Starting with a roller ST12 with a non running engine. Pull the non running engine and add a 8 HP recoil start Briggs to make it run. Then add a hood and upper grill from here and a lower grill from there. A set of sears front wheels from the wheel and tire pile,then add a pair of widened for pulling rear wheels with cut Firestone 26 12 12 tires and you end up with a easy starting nice driving but ugly tractor. Its still under construction. I would like to get some paint on it this winter and I do have the parts to convert the engine over to electric start along with the recoil. I have a set of 18 inch tall 5.70 8 front tires to go on it.
Then my thoughts are to put a 3 point on it with my homemade 51 inch grader on the rear and hang a 46 inch dozer blade out front and leave it setup as a rock,dirt,snow,etc mover / grader tractor.
On a upside down note,I still haven't figured out how to make my pictures come out right side up when I post here.

It is something in the software when uploading from a phone. Job security for me.

Thanks for all your picture help Kenny. You are always on top of the picture situation and I appreciate that.
Honestly the reason I haven't posted much lately is because of the picture issue.
I am sure it has to get old chasing and flipping over pictures in peoples posts.
Thanks for taking care of my picture situation again.

I was admiring your tool caddy. I have 4 of those. They make good drawers for the work bench
