I owned a 6 horse power Panzer about 30 years ago, not sure what model it was, but they are cool tractors. The front end loader looks like it might make changing speeds a little tricky. What a neat rig!

Great story and great tractor!! I think I'd get it back to running then restore to the condition you remember it being as a kid.

I HEARD IT WAS THE TRUCK THAT GOT SCRAPPED THE PANZER NARY A SCRATCH

It coulda been the truck that got scrapped, but according to a buddy of mine the tractor was scrapped, but he was a little unclear on the details.

I got the engine pulled and on the bench tonite. I reluctantly pulled the cover on the voltage regulator expecting it to be all corroded up inside. But when I loosened the first screw something I thought was a little strange happened, I heard a small woosh of air, like when you open a new can of Folgers, and this is what I saw. The black paint on the inside of the cover was like new as was the regulator, I never would have guessed.

Did Panzers have "their own wheels" specific to a Panzer or are they a more "common" wheel. After removing the wheels today I have one thats fairly crusty and I dont think I can save it, any suggestions on Panzer wheels?

I believe they're the normal 5 lug on a 4.5" circle but they have an additional hole that lines up with a bump on the drum/hub. I've not looked at it real closely but I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to drill the hole on a new wheel or grind off the bump on the drum.

Well here it is, the first operation of the Panzer after over 35 years of sitting in a barn covered in dust.

I did a little fine tuning on the carb after the video and most of the smoke cleared up, I also put a little Marvels Mystery Oil in the fuel. I did pull the engine, clean any sludge in the "pan" which was very little, new oil, cleaned the carb, fixed some pinholes in the fuel tank and lined the tank with sealer. I did bench run the engine to test the starter/generator and clean and set the points. Afterward I did go to the backyard by the woods and scoop up a bucket of dirt, took it across the yard and dumped it, what a blastbiggrin.gif, I think Uncle Joe and Joe Jr. would be proud.salute.gif

No doubt about that.  I'm glad to hear you got her running again.

Was fun watching this on youtube but I noticed Pat blew right through that stop sign and his buddy got it on video :shoot2:

  There is supposed to be at least one of those loaders at the Zagray show in July but forgot who said they were bringing it. I think Chris told me about it at the show a couple weeks ago. They'll have more than enough sand and dirt to play in at that place.

I agree with you on this being a great find.  I restored/used mine and it is hard to see it get chipped up and scratched and dirty, but maybe I'll feel like doing it again someday.  One thing I'd say is to use it either way.  Wheels. Dandy sales had some and I got 2 off him some time ago.  I hate so say it but I have 6 of them. Sometimes you have to drill out the hole for the alighment pin depending what model you get.  Good luck!
