That's a good looking H-16 you have there and with the tiller, deck and blade and I believe you also have a tool bar you will be able to do most anything with it. Fix it up and enjoy it.

Nice Machine, looks like it will clean right up with a simple washing.

 

Looks to be in decent shape and not abused.

This one is around 1973-1974

Nice looking tractor.  I bet a good washing will make a big difference.  Hopefully you can get it running and driving without too much difficulty.  Enjoy your grandfather's tractor once you do get it running!

Wow, package deal and it has the hush tone muffler. It looks pretty original that is a bonus if no one has been in there messing things up. Great find!

Those style mufflers were standard equipment....... The hushtone kit was made available to the earlier style tractors like the 1256 and similar which came stock with the "Pepper pot" mufflers. The hushtone mufflers were much smaller than these I dont have any pictures of one at the moment.

You really lucked out. That is a really nice machine. Even has the original wheelweights(which are expensive to buy). Take your time with her, do all the maintenance and hopefully you will get to enjoy her soon. WARNING when you start and get on her the time will fly. Good Luck, Rick
