Thank goodness your gas tank is okay. That is one of the most common things to go bad and hard to replace. As far as the reverse, that reversing tire don't look too bad. You can probably get by with some adjustment in the drive lever.

I got a little seat time on the Panzer today. Pushed all the snow off my driveway, and the neighbors drive too. I found out why reverse hasn't been working too good, after the second of 2 of the motor mount bolts fell out. Put the bolts back in with some new nuts, tightened them down some (not too tight) and reverse now works a lot better! Sorry, no video, but i did get a picture after I was done.

Good deal. That thing does look in good shape for original paint.

As for reverse... Yeah, I could see how a motor mount would play into reverse not working. There's probably also a liimter on the shift shaft as to how far it can travel toward reverse. Oh, and the reverse tire itself. All those things are in play.

When I pull the handle back, the motor was moving over too, so there wasn't enough friction on the friction wheel. When i limited the movement of the motor, reverse started work a lot better.

You got a great deal and the fact it started up so easy is even better. Congrats on the new to you Panzer. And we all know it won't be the last one LOL.

I had to smile when I read that... line used by GT nuts everywhere.

Great news it fired up!
Good save on figuring out why the Reverse wasn't working.
Would've been bad to loose the motor in the deal.

Glad it is working good for you. That's what it is all about, getting the tractors to do what you want, when you want. Have fun with it.
