Welcome to the forum. I have a 104 myself. I use it for roto-tilling and it's unbelievable how good it does, and how dependable it is. And the folks on this site are very helpful.

Chris:

A Doodle Bug is a tractor that has been made from an old car/truck parts/chassis. Many folks in the 20's/30's etc., could not afford a real tractor but were able to acquire a junker that they could then convert. I have my father-in-laws doodle bug which was home built using parts from an old Studebacker, a Ford and a couple other vehicles that I haven't been able to identify. It is powered by a 6hp Briggs and Stratton engine. Amazing tractor.
