Just thought I would post the only pic I have of the tractor I built when I was 11. my little brother is hidden behind the left rear wheel, and my dad is helping to figure out the alignment of the flat belt pulleys used for the "clutch". Taken about 1975.

Id get it to and get it fixed up. That neat having the pictures and the story. Seeing some current pictures would be cool. I think this could be a great winter project for you.

If that photo wasn't color, I'd swear it was taken during the depression. Suitable for framing.

Looks like a keeper. Do you remember what the engine was? What is in the flywheel spokes?
