I finally have enough time to post about this A/C I bought 6 months ago and had shipped down from Amarillo a few weeks back. It doesn't run now, but turns over and has compression. Didn't have spark, so I went to check the points and found the cover off and the arm that moves is broken so I figure that might have something to do with no fire. It came with new rear Ag's and A/C wheel weights, also has 2 speed (High-Low) on the trans-axle. It has the hydraulic lift option and the rear PTO for the tiller. Best of all it has the lower frame of a hard to find model L-10 trip bucket loader. I have done some checking around and thru "TalentedMrGreen" help, it's a pretty straight forward built on the upper frame and trip bucket to make it a complete hard to find tractor and loader. I will find a gas tank and hopefully the proper seat for the B-12 as it was a special style seat only used on the B-12. The wheel spacers for the loader aren't the factory ones, but I can get by with these for now.

 

I gave this to Dad for his 74th Birthday on September 28th and he was very excited to know he was going to have it after I get done with it.

Glad to hear it made it's way down!  What brand AG's are those?  The sides of the lugs look like my Firestones...I like the narrow AG on these.  I know with my loader, I don't need the wheel spacers when I have 6-12's on.  You may get by without them.  I have plenty of clearance, but my 8.5 AG's get cozy with the subframe.  I also have billet spacers like those...they work nice!

 

How are you with sheetmetal repair Brian?  How about upholstery?  I dug a donation out of the attic for you/your father that you may get a kick out of, but it will need a little TLC, which I know you're accustomed to!   :thumbs:

If it's metal, I can repair it. Where is the PTO handle at, I haven't found one yet. And I think I'm missing a piece of sheet metal on the steering wheel support.
