) please accept my appreciation for anyone who would rather invest their money in rusted old stuff than waste it mon greens fees at the local golf course. The manual below should get you on your way to happy amphibious motoring.

      1977 C160 Automatic Tractor.  This has been my go to tractor for over 30 years.  Not a show tractor by any means. Could definitely use a tune up but still runs and mows.  Included are original manuals, 2 mowing decks, cab ( which needs all the windows replaced) including the doors and tire chains.  Someone modified the plow so it doesn't really fit this tractor.  I purchased a larger machine so do not have a need for this.  Hydraulic lift is not working.  One front tire has a slow leak.  Open to offers.  Thought I had this sold but it was someone trying to scam me with a phony cashiers check.  Please be careful.  This is the only site I have this listed so the scammer must be monitoring these ads.  Sold the rototiller. So adjusted the price.

      Hi I am trying to resurrect my fathers 1966 wheel horse lawn ranger.  I have gas leaking from the carburetor and I need a replacement.  I can not seem to find any accurate resources for the correct one needed. 
       
      Here are the specs for the tractor.  I am also in need of a seat for it if you know which work for this model.  
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Landed me 2 Walk Away's today. 1 complete with continuous one piece handle and 6-12 wheels, Clinton Engine. The second one is just the Pond gearbox, Hubs, frame and also one piece handlebars. The Clinton engine tag shows it to be a B704. I have been checking the web for year. Found Clinton site but no direct hint for year. So any of you have any idea how to determine the year of this Walk Away? I know the engine can give me an idea. I have the Walk Away manual download but know it is a 54, which shows the two piece handlebars. So does mine indicate they could be the early ones from 48-50?
