I think I know who you're talking about, Dave. Real smart. Handsome guy. Hangs out with some real boneheads, though.My lapse in doing anything reminded me of another chronic procrastinator who is well known for starting projects, and then..., but I'm not going to name names.:tango_face_smile:
Well the cat's out of the bag now.:tango_face_smile: I've never driven it before today. When I bought it 6 years ago I rolled it off of the trailer, pushed it into the garage, and it has just sat there until now. I'd really like to know how many more years it sat in the collapsed shed before the p/o finally pulled it out for the original owner's wife, who was having what was left of the shed demolished. It had to be for some years from the amount of rust, and pitting on it.And here I thought all your machines were beautifully restored. :tango_face_grin:
+1Good thing it's not worse or the collapsed shed didn't damage it. It looks like the patina is actually kind of nice, fix up the seat and use as-is.

The rust *does* give it the look of an old honest hard working tractor, and it *would* mean less work for me. I just don't know how long I'd be able to keep my trigger finger off of the rattle can trigger.+1
Some of my machines get the cleanup treatment, but more of them get the mechanicals sorted out, and run as is. That one looks to me like a runner.
