It started out simply enough, I saw this neat tractor when I asked for directions one day, I looked until I found one, then I saw a parts unit that I had to have, you know, just in case; but it was too good to part out! So I restored it and I found another parts unit, BUT it was kept inside and it was pretty complete to part out SO I just set it in a corner, and then (GOT to stay off Craig’s List!!) a nice guy had had a running 812 and an 816 that set outside. He did not want to break up the pair and only $500. The 816 had rusted controls, frozen switches, and even the front end was rusted in place. It turned over and THANK GOODNESS it had low compression (last thing I needed was a reason to fix it up). I need a coil and starter-both were good-so I will take the 816 apart before I lose control of my senses and start buying parts for it. The deck on the 812 is poor and the 816 is fair but the 812 has great power and I even used it to drag the 816 up onto my trailer. Pictures to follow as soon as I shoot some.
Ok, now I have 5 and I am on the wagon...I really am....REALLY…but I may need support so please stay close to your computers.
