IM IN LOVE!!  Very Happy  I had one of these I started bringing back from the dead, it didnt have a hood or motor but the rest was there. Everything was frozen up on mine and i got it all broke loose, made a new hood for it in metal shop, took it to my buddys to store it and a few months later he scrapped it No always wondered what kind it was and what the factory hood looked like. Looks tough with the big tires on on it

Classic look. I love it! Also the starter cup on the motor is cool. That crankshaft is a good one because it has the starter extension on it. You can put a recoil starter on it. Those tires really make it look good. I bet this thing will great capability. Does it have a differential? It would be easy to make it a live axle.

It would be sweet to be able to modify the Diff so you could lock / unlock it and run open if needed. Pavement work would want the diff open I think.

More pics!!  cheers Laughing Cool

filled the transmission with oil, and the rear pulley came right off! put a 3" on it and now need a 54" belt for it. pans are for a little speed with the abillity to mow in 1rst gear.

good deal! what year is it? my Montgomery wardis a 1985, 18 horse opposed briggs, its a BEAST!!! Stock tires, mostly stock, haven't got the playing money to do muck with it, considering its size, the rear tires are 23x9.50-12 . Its a GIANT tractor, well, at relative to a standard size tractor.
