Not really sure what will become of this but the plans are pretty basic for now, just wanted a thread so that i could keep record of what I've done to it.

Plans:
20-22" front tires (done)
25"+ Rear tires
Lights
Replace all steering bushings and strengthen Tie rods.
Bumpers
Better foot rests
Gas Pedal
Weld Transaxle (if its not already solid, havent checked)
Brakes
20-25 MPH?
Install a switch to make the starter work again
Muffler
Paint

Possibilities:
Motor Swap?
4x4?
Front suspension?
Rear Suspension?

Anyways here's how it was when the kid dropped it off to me on 3/29/18 . the nut that holds the front left wheel on is broken off so the wheel doesn't stay on and just falls off.

Went out and messed with it on the 31st and got it to run, it definitely needs a carb cleaning and maybe a full rebuild but it runs. Also stole the front wheels off of one of my old builds for this, they will definitely work. Going to fix the spindle Tomorrow and maybe find a belt in the garage that will fit I hope.

It's nice to see another tractor of the same vintage as my 702 Mud Rat.  The frame and the rear end on that David Bradley are built very well.  I should know I had one.

I've thought about changing out my foot pegs for more comfortable foot rests some day, but I want to try them out and see how I like them first.

Sweet! White paint looks good and I like the look of the front wheels.
