Practicing what I preach.

I've recommended in that past that when restoring a tractor, take lots and lots of pictures for reference. Deep down under the seat of my Wonder Boy, there's quite a few unusual pieces.




I have fasteners bagged and labeled and somewhat neatly arranged in my basement. I will replace fasteners as needed. Some will be cleaned and reused. Unpainted parts will be sent to be zinc plated.






Wish me luck everyone!!

Good luck! I always tell myself I should take pictures before disassembly, and never do; the other night I actually finally DID take pics; last night I realized the part I needed to see in the pics was hidden just out of view. I still can't win. hahaha

Nice start. There comes a time, once you've taken apart enough, you won't need the pics anymore. :D I've done so many round hoods you can give me a pile of parts and a coffee can of fasteners and I can make a tractor out of it without instructions. ;);)

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
