Hey guys
So after some trading around, I just picked up this beauitful HT18. Traded the 1250 project and cash off and got this beauty. Runs excellent, but will need a stator, regulator, and rebuild the driveshaft. After that, I will go through front to back, take off the heads and clean thorughly. Probably do transmission fluid before the winter. Plans for this tractor will be to use plowing this winter, and retire the ol 1886. Power steering will soon to come on this machine as well.

Sounds like fun!
Very nice tractor You have quite the collection going.
Got the HT18 stripped down, doing charging system now. I am converting to 15 amp system from original 30 amp, and I will be mounting a K532, or K582 flywheel on for the 15 amp stator.
