Glad it made it part way home and that the problem was nothing to worry about.

Very nice!!! But, don't make it too pretty! Because if you make it like new, then use it and scratch it, you'll be TICKED!!! There's something about those old, beautifully ugly tractors that I REALLY LIKE!!!! Congratulations!!

It is a very cool tractor, I like it more than I thought I would. The shifter is different, almost aviation style and it has two neutrals. The bell housing is a neat feature also, actually almost every where you look there is some sort of unique feature. This was definitely a high end tractor. The guy did give me the other gas tank strap also.

If I ever get caught up with my Bolens projects I will restore my D4-12 and my D4-7. Seeing this D4-10 only increases the urge to get cracking! They are neat little tractors, especially the clutch and bellhousing set-up.

I have a feeling this one will be showing it's character for a while before restoring it. It is in really nice original condition and sometimes it is nice seeing them that way. I might have to get it running and put wheel weights on it and use it at a plow day sometime. I have never seen one plowing before :D

George, Glad you got the Hog home. I have been on the road the last three days, and laptop decided to fail first night out. Great looking tractor, I think it is a good looking machine in it's work clothes .:thumbs:

Yep, she's in pretty decent OE shape. I'm not touching my T-63 for that reason. Sure, they both have rusty patches, but enough original paint to still look great...for their age especially. Nope, never seen one plow! Likely because spare parts (like trans gears) are nearly impossible to find, and then only out of a parts tractor. If I lay hold of a 6 or 8" plow, I might even pull a plow with one of mine some day. Likely just use the V3-6 to plow once she's running in the next year, 2, or 3, as it has the same basic transaxle as many other common makes, like the JD110, so parts not an issue with it.
