Re: Restore to stock, to look good, or just work better?

Its funny you say that DYT. My wife wanted to learn how to use my L. Well I dont eaven have a remote for the PTO, so when I was showing her how to throttle down, lightly engage rev, then boot the lever into gear. She said "Forget this, Its a deth trap!!!"

No safety interface.. It was made back in the days when the general public had common sense and weren't sue happy.......

BTW...I added the remote PTO engaging linkage because when I put on my square chute snowblower, it is big time scary to have your hands down there when that thing starts to spin.....

You can also find them on Ebay pretty cheap. get the manual from www.oldgravelys.net to make sure you get all the little parts for it. I just put one on my L8 and it really makes a big difference.

ya defently number one on the list. I think it had one at one time. Someone made up a lever down on the advance casting, and it has a gide loop up on the bars, so I think it had one at one time. This LI is kinda a "bitza" tractor, so who knows whats been were.

Re: Restore to stock, to look good, or just work better?

My first L came with a spare remote PTO lever...sat in the barn for some time now....now it's gonna go on the "47"

Hey DYT!!
Love that signature
Found one of those RED tractor lawn sprinklers today

Seems everybody has a green one....trouble is they ain't RIPE yet...

I miss the old days when someone who owned a tractor had a plow for it and kept it in a barn. A CUT was something that bled and pressing 1 just made a sound in your ear. Mostly I miss the UPS girl....
