8 month hunt for this B-10

Recommended Posts

fishnwiz

As some of you may already know, I hunted this B 10 for about 8 months (see "whats it worth" section for full story) and have finally bagged the beast. I found this tractor in Broadhead Wi (about 100 miles from my home) early last year and made several failed attempts to purchase this (via phone)NON running tractor. PO had owned this tractor for 8 years after buying it from orig owner. Neat thing about it was the original paperwork and battry tags as well as pics of the original owner.The owner hit me up(Blackmailed me) for an extra 20 dollars on the orig paperwork and was going to seperate it if I did not pay the 20...After all of that time, I did not want to miss out on the matching paperwork... I really like getting history with the machine. The serial number on the tractor matches the paperwork as well as the original purchase of the dozer blade which is checked on the manual! Anyone know this guy or this shop??!

The blade was hooked up and used 1 time and it shows...almost NO wear at all on blade!.

Tractor was pretty nice and needed new belts, throttle and choke cable, new head gasket after stuck exhaust valve, carb rebuild kit. fresh oil ect... Tractor fired up after two turns of the motor and ran EXCELLENT!Overall a real true survivor tractor. This was a real fun hunt and repair for me and it feels real good to have this tractor up and running again after sitting for 15 plus years in total. The paperwork and pics/ history make it all that much more special for me.

Blade and tractor are in original paint!

Very cool Mark! You don't find many like that...certainly worth the effort. I'm really impressed :o

Seems to me there was talk of those ropes with wooden handles being original pull starts for theses tractors also...ring a bell with anyone?

Wow!! That tractor was sold new within 15 miles of my house! Ha and Dekalb is about 25 miles north east! I had a B212 from Bakers Farm Store I picked up from a guy locally. When Bakers closed they have at least 100 A/C garden tractors sitting outside and they sold at auction...most of them were nothing more than parts machines (if that) but there were some real nice ones in the pile too! Pretty cool to see such local stuff on here

That's kinda what I thought...we probably talked about that very thing. Neat to have! These old Briggs start easy with a rope, but without a handle, I seem to always get a burn.

I have a minor problem driving me crazy on this machine. Engine started fine 1st time I tried after I cleaned up head area of all carbon and replacewd the head gasket...since then, does not like to start cold...will not fire at all. If I add starter fluid engine will start fine and run excellent. After motor starts and runs for a few min, engine will start just fine without choke or fluid. I checked to be sure choke was full closed at cold start up.

Carb was rebuilt by me and like I said runs excellent after I get her running but will not start or fire when cold. Ideas or suggestions?

Will it start cold if you hold the throttle closed (idle).

I don't remember the reason, there have been a few comments about engines that start like that.

I have a couple, a 10 a 12 and a 15 hp, that have done it, but just deal with it, I don't know the cause.

I just hold the throttle tight closed on the first start up.

I would turn that nelson muffler down before rain water gets into the engine...

This may be a long shot but I've seen a few of these carbs that lost the little "spring-loaded rubber flap" thats on some of the choke plates.

So even with the choke set there's too much air passing thru it. (I think it's some type of relief reed-valve??) You gotta use a small dental mirror or take the access disc off the end of the carb to see it...
