I am at least interested, depending on the cost. Where is Syracuse? I'm about 40 miles west of Bloomington

I'm guessing that this is the first time in a few decades that this one has moved under its own power

Awesome tractor, the steel wheels and and the engine sound really make it. Cheers Mike

Great Save! What did you have to do to get it running?

Cleaned points and fiddled with carb (going to have to do a actual rebuild on the carb), different gas tank.
Had to do major honing on the cylinder just to get it smoothed out enough to run it without worrying about destroying the piston. It has a aluminum piston, that kind of surprised me being in a Z. I'm sure that if it had been a steel piston it would have been locked up solid. the cylinder was really pitted bad, it might get sleeved on down the road. The piston, rod and, crank were all as new. This tractor has not seen much use just years of neglect and unfortunately some harsh abuse. The handles are bent up pretty bad and the rollers have been broken off the cultivator and are gone. right now its just clamped together with some boards for testing and to be able to move it around.
On the plus side everything on it works and once the rest of the problems are fixed its going to be a real nice 2 wheeler and I believe it will out pull the Handiman that I already had and, I'm sure it will pull harder than the Standard Twin. One of my kids was here a short time back and wanted to see if he could "stop" it, for some perspective he is 6'3" and 260+ and a real powerhouse. He couldn't even get the engine to change tone let alone actually open the governor Most of my 2 wheelers he can stop dead, I'm still snickering every time I look at the video of him trying to stop this one.
