Everyone likes pictures

Pulled some cubs out of the shed for cleaning and running. Most haven't been started in 3 years. All started but the 102. Carb clogged, glass bowl clogged, fuel line clogged. Ordered parts to put it back with new.

Beautiful Tractors.

 

The 102 is my favorite tractor.

 

1606 is basically the same as my 582 but with a factory equipped creeper gear.Really good tractor.

 

I'm having trouble with the clutch on the 582 slipping so it's going to have to come apart.I'm going to replace the Rag Joint with a solid mount and upgrade the teaser spring to a 5/8" long Spacer and spring steel 5/8" lock washer and replace both Pilot bushings.My teaser spring appears to be missing Unless they put it between the pressure plates?That's what it's acting like anyway.It slips horribly in 2nd and 3rd gear but the disk has plenty material on it.

 

Won't know 100% till I get her apart.I know my Rag joint is shot and the pilot bushings atleast the front one is shot.

 

Can you pull your clutch pedal side panel off yous 1606 and get a good pic of your Teaser spring area please? It would help me alot.

We need to pull the rest of them out. 8 more in the other sheds.

The 1606 is fantastic. Although it's only been driven around. The 102 is one of my favorites as well. Great look. Love the grill

None of those 4 have touched a blade of grass since they were finished.

Them are nice.  I've given thought of getting a spare tractor and restoring mine, but I really don't have the time for that kind of project right now.  If I were to have it restored by someone else it would elevate the cost of my tractor well above what it is worth, but honestly I couldn't buy a new tractor that is half the machine for that much.  I think in a year or so I will keep an eye out for restored tractors like these ones.  There is just something about a fresh, new machine, especially then they are old machines.

There is more money invested into these tractors than they are worth. Me and dad did all of them together.

Paid 300 to 400 for a complete tractor.

Probably have another 1000 in the restore with all the parts.

They all have rebuilt motors too execpt the 1606.

Very nice looking tractors.  I have  2 CC but they are both working tractors.  LT1018 is the one the Mrs. uses.  My 1512 has a bad hydro pump so hasn't been used a lot since I got it last spring.  My other tractors are mainly Bolens with one White threw in for good measure.  All working tractors.

Very nice tractors you have there. Yup, you can't sell them for what you have into them, but you won't find that kind of quality and durability today. I'm fully rebuilding/ restoring a PK right now for my own use. I'm kind of going overboard on it, but I want it to last and be dependable. With all the hard work and countless hours I have into it, I'll be sure to take good care of it. We live in a time of throw away machines, but there are plenty of good old rebuildable machines out there if we are willing to resurrect them. One day there will be no more,so it's a good time to pick something up, rebuild it, and have a machine that will last for decades. You did a great job on restoring those machines, and I believe the value of them will climb in the future.

You are right.

None of the 12 restored are for sale or will be. They will be in the family as long as I am alive. And after I'm gone I hope my son keeps them and passes them onto his children.

My 125 CC will never be that nice, but you sure do make me want to work on it
