Pulled the B off the trailer, Got all the parts in the barn, Its kinda overwhelming looking at the mess. Filled the cylinders with PB Blaster as good as possible, opened the petcocks and filled as good as I could, also soaked as many nuts bolts and screws as I could find. The carb is soaking in some degreaser in the sink. It is actually green under all that grease and dirt. I was amazed to see there was paint and nice shiny brass screws under all that garbage. Wheres a good place to get a carb rebuild kit. I did get some good possible good new on a trip plow that sits back in there as well. Have not seen it yet so no idea if it "REALLY" is good new yet or not.


Pulled her out of the woods today, didnt think it was gonna happen. the brakes were froze up. took care of that situation, then couldnt get it out of the hole, started to get worried and all of a sudden she jumped right on out of there. Felt like a million bucks steering the ol girl to the front yard till I got back off and started adding up expenses, Going back with the trailer and truck today and hopefully bringing her home.













Well, I did it! Got the ol B out in the woods for 300, I think I did pretty darn good, those fenders are in great shape, I'd say they ought to be worth what I paid for the whole tractor. Gonna be an interesting project to say the least. It will be my first major project. The engines froze up so thats the first project at hand well after getting it out of those woods. Its been there since the 70's but the tank and hood and all the parts you see missing were put in a enclosed trailer so shes all there. Still dont have it home yet but Ive been dreaming all night and day of hearing that double lunger run. Anybody have any advice on where to start with this thing or the easiest way to get that engine unstuck?
