That is so cool. And it's funny I thought I was the only one to do that to a Ford Explorer LOL. People always say "you'll never get that in there" but I do! even if it means dismantling it :laughingteeth:

Yep, it appears to be a Springfield that's in relatively good condition considering its age.

It looks like there is a metal tag attached to one of the seat mounting bolts. .....You may find the model # there.

If you can determine the model, I may have a Parts Manual for it.

Yup, definitely a late 1950s or early 1960s Springfield. And that was free?? How much do you want for it? lol

I have all the manuals for those, so if Bruce doesn't I do. Difference is Bruce actually gets his manuals uploaded lol.

Pretty Cool !, now that you got that for free,you should go into that TSC. store in the background and hit them up because of the free advertisment you gave them and get them to be site supporters! Shawn :smilewink:

Good eye! I was at the Tractor Supply store....bought my first LAGT magazine.......liked what I saw!

Bought a Cat O link and a few other various things.....

Clinton motor on this springfield and the motor turns but not easily. It was really dusty and still in the back of the Expedition.

Will get it out tomorrow.....I saw the serial number tag....but the model number etc tag was pretty well worn.....will wash it off and see what I have tomorrow.

What do you use for replacing the tires?? They are all shot.

Thanks
