I got this tractor and it looked realy bad. But once I saw that the engine would fire I was good with that. I am posting before and after pics of it.

I have a few more to post tomorrow. Thanks and hope that you guys and Gals enjoy my photos. By The way, it is that color because my dad had the Economy Tractor paint left over and it was free. Being it is my main worker. The exhaust I had redone and it's good and tight. Sounds really great. Please reply.

Thanks for the pics. Love to see another one of the orange 12's made it.
The color scheme is different, but I like it. The black and white really make the PK Orange "pop"

Those look like mean tires on there. What are they and do you have them filled as well as the 70# of Sears weights per side?

One more Q, have you ever hooked the exhaust on anything or had it be an issue? Looks good that way, but I know my tractor can tip quite a ways that way when turning deep furrows.

That's a fine looking tractor you've brought back to life there.

I've got one too, but it's Uuuuuugly. Good machines though.

You'll enjoy it.

My thoughts exactly. That pipe is getting awful close to the ground. Hopefully you've got it clamped

real solid to the foot rest.

 

Thanks for the pics, keep them coming. We like pictures.

Decals coming soon?

Nice looking tractor! Exhaust looks great, but I share the same thoughts about bottom plowing with it.

I've got to get some paint on my stuff!  That looks GOOD!

I like the exhaust.  It won't blow back into your face like mine do.

What a big improvement you have made, the tractor looks to nice to get dirty.I know the exhaust helps melt the snow for traction-good idea.  HaHa.  I also approve of the color combination, as if my opinion matters but really I do like it
