I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Bolt today when I met him and his helper to pick up this nice little package. What a great guy and I really enjoyed the conversation and the face to face meeting. I was treated more than fairly with this deal too, monetarily and a mid-point meeting place. I got a nice load of stuff for a very very fair price. Thank you SB. :thanku:
Here's the haul:
A good seat pan. There's a good hood under there too:
A frame full of parts. More on that in a minute.
A nice, old rotary plow. It seems to be a good one. Ignore the flange laying on top of the case. It's just laying there.
A cracked frame with several good parts including a good steering sector, wheel and center cap, throttle and choke cables, an anmeter, battery tray and tank bolts, a good gas tank, directional lever, mower lift mechanism, all of the shifter linkages and cover plate, and several more good parts.
A disassembled transmission. It was opened just to remove the PTO clutch. All of the gears appear to be good. Another front axle is visible there too.
A set of good ag tires on good wheels:
A good 50" mowing deck. So far as I can tell, all it needs is a belt and the belt covers.
More on the front axle: have any of you seen this style tie rods before? I looked at all of the 800 Series IPL's and didn't see this style of any of them. They are even different from the 8000 Series with rack and pinion. Oh well, they're good with very little slack. I can't say the same for the ones on my 816.
Another great Gravely day. :thThumbsU
