Picked up a Bolens and a White a couple weeks ago.  Got the Bolens running right off but the White was missing the Rear wheel.  PO had it but forgot the key to the bldg. where we were at..  Met him yesterday morning and got the wheel.  Pulled it up to the shop, gave it a bath and started in on it.  Had some linkage underneath that was real stiff so hoisted the front up to get at it.  Tractor is a little rough, engine is free and has spark, gas tank had 2 little cracks that were fixed last night.  Hope to get the engine running this morning.  Then see what I have for a hydro.  Have a new filter and Northland Transdraulic oil for it.

Want to make a bar with center loop for the chain hoist and a chain hook on each end to get a straight up pull on the front axle.

Got things under there loosened up good except for the drive shaft.  Have the belt off as the cable is froze up also.  Pulled the head to see what the situation was in there as was surprised.  Not much carbon at all, valve seat were nice and shiny.  Must have got lucky and it stopped with all 4 valves closed.  Very little cleaning with a brass brush and it was good to go.

Back together it fired right off.  Had the wheels blocked up so tried the hydro out.  Little stiff at first but then worked good, both directions and both speeds.  Now to get the hydro valve freed up as it is seized.  Not linkage either.  It will come, just take little time for PB to work.
