one project on hold was able to finish another

since I ran into major issues with the simplicity 700 transmission, I had to put the restoration on hold. (member classic helped me out huge with a replacement transaxle! thanks jim!)
I decided to take some time and finish up the david bradley walk behind a friend gave it to me a while back, it was in very rough shape. I had track alot of parts down, another engine but thankfully everything fairly simple to come by, I think it's a 47 or 48. not sure what I will do with it. probably just display. I will post some pics this weekend I will get the suburban out with it

Nice job on that DB Jason, and you're welcome. It was good to meet you and your Dad, and thanks for the old spark plugs! Looking at them makes me wonder about the old engines that they once fired. I have some ideas for a display case that I'm going to make for them. A neighbor plowed snow in his driveway for many years with one of those DB's. He would be out plowing his driveway with it when we went by on the school bus. That thing would really push some snow!

I used regal red rustoleum in a can and then cleared over it. it was a rough one, sat for years outside another few and it would have been scraped, the old tires and rims were shot, I saved the chains but they would need work if ever used. I got lucky finding these rims and ag tires.
