Re: What did you do to/with your Gravely today... restart 2.0

Hi
As I learnt from Dad when I was a kid in the 50s, we had an american bought by Grandpa in 1939 and another gardener of his friends bought one in 1940 after testing with success Grandpa's D and it was an english. Dad explained that the war made the american gravelys impossible to be imported and the result was that the D would be made in England. It remains a few parts of this D as the owner left her when he changed in late 50s for an Imperial D. In my garage still is the big cleated wheel, some aluminium parts, pinions and shafts and the decal (this decal is at J Langille so you can see it) andyou can see that the town of production was "Totnes" devon. Later the factory of Gravely Overseas went to BUckfastleigh, 5 miles from Totnes, exactly at "Dart Mill" (Dart being the name of the river)Now there is an historical steam railway for tourists between both towns.
This is the history as I know since my childhood

Had both the 5260 and Pro 16 out for a little fresh air, just to run them. Its 40 degrees in January! (In Maine.) Also took the old Pro 16 to a friend to use. He has one machine down and its fun to share the wealth!

Put some new kicks on the 10A.

Worked on the wheels earlier in the week and got the tires mounted today.

Looks real good to me.
I would be afraid to put a small bend or warp spot on my wheel putting it in a vice, guess you gotta know the right amount of pressure to put on it.

Bright sunny day here in Northern Michigan. My baby is kinda lonely in the garage. Thought I?d share a glamour shot of my rear weight setup.

Got some quality time with my new-to-me 8hp Mountaineer.

Made some major progress!

I?d guess about 175lbs. the plates are about 60 each and the rack is maybe 50.

Nothing will stop your tractor with that kind of weight on the back. The rack turned out well, and I like the lift handles too.
