I am going to make and use this thread to keep track of my H16 refresh and i call if a refresh since it's not a restore and i plan to use this tractor after i am done with it.
So i picked this up about 2 weeks ago for 200 couldn't complain it was rigged but started and ran and somewhat moved.
First thing i did was break out the power washer and degreaser and wash the poor old girl and take some assessments.
Things wrong i noticed
Steering slop needs tie rod ends (2)
needs a new pivot pin and bushings
plastic bushing under steering wheel
the rod for the idlers is bent causing them to both ride screwed up.
wrong spring for drive belt tension
needs new belts for the drive and pto
the bushing for the hydro pedal is gone
rear rims rusted from calcium (i have a new set already)
front tires shot (i have 2 new tires)
rear tires (gonna go with 23x8.5-12)
tune up plug,oil,carb rebiuld
