Each of my kids have a tractor in the shop right now. The Wheel Horse and the Magna will need some more attention but we had the Bolens running.

Keeping kids engaged is the key, whether its tractors or playing catch, you can't teach 'em if you don't have their attention. Good job!

Thanks for all of the encouragement! Anyone know were we can find parts for the 2-1/4 hp Tecumseh on the Play-Trac? We need a complete rebuild kit and a recoil assembly. From what I can tell they are not very common.

Very sneaky!!!  What a great way to bring home more tractors without the wife pitching a fit. "No, they're not mine! The kids bought them!!!"

I have a very cool wife that lets me buy whatever I want as long as we have the money. No worries there.
