Made a deal wth Larry and i am now the proud owner of one sad looking Amigo.    Brought it home this afternoon or rather I took it to my brothers shop since there is no room in mine.   It is now in line with the rest of my projects.

The owner of a local mower shop made  me a good deal on a 6hp tech. they had rebuilt and it should bolt right on the Amigo.    Rick

You got lucky finding those parts!! That will make things a whole lot easier. Those Amigo tractors look to have a pretty stout drivetrain.

I've been working some on the amigo.  It's been partially dismantled for a while.  It now has new bearings ,seals, and bushings. Most of the removable parts have been cleaned and repainted.  Still need to work over the chassis, tires/wheels.    Once we got the shift levers made I got to ride it around some before dismantling.

It's a lot like having  a hydrastat.            Rick

I found red paint!  

All it took was a putty knife, wire brush, and every can I had of degreaser, carb/choke cleaner, brake clean,  and precision parts cleaner. 

Oh yeah,  and some elbow grease.

This tractor had not been cleaned in a long time. Hopefully in a few days it will be repainted.        Rick

Man, that is a beast of a frame/transaxle. Hope you have enough paint to color match that red. Looking good so far!!

According to the magazine articles I've read, IH red and white are the closest colors.  I took that to mean IH white also.  I tried The IH white on the wheels.  Didn't think it was quite correct, so I repainted them with more of a pure white.  Still have a ways to go.  The hood and grill are going to be a pain.  Also need to redo the seat .The wife is going to make me a drawstring vinyl red/white seat cover. (Even though I did use her table for a workbench)  :D ​         Rick

Yes, IH white is more or less a cream color.  This tractor should be awesome looking when it's completed.  I may be into Bush Hogs, but if one of these comes available to me that I can afford, I'm getting one!
