Bought that GT14 at Portland. Found a 3pt for it also. Cost as much as the durn tractor!! Pulled it over to my location and took some pix. Bought new cables for it, two new front tires, and found a guy with gas tank coming Sat. Thing is pretty rough, but think I can work with it. Thinking the push hydro switch is missing, so hope is OK. It did push easy. Here's a few pix. Check out that front shot. Zat a woman's parts or someone's backside in grill area, ha!

It looks pretty solid. You can make a nice machine out of that. Some paint and elbow grease and you'll have a fine tractor. :thumbs:

Congrats on the tractor. Pretty sturdy looking machine. Recently there was one for sale locally and it's the first one I've seen up here.

What is the model and serial number? Can see the ID plate in the 3rd picture under the dash housing.

Nice score! I keep getting reports of all the finds that people are picking up down at Portland.......sure wish I could join in on the fun!

Those 3 point hitches for those aren't cheap.......glad you were able to find one for it though! I have a buddy that is big in to the GT-14's out of Ohio. Let me know if you need any help with anything!

I had a '70 GT14. I had a heck of a time finding the travel valve. It was on the left side down in front of the axle.

Grumpy, The is going to be a very GT when you get done. It is a 1969 model GT14, that was the only year that WH made the grill hollow allowing you to see the gas tank. Most of the tin is in nice straight shape, you may have to remove the rear cross member for the rear fenders to get the long bar up to and on the center rock shaft. Also, the 69 model was the only year WH used the Wood grained hood decals, the next year they went to the white back ground.

Good find...The GT-14 is a big machine.
I got one last Christmas. I found a 3 pt hitch and an extra cylinder and valve for "dual" controls. I had to buy 2 new (custom made) hoses. I have almost $500 in the 3 pt hitch business.....But it works good!

Have tractor pulled down now to the frame and axles/wheels. Power-washed it all up and easier to work on. Got a big idea to make it diff color than wheelhorse.......again! I've been blasting all day and painting some items. I've decided to make it have brown chassis like the late MM's had called "Dyna Brown" by them and the lighter yellow on tins. Trying to figure out how to paint tins and get the split in colors OK. Also not sure if dash casting will be black or yellow. Think will stay with yellow to match the hood. Will I have to make decals??? Let's see.....Moline Horse......Minnie Horse........Wheel Moline.......Experimental of course, not sure what to use for a number. G14....M14......MGT14.....hmmmm! Front wheels would have to be yellow and rears yellow centers with outers in Silver? To new of colors for Red wheels like letter tractors had.
Have to get into engine, probly rings and valve job should be all it needs. We'll have to see. That will be brown too. Rear axle still non-functioning as of now, that will be major hurdle too.

Look at this brown of parts. What ya think? Got front wheels blasted, paint tommorow, will be yellow. Blasting frame now too and hope to paint it tommorrow and get front axle back in. Other pictures of tractor "In Process" as factory's say now days. Gonna need two wheelbearings as water got into the rear ones. Will need the races for there also. Timken brgs, looked like familiar number starting with a LM. That mean Lawn Mower? Are these easy to find? I see a set on epay, but they say "RARE", not sure if so. I do belive the seals on back would be nice if new also. Have numbers on them also. Is that going to be a Toro part?

Any good bearing supply house should be able to get a cross for those bearings. Probably cheaper the Toro.
