Went up north into the backwoods of IL, yesterday, to pickup a HUGE Bushhog, for its trip out east. While I was there stuff started to jump onto the open area in the back of my trailer! I fought it off for a while, but finally gave in let them ride home. Besides I needed some counter weight for the big hog on the front.

We scored some interesting stuff, like a complete pioneer model A engine, attached to some kind of snow blower, a nearly perfect set of Wards knobby tires/rims, a GreatLlakes Chief/plow and sickle, the remains of a Bradley baby Handiman, and  a couple more walkers, two modern small engines and a milk crate full of Clinton parts. The smell of rotten gas just about over whelms you as you walk by the trailer.

its mostly parts for other things.. the pioneer engine could go on a Pond walker, as it was an optional power unit. There's a K-90 kolher mounted on the Chief that don't belong there, the knobby tires will look great on my model D Simplicity, as its originals were shot. One unit has a 700 Clinton/gear reducer on it.  I hate to see the stuff go to the scrap yard. I did turn down a Bolen super versi-matic that was to cobbled to fix, but had its nose, tank and kolher hood still on it. Cant save them all.

Good scores, Jeff.  Those Pioneers are pretty unusual, but if you need info I do have the dealer manuals here in line to get scanned.

Well we got the Pioneer to fire up and run. This is a strange engine, as the air filter is inside the fan house and the carb works backwards to what most normal ones do.  I don't have a correct tractor for it yet, so I mounted it on the Frankenstein DB I made a couple yrs back, to use as a  test bed. Put a lawn roller on the tractor and went for short run on Sunday, but of course it started to rain, so I had to put it away.  So far this load of stuff has been pretty good. Since it came from a barn and was indoors, I believe that saved it from the slow death of the outdoors.
