Let's get this new section moving! Get the pictures up!
Here's some of my '86 GT18 I've redone the past few months..... bought for $500(guy wanted $1,000 when negotiations began) and now have about $800into it as it sits with new paint, some new sneakers on the front/back, a used Original Cab enclosure(from a Toro) refit/installed and a fabricated weight tray/box. Still hope to install some forward facing lights on cab enclosure. It's been a fun project to work on. Can't wait for some snow here in Maine so I can play!
Folks say I'm lazy, drunk and stupid. Well, I got news for them......they're only 2/3 right.
They say you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but I've always had my best success with a dead squirrel
Want to see what happens when you join parts from about 6 GT's, farm tractors, walkbehinds, ship parts, push mowers, trailers, scrap air compressors, CNC lathes, junk refrigerators, tread mills and more? If so, check out me and Mike's most excellent Gravely Custom Build and Adventure Thread
Here's a video of my S-16 that I picked up in mid-September. Since I've had it I've given the hood and frame new paint, tore off the seat (piece of junk -- new one is coming), put tubes in the rear tires, and tuned it up. I just got it started after a brutal ordeal with the points and carb but I think it sounds pretty good now.
the more i think about it this may be the same tractor in all the pics,its been a while and i have been thru a lot of tractors lol.i will have to look thru more pictures.so i can try to tell the differences between the two that i had.
