First B10 Restoration

Recommended Posts

RandyBuxton

Just got my new (?) B10 home today and tucked away in the garage. With the blade and tiller for $600. Maybe a little pricey but too late now. ;) Starter works, engine purrs beautifully. A fair amount of rust that the sandblaster will make short work of. After helping my son restore his B110 I thought I'd give it a shot by myself.

....and a new whatever-you-call-the-thing on the bottom of the plow (replaceable),, fellow says that cost $80 bucks right there. And a good as new heavy duty voltage regulator.

I'm thinking I got a good buy. We'll see when I get into dismantling it.

Oh the fun!

I value opinions good, bad, or otherwise! And I'll be taking plenty of pictures.

Now, for starters,,,, I have a question about sandblasting and painting the engine. I presume it can be sandblasted. What must I take apart in order to do so? And any references or pictorials from members that have done this before would be great. And about the painting,,, anything special need be done beyond priming and painting? Special paint?

Thanks all!

very nice, not a bad price a running driving tractor with all the extras.

i paid 400 for a big ten that came with a snowblower, deck and off color paint job. but it was a good little runner when i finished rebuilding the carb and some wiring.

id="quote">So long as you're content with what you paid, don't worry if anyone else here thinks you got a good deal. I don't sandblast the motors when I rebuild them, but instead have them cleaned at the machine shop. I don't see any reason why you can't sandblast it so long as you're careful not to get/leave any grit in the cylinder, etc, etc, etc. I also would not use sand on the aluminum head, oil pan, etc. Walnuts or something like that would likely be better. As for paint, use the absolute best you can get. You can spend weeks getting every single dent, etc, worked out of the metal and everything perfectly straight. But if you then just use Rustoleum paint or something, it's only going to look ok. A higher grade paint will make it look not just ok, but truly beautiful.

Welcome to the foot dragger club. I've made some deals that seemed a little pricy at first and then sold off parts or items to get it within my budget. I'd say you did good and have an nice collection of implements.
