2012 rolling again

Recommended Posts

I handed down my 2012 to my son 3 years ago. After 30 years out on the farm, the engine finally gave out. He found a 10 hp for it and...

The old gal has still got it going on!

They're awesome tractors, that's for sure. My 728 is a little under the weather right now. I'm waiting on the proper tools now, i.e. dial bore guages, hone, etc. , to do the overhaul right. In the mean time I'm truely thankful for back up!

After I get the broadmoor up and "on line" again...

I'll take the oil pan off the 2012. The governor is non-existant. No response. Don't know if there's teeth off, or it's not even there. Then I'll overhaul the original 12hp! Here's a couple from prior posts 11/2008. This one spring of 1978 with helper Amy, my daughter, who by the way has three daughters of her own.

Then fast forward 29 years later... with a "new" deck

Actually, a like-new rebuilt deck from my son's father-in-law. you know, that's truely a testment to just how rugged, and reliable these briggs cast iron engines are. Do the math...30 years times 3.5 hrs(2 acres) times once a week times that was clay soil that grew thick grass, with clover mixed in!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
