Nice,, I just picked up a 656 with a snow blower and snow blade not beat up but does need cleaned up and repainted.  I like the way you have it all laid out on the table. I will be watching.

I got started tonight on cleaning the frame and getting ready to weld up the holes I am not going to use when I put it back together , I want the frame to look real clean with no extra holes , need to sand blast and weld the holes and then primer for this part , need to do something with the pin that mounts the front axle as it is wore out bad , might machine everything for bearing for the front , have to wait and see2015 656 restoration frame002.jpg 2015 656 restoration frame001.jpg

I got the motor plate and motor set on the frame tonight , its not going as fast as I would like but since there is no snow here in western NY I guess I don't need a plow tractor at the momentDSC02272.JPG DSC02274.JPG
