Some pictures of the new 820 with the custom hitch I made for it yesterday (out of boredom) so I could have both it and the Ball. Has no motor, as I am looking for one, but has a deck and mule drive that I have yet to get pictures of. Had it out seeing what my new 140 H3 would do, so I grabbed a few shots of it.

I am going to take the whole trans off and clean it up and pressure wash the frame, clean up the hood and fenders, then find an engine. I want to keep this one original, as the paint on it has been pretty well preserved.

Dane, what engine did they have in that one?

Nice starting point, that's for sure. Except for the heart transplant, it looks to be a real survivor.

It had an 8hp Briggs in it (not too familiar with Briggs models), its old engine threw the rod while pulling a log out of the woods, and he took the motor off to use for parts for his other Speedex. He is trying to get the engine pulley off for me so I can use it.

In the picture of the trans, there is that gap. I am getting a lot of side-to-side movement from this assembly. Is there any way I can get rid of this? I planned to grind down the pin that the bolt goes through to make it shorter, therefore tighter, giving it less play.

Really Dane, I think this is the speedex way. The tractors are crude and rugged, so a farmer with normal materials could fix just about anything. your fix sounds as good as any and is in keeping with the speedex way.

I guess so. Would there be a good way of going about this?

Cool tractor! Looks like the 140 is having fun hauling it around. But, I think you trailer tires are a bit short of air.
