LO-boy sold

Sat Jun 12, 2004 9:17 pm

:wink: Well fellas a guy came to look at the 63 Lo-boy and fell in love with it .
We took it out in the field to let him mow with it to check it out and oil started pouring out of the front main seal.
so I told him I would not sell it to him with it leaking like that :roll: , And I told him that if it rained so I could get some shop time that I would change the seal. It rained the next day so I tore it down and replaced the seal, it took me 3-hours and at least 1-hour of it was pulling the pulley and I did use the bearing seperater and puller it takes a lot of force. :o
The guy came back drove it and was verry happy to purchase it.
I sold it for $2500. and the man insisted on giving me an extra $100 for doing the seal. 8)
It was hard to see the little short yellar fellar leaving on the rollback . :cry:

Hi Ralph,

I enjoyed our visit yesterday. Your tractors all looked great and I envy you on that shop of yours. Lots of room to work. Thanks for the great set of cultivators. Another project to get ready for Cubarama!

See Ya,
