I found it here:   http://www.oileater....rDegreaser.html

 

 

 

Edit: Found it at O'Reilly's for $12.99 a gallon!

 

 

I never knew that they had their own site, nice to know for when I run out.

If you have a Costco near by they have it , I get two gallons plus a full hand bottle for about 18 bucks.

Sub12, Build is coming along nice!, keep it moving :thumbs:

Looks like your coming along nicely on the resto job.  :thumbs: 

I see you have a set of cast iron wheel weights, I leave mine on all yr long helps with traction and stability.

Keep the pictures coming, the best one will be when it's all done and your driving it.

Good Stuff.

This tractor isn't going to be doing much work, I have enough other tractors to mow with. This one will most likely only go to the local festivals and come out on nice warm days. And I have a summer job.

Good Stuff. 

The weights are going to get done once the tractor is done, my brother has another set that may just find their way onto it as well. I am going to take my weights and chains off of my allis soon, already have the plow off. I only have a few more things to finish painting before it can be complete again. The hood being the biggest thing I need to finish.

I hope you get it done on time. I thought about restoring an M, my brother has one and I almost bought one that would have needed to be a restoration to bring it back to life.

Sub12, I don't know how I missed this project, but you are doing a great job. Glad to see you took it all the way down and got everything clean, fixed and painted. This 12 is going to look great  when you get it done. Does your school have any kind over outline to follow along when you do one of these restoration projects?  I would like to see whatever they give you at the start and also what they use to judge the projects at the end. I am trying to start up 4H restoration projects here in my Co.4H.

 

Keep up the GREAT work !! :thumbs:

Keep at it, those senior projects can get hectic. I built myself a 6x10 utility trailer for my senior project and that was quite an undertaking and I ended up showing it before the ramps were built and the fenders mounted... but that didn't hurt my score, since I stated those features were an extra feature available that was designed into the pricing, which I adjusted to get rid of those lol. Biggest thing you need to know about most senior projects that you get to choose the project yourself is that as long as you get the project operational then you can BS your way through the presentation, which you definitely want to be prepared for.... an practice it a couple times before the big day. I do have to say that (not to steal your thunder) your Sears restoration is coming together quite well, and with a high quality of work, I mean you scrubbed the tires in a wash basin even! And if you are already on to the engine than you are well over half way, if not three quarters. And based on the speed you are working, I would estimate mid April completion at the latest, but who knows, you may just bust butt just to finish it by next month to prove me wrong! lol
