I had no intention of doing it but it happened tonite. I went and tore the 12 down to its basic components so it can get its new paint applied. I really had no intention initially to even paint this tractor but when I get involved with a project I somehow end up going farther than I expect too. Some of the rust spots on the frame were too much to ignore and it would have been an ugly paint job when it was done. I am not going to make it a show piece or anything like that but it is getting a proper cleaning and then it will get put back together as I get paint put on it. Here's where I am as of tonite along with a few pics of my blower I bought for it. Hopefully I get it done in time to use it for snow duty this season.

You certainly don't waste any time. I like your thinking about doing the job right. That is usually how my son does his projects. Thanks for the pics and please keep us updated.

Very nice, it seems to have found a good home. It deserves a proper paint-up.

I hear you. I have the same problem. It's hard to leave rust on something that you plan on using and keeping for a long time. Happened to me with my 314. I ended up doing way more disassembly and sanding/painting then I intended or needed to do. I feel much better about the end results though!

I'm a little ways behind you but the pics of the hydro and frame side view helps me know where I have to go once I test the hydro. Which brings up a dumb question I have to answer, so here goes. What is the proper engine shaft rotation-? I'm pretty sure-not 100% though--that its CW at the shaft. Since I've got to use an electric motor for the test, I'd better get it right.----Thx,LeeB

The more I study your pics, the more I think thats not a bad idea. when you tested your hydro was it still on the frame? Might be just as easy for me to control it if I remove to the bench.-----LeeB

The direction of rotation is relative to the direction you are looking at it from. Goes one way looking from the front of tractor back, other when you are behind looking forward. Hope this cleared things up.:bigrofl:

Oh yeah, its clear now. It explains why the further forward I go the behinder I get, and I
could've been right all along, but looking from my other left.:wallbanging::bigrofl:
