My Sears Suburbans And St1O Custom

The first photo is kinda what it looked like when I brought home. The Second one was 7 month later. First done. Then I add more to it a few things at a time. The 4th photo is it at a show also with my front snow plow and rear scraper blade and also took my turning plow and disc to show as well. Hope that you guys like it.
The gas tank had some pin holes that leaked gas, That is when I had the stainless steel tank made for the tractor, never rust again. I also put on the electric fuel pump and regulator and gas pressure gauge to make sure there was just right fuel pressure. And put on a brand new Lawson carb, yes brand new.
The hub caps I got from the cub cadet Dealer the don,t have anything stanped in to them, Just plain babymoons as I like to call them. It took me a while to break down and buy those at $175.00 for the Set of 4 was a big chunk of money. But I love them now and many people like and ask about them at the show. Anyway That my first tractor and second post in here.

You obviously have taken a lot of time on the prep and finish of the tractor and the attachments. Thanks for sharing them with us.

Those baby moons sure make a difference!

That is one good looking GT. I bet that gas tank really gets the attention when you pop the hood. The Baby Moons are a nice touch.

Yes the tank I love it and my buddy with the tig welder made it for me at work.The old tank had the smallest holes could not see them.I tried jb weld and that would not work more than a week and after havine to take every thing apart to fix it my friend said he could make.He a good buddy and only charged me $20.oo.I did the polishing my self.It took about 3 hours but it does catch the eyes of many at the shows.Most think it a pulling tractors.And then there the guys that say I have or had one that is the same but it don,t look as good as mine.Thats what showing is about.I love it then you got the mama,s that want to put there kids on it for a pic.It o.k. if the ask.Some time there are the kids that just jump on it.That a easy fix I just crank the engine there ready to get of then.Lol
