Well I woke up this morning and decided that I need to move on to different projects. Some of you have seen my posts about my 1886 husky that I have got awhile back. It had been sitting for a long time. After looking at all of your pictures online I wanted to restore it.

This last week I got it into the shop and started pulling her apart. I spent two days on and off working her over and now she runs. Drove her out of the shop and ran the hydraulics.

Here is the data on it.

I have no implements for it.
Has around 150psi in each cylinder.
I have it hooked up to an auxiliary tank right now.(old tank needs to be cleaned)
Everything seems to function
I cleaned the carb out but did not replace the needle and seat. It seems to like it at about half choke.
tires are in really good shape.

I thought I would offer it up here before I go to craigslist. would really like to see it restored. I would like to get $500.00 for it, but I am open to offers.

Cool rig you got there. I would take it, but I already have two tube frames and a Yardman mower. Don't really see where I could put it to good use.

I guess I was too late.

JustinR and his other brother will give it a good home.

That's easy for you to say you took it!

Treat it well, as I am sure you will.
