My boss for whom I worked in high school had a neat little Avery. We mounted a cut-off saw on the back of it and used it for cutting firewood.

They indeed are neat little tractors. i would love to get this one all painted and such and find some mounted cultivators or something but that would be no easy task

They are a cool little tractor. Mine runs, but blows a lot of smoke and is on the weak side. I've got a line on another that has a good engine, but the front pedestal is missing. $400. Whats that scooter in the background...Yamaha Virago? Suzuki Intruder ? Kawasaki Vulcan? Honda Shadow ??

Tried getting it started again. Kept tinkering and never got anything. Tried for spark and noticed i dont have any. The farmall A was near by so i borrowed a spark plug wire, sprayed some ether in a spark plug hole and put the plug on, hooking that farmall wire to it. it fired so i made all new plug wires for it but now it seems like its not doing anything again. man this thing is confusing me

Will the spark jump a large gapped plug? Get an old plug and open it up to like 1/4" and ground it to the block and see if the spark will jump that far. Have you checked compression? If the compression is too low it's not going to start with the starter. Have you tried pull starting it?

Sorry for the late replys. I have gotten the Avery started now. It is running pretty good but it has some flames coming out of the exaust. not backfireing or naything. Probably has to do with the farmall B carb i have on it lol

Took me a while to find one. Never seemed to catch one when it was forsale and it seemed like ever lead we tried on the original one my grandpa had was a dead end. Neat little tractors i think.
