My two boys(Jon and Jason)and I put this tractor together over Christmas vacation completely from spare parts. We took stuff from at least a dozen or more tractors in our salvage yard and from the spare parts shelves along with a thirty dollar swap meet 16 hp engine. We did spend a little money on two new belts and a carb gasket but that's it. It will get it's shakedown run this winter plowing snow and then go to work mowing at a cemetery that we take care of next summer. We just can't take anything from the collection to work like that!!

Boy, sure looks nice. DOES NOT look like a conglomeration of parts at all. Your "collection" of spare parts looks as nice or better than my B-208 which was put together by the factory!

Good job. Nice to see the younger generation involved.:)

Looks good. Have you figured out a "model" name for it? Would be an interesting parts list.
