This is what I'm starting with. There are no numbers on this thing, they are all worn off. Can someone give me a general model number? The engine, that one is easy, plenty info around on that and I'm really familiar with this one and others like it anyway.

And the starter key. " />


Believe it or not this thing starts first time every time.

I should note that there will not be much progress for a few weeks.   I'm old and the cols sucks.

I don't really have any onfo on your machine that you don't already have, but I welcome you here and look forward to your build. As I'm sure you're aware, I dig utility-based machines! What are your plans with this?

idk if the guy's thread is still on here, but go to the off road tractor build section to the last page and search for "jamus" he built one of these, but that was back in 2010-2011

Doc the plan is farm and ranch tool box, utility truck.

The more I look at it though, the 88 Jeep Wagoneer is starting to look better. Sawzall off most of the back and make it into a flatbed. No driveline fabrication that way. Might have to move to another part of the forum.

I'm going to wash the Murray today since it is warmer and get it up on a workbench. I have replacement knees, a hip and some hardware in my back (trips through the airports are interesting) so I have to get it up where I can work on it. Probably strip most of the body today.

I see that you guys post lots of pictures and I have a question about that. I don't have any cameras just my trusty cell phone are those good enough for the forum?

Cellphone pics are fine, my friend. I suspect a lot of guys are doing that. Easily 70% of my own pics were shot on my phone.

I agree with doc here.  I think the majority of us use our phones.  If you look through all of my posts, every single picture is taken from my phone camera.

That is the socket I use to short across the starter relay to get it started. That is just a good spot to store it.

Now get rid of those worthless buckets. Slap on some bigger pulleys. A straight pipe. And some ATV tires!!!

Maybe I spoke too soon....... Still have uses for the old red mower. Getting 22x11x8 ITP rears for my Christmas present to myself. For seeding and dragging a food plot the small machine is the right tool for the job. The big boy mows, tills or disks it then in with the little guy to finish it off.

Sure would like to find a better deal, I want that size and type of tire but not married to that particular one yet.

Either bear claws or swamp foxes, But it really depends on what YOU need. I just want something with decent tread thats close together for occasional road trips, 6ply, and some sidewall.

Traction on slopes and hills is my deal, If I need to go down the road I'll use the cab tractor or truck. Doing all these food plots, Ill be in fresh dirt with it most of the time, won't be mud, no good planting in mud but moist is doable.
