So found out that the reason why it wouldnt start was because the starter went bad, so fixing that and going to replace all the wires since none of its done right, starting off by tearing down the whole tractor down to the frame, motor will be pulled this weekend aswel as the transmission. This is my first restoration so any help is greatly appreciated!

Be sure to take lots of pictures, so when it comes time to reassemble you will know how to put the parts together.

Thats all hes charging me for. Only paying for the materials and him painting it is free. id do it but by the time i get the materials i could have someone else spray it. and i have nowhere to spray anything that big.

Sounds like another "hog" being brought back to life. Thanks to Daniels restoration thread I have learned a lot about these great tractors. I'm not sure they were ever sold up here. Looking forward to your pics.

so didnt make off too good yesterday. decided to try to start it again and still wouldnt start, so decided to test it and see how many amps were going in and out of it. it had 12.5 amps going into it and wasnt sending any out while trying to start it. Got an estimate on a rebuild of it and the guy told me $40.00 labor + parts. so im on hold until then. im thinking about leaving it how it is and just changing the fluids etc to make it run right. still on a hunt for either another original front rim for it or 2 new ones that are the same size/style. I want to leave the ag's on the rear and put a set of tri ribs on the front. and according to the wire diagram i found for it the thing is completely wired wrong so im going to rip that mess out and rewire all of that to the diagrams standards. also need the complete air filter setup, tube and all. any help finding parts would be greatly appreciated!

So im relatively new to this but i need the air filter setup. all i have is everything up to the carb. and i know its not good for it to run it without an air filter. could anybody point me towards what all i need?

On a previous post I have 2 pics of the air filter. They aren't the best but will hopefully give some idea what you are looking for. Here's the link:http://gardentractor...993/#post107663. The pic is of my son's tractor, but my Bolens with the Wisconsin engine has the same setup and uses the same filter.If you could find a blown engine with the breather still on you would have a replacement. Hope this helps a little.
I also found this link which has a good diagram of the breather assembly:http://www.pittauto...._tra_series.pdf
