I know I have many projects and this is yet another, so no promises on how quick I progress on it. My buddy gave me this old gravely walk-behind tractor that I though was much newer and had a peerless 700. Well it's much older and has an integral worm gear transmission. It's old, it's cool, the motor turns freely, and if it ran I could use it. So this may be a restoration. However, if the motor can't be easily repaired, I'm not above slapping in some other type of powerplant. One last cool thing about this is that the Gravely Tractor company started in Dunbar, West Virginia, which is only 1 1/2 hours away.
