Hood repairs look great. Thanks for the update.
Was there any damage in the tranny? I remember you said it was pretty gooey.

I am really happy with how the hood turned out considering where it started. A friend of mine owns a body shop and I traded some softball lessons for one of his daughters for the hood repair. I can coach fastpitch fundamentals a lot better than I can do metal repair! He offered to paint it as well, but I think I'll live with my skills for the rest of the project. My paint won't be as shiny, but it will be mine.

I think the transmission is going to be fine. The bottom cluster gear has some pitting from rust; but I think it is going to be OK. I removed all the rust from the gears in an electrolysis tank. Two of the three bearings on the input and output shafts were shot from rust. That didn't matter because I was going to replace them with sealed bearings anyway.

Hi guys, i have just bought a lambert 1000 tractor,12 hp kohler(i don't think it is original) and cannot find any info on it.the only numbers i can find are 5-15558 under the drivers side headlight. I would like to know what year is it,where it was built and if i can locate a manual. It runs excellent and came with a massey ferguson deck. Thank you

That last Lambert must be a "New" one. Looks way more modern than others in this posting.  Don't know how long made, but bet this is from 70's?? I was just chuckling on how OLD this posting was and now wondering what happen to the original tractor in the beginning of the story?  That done and pretty now?  How about a picture of it here.  Those main body's look like quite the magic stamping or forming, don't see any seams, so thinking one big piece?

Never saw one of these before.

It has the body of the farm-ette or a lambert but its a lambert.

What year is it?

At first glace I thought it was a cub cadet.

But it is almost a missing link of sorts because it is yellow.

Ok so the first cub cadet is 1962 right, that's about the time Farm-ette is gone( they had a fire) and sells its design to lambert I think.

Tom Moore goes to international and starts the cub line from what I have gathered.

The proto type for cub cadet is called a Cub-ette.

Farm-ette

Cub-ette

Cub Cadet!

Anybody but me ever put this together?

Do all the Cub Cadet people know about this?

Help me spread the word.

Heck I got a shed full of Farm-ettes, I can smell the increase in value.

Thanks

Chuck
