My time right now is revolving around a John Deere M.  No, it isn't a garden tractor, but it could pull a mower deck!  Once it's done I can turn back to a few other projects.

 

I need to get out and finish the 1979 Gilson.  All it needs are blades for the mower deck, but so far I'm coming up empty.

 

I'd like to get my Clinton 900 finished, also.  I'm only a few steps away, but I've got to do a little engineering yet.

 

...I'll stop there.  I'm overwhelmed.

Because I am hooked on all kinds of interesting tools. Of the 60 tractors I have 50 were free. The machine tools were very cheap. The generators were $25 each. I can't pass up things like that. When I was young, I 'd work til midnight in the garage rebuilding engines and cars. Now I often fall asleep by 1000pm. Your question was very good and is making me reflect. I'm not young any more, I need to be more realistic in my planning. Thanks, Rick

Oh boy, lets see: In no order

 

Finish rebuilding transaxle for the Bh D4-7

Finish rebuilding the D4-7

Research to see if the D4-7 axle can handle the D4-10 engine (I believe it can but don't know)

Get the V series running correctly

Open up the clutch on the D4-12 and fix the plate

Get the 12 running correctly

Drag the JB in the garage and rewire it

Move Brians tractors to a new location as I need the space and a tree near by isn't looking so good.
