This little tractor had not run in over a decade. Got it fired up today and went for a couple mi. drive. Everthing seemed to work fine but at 15 degrees it was a cold ride and I was glad to get back to the shop. Funny thing though, everytime I let go of the steering wheel the tractor would turn and go West. Tom I think its home sick, don't you? Rod.

The rims and tires were mounted on the tractor when it was brought to me, those are a couple of the items I should not have to do any work to. Rod.

Rod, nice little tractor, is it a shuttle shift tranny? I noticed something different than on ours, the long shift handle on the left side, that would make it a really handy tractor.

Eric, The engine lost oil and spun a con rod, then the tractor sat for about 15 yrs waiting to be repaired. It got the works, radiator to clutch and everything in between. Looks like it should be a neat little tractor when finished.
