Man, both the 1057 and the Gravely are both schhhweeet tractors. Very well kept, both of them.
As for the Moldboard Plow for the WH, we need a good pic of the rear end to see the hitch situation. Can't quite see back in there.

Thanks for the pics.

Congrats on two very nice GTs. I have the same trailer but mine has been outside for 45 years so it is very rusty.  Keep yours inside.

Would you mind sharing the serial number of the 1057 for the records? Have 10 so far that appear to have been produced in 4 batches.

Numbers begin with 285, 308, 318 and 355

nice tractors whats there story?

Long story short. Not that I mind telling it, I'm just not that good at typing  :smilewink: 

Many years ago I gave my buddy a WH (don't remember model...it had an 8hp Kohler). I asked him what ever happened to it and it was long gone...but...his 92 year old grandfather was getting to old to use his WH so he asked if I would be interested in it. When he told me the price delivered was free I didn't have to think twice. I put a tube in it, cleaned the carb and replaced the fuel line and it was up and running. I used it to maintain my yard and plow snow for 5 years. This last fall the connecting rod went (don't ask...). The K241 is completely disassembled and ready for rebuild. I was able to save the crank thankfully. I will post pics of the rebuild. I am going to preserve, rather than restore. I like them original. The word patena is over used, but that's the way I like them.

 

The Gravely was given to me by another friend. His father had plans on restoring it. The K241 had all the machine work done on it. The tractor is complete and intact except the motor. I wish he buttoned up the motor after the work was done to it. I have to take the bearing plate off and clean out the mouse nest :wallbanging: . One I get the 1057 back up and running I'll get the Gravely going. 

 

Man, both the 1057 and the Gravely are both schhhweeet tractors. Very well kept, both of them.
As for the Moldboard Plow for the WH, we need a good pic of the rear end to see the hitch situation. Can't quite see back in there.

Thanks for the pics.

I am in the market for a sleeve hitch for the 1057. Those moldboard plows don't ever show up close to me, so when this one came up on ebay only 15 miles away, I jumped on it. "Buy now, think later"

 

Would you mind sharing the serial number of the 1057 for the records? Have 10 so far that appear to have been produced in 4 batches.

Numbers begin with 285, 308, 318 and 355
