Oh, BTW...the engine turns free, but as usual, the exhaust valve is stuck open. I'll go ahead & check that out asap. But it is a tr10d instead of a TRA10D. I was hoping for the true 10hp version, but ALL 4 D4-10's have been TR's instead of TRA's. (true 8.25hp) :(

Daniel, that is quite the load of goodies. I bet you can't hardly wait to start putting it all together. Best of luck getting it going, I know it will be a great tractor. And one you won't part with!

That's fantastic, that you got that bill of sale. Certainly a special part of Bush Hog and Daniel history.
This story, should get picked up by LAGT too.
Have you started wrenching it yet?

Now for the fun part, putting it back together! There are more parts there then I thought! So, will you assemble it as is, or restore it as you assemble it? Or tear it back down again to restore it?

WHEN the time comes, it will be restored "as I assemble". But as I said...don't hold your breath as to "when".

Well, I will be waiting until the day that you decide to put it all back together! When people ask when, or if I am going to restore something, I always say "When the time comes" too.

Daniel glad you had a good and fruitful trip. New T-shirt, new hat and a whole bunch of Bush-Hog parts don't get much better than that. Enjoy. Randy G. :thumbs:

Bill of sale on top of everything else !! What an incredible experience for you and Teresa. Congratulations ! I hope LAGT does pick this up so more folks will share in the excitement and history will be preserved in print not just on electronic bits that seem to crash and get lost.
Wow !

Great load of stuff and an awesome story to go with it! I'm glad that you got to have the experience! Congratulations again Dan!
