Alan's Garden Tractor Rescue farm

Anyways, she's a nice lady, and she needed someone to hook up her TV, Rabbit Ears, etc to her old TV. She found out I have been playing with these GT's and said she'd trade the hookup for her Uncle's old tractor. I'd have done it anyways, nice lady.
It's a B10 Allis. No pics yet as dark when I got home, but it has been neglected. My Uncle said the PO took the hood off years & years ago because he was working on it so much. The deck under it is a cobble-job from a RER simplicity. The cut is less than the width of the wheels
Engine is free, turned it over with pliers.
Weird click from the engine... Sounds for all the world like an impulse magneto. Can't figure it out and it's every 2nd revolution. Bent Valve? Maybe?
My Uncle said it hasn't moved in 25 years and doesn't remember why the PO stopped using it, but there isn't any oil in it
I'll get a better look in the morning.

Some other pictures of it.
I forgot to take a pic of the hood and grill support. The grill itself is missing.

Just a pinch of TLC and she'll be good as new. LOL
Yep, it may need a little help to get going Alan!! It looks like some of the "treasures" I've brought home!
All kidding aside... Congratulations!!! A GT, in any condition, is worth having. Especially for free!!!

Is her TV working? I bet she's a real sweetheart, but hey, that's a nice tractor, eh.
She's a really nice lady. I'd have done the hookup for her regardless of what it was.
I'll just watch for another engine, or use this one to keep my 112 alive. Who knows?

i thought my 124 was hammered when i brought her home. its been completely dissembled, and im starting to da the fenders. i have allot of work ahead of me on it. its funny how solid the sheet metal still is. a little da work and the rust and nasty paint disappears. these things seem to have been built to last literally forever. this machine had a tough life and then sat outside for an untold number of years and its still solid. amazing quality in this generation of machine regardless of who made it.
