Unbelieveable! Ya done good kid!

Dusted me is very much an understatement! I have the carb down to the castings on the kitchen table, so ol' Rufus is not too thrilled to have his sibling in one piece when his heart is on 'the table'.

Can you come visit?? RI is nice this time of year. . I need some tips.

Looks great Ralph. I see that you have the new safety gas cap on it.
I think I see the regular cub brackets on the draw bar or is it the angle of the picture?

Ralph.....That tractor is a thing of pure beauty. You should be proud. I get impatient waiting for the microwave so I'm not sure "Buckwheat" will ever reach that level of restoration......unless ofcourse, I find a master like yourself with the time and willingness to do it for me!!!!

Just kidding...I hope to do mine next winter. Anyway, GREAT JOB!

What a beautiful job, Ralph! :D :D Does the Guinness Book have a record time for tractor restoration?

Great looking pair of cubs Ralph. I was thinking if you slipped a little yellow and white Lo-Boy in the middle, you could have yourself a Cub sandwich. :roll: :lol:

Rowlf,
You better not leave it out over night. You may wake up in the AM and find that it has been replaced with another Y&W not nearly as purdy as that one. Awesome restoration. I'd like to do mine some day, but I doubt that it would as good as yours.
Larry
