Many of u know about my 1968 1107 I got a while back and put new sheet metal on that I got off thecookiemonster. Well I havnt been on here for a while and the tractor has gone through a ton of changes. First off I did a mild engine build. I port and polished the intake and exhaust ports, modifed the intake tube, put a 10hp carb on it, shave the cylinder head, and shaved the eyebrows. And of course custon header and air cleaner.

The tractor it self needs a lot of work. The rear axle nut threads are now missing so I got a tube with set screws holding brake and tire on, and the rear end leaks a ton of oil. Other than that she looks about the same.

Yes it did. I built it mainly for pulling. I have I run it on 93 octane or above. Throttle response got way quicker, also torque came up a ton.

That thing did run rough, I remember.  I ain't been on much either...  Glad to hear that it's coming along.  There was a post on here about serial numbers... I wonder if that sheet metal has the serial number for that 1107 I parted out...
