I know what you mean, the wife thinks I am crazy. But these little tractors help me do things I would not be able to do anymore, she dosen't seem to figure that out since she isn't the one tilling, hauling, ect.
By next spring I am hoping that I will have the hydro lift stuff on the B-110 and the 3 point on the GT18H. Also toying with the idea of getting the controls and parts from a JD H3 and putting that stuff on my Allis 916H.
These things have so much they can do, it is very addicting.
Your tractor is a 1961 model 551. The engine is a Lauson H55- 2113. H55 engines or parts are hard to find but many parts from a Tecumseh H60 will interchange with that engine. That's a good find with all the goodies on it like the belt guard, hood plug, original cables, foot rests and the H55. Many times all or most of those parts are missing so there is a high demand for the originals.
BattleRomeo is pretty darn good with these little tractors and stuff, I lean on him a lot to figure stuff out.
Now, if I can just get him to take the big dive into the GT world, maybe he will start getting some stuff I can barrow, instead of saying I am crazy for having multipal tractors then barrowing them:dunno:
