Lol, lol, i know what you mean !!! oh my, Gilson tractors oh boy !!
My friend has a WW Grinder 223C chipper/grinder that is powered by a newer I/C 8 hp Briggs im trying to get off him cheap, im doing the same thing as you by working on his stuff, i keep offering sweet deals but he is having trouble letting it go so im working him, it has sat for at least 1 1/2 years and knowing him it will sit for another 5 before he sells it, was a running working unit when parked and i have been walking by it for months. Now that i have been offered a lister Petter AC2 of 12 hp i could re-power it with and the coil on the 8 hp Briggs that is currently powering my smaller chipper/shredder is bad im really pushing for it not just for the unit but the engine.
It never does stop and this is between house/home/yard/part time job and full time job,....sometime you feel like your just banging you head against the wall
The tube frame Bolens sounds like a sweetheart waiting for a lover to find her, same with the Sears, snatch them up Rick !!!!! best of luck and good working weather
