Another thing to point out is this "pocket T" GTT shirt. This one was custom made for me by Brian (texas deere & horse). Mighty nice of him. He gave it to me at the Evansville show.

I'm glad that the trip went well and that you're getting an evening off too! Thanks for all the pics, but why would you borrow Maynard's camera when you know it doesn't focus right Dan? (Sorry, I just had to :poke: a little) I hope that the trip home is uneventful and that the D4-10 makes the journey OK too!

We had to rush through the tour, so a lot of the pics were done on the move. It's a miracle they are as legible as they are! LOL
Just went out looking at some of the parts. One of the wheel weights looks to be an REAL Bush Hog weight. I was thinking by the pics in sales lit that they had a more rolling lip in the center. When I just dug the other one out, it looks exactly like the one in the original sales sheets. REAL close to the std Cub Cadet weights, which I believe the 2nd one is.

There was a sliding cluster gear loose in one box, but all raked of teeth on one side, and some off the other side. ......RATS! Then I found the one still on the shaft like in the pics, and it's been busted! Someone welded or brazed (can't tell yet) the half back on, but not sure if it's usable or not. I just hope the cluster in the complete transaxle is good. I have one good cluster gear at home for a spare, but then my one D4-10 (rusty one) has a rigged up cluster gear I redone in it, and it needs replaced.
My plan, though it may take years is to restore this tractor. Being I have the bill of sale from them, I'd like to have it all fixed up.

Glad you could take the time for the trip, Daniel! Lots of nice goodies that you can use and a hat! Hope this helped some on the stress level!

Back home in Ky, safe & sound. I will say the Cherokee was riding low in the back! LOL She drove just fine though, despite the 700 to 800lb load. Good to be home! I'll take some pics as I unload & really get to see what I have to work with. I gotta rest up a bit, then I may begin the unloading.

Daniel that d4-10 with the bill of sale will be the only one of its kind.
I am sure you had already thought of that and probably asked for it. I am not that smart. I probably would have thought to ask for it after I had left the factory and was half way home!
Look forward to you bringing that one back to life!

Daniel, I'm glad you liked the shirt enough to wear it on your big day at the factory.

Can you scan the BoS to show it to us.

Happy to hear you made it home safely.

Scott, don't hold your breath on the restore. Likely be 2 years before I can start it....a year at least.

Brian, I'll scan it asap. It actually got damaged in the glove box. Got caught in the latch, but didn't hurt any printed areas. It has on the bill of sale "D4-10 Parts", so it along with the pics at the factory is all the provenance I will need. Yep, I'm the LAST man on earth to purchase a garden tractor from Bush Hog! :dancingbanana: And Brian, 2 reasons I wore the shirt...#1 reason: you were such a good friend to make it for me, and 2:....pocket T !!!!! :smilewink:

OK...here's what I have found above normal ordinary parts when Teresa & I unloaded the Jeep, and put the parts away in a building.

A box with some original round belts:

DSC06143.JPG

A bag of new 1" Timken bearings for front hubs, 2 new seals, and 2 new roller bearings. Do not know yet where these roller bearings & seals go yet.

DSC06138.JPG

2 good wheels that are used on both the Bush Hog Trail Mower & the 3pt version, the S4242.

DSC06145.JPG

2 NOS headlight bases, 2 good glass lens, and reflectors.. (in need of plating). Also a pair of chrome headlight rings that have been painted red. Not sure how the chrome looks underneath, but I'll find out when the time comes.

DSC06140.JPG

Here is the pic of the entire haul, minus the tires & rims in the old milk parlor room...separate pic.

DSC06134.JPG DSC06133.JPG

The complete transaxle has a perfect sliding cluster gear, plus the oil is like brand new & clean as a whistle! I think this transaxle is ready as-is! Unfortunately there is NO steering column/gears for the D4-10. The column I got is out of a V series tractor, but I own 2 of them, so good to have a spare. I do have a spare column from a D4-10 that I had planned to put in my "Ugly" D4-10, but I'll just weld up Ugly's busted set & use my spare on this tractor. Otherwise it looks like I have a complete tractor here, sans the cast grill emblem, and a fuel tank, which I also have with straps. :thumbs:

Now I saved a VERY cool item for last. This tube has something real nice inside. It is the top trim piece for the hood, and it has been re-plated by a plating service, which their address was on the tube. NICE!!!!!!!!!!!! All other trim pieces are here too, just not re-plated, but in great shape still.
