. its obvious that there is a wealth of knowledge in this forum on all of the tractors we pursue for collecting or whatever cause. I am very appreciative to the help that is so freely provided.
As to "am I just starting" ,no the bug hit some years back. At present , I have about 26 or 27 l & g tractors including 12 LF Bolens , 4 Gibsons and an assortment of various makes and models. This is my 1 st PK

Like you, I myself like ALL Tractors for 1 reason or another. Please, PLEASE, post some pics in the Bolens section with those units, and do not be afraid to over post, NO such thing here!!!!

Sounds like a great load of a collection started already, and last but certainly NOT least, welcome to the forums;)

Hey rock farmer. Good to see you Saturday. We arrived Thursday to stake out our real estate. We like being there early so that we can scope out all the arrivals and get a look at things that may be sale able. It rained both Thursday and Friday so when the sun came out on Saturday we were quite happy. Kinda reminded me of that song from the sixties which parodied Camp Granada ( hello momma, hello poppa, here we are at Camp Granada). Sorr,y I couldn't talk further with you but I got caught up in the socializing with lookers and buyers. Did you bring anything with you or take home anything? Certainly was a lot of showing and selling going on..

I picked up a few things. No tractors or or anything like that.
Did you sell your power King?

No I didn't. Interesting story. While I was away a buyer came by and observed the piston was not going up and down upon rotating the crank. I knew the plug which was removed needed a helicoil insert and also p.o. Had loosened the head bolts so when I attempted a compression test nothing was there. I immediately took the tractor off the sale block. When i got home I pulled the head and realized they were looking at the valve ,not the piston. Everything works like it should. Good news as I was expecting a broken rod. Reappraising what I'll do with it next.
