Well this is getting very near the end. I'm running out of things to do on it and I haven't been able to settle on what the next project should be. So without further ado here it is in all it's glory.

I hope paint and decals will be a big help this summer.

Wow Chris, really nice repower.  Those guards turned out great too!  How are you going to stand not painting it now?

Thanks for the compliments. Your right it is going to be a blow to the pride to be seen on this tractor till it is painted. I refuse to paint it though until I know I have all the bugs worked out.  Come on spring.  :D

  One of the engines was listed on Craig's list and the other on K-bid. The first one was purchased by a gentleman who worked for the construction company that had quit using the sign. He was going to use it to power a log splitter and never got the project started. I have no information on the second one as it was a consigned sale.

That LT1 lister sounds alot different than the AC1 on my MF10. My AC1 absolutely HAMMERS at low RPM I'm curious about the power rating of that LT1 engine.

  The Lt-1 is rated at 8hp at 3000 rpm. I'm only running 1500 and Lister told me it should be putting out about 5hp. What ever it is the torque is incredible. The other day I buried the Bolens loader tractor in mud at the edge of the yard. That tractor is very heavy with counter weights and fluid in the tires. The Wheel Horse pulled the back end sideways up onto the yard without any trouble. Lister also told me that the crankshaft weighs as much as the flywheel and the flywheel weighs around 50 pounds if I'm not mistaken.

  Wish I could find a use for the other one.

$200.00 and freight and it is yours! I'll deliver to a terminal at 57201 for you. I ran it shortly before putting it away. I have to get rid of some of this stuff as I have another Kubota  955 on the way.

I would if I could afford, but couple lack of money with lack of time, and it's a no-go for me.  Heck, I still haven't gotten the Yanmar 16hp diesel into my Massey w/FEL yet.  Maybe another member will take you up on that deal!

20 miles south west of Watertown or 40 miles north west of Brookings. Straight up interstate from Sioux Falls. Just let me know ahead of time so I can dig it out.
