Okay now that I have my hood nearly ready to go I'm starting to get excited about moving farther along with this project.
Tonight I ordered some vinyl "David Bradley" decals for the hood and also some hand grips for the handle bars.
I'm still not going to do anything with the tractor or implements until I get my garden put in but as soon as it's done I'm planning on stripping things down....sandblasting them to bare metal and then painting it all up.
So one thing that I definitely want to do is to replace the tires with something new. I honestly don't know that it needs new tires but the ones that are currently on the tractor are a little weather cracked and probably only at about 40% - 50% tread and I can't help but think that new tires will give a better grip when plowing.
The AG tires that I posted in some earlier photos are on 15" rims but these don't seem to be readily available. Thankfully I also have a set of 16" rims with the original "knobby" style of tires that I would like to put some AG tires on and also move my wheel weights from the 15" to the 16".
Tonight I was doing some surfing and came across the following link for some AG style tires that I hope will work with my tractor.
Compared to most garden tractor tires these seem to be a good buy but I want to make sure that they will fit my rims.
Also, when I emailed the seller he seemed pretty adamant about giving him a call concerning these tires. That makes me think that there is probably a better deal available if we can bypass the ebay/paypal fees by buying direct from his company.
Anyway, here's the link: http://www.ebay.com/..._qi=RTM1562571
Please let me know if these are ones that will work for me.
Thanks a lot.
