T70B Full Restoration, Pic Extensive!

But now I get it.
If you look at the sales history (link below) which is the first thing down on the page, it looks like the T70Bs in your serial number range were being sold late summer 1962.

I didint find the information on when the tractors were sold. But 62 sounds good to me!!!. I have desided to take a few days off I find myself rushing to get to the next step. I really need to take a few days to hang ouit and not work on the Panzer. Last night I had used my wire wheel so much that all the wires fell out of the wheel. It was the sadest thing that I had ever seen I will post pics of the dead wheel later on. Anyways I preped my spray gun today so that is all set to go. I will have another update in a few days.
I almost fell out of my chair to see that yellow paint! But now I get it. If you look at the sales history (link below) which is the first thing down on the page, it looks like the T70Bs in your serial number range were being sold late summer 1962. http://www.panzertra...sDownloads.html
After looking around the site I did find the information that i was looking for very cool information.

Oh, isn't she a pretty little princess!
The mower looks pretty good on it, too. That's a good solid one to restore.

Looks like you have a nice start there. Where in Mass are you, im in Cumberland RI, I have a PTO and all the actuating linkages it looks like you will need if your using the deck. I would be willing to strip and prime for you. Let me know if your interested. My tractor is being built with the plow in mind so I dont damage the paint. Mine will be a trailer queen maybe used to dethatch the lawn but that will be it. Nice to see another Panzer the same vintage as mine close to home. There was only a few years made with the Panzer down the middle of the grill.
After looking at your pictures I noticed that you have the deck with the drive belt comes out the bottom of the tractor I have the PTO that goes on the side plate.
Looking further at the pics I see that there are 3 small holes on each side of the grill, do you know if your machine had headlights? That would be a cool option.

My mower deck does work, looks to be set up different than yours, my belt runs of the motor drive pulley and off two idler pulleys on the bottom and back to the deck... First thing i'll do is patch the deck, it's got the swiss cheese effect to it, stll has the serial and model numbers on it to, I'm up in Gardner by the way !!!
Im hoping you willset up a build thread it would be cool to see someone else to the work.

Bam, she lets me wash the parts in the tub. She also lets me build carbs on the kitchen table, lol.
Im almost at the point where I can start laying paint down. I told my self I wasnt going to rush on this machine, estimating my time finishing at 3-4 months. Im on track, I have a goal of having the tractor done for the 4th of July parade, here in Cumberland RI!
