Brian, some just cry out to be rescued. Better when they come with 'extras'.

Here is 3 pictures of the rotary plows, Gear boxs are very tight. I think they set for a long time. gaskets started leaking, but plows shires look like new on one.

Well ,the engine is ALIVE again.. :laughingteeth:I cleaned the points, and put a little gas in the carb, choked it and hit the key. She fired and died, did it one more time, same thing, so I put gas in the tank, a little more in the carb, and off she took. It smoked for maybe a minute, and then cleaned up, sounds very strong, idles well. I thought I might have to tear into the carb, but seems to be just fine. Hydro works well with no unusual noises, hydraulic mid and rear lift works, with on problems. Rear tires have a little dry cracking, but appear to be new, still have little tits on them. Front tires are another story, they will need tubes or even replaced, so will the seat, pan is gone..All in all, a great find...:dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:
