Well, I thought now was as good a time as any to start a thread on the restoration of my little B12. Some of you may remember me asking for parts (still need throttle cable, engine, starter button, grille, AC & B12 front badge, and seat). I am fourteen, and between school and caring for my 30 or so chickens find it hard too get time to work on the little bugar, but I make do. So far I have completely taken apart every nut bolt and piece of sheet metal off the thing, and I've stripped and primed the front hubs, hood, foot rest, several small parts, hydraulic ram, dash, and fenders (pics up tomorrow) I have my total cost at about $5 for the baking soda for my E-tank. Hoping to have all my rods, chassis, and other miscellaneous parts done by the end of winter break. If any body could tell me where to get any of the parts I listed I needed, I'd be very appreciative (I am 14 and on a budget) Thanks for responses, and pics tomorrow!

On the starter button, is it a chrome metal one? Or the rubber bulb type that is about 3/4" in diameter?

Which ever one resembles this the closest.

Hey bigcountry48,

Great to see you diving into this project. I wish I had a stash of parts that you are looking for. I'll keep my eyes out for them. Pics will be great.

Do you have a Tractor Supply nearby? They have push button switches for 5 or 6 bucks. I saw one that says it is for international tractors. Then again, it sounds like you are doing a complete restore and may want origional parts? That engine could be the most expensive thing to find but with time, I bet you will find one. I will look forward to seeing pics of this tractor and your progress.

Well, here are the promised pics, its not much now, but hopefully it'll come out real nice!
Here is the makers plate that I need to have remade.
AC  B12 seat pan.jpg
It did originally have a high low, although it may have been taken off, I can't tell. :oh_shucks:
AC B12 HI LO.jpg
I try to keep all my nuts and bolts in labeled containers to know where they went.

AC B12 hydraulic.jpg .
In the middle of stripping this piece, will be in primer this time tomorrow :smiley-score005:
AC B12 steering wheel tower.jpg
Lot of work to be done on this piece.
AC B12 front grille.jpg
Had this pressure wash only to find out it was much worse than I imagine. I will be using a lot of bondo on this piece. :wallbanging:
AC B12 chassis.jpg
Eventually I'll bust this apart, and rebuild it. Can anyone tell if it has the high low on it if not I plan on buying one later.
AC B12 bevel gear box.jpg
The tires are $25 for both to whoever can get them off. They have good tread, and hold air just fine (no slight leaks or any of that)
AC B12 rear tires.jpg
Although it is hard to tell with this terrible lighting, here are all of my primed parts!
AC B12 gear shift primed.jpg
AC B12 primed foot rest.jpg
The dash is beat to mess so I'll have to get a shapping hammer and work with it. :smashing_pc:
AC B12 primed dash and fenders.jpg
This is my indoor make shift painting booth, I have a dehumidifier, and several fans that make it work great!
AC B12 primed front rim.jpg
Thanks for looking, and hope your neck isn't to stiff (I love taking pictures) :camera:

It doesn't have one, and may have never had one on it. The Lo-Hi decal was put on at the factory whether or not the tractor was equipped with the Two-Speed Pulley.

I have a grill off a late model B10 with a emblem. I don't know if it is the same but if it is I will sell it.
