Jeff Lauber stopped by my Mom and Dad's place in IN and dropped off the BH HD-12 today and it's safe and sound in the garage awaiting me to come get it. Here's the photos of it. They had to roll it off as it would not start, so I will have to mess with it a little to load it on my trailer.

Too bad it's not mine, :wallbanging:  it belongs to member "sacsr". I am hauling it on out to PA next month to meet with Scott at the Dover show.

 

Sorry Scott, I just had to post it this way. :poke:

Oh, it would be so temping to just mail Scott a cheque, and then

go into hiding for a couple of years. :smilewink:

 

I feel for you Brian. I went through 6 months of Hog sitting when I had

George's HD-12 in my stable. It was tough, knowing it was eventually

going to leave. I found the best thing to do, was drive it. :D  :D

Don't think of it as "sitting."  Call it "fostering."  After all, you knew it was eventually going to a good home. :smilewink:

I had a couple of weak moments, and thought about having George red flagged at the border. :smilewink:

Big thanks goes out to Jeff for getting both Brian's and my tractor down to Brian's parents, and Brian's parents for storing it!

Man I hope you can get it going, I know it was running a couple of weeks ago, may just be from sitting up so long.

Looking forward to serving it in person in Dover. I am going to be up there late Friday for sure and being at the show on Saurday.

I got to see that tractor in person today ( along with the Suburban) when Jeff stopped by here right before he took it to Brians parents house a few minutes from here. It is a very solid looking tractor,looks like a good resto candidate. It was great meeting you Jeff and thanks for the little present that you dropped off for me too.

Jim, I wondered if he was stopping by your place when he said he had to stop in Veedersburg on the way in. The little 400 should be a good little tractor for my Daughter to restore.

Jeff said that they drove it on, so I'm thinking it might need a touch up on the points and maybe fresh gas, Dad said the gas smelled bad. Jeff said it had very weak spark and the battery was down so I'm thinking a new plug, charged up the battery and fresh gas might do the trick.

Brian the gas definitely smelled old,so I am sure fresh gas will be a big help. BTW if I wasn't already really wanting a BH,thanks,now I really want a HD12 lol. The 400 looked like a good restoration project....but the front wheel set up......lol. Looks like you will have a few parts to chase but it comes with a snow plow and they are harder to find for that style so that is  definitely a plus.

Yeah, I'm not sure why those on there, but for the whaty I gave for it  I won't get hurt on it.  I need to check with the guy I bought it from because I thought it had the belt guards on it and muffler shield too.

Brian I was traveling yesterday and the thread "title" did not register with me. You are toooo funny! Hey I have reached my quota on HD's , so what ever I find next, either replaces what I have collected or the info will be shared. Either way, a HD-12 will be available.

I am betting you are right on the bad gas and the points needing cleaned up. Be interested if, after looking at it, you think the dual rear lights were installed at the factory. Would be the first I have seen on a Bush Hog. I think Daniel had another model that had dual rear lights as well.n

I don't think the plow is attached to it correctly........just a fyi
