Just now getting around to this.

Member Sparky and his brother Darryl were both at the Ashtabula OH show. Sparky's brother mentioned he had a couple of Sears parts. A few days later we made connection, and came to an agreement. Here is what came home with me.

The Lift is for Dad's tractor (custom 6) that I will surprise him with for Christmas. This will go with another Piece I picked up.
The only thing missing on the cultivators is one locker to hold the one wheel assembly on the cultivators... I have a couple that may be modified to work. Wont be OEM, but it will be together. the points are thinned from rust, but it will make a very nice show piece.
It was nice to meet Sparky's Brother Darryl, my daughter enjoyed the conversation and the dogs, and I got a couple more pieces to figure out where to store :D

I bought a Custom 6 last year for $10 just to have it. One of these days I'll get it running. I plan on giving it to my grandson.

If the flea markets at these shows could charge for the private bartering on the side ,they could really make some money :D

Sorry, I had forgotten all about it. That's in very good shape. The grill screen is even in there.

Nice pieces. I have the upper handle piece on the 3-point. Don't think it will work on the GTV/16 due to fender configuration. If anyone reading this is needing one, send me a p.m.

After spending a few days in my e tank sauna, Dad's 3 point was ready for washing, priming, & painting.

Here is the handle and lift assembly after the e tank. 2nd pic is after a few minutes with the wire brush.

Looks great, Alan. I was just comparing your handle with the one I posted. Mine has a different/extra bend in it. My handle assy. is soaking, will pull it out and spruce it up today. I did take the model plate off before soaking. Didn't want to ruin it.
