HB 212 Tractor and Sickle Bar

Recommended Posts

bob1959
I just finished my sickle bar this weekend and thought you guys might want to see how it turned out with my HB 212 that I finished several months ago. The sickle bar was in really nice condition and totally complete for mounting. I may sell the sickle bar in the future, but I can't part with the tractor.

Great looking tractor and sickle. You did some awesome work. If I remember correctly, you were having some trouble with the rebuilt Vickers. How was the issue resolved?

Thanks guys, I have restored 5 antique autos and competed in the Antique Auto Club of America and all were Senior winners and 2 of them were Grand National winners. I love restoring old things to new. I also have done several clockface antique gas pumps. The hydro was rebuilt by my old AC dealer. We machined out and put in new bearing and seal on shaft. It replced the one that always leaked with the O ring. The paint is "New Yellow" formula. I mixed it in Dupont auto paint.

Bob, thank's for the clarification on the car. I definately knew it was a General Motors vehicle. A great combination, a Cadillac and Allis-Chalmers garden tractor.
