Good to see you out and about.
You don't really think it is safe to plant yet do you?
I fired the Plow Trac up last weekend Just to hear it run.
Started on the 3rd pull, not bad since I forgot to put the choke on.
Mower still needs a bushing and linkage but will then be ready to go.
Any good ideas on a place to look for tires for the Bradley basket case?
Wells im always out and about doing something. I dont know if we're planting just yet but the ground is ready to plow, so we shall plow it. have had a couple of tractors running fresh out of the shed. My son thinks he wants to plow this wekend so we will see how that works out. I my self plan to restore most of the model D simplicity......more on that over in its post tomorrow.
on the tires..........Sear was real big on "Used Auto Tires". So much so that they trade marked that slogan. All Db tractors( and other farm equipment) came out with bare rims and you had to either buy the knobby or ag tires extra, or go to your local tire dealer and see if he had any spent car ones. Since this was long ago and 16" tires arent found on cars any more, its a little more difficult to do. The db is a tough tractor and will plow fairly well on bald tires, and better with just a pair of chains installed, which are fairly easy to come by. Other than that, unless your building a show machine, you really dont need to have bar lug ones, as the new ones are pretty costy.
