Re: MTF's Machine of the Month - July 2012

Thanks guys, it's a lot of fun. That was actually my first one and I learned a lot taking it apart. Since then my little 1556 loader project is done as well as another 1556, and I'm onto the 18HP tube frame project. I hope to update that post pretty soon.

The 1886 ran great today as I had to tow my 12' trailer out to the driveway to hitch up to the truck. Thank you all for your kind words.

Re: MTF's Machine of the Month - July 2012

Well done, Ed-nh! You da man! Excellent restoration job. Very impressive. Of course, now I'd be afraid to smudge grease or spill coffee on it, never mind dirt/snow.
