I wasn't planning to go to the Williams Grove sale, ( too much to get ready for the Westminster show)

but then I got a call from Josh, "there is a White here ,you should look at ".

 

So, anyway I have another 1650, it's fairly complete, and when we got it home I put gas in and she fired right off. I don't know if the hydro is ok or not yet, didn't get to unload, On the way home the clutch line to the slave cylinder blew out on Dad's truck, so I have to fix that first.Dan kodak92013 068.jpg Dan kodak92013 069.jpg

 

What really impressed me was that the rear tires have no dry cracks in them at all, we all know how hard they are to find!Dan kodak92013 070.jpg Dan kodak92013 071.jpg

That is a great gt you found there.  Thanks for posting!  Sorry to read about your Dad's truck.  Hope you can get it fixed quick so you can work on the new tractor.

Nice.  Now I know what that missed call was about. :D

 

You don't even have to work at it anymore.  Those Whites practically come to you now. :thumbs:

 

Is that a homemade foot control for the hydro I see behind the brake pedal?

Good eye Jim, yea, it looks like the linkage to the movement control is worn pretty bad and the spring for the lever is broken ( they almost always are ) so some one welded an angle for a foot control. It's easy enough to cut off and really didn't do any damage

 

Once I'm sure the eaton is ok , I'll need some brake parts ,front grille trim, and 3pt, Then I'm thinking about tearing it down and do a resto. The dash is in great shape , it has two cracks at the bottom bolt holes but the corners are un touched.

 

Checked the numbers and it's a 75', so I don't have to deal with the frame,and to answer OkieGt's question, it has a 16hp briggs

I always wondered which year the frame hole vanishes.  So you're saying the '75 doesn't have it?

 

This one breaks your '74 tractor streak.  That might be bad luck.  You can drop it off in my driveway. :thumbs:

Nice to have friends who will call like that. I would have dropped everything too for such a nice find. Your friend deserves at least a 12 pack. 

Can we get a picture of the White in the background? And the one way in the background?

Youll be happy with it. I just got 2 of them. 1 is a mtd and the other is a turf trac. Ol red came with a old style 10hp kohler with the carter model carb on it.

I'm fairly familiar with them, this is the second 1650 I have , as well as a 1655. which is the long frame  up grade to the 990. Also have (2) White 1050's and (2) 1600's, which are gear drive versions of the same tractor. Right now I have ten Whites . Dad has two and two Columbias .

Finally got the chance to unload this tractor, and other than the brake is completely missing ,it runs and drives great.

It just got it's status upgraded from a parts tractor to a fixer upper. I'm going to strip it in next couple a weeks and get the sand blaster after the big parts, I like doing that work in the cool fall.
