Hello guys just wanted to introduce myself here and share with you my next tractor project/s this winter. These are two different tractors I picked up 3rd one not shown just a parts tractor. I have not ran the numbers or anything just got them home so far and started tearing into one of them. I am not sure whats good or bad with either of these or even if they are the year/s that the seller said they were as he was unsure.
I have never turned a wrench on a sears tractor before so this should be fun. So far getting the steering wheel off was the hardest part lets hope it stays that way. I don't expect anything good to come out of the 3 of these (low expectations less chance of a let down) besides having two good ones when I am finally done.
Been doing some reading and hear the SSI units on these are a common pita the parts tractor supposedly was running till it lost spark. Its ok I have done some research and will get through it.
One is a manual and one is a hydo (the parts tractor is also a hydro) I am starting on the manual first because it appears to be very tight and may need less to get it finished.
These tractors will be restored and used and I know a lot of you guys may have parts for these so if you do kindly post a message here so that I can contact you when I do in case you have stuff to sell or swap.Also if you know of any good pointers or things to look out for please do tell.
