Fixing up my son's tractor. Rod broke in original motor and in looking for used motor decided to upgrade, We changed motor out for twin cylinder 18HP (had to completely rebuild motor mount and front axle mount, notch frame, etc). Now have started blasting and repainting as we reassemble. He wants a new holland tractor like his grandpas and uncle so looks like thats where we're headed with it. Most sheet metal is good but need new grill and seat pan. Its not going to be close to original but want to keep it era correct and nice redo.Any help is appreciated.

Welcome. You may have to check out ebay or a local tractor repair place for their bone yard. I get engine parts and hardware type parts at NAPA because they're cheaper. Good Luck

this guy is still advertising an aftermarket grille that looks good
<csguyy@yahoo.com>

I have front grills for the GT10 thru GT16 and Some tube frame Fords.
These Grills are heavy gauge metal, Laser cut and machine bent. They have cut
outs for the lights and the word 'HOT' cut in at the engine exhaust. These
grills are way stronger than the original, look great and bolt up easily. Check
out my pics at csguyy.

I do have more Grills for the tube frame tractors and if I run out, I can make
more. $85 shipping included.


I use paypal for our mutual protection. C

Welcome to the forum! Those parts are best found off a parts tractor. What year we looking at here? Is it an open side tractor or like in my avatar?
