I remember where I saw it. It was on a push mower either an AC or Snapper it fastened to the cross bar below the handle. You know of a junk yard that has push mowers?

It snaps in. I did get it working, by just snugging up on the bolts that hold it together.

Thanks for the tip. I'll look around. Wouldn't hurt to have a spare.

Just about done. Just need to put the hood, and decals on.
Then I'm going to build the sleeve hitch for it.

Looking good, Will. Just out of curiosity, what are you using to make the tires look so good? Good luck with the 3-point!

Will, looks like a lot of headway being made there. Can't wait to see it next to the 7 for a family shot.

This afternoon, I got the sleeve hitch built. It's in the paint booth now.

Will, the only difference between those two is the missing sticker.

Pardon me for saying so, but darn, you do nice work. :D

Thanks.

Yeah, I guess they ran out of stickers, when they took that photo.

It looks like the old Brinly Hardy sticker. Grand has one on his sleeve hitch too.

I think it's a version of the bottom one.

Got it all done, and took it for a bit of a ride. I had to do a bit of adjusting on the brake. Other than that, it ran like a champ.
Here's some pics, before I put it back on the ground. Under the seat, you can see I
added an extension. Guess I had too much turkey at christmas.:smile1:
