I have had almost no time to check them over but i did get a couple hours to see if they were runnable a couple of weeks ago and i was thrilled that they both fired right up.The suburban does have a hole in the gas tank that i will patch.An interesting thing that i did notice on the XL10 Custom is that it looks like the SSI system has been converted over.It has a battery coil,a new silenoid  and new ignition switch.

Congrats on getting two nice looking tractors. Really lucky that the dash on the sub 12 isn't busted, both of the ones that I got were broken right in the top center. I agree they will both make great restoration candidates.

Glad they woke up for you. The coil retro sounds interesting, please study it when you get a chance.

Thanks guys.MH i will do that and try to get some good pictures.I'm not familiar with the Tecumseh SSI ignition nor how to convert it over so i'm curious myself and will definitely check it out and let you know what i find.

Me too. I've had to learned a lot about the SSI systems and done one conversion, going to do another one soon, be interesting to see how they did yours.

Dave,i found a few small issues.The gas tank on the Suburban needs patched,they both need need gas lines and i need to run some seafoam thru them.Looks like that about all they will need to be up and running....at least for now...but we all know how that works lol.
