I've attempted to restore one, as you will see when you come up here, it's still in pieces and breaks my heart when I come home and see it like that every day. The engine is what's stalled the project dead in it's tracks.

 

I would get her running and leave her as is, you could have a good, the bad & the ugly contest with them :)

I know what you mean, I am still gathering parts and working on my M/W Squire 6 built by Bolens. I am finally getting back to it now.

It's so hard to find time to really restore one anymore.  Takes me 1 to 2 years to get one done from the ground up.  I'll have a couple BH trailer queens when I finish the V4-6, but that might be it.  The rest will be in natural dress except for the JBI with the TJD engine.  She's repainted, but gets worked.

I've been thinking about bringing everything down to my basement to work on it over the winter and open some space in the shed....but then I'll have a GT in the basement and that may open all sorts of doors I don't want to open. Plus getting it back out might be troublesome.

As much cold weather as Y'all have up there, I would have a way to get in and out of the basement with a GT. Mom and Dad's place in IN. has an outside entrance into their basement that is big enough to get a GT in and out, might have to winch it as it's pretty steep.

LOL, we have the bulkhead in the back, I would have to winch it up in order to get it out, but at this rate of repair (I have no children) when my kids are old enough, they can help me bring it up!

You could restore the subassemblies n the basement over the winter then reassemble in the spring. You mentioned the engine as a stumbling block. That shoould be easy to get in and out. Work on one piece at a time and it won't seem so overwhelming.

I need an engine, I rebuilt the transaxle over the summer, got it together and its now sitting in the garage. I have a donor D4-10 sitting on the side of the house, but that engine is locked up. 

 

I may move everything into the basement over the next few weeks.

S7-D that would work for a D4-7. The gov gave out on the one I am restoring after I 1st got it when my friend Jason was riding it and the engine seized. Crankshaft is toast. I took the engine out, and decided at the time when I have no other bush hogs, that I'd restore it & look for another engine.

Yes, I did crawl all over them. I went over 3 or 4 times to check on them. He was going to sell them to me if you had backed out. He listed them on craigs list from Joplin. If he had listed them in Springfield I would have seen them a lot sooner. I am very happy you got them,again congrats!

Got my 2 D4-10's home after dropping Kenny's FF off. Here is a couple photos of them on the trailer after getting fuel on OK., still had to finish the drive home them home. They are still on the trailer along with the MM I took to plow day and the Jac. and the JD216 I picked up at Daniels.
