Received in the mail a NOS grill- paint not perfect, looks like something dripped on it and it has some small rusted areas, but still a nice grill. Interesting is that it is not pure white. More of an off white color. May see if they can scan the color at the local NAPA store. Picked up a sign a gentleman I met earlier at a tractor show had been holding for me. It looks better in the picture than it really is- this is an older sign that was used out side. But still a great find to put on my sheds wall.image.jpg

The grill looks really nice and I would love to have a sign like that for the shop!! :thumbs:

 

Did you ever get those brochures you were waiting on? And have you had time to look up that phone number to the place that sold the JB with the loader?

I will get a chance to see the brochures and literature this week if all goes according to plan. I will email you the phone number for the fel guy. I did call him and he said he had sold it.m

I picked these up off eBay this week. They match the JB parts exactly. Glen Pettit was the seller. He also sent me a T-handle for the JB as well. I want to try the Gravely t-handle, since it seems to be an exact replacement for the BH t-handle.image.jpg

He said he sold it. I did not ask him who, but figured it was none of us. Was hoping it was a Bush Hog collector and not some one who was going to use it as a worker.

I'll ask around to the local clubs. I know there's some big collectors up here who have no interest of being online. 

 

There have been a few locally that I've past one that not shortly after have sold. When I spoke to the sellers, the description of the man they tell me sounds like the same person.

Peter, I need some really good photos of the sub-frame that mounts to the tractor frame, the loader mounts to this sub-frame. I have an Ark 500 loader, but need to fab the sub-frame to fit it to a JB. I would love to get some measurements and steel specs..

Scott, you can find anything.  Sadly, my hobby has stalled at the moment.  Desire is alive & well, just the time isn't there for much.
