Today I scored a nice 24/14. It has a loader with a snow plow and bucket, and a rototiller. I got it running after sitting outdoors all winter with just some fuel and a battery. Would only run with the choke 3/4 on as the carb is messed up but the motor didn't smoke and sounded good. It did run well enough to help me load the implements into the truck.

It is your typical 35+ yr old tractor with cracked welds, loose bolts that were carving egg shaped holes. Only enough wiring for start and run. No charging system. No brakes, one of the 2 transmissions stuck in gear. But it also had many indicators that suggest low hours. Steering was tight. No smoke at all from the engine ect.

Here we are loaded on the trailer.

And I got this cool stuff to go with it.

So, I would like to thank the admins for their work on this site and it's members as I am sure I'll learn a lot from you all. I've already got some product improvement ideas that I hope to document and share.

Sincerely,

Bob

Welcome to GTT. That is a great package. When you are talking about worn egg shaped holes, I assume that you are talking about the loader frame. I worked on one of those about thirty five years ago. I don't remember how I fixed it for an elderly friend but I think I used iron pipe to make bushings.

Check out our Manuals Section for info that you may want. Good Luck, Rick

Great score!!

You'll love the loader once you start to use it, it's unbelievable what those can do to save the back:)

Great! You'll love that blade on the loader. Much easier and quicker to use that way. PK's are easy to fix, good buy.

Nice find Bob. I am always looking out for the very same setup you found there. That FEL is super handy to have.

Thanks for all the well wishes. The basic plan is to do most of all necessary repairs and fixes, then do a complete disassembly, finish the repairs, sandblast and paint. Of course I'll share some of the more interesting points here.

FYI
I am a retired helicopter mechanic. S76 is the model of the helicopter I worked on for 37 yrs. So now I should have plenty of time to devote to this project. This will be fun!
