Well at least that's the plan. I pulled the original 6 hp Briggs off and put it on the bench to clean the points,coil ( I may change coils,the points wire broke off it and I have nice replacements.),the fuel system and the recoil up. The engine and carb is all free so I am hoping for a runner when I get it back together. I am going to try to get the front axle welded back together next week. Once back together I am hoping for a decent running driving old tractor. The steering was frozen up but came loose easily. I won't have the sheet metal but it will still be a cool little 50 year old tractor to pull the recoil on the original engine,get on and putt around. If everything else goes well I may or may not look for sheet metal. To tell you the truth I am really liking the very simple,very basic looks of the "naked" 50 year old tractor. It is so simple and everything is so easy to get to and work on. Just a fun little project. Here are the pulled apart pictures. Interestingly enough,after sinking into the ground for decades the deck spindles and still free and smooth. I do have the hood also but it is in bad shape on the bottom front. I just plan to put it back together at this point and hopefully use it to putt around on or pull a trailer,etc. It if works out well I may pull it back apart later and give it a good cleaning for a little paint.

I have a later model Moto-mower that works great as a little tug for pulling a wagon around the yard.
