 I was loading tractors this morning to bring home from the Penfeild show.  A couple guys from the swap meet were loaded up and headed for the gate.  they stopped to talk to the G.T. chairman.   I lightened their load and my wallet.  This little A.C.was crying to go home with me.

I plan on doing a build up for the grandsons this time.    It came with a free set of pliers    Rick

Thanks,    The tins are in great condition.  And of course the P.O. says it" runs good just needs a belt".  If needed I have another motor and transaxle.  Just waiting to see what direction the grandsons want to go.   Not often you get a "custom" seat like that.   The P.O. threw that in for free.  Rick

Those plyers are older than You or me! Made in USA no doubt! You'll never wear them out or break them! But, You might loose them! I say paint then bright orange right away!

That's a nice little AC, it looks to be in great shape. Good luck with it!

I wonder if the PO back filled the hole after they removed the seat? :D

Nice job!  You won't find pliers like that very often!  :D

 

Oh, and that tractor looks good, too.  I like the way the old Allis machines look.

Looks like it should make for a fairly easy fix-up project. It's the same frame as my Homesteader but with different dash tower and front sheet metal. Make sure the frame pivot point is freed up and well lubed.

There's a good candidate for a resto.

I've heard those decks do a great job, they really follow the contours.
