   Looking good! Let's just hope you won't be needing the snow blower 'til Dec.  Nice haul.

Those "open sides" are early 70s. Congratulations they are great tractors. You will enjoy them when they are running right. Good Luck, Rick

Congrats. Nice haul.

Those are the two from Wiarton, right?

I saw that ad, and thought it was a deal too.

Nice score there! Use the engine serial for year. Nothing documented on the chassis serial as yet.

Got the "parts" tractor running today......I wanted to see if it was better than the 16hp one.....Had to pull the head as the valves were sticking. Got them loose, cleaned all the mouse nest out of the fan area, put it back together with the old head gasket. There is one broken head bolt, which I will deal with when I pull the head again to change gasket. It runs pretty well, hardly any smoke. I am going to take the tin work from one of my 125s to get this one presentable....nice to have the hydraulic lift, which works good. 

As for the 165, it's still smoking like an old factory......I am going to rebuild the engine when time presents itself

Tore down the 16 hp engine this morning......has a 020 piston in it, thats real sloppy, so we are going to bore it 010 more. Also, a new rod and probably go under on the crank. The balance gears are also real sloppy, so they will be getting pulled.....I cant get the flywheel off with my puller, so my buddy at the machine shop will be tearing the crank and rest of guts out of it.

 

One thing....I went to take the governor shaft out and it wouldnt come out.......I thought it should just slide out...Any thoughts on this?
