Bought this piece of old iron a few years back "sight unseen" off ebay because I thought it was to cheap to pass up,,,, well now that the shop is pretty much complete I think its time to get it moving towards being a useful runner, with a mower deck tucked under it.

I did "tinker" with it a bit but couldnt stick to it and get the building done.

I have an M and an MT that I have cleaned up and got running.  They are good running tractors.  The M has earned its keep (until I sell it) dragging mowers and sorts in and out of my shop when required, as well as pull starting other tractors.  If you need a second one you are welcome to come get mine.  :D

 

My M sat for three years outside after the owner was trying to rebuild the carburetor and lost the parts.  It took a lot of money to get it done, but it was worth the price to hear it start reliably.

The model M is the beginning of a "new history" with its standing cylinders. Last engine w/ standing cylinders was ~ 28 years ago a Waterloo Boy, as far as I can remember.

 

And: no guys, I didn't already live, when they build the Waterloo Boy ildeere.gif   !

Well bring in this back to the top again,with the warm up thinking this maybe the year I finish this one up. If I don't have some movement Team Green might pull my 2cyl JD card and confiscate the machine.
