I have started another SS12 before finishing the other.....This one is for my wife and since it was cold out with snow on the ground I decided to bring it into the garage and get it prepped. This one will have a Snow Blower or what sears calls a 39" rotary snow plow on the front and gobs of weight on the rear. My wife also decided that we will be painting it back to original color, and the one that I just did in MF blue as well. I took a liking to that MF blue but I have to agree having two matching sears would be a lot cooler specialty one with a manual and one with a hydro both being a 68.
Here is her new ride
I wont mind changing the color the prep work is the worse part, plus I never got around to the fenders or rims and she has agreed to help me if I change colors ...Score!!
These are what we are using at the moment ....we love them .....but soon to be replaced by Suburbans!
Heres a lil action photo as a tease ....I do love using a left side clutch/brake combo even more so then my wheel horse. with the clutch on the left and the brake on the right.
BTW I have the McCarr-master brake liner done and wow this thing stops on a dime and leaves a nickle change thanks for that valuable info I have found here for that. Also running on and Overnight Solution ignition even the coil I got from him was made in U.S.A. so thats what I am going to do for this next one. You guys have been the great for me being able to find the info I need on my tractor adventures.
In case your wondering I am not against doing rims...lol...I am just using what tires I have until I buy tires I want then I will be doing them. So much easier to blast paint and repair with out tires mounted.
