Nice find at that price, congrats.





Wait a second......I thought he bought a GT? :say_what:

:bigrofl: :bigrofl:


Yeah its a horse, as I recall that model was marketed as an estate tractor to compete with the 400 john deere.

NICE! Yeah, 26x12x12 rear and 18x8.50x8 fronts, its a monster. I got to drive one over the summer, very cool machine. That blade is off a Gravely walk behind. Would be interesting to know what else it can take

Awesome deal! You can probably get half your money back on the Suburban hitch and plow.

Wow, Kenny, you got a nice deal there. It looks to bee in very nice shape.

Will any of the GT series stuff work on it, or are you starting over on your search for implements?

As far as implements, any sleeve hitch will fit it. I'm thinking of making extensions for the Sears plow to fit a Cat-0 and use it. Looks almost new. It's a Hoss, that's for sure.
On the exhaust, I believe they came with duals. The PO put VW ends on it, looks good and is pretty quiet.
Rears are 26X12's, fronts are 18X8.50's. Haven't gotten to play with it too much yet.

I was wondering where the blade came from. He made the mount go all the way to the rear end. It should move some dirt or snow if needed.

Wow great GT! Thats probably tipping the 1k scale.

With the blade, I'm guessing a bit over. The tractor itself is around 850 lbs.

Great deal Kenny! Love the 3pt lift!
Noticed those 6 lug rear rims and guessing they are 26-12-12 Goodyear terra ags!! You are da man! Those are the tires I have had to work my back end off to find! The tires alone are worth $200!

They are the Terra Ags. I hope to make bottom links for the 3-point like I did for Bertha.

Wow Kenny!!! That's a deal. And, she's a big girl.
Where is the cylinder hidden for the 3pt?
Those rears look exactly like the ones on Nutndun's HD-12.
Congrats.

I haven't seen the cylinder yet, Will. It's under there somewhere.

Just noticed, and it's not fair....you got a perfect seat too! Seats are always ripped when I get a tractor! Congrats on a great acquisition Kenny!

This is the first tractor I have with a good seat on it. Another reason I bought it.

great find....the hitch is a hard thing to find round here.....been lookin for one for a while that wont cost me my first born......prob just gona end up making one since I have the original sears schematics for one.

Have you uploaded those schematics? I will need to build lower arms for the 3-point and having those to work off would be great.

So, what's the plan for this one Kenny? Are you going to tear it right down, and bring it back
to new?

Getting too cold for tearing it down. I'll mess with it some. Learn more about it. Most small decals are still on it, so I want to save them. Has a few small things that could use attention. Needs an oil change badly. Probably put some MMO in the oil and run for a bit, then change. One rear axle seal is leaking, got to see what's up there. Brakes don't work. Mainly leave it as is until Spring.

That's an awesome setup and a great project. It looks like it was looked after and is mostly just faded and could use a sprucing up. The axle seals can leak if the hydro vent is blocked and pressure builds up in the oil reservoir. It then forces oil out through the weakest spot which will be the axle seals most times. I had both sides leaking on my 314. The brakes were soaked. When I went to check the hydro fluid level the oil gushed out of the filler pipe soaking me and the garage floor. I think it was over filled as well. Once I got the vent sorted the seals never leaked again.
