well guys as i have said before i have a REAL weak spot for HB's. here is my latest purchase. however i am going to have a fortune in this one. i paid a fairly high price (not so smart when you buy it as-is), thought i had 2 good front original tires at home to put on it but well they are both split now, hyd. lift belt shreaded when i tried to start it, some strange noises coming from the starter generator, battery is shot, and i changed oil in the bgb only to come back to all my oil i put in it on my garage floor a few hours later. on a good note its a pretty clean original, engine runs nicely, and the hydro works real nice. like i said i have a bit of a sickness with these HB's because after everything that i just described I WOULD DO IT ALL AGAIN!! here are a few pics as i worked on it this weekend.

all i do is hand sand them with 150 sand paper, use self etching primer, and paint them with almond rustoleum paint. i only painted the rear rims the fronts were an extra set i had painted a number of years ago. i changed them because i wanted to put the front wheel weights on and the rims that were on it didnt have the holes in them.

Nice machine! Rarely see an HB in our area as it seems the farmers all bought variables ("poor man's hydro") b/c they were using a similar drive on combines and were comfortable with that technology. I'm envious.
