So I have run into another issue small but still. I seem to have 26x9.50-12 tires on the back and 19x5.50-8 on the front while they are in good shape there is some very light cracking going on so over the summer I would like to change them out. However I seem to be unable to find that size. Any ideas on where to get these tires? They are Carlisle Turf-Savers I found a catalog from Carlisle and see those Turf-Savers at wal-mart etc.. but the closest one I found for the back for example is 24x9.50-12.. thoughts?

 

Thanks,

Scott..

You can use the 24's. The first number is tire height second is bead width third is rim diameter.

Sweet that is exactly what I was looking for. I will likely have to take them to the shop up town to have the swapped out since I don't have a changer and they are surely going to be a pain with out one but if I can get the tires first it should not cost too much.

So I started working on my Gilson finally and forgot to take pictures however here are a couple. I have the frame and the motor and the rims done I have cleaned up the hub caps they are not great but better than they were. I have the body panels (hood, fenders etc..) off and sanded just trying to figure out what color Orange to use someone suggested Allis Chalmers orange but is that a good match I don't know still trying to find out. Anyway enjoy the couple of pic's.

 

New coil, rebuilt Carb (lots of RTV used on it from prior owner that is all gone now), new stator, new ignition switch, paint gaskets and a few new nuts and bolts.

 

Oh and the rims are a bit too white as compared to what they were but most of it will be covered by the hub caps so I am ok with that.

 

TTYS,

Scott..

Is that the snowblower for it there? AC Orange would be real close to that.

Yup sure is. I also have the deck but its resting against the garage for the moment while I get the tractor done. That snow blower is one heavy attachment for sure!

The paint I used on Alice was this:

"This is Custom Paint Systems Synthetic Enamel. It's Waukesha Orange,"

 

Got it from an auto paint store. About $35 a gallon.

So just picked this up today. Run's like a champ works well just missing the bar that raises and lowers the snow thrower. I have the mower deck it seems complete just needs to be cleaned up some. :) So far loving what I am learning about these little mowers/tractors. Will use it this winter and then do a restore over the summer. Not sure of the year or model of this little guy.

Nice post some pic's when you can I would love to see those AG tires. Should give it a nice beefy stance and provide good grip in the winter if you will be using for plowing/snow throwing other wise just all around dirt and mud fun! :)
