Bought a decent T75es couple weeks ago. Already in restoration. Can't wait to get it completed for county fair. Need some parts if anyone knows someone that has some around. I've learned alot in a few weeks about these Panzers , like how heavy they are. Ha.

And this is the"little" Panzer with aluminum grill and maybe front axle, the big ones about twice a heavy. :smilewink: Great find since many folks have became interested in them over the past few years.

Neat little buggers ain't they? I just got my motor mounts from Jim Dandy Sales, but the spring farm chores are already starting here and I'm still trying to finish a Cub for plow days in PA on April 28th, which means not as much time to work on my little Panzer. Good luck with yours :)

Yes, looks like a good piece for restoration. Congratulations. PM me which parts you need. I have very few... but I think I saw someone searching for parts in the yahoo group. May have been you.

Do you have the engine pulley for it??? I'd recommend going to dandy sales for that one if you need to find it. First off, a used one is hard to come by. Second, it has a rubber reverse disc which will likely be in bad shape on a used one. Third, they can easily get damaged when someone tries to get it off.

OK here is where I am at with restoration. I am in the process of getting all the parts to over haul the rear end and brakes right now. Brakes are all shot and the springs too. Sheet metal is coming along well. Had to weld patches in the hood where it had been cut out. Came out flawless. Need a different chain cover or I'll be manufacturing in more metal where it was cut out. I bet it was way easier to cut this sheet metal up than it is for me to fix it. The engine I have right now (which is the original 7 hp Briggs) is currently not running, that's a separate project in it's self. I'll be on the look out for a mower deck also to complete this tractor. Be patient for this may take a couple months to complete. I have twin boys that want my constant attention and it is planting season.
