Glad you had a good trip.I know the northern states have been hit with the cold white stuff already.

Wife & I will be traveling 280 mile (1 way) for some GT items soon. Looking forward to the trip.

Still need to figure this out:

Then neighbor came over and it was time for :beer:  :beer:  :beer:

But still had the 3 point to install, also in this picture is the orange belt guard:

Installed, will either need to find an original seat or bend the handle to clear.

Some one else on here had trouble with the 3 point handle rubbing the tire. I guess I will have to keep it in the up position when not in use. Need to go to town tomorrow and pick up a few 7/16 bolts and a pin for the 3 point.

 

Also picked up a nice set of Sears original tires. The ones on the tractor are weather checked. My original rims seem to be wider than the replacements.

Nice looking Sears and thanks for posting the pics. I would say the trip was definitely worth it. Quality time with the wife is an added bonus.
