Thanks for all the kind words.  If anyone has any pictures showing a stock 1973 with decals I'd like to see them so I can get an idea of what I need to order. 


That is nice looker!  I noticed non orig hood decals, BUT, those look pretty nice really!  I like that more Modern Economy Tractor one near front.   I paint my rear wheels Black centers or Red sometimes, and outers are silver like big tractors. I never cared for the all black wheels either. Even the newer PK"s have white which looks better than black. Like the Muffler! I have a Plastic King that I put older drive in and have mine down low like that, just about same area. I like stacks, but then you end up with smell in your face for sure. I have done that before too.

The stack was pretty loud also.  I noticed I was was say "huh" a lot after mowing ;-)

I'm getting my Jim Dandy back together now. Nice job. What brand and color is the paint?
