I plan to fix them both up and use them to work my garden. I plan to sell my '52 Farmall Cub.

One is a 1974 and it runs. It has been quite a while since it has been run because It smoked for about 10 minutes and then cleared up. The other I tried turning over but it has a electric issue. A rat has built a pretty good size next in around the steering and I figured it has chewed a few wires apart. I tried a new switch but no luck. This is the first time I ever owned a Onan (that runs) and that engine purs like a kitten. The Onan runs like it takes no effort to run.

I guess it depends on what you're huntin and how luck's runnin, some days it's hard enough to find 1 of a thing. Looking forward to the updates.
