nice. the fleet sure is growing! pics??
soon soon i'll get pics of the 8e tomorrow just the way i bought it... it has a briggs on it which i dont really like but i'll live
i have a 6hp tecumseh if you want to swap?
nahhhh its a very nice original tractor you'll see why i'll live with that it has when i take pics of it
The Briggs 8 HP is a good engine too..I had a Compact 8M with one and it was very powerful for it's size..Briggs are easier to find parts for too,than Tecumseh's..
here is a pic of my custom 8e... doesnt have spark at the moment... hopefully somebody will kno if it has points under the flywheel or not..... cuz i dont really wanna pull the flywheel off...

nnooooo thats staying with me.... if i find the other set of harrows i might trade or sell those.... but i gotta find all the attachments i have and put them in one place where i can find them
I would like some of your attachments :D
Wow,it's a twin to the Compact 8M I traded for a snowplow setup for my latest 4x4 truck ,earlier this year!..same color,engine,and grille/hood..mine was a 1972..still have the 1970 Compact 7M I got about the same time as the 8M...I'd keep the 7M if I had some attachments,I saw a whole tractor with one at a swap meet for 150 bucks last year but didn't have the cash to scoff it..it was nicer than mine was!..

Just because the Compacts lack the hi-low tranny ,it dont mean they cant pull like their bigger brothers..one I have now is only a 3 speed ,but first is nice and slow and it's dragged everything I've chained it too I wanted to move loke logs,and its shorter frame makes for more nimble manuverability out in the woods..it'll fit between trees the Suburbans cannot!..
