Is it yours now David? Good looking little tractor! The weights are from small Farmall front wheels.

How much do they weigh? And yes It's mine. I noticed some bolts on the trailer when I got home. The deck is coming off as I got this tractor for playing and plowing. I did now with it for a hour. It did well. First impressions are good. While I hate the paint it was done right. I noticed the side wall leaking antifreeze on the rears so they will be pulled off and tubed

Some if of the parts that came with it. Everything came from Sears. Wonder if he replaced the gear boxes or if he ordered these as extras. They appear fine. How many blade collars does one need?

Good for you. Super news anothe Sears has found a good home.

Re: blade collars. Those are designed to be break away. If you hit much of anything with it, that collar turns to pieces. When my parents first put in their back yard in the late 60's, that pile would've been one or two summers mowing.

They are "gearbox savers" so to speak. they act the same as a "shear pin" in a piece of farm equipment.

How do I tell if these spare gear boxes are any good? They have no play any feel fine when you spin them.

You just tested them how I would. I'd also pull the 4 little bolts out of the cover and check for obvious wear or metal flakes in the grease.

Since you have it open, good time to refresh, replace, refill the grease in there. Use the good stuff. I think Dad always used the really sticky bearing grease in his.

This is the mess I'm in now. I have a feeling ill have the ugliest tractor at the plow day. I'll be painting it this winter. Enamel? Is that the paint I need? What's this lever for?

I would much rather have the ugliest tractor at plow day than the prettiest one NOT at plow day.

Don't worry about looks, Daniel has an "Ugly" BH you can park it next to if it starts feeling under dressed.

All flat areas had some prep so I couldn't save the oem paint. Oven cleaner didn't work. Graffiti cleaner didn't work either. This stripper did on the non preped area. I painted some engine tin and fenders with rust converter. This cat yellow is off from cat yellow but is a dead on match with sears.

Wow, in that 1st pic, the 10 looks like it just got done with an all day paintball tourney.

Are you doing a full-on painting now or just a touch up on the trouble areas?

I'll do a full repaint this winter. I learned a lot with the allis last winter (several things I have to redo on that one). I'm really liking the new paint from tsc. I'll use it and see how it holds up next year to the work and the summer sun.

I went to put the fenders on for plow day. As of now I like the new paint from tsc. It goes on thin but covers well. I only put one coat on them until I sand down and repaint the whole thing.
The color looks bad in the pics but you get the idea. I also noticed I've got a rear seal leaking.
