Well I got this tractor running.
Repairing the manifold was a challange. I kept chasing cracks. Its hard to keep heat even. This is that white cast iron. Its brittle.
I think it will hold unless a low flying tree limb attacks me.
Im trying to upload a short
Video of it running. No smoke and it runs good. I Think i got lucky.
You never know what your getting when you buy a dead tractor out of a field.
Two front tires and fix the left brake an its usable. Still need to buy a new cutting edge for the blade.
