Ha! Yeah there's more than a few things this tractor needs. It came with a snow plow too. Only factory accessory it doesn't have is the pto shaft for the axle block.

First thing I noticed is how stiff it steered. I swear after I was done riding it the veins in my arms were popping out. No need for the gym (like I'd go anyways)...
oop no grease anywhere on the tractor really and it had been a very very long time since the last. Oil is pretty dirty. Then there is this little gem-- breather "upgrade".
Fixed that but still have a little oil coming up through the air filter assy.
Clutches are keyed and abiut at the end of their life. Still has glue on liners.
I'm sure there's more I'm missing that I'll get to.

I noticed that. Definitely not burned but really rusty. Unreadable really

Re: Eight hundred and sixteen

Nice machine. Sounds like it just some TLC (and some grease). The stub axle in the axle block isn't missing, they didn't come with the tractor. Gravely made two rear PTO drive kits in the early days. One had the axle block with the shaft for the tractors that didn't have anything. The other was for the 816 tractors and didn't have the axle block, just the shaft.

You can glue new lining on your hubs or you can drill and rivet the liners on.

Ron this might be a very interesting 816. It's s/n is 20183 very late 1973 and falls in between the s/n cut off for the Limited Slip Differential. It will be interesting to see if it does indeed have LSD. Jason

LOL! I was just about to look up the serial number! We still need a test to determine if it's limited slip without pulling the engine.

The production order shown here has the original date of Nov 16th 1970 for the CCKA-MS/2111G model as specified for Gravely. The same order sheet would be reused and revised in later model years. Note the Oct 3rd 1973 date written in at the bottom of page.
