Found this non running. Got it home and cleaned the points put in fresh gas and it's a great runner.

Going for a full restoration.

That belt wear on the axle does seem to be not uncommon...there is a youtube of a guy putting an axle out of a 1872 ( one inch spindles) on a 129...he does comment that the same thing happened to the point the axle was weakened and split..I just did the steering on a 129 and can't believe the difference...replaced the cam follower, tie rod ends and put a thrust bearing on, what a difference.....Also would you mind telling me what paint you are using?...I can't find it any where near me, and yours looks great... :congrats:

I'm using the Majic Cub cadet yellow from tractor supply.

It's been working really well for me.

I know it's not a close match to the original color, but it looks good enough to me.

So far I've painted a bunch of stuff with it and honestly it's good paint.

Any paint is only as good as the prep work.
