That color clashes with the Blue terribly! Best give those green things to me!

I'd like to paint them white, but I'd have to do something with those deer on the sides!  :D

I began working on my early 60s Bready/ Homelite I've owned it a little over a month now. I bought it non running but its cool and I had to have it . After taking off the wrong carb and replacing it with the proper flojet I changed out the coil for lack of spark bought her a drink of high test and on the second yank she came to life. The best part was it did not smoke and ran well and shifts in all gears. although its time will come next year for a resto my Bready 600 is next in line tear down will begin this week hope to have completed by August

Well I guess I have to get a youtube account so that you guys don't have to get a facebook account . 

 

Anyway today I swapped out the engine from the tractor in the video that you all can't see and put in another one I had, it was missing parts so luckily I was able to get what I need from my last tractor  purchase. Good thing I got the parts tractor I broke a steering arm today testing it out.

Rebuilding the motor for the Murray. Oil ring was bad and started spraying oil.

On Saturday I replaced the fuel pump on the Gravely. Went with an electric pump. Wow, what a difference. The old one was so worn it would leak back and always acted like it was running out of gas.

I installed an ATV 2" hitch receiver on the old Murray GT, now I can use a cargo carrier, insert a ball mount sans ball and still tow my sprayer, wagon, trailer, roller, etc... And even use one point hitch attachments if I wanted to, but I will stick to heavier tractors for that.image.jpeg

Sorry guys just learning this stuff....I think its because I put in in the Sears Suburban Back yard tractor club and you would have to be a member there to see it....next time I'll try posting it to my page and then sharing it.

Yup, a private group setting will do that.
