Looks like a good deal to me :thumbs: Maybe we can talk about parts if you don't have any plans for the older one... :D Just curious, what's the model and serial number on it? If it's a '65 I think the grille would be nearly the same too...

I don't have any #'s yet. I just made the deal to buy them. all he knew was it was an early 60"s with an 8hp.For that price I didn't care what condition they were in. Just from the picture I can see the big one has parts I need. If the parts are what you need and they are in good shape, I'll just send them to you, then you just send me your old ones and I'll rework them. :smilewink:

Sounds like a plan. It would be great if it was a '65 but most of what I need will work too from a '64. I'll send you a PM later with the parts I am looking for and we'll go from there.

Ok I just got back form getting them and then dropping the Uhaul off.I am so beat lol, I hardly slept last night. The seat pan (after cleaning out all the muck) Looks to be in good shape. The grill and dash towers have been welded (poor job too) But I am happy for the price as the big on (1200) has allot of things I need to finish the Ford 100.PICT1044.JPG PICT1045.JPG PICT1046.JPG PICT1043.JPG PICT1047.JPG

Glad you got a parts tractor, but it looks good enough to refurbish to me. Take a break and rest a bit, the parts will still be there. Thanks for the pics. Oh yeah, I think I would add a few more drain holes in that seat pan to let the water out.

The pan should be the same. The grille is different unfortunately and as you said, it's broken anyway. Did you find any serial numbers on it? I think 1965 is the only year that Ford Jac and MM shared the same grille but the fenders and many other parts interchange from 64 to 65. I'm guessing you have a '64 Chief 800 so it should have most of the other parts I need. Is the battery holder there too?

Battery holder is gone. only good parts that I can see that you need are the pto cover, the gen adjusting bracket and the seat pan. the tag for the tractor is gone also so no clue on year yet, the tower was welded were the tag should be. I need to try and find year from engine. if anyone knows were to find mfd of a kohler here are the #'s K181 ser# 851411 spec# 30109A. I'll post more later after I get a better look of things today.

Looks like I will have most of the parts I need. I still need the side panels and a grille from a 1965 Ford Jac or MM if anyone knows where to find them :help: I was able to get ahold of Maple Hunter and they should have the decal set that Josh used on his. Once I get all the parts, I'll start disassembly and sandblasting some parts.
