Got this gem at scrapyard today. The wheel weights and hub caps caught my eye initially. Tractor has compression so some tinkering will be on agenda.

That's what Mr. Simpson said. Someone please post a pic of their SS12 so I can return hood to its former glory. These are the first GTs to arrive at scrapyard,, the others were newer and of no interest and then a Roper that appeared to have been damaged by yard staff using loader. My friend Mr Simpson came to lend a hand loading when I called to tell him where I was,, he always swings by to help start engines,,, his way of avoiding his own projects lol

I just picked this up on saturday at a swap meet.  I needed one for my SS14.  Not the exact one I need so if it does'nt fit up well enough I may let it go.

There is plenty of ways around that, Still in the $130-150 range, but better than the old SSI modules.

 

 

You could use 2 different hoods, just the different styles fins, model number would determine exact year of yours.

I had just dragged it home without looking past wheel weights. Never noticed chrome insert. May be a while before I touch this ,, have other pressing projects but it's home!

The good
1. Ignition freed up and turns with key.
2. Compression 65 lb
3. I got wheel weights and hub caps

The bad!
No spark! No doubt this is the $150 ignition module!😠
