Hey everyone.  My computer has been having MAJOR issues lately and not allowing you to do anything!!  That's why I haven't posted morning humor.  My other half finally got it fixed for us and here I am.  A pain not having any of my passwords, accounts, etc...linked anymore.  I'll get it all back. 

Anyway, I finally finished the Sears winter project that many of you already know about.  Now before I take any heat over this, I rebuild the way I like & for functional purposes.  My budget and time don't allow for purdy toys.  I need work horses and that's exactly how they end up.  I had to rebuild the carb.  Rebuild the rearend. Re-wire the entire machine.  I hand grinded all the parts and painted.  The tractor did remain 100% original except for the decals a friend made for me and the rear tires and rims.  The tires and rims I ordered from a guy on ebay in Ohio the other day.  They are off a wheelhorse 800 special.  Oh yea, seats off my 1964 Springfield 36 but that's only temporarily. I love the way it came out and there are a few areas I need to touch up but I like it and she'll do everything I need.

That looks great! Should make a great mower. It looks like you have a good sized lawn to mow.

Nice save on another old Sears. :thumbs:
I like the color scheme and the logos, but is there a back story?

I was thinking more of a Kubota wannabe, but hey, I haven't painted anything myself, so I can't throw stones.
