I have a 3 car garage which houses my Dad's Alfa Romeo, my moms CRV, and then the 3rd bay is mine, so its not like I have a shed or barn that they dont keep an eye on. My Dad would know right away if there was 4 of them unfortunately

You are becoming a real addict if you are starting to hide them.

Oh yeah! :D

By the way, nice looking tractor.

Got it running last night. Oiled the fuel pump, cleaned plugs, filed and cleaned points, hooked everything up and she fired up. Gonna need a brass float and a good carb clean and nose cone repair (surprise surprise) and we will have a good tractor on our hands.

Happy to hear that the ole girl is running. Sounds like you're going to have a nice collection. Thanks for sharing

Just found this thread.

Nice score there. :thumbs:

I too am looking forward to seeing the whole group lined up

for a picture.

 

As for hiding them in the garage, maybe you could put up a wall, and paint a murial

on it, of only 2 tractors. :D

Nice score! Wish I had an Onanpowered 18/6. Iam about to have a Briggs powered 18/6 converted from a Briggs 16/6. Have always wondered if Sears had a name for that shade of silver paint or a part #? Anyone know of a paint brand that closely matches?
