Happy Holidays to all!!!

Well I have decided that I am sick of looking at the old 446 sitting behind the garage. It was bought new by a local school and was well maintained for many years. My father bought it about ten years ago and after he passed away 5 years ago I ended up with it. It ran great before I parked it two years ago.

I am not entirely sure what year it is. It says Ingersoll on the side of the hood, but Hy-Drive 446, not 4016. So early 80s perhaps? I'll get the serial number and figure it out.

Well, its coming in the garage today getting cleaned up, tuned up, resprayed/powder coated. I will refrain from saying a full restore, but that is the plan!! Will give me something to tinker with over the winter. Like I need something else!

I will keep you posted on the project as it progresses and may need a question or two answered. (I remember attempting to change a starter on an old 76 Case 446 we had, what a nightmare!!!)

I will try to post a few pics later today when she is in the warm dry garage.

Happy New Year!
Sean
