Mighty Wet today in AM, started being nicer in aft and people came out again, but most stayed in the golf carts covered up till it dried some, then more foot traffic. Lots of mud now in main aisles.

Took some pictures as I could get away, which wasn't easy.

Have a Devere here, one of better running ones I've ever seen, Have any pedal tractors Grampa??, Neatest little 1/2 scale Ford 8n. Not just a gt, but actually every part nearly is half scale and orig looking, including the flathead engine! Tuff Turf? tractor like a G Allis, Simple trctr with loade, but Diesel, Bunch of Springfeilds new and old and couple little early ones too, kinda cute. Note the Speedex start/gen bolted to body. Wonder how engine slid with that like that?? Everything was pained right over, switches, levers and all, and flat tires. A real show piece! One of nicest David Bradleys I have ever seen. Nice looking Brillion (new one to me), a Water Cooled Beeman GT? gibson lever steer, Holder articulated for $3500, didn't look bad! Little Yanmar deisel, owner claimed around 10hp! Had a 3/4" or so shaft. He started for me, ran real smooth, would be neat on small chassis, was a leaf blower or chipper he said. BUT, $375 was needed to get t hat one.

Couple Junk Clintons:   I actually saw a 2 cycle 3.5 hp Clinton like I had as a kid on go-carts at track in my area.  I bought one in 70 for about $35 to $40 new and this old one was asking $85!! Not so sure they were real durable either to last that long!  No pix, shame on me! Darn engines in this pix were only $20 a pc, and one looked real nice and orig, almost reached for it, then came to my senses, ha!

Thanks for the pic,glgrumpy! We were there Wed.,really nice day. The Euro articulators are really interesting;I'd like to own one. JD offers one,but I'm told that  that design isn't popular here,and that the design doesn't track well(stabily,I guess) on slopes....that wouldn't stop me from owning one.

If you would have reached for it, you could have bought it and resold it to me.  :poke:

I don't really know those engines, cept as youngster growing up and playing/starting into engines they were the worst ones to work on, needed most stuff fixed that I couldn't do and not so common to find for a kid. Lots of my first engines came from people's junk or rummage sales.  Briggs were always easiest to work. Lauson also was bad, but later were same as Tec engines, and they were more fussy too it seems. Never had big Kohlers or others to work on till adult. Still prefer the Kohler's now. By the time I bought and drained and cleaned a little, boxed, shipped to you, would be expensive Junk engine, ha!

I would have been tempted to buy that statue but will gladly spend the money on a G.T. instead!

Might have to build me a Rat Fink tractor!!!!       

 

Thanks for all the pictures    . :thumbs:     Rick

We could use some saw dust today out here. We've heard reports of 4-7 inches overnight. Things are drying out fast here now though. I'd swear Old buzzard has to be here somewhere.
