The Husky 800 that my Grandfather bought new in '63 is now mine.
It was re engined with a Tecumseh HH100 probably 35 years ago. The Wisconsin engine is LONG Gone and what I remember was at the time it was cheaper to put an engine in it than rebuild the Wisconsin. I wa a young-un then and was not consulted about the engine.
I have done some repair work on in over the years whenever I would visit home. This last trip to the east coast it became mine.
I am doing all that work on it that any 50+ year old machine needs.
It is back runable but its issues are catching up to it.
At the moment it is undergoing a front end rebuild since the wheel bearings were non existant. The clutch is getting relined. All the belts are being replaced. The PTO shaft needed new bearings, that project is done. I have been acquiring implements for it since the implements it had turned to iron powder over the years of sitting in sea salt spray.
My wife wants to "mini farm" with it, so I have acquired a tiller for it and a Brinly Plow. I will make a sleeve hitch for it soon.
I also got another mower deck for it since it will also be used to mow the field.
Its getting new tires all around since not even slime will keep the current ones from leaking.
It is getting 3 rib on the front and Ag lug on the back.
I will have to be thoughty about taking pictures as I work on it.
I appreciate what I have found here to help this project go smoothly.
