Pics as promised of the stuff that came with it. Most rusted badly. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364309686.902100.jpg

Tiller which is decent, leaking front seal. Common, oak floor in trailer got a gear oil soaking

Power angle 54" snow/dirt plow. Rusted badly but it's fixable. (That is what happens to them left outside and a back hoe pushes dirt 1/2 on it. Years ago.

No complete restore now, just replacing the busted dash, cleaning it up and getting it running well first. Maybe a winter project restore next year. I've got to much other stuff going on now.

I hate the POS plastic dashes that bolens went too !! Stupid Stupid Stupid !! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364522568.604450.jpg <br /><br />It's busted in more places then not. <br /><br />I've got a dash decal coming and I'll use the metal dash that I had for something else. <br /><br />I also fixed the bad ignition switch after I found out that an aftermarket one is not available as an exact match. Cleaned it up by spraying contact cleaner in it and blowing it out, did it a few times. Tested it on another tractor. Worked great. <br /><br />Now I just have to get this, I know napa has them. The terminals are rusted badly, not worth trying to clean up. <br /><br />ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364522871.504322.jpg <br /><br />I also pulled the solenoid out, took that apart and cleaned the contacts inside with a file. Had to drill the rivets out, but replaced then with 6-32 stainless bolts. <br /><br />ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364524085.677172.jpg <br /><br />Getting thrifty in my old age, too cheap to buy a new one.

That, and you have more stainless hardware laying around than the average Home Depot.

 

 

Thrifty, my butt.

In # 4, 6, 8, 10 & 12 I bet I do. At least 100 lbs of it. Bought that at a electronic assembly place that was closing years ago. Think I paid $25 bucks for it all. Need any small stuff, I'll hook you up. : )
