Anyone in Tennessee?

Recommended Posts

If I remember right, Dover is about 40 miles from Clarksville and about 90 from Nashville, but I haven't been out there for quite awhile. My Grandad lived in Bumpus Mills about 100 yards from Lake Barkley. Reason I'm asking is I inherited his place and he had quite a few old dead tractors sitting out back and I was wondering if someone close wanted to inventory what's there. It's right at a 1400 mile drive for me. He would buy an old one and run it till it dropped then buy another one. His last machine was a 3 wheeled Xmark (?) and I gave that to one of his old buddies when we went out for the funeral. I do remember at least one Simplicity and it seems like he said that the transmission went out on it, seems like there are 3 or 4 total. That's probably why I'm spending so much time on this B-10, it would have been right up his alley. Alan

Kent: If you ever come back home, you will be a very close neighbor of mine and Roy's. I can hear the Smokies a calling now. Allan: I did a search on yahoo maps. Bumpus Mills is right near the Kentucky border north-west of Nashville so that's about 230 miles from me. Illinois and Ohio members may be interested and possibly closer.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
