Sandy Lake sells the stitched ones in either the high-back (B-100/200 serires) or low-back (B-1, Big Ten, B-10) models. The low-backed ones were stitched originally, while the high-backed ones were heat pleated. I put the stitched one on my HB-216, even if it isn't correct for a B-210/212 because I like it better. But, it is also MUCH more expensive.... [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/images/do_it/slider809_small.jpg[/img] Paul, thanks for that good picture of Wells seat. I hadn't gotten a good look at it. Looks like the cushion may be a bit thicker than the ones Mary makes... Some of you might be interested in how I made my HB-216 seat adjustable, also: http://www.simpletractors.com/do_it/adjustable_seat.htm

Paul, Here's the story of Maynard's HB-116... http://www.simpletractors.com/do_it/variable_to_hydro2.htm And my HB-216 that was being done at the same time... http://www.simpletractors.com/do_it/variable_to_hydro.htm Then, there's a whole different story about how that HB-116 made it from Illinois to upstate Vermont....:)

Cool. The article on Maynard's HB116 was what really got me into the Simple-Tractor hobby. I didn't realize it was UCD's machine in that article until today as I never went back to that article to today. I've found that I only have time for bolt together projects right now, but I am collecting as we all are. Still very little time. Big things on the horizon right now.

Paul The HB-116 is what is called a nevawas, It never was a B-112. ( or anything else for that matter ) I guess you would call it a restro rod. It has a Briggs 16hp I/C engine, SundStrand 15 hydro tranny, Sundstrand hydro lift, 7100 series cone clutch & center pto. It even has A Sunrunner horn. The kids like the horn in parades.

Perfect example for all what years and years of this addiction becomes. One may loose all reason and ability to tell right from wrong for the sake of originality, or what ever else possesses the warped tractor focused mind. Even through the detoxication induced lapse of ones membership, this addiction can still persist. Hopefully no one ever gets to the point that this guy became. :D I've seen a few seats Mary has done and all were exceptional.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
