After quite a few years of not running I am finally this summer going to get my dad's T-16 H running. I had been looking for a good repacement motor for it. I bought one from a guy on another forum and we are going to put it in this spring. I was also looking for a rear lift kit. I bought a T-16 H in MO and got it back and removed the lift kit and put it in mine. I found a sleeve hitch for it and have had a rear tiller for about 18 yrs. Now after having the tractor for 20 yrs I will have all the attachments I want for it except a revitalizer. DOn't mean to ramble but it has been a long winter and my health is starting to improve to the point that I can start yo enjoy working on it again. I will try to post some pics later.

It's nice to have the attachments you need for a vintage tractor. I don't know what a revitalizer is but it sounds like a good thing to have!

I'll bite and follow along. It'll be nice to see something different being worked on!

I believe this is a Revitalizer, I think they were a De-thatcher.

Yup that is the revitalizer. I had a deal going for one out of state but we couldn't afford the shipping. We were going to trade even up for a rear tiller I had. Hope I can get one in the future. I was going to fully restore my dad's tractor but lately I have been thinking about leaving it as it is. In its " working clothes" as they say. i like a working piece of history. We have a 1942 Allis Chalmer WC on rear steel that we are working on also. We were going to completely restore it but have decided that it will be as it is in its "working clothes". I will get it done , it will be a slow process and I will post some pics as it goes along.

Roger, I'm looking forward to following along on this one. Got me a chair in the front row.
I passed on a Revitalizer (that was orange anyways) last fall. It would of been a grand total of $325 between the Ebay auction and shipping.
I'm still in the same boat as before. Still missing the roller, cart, bagger hood, and revitalizer from this pic.

Hey CAT, been a while since I have been on here. Got the desire to get back into fixing up the tractor. I picked up two more t-16h in the last year or so. Probably going to use the parts from one to fix dad's and then get the other running. Going to take a while. Not as spry as I was a couple of years ago. I will keep you guys up on the progress.

Was out in the cold garage today gathering up pieces of the real lift and seeing what I needed to do with it. When I removed the lift linkage from the parts tractor I had to saw the original rod in to because it had rusted due to not being used. It is stuck in the linkage and I had tried heat and oil last year to no avil. I have it in the heated garage and am going to try to get it apart without freezing my hands. I may have to drill a hole in it and put some oil in it to loosen it up. I plan on putting a zerk fitting in it after I get it working properly. I was talking to a gentleman at a tractor show last year who had aproblem like this and he said he took a dremel tool and cut a small groove around the rod, lengthwise, in the area where it was inside a tube and then put a zerk fitting in it to grease it and it works great. As soon as it warms up I will take the original Briggs out and replace it with one I got from a guy on the other forum. Same motor about a year newer. I am trying to post a picture of the lift kit don't know if it will post though. More later.
