Default Hello from Central MN

Hello I'm from MN originally then moved back here from WA in 2004.I like pretty much all old stuff from garden tractors,mowers,snowblowers,and old motors. I do more collecting than working on engines,which I don't rebuild partly because my hands don't work so well anymore,although I have like 45 yrs ago. I took an old wards one lunger with a hand crank to school and with help of shop teacher got it running,and put it on a go cart. I may try again on something I'm not worried about ruining or that I know I'm going to need. So then I will have rebuilt if I can afford it,like I did my JD 318,and JD 214. I repower some like old snapper riders with the handlebar style steering,and old Jari sickle bar mowers. If someone says something about my collecting I just reply they're my working toys.I use the stuff I get running.

If I was wealthy I'd probably own a scrap yard and go broke rescuing old iron,like I did one Jari from either late 40's or early 50's. and a JD 111.

I've used this site a few times for just info,so thought I'd say hello and thank you to all.
