So I am a new proud dad of a DAvid Bradley. Though it’s older then me hahah. New cleat rubber. And a flat head 5hp Briggs. So I will have to make a tank to go back to original spot and make a pipe with muffin. Hood is in great shape and trans too. Though it leaks out the axle seals. I found the old post for the seals part numbers. And has a middle buster with full shovel on it. And the triangle tool with adjustable pan height to make the little shovels set for make rows I am guessing. I have never used that tool and we just disc the ground and rake the clumps and and grass out by hand. Then hoe the rows up by hand. I’m 34 and that was when I was a kid so. But I don’t have the pulley for other belt attachments to go to. This is a pole frame type where the handle bars are clamped to the trans. And has only a clutch level no two speed and no reverse. Want to make a plow for the front. And get a sickle as well as mike a sulky to ride and a wagon to pull my girls around with it in fall a spring shows. :clap:

Thank you I diff will. I’m in central Mississippi and traveled 4 hrs to Memphis TN to get it. The guy that had it was a young guy about my age. He does micro greens and could not use it at his city house. Was using it last yr when they lived north of there and he had land big enough to work it in. I wish we had a site or a page on here just for the owners of them to post there serial numbers and state there in. Be really neat to watch them travel from owner to owner over time . Maybe that’s asking a little to much. Is there still a paint code for this for repainting them. I still have the original paint on all of it but. Is dead even the rims are still dull green. He got it from a guy and was barn keep. Had feed bags wrapped with hay twine. But did not tell me state or any other history then that.

Well I’ll try again later but can’t put photos on. Gives me a 500 internal server code error. I know we’re getting the site updated so maybe soon I’ll try again.

Took a good day to remember how but got it. Has bad axle seals so the ones I got from a old thread I ordered and will put them in tomorrow. But question, do I have to take the case apart to put them in or can I pull them and install new ones in from out side using a soft peace of wood to tap them in evenly flat. And I made a wagon to pull behind it. But the 3 hp Briggs is a little weak. Thinking of using 5 hp or bigger. Think that will throw the balance off when no using the wagon? Like making the nose heavy?
