Well I haven't posted in a while, I thought I would share some of the new to me toys.
First up: 8 hp Sears tiller. Craigslist score. Owner said his grandpa bought it new in '76. Motor was supposedly rebuilt ~10 years ago. I think it may have been a replacement engine. Haven't ran the numbers yet.
Came with this: Sears Electric Actuator. No switch or wiring, but it did work.
I was stoked, got busy and wired it up.
Also made a custom 1 & 1/2" seat riser with switch holder. Tractor is much more comfortable to drive.
More to come.
