154 restoration

Postby twotone » Wed Feb 01, 2012 10:25 am

As promised I'm trying to document the restoration of my 154 Lo Boy. I don't see many (any?) of these restored and when I'm done this one will lead a pampered life. It's been good to me for 10+ years. I left it in it's present condition so I can push it out for 1 more pressure wash.

Thats the way to do a restoration great job keep the pics comming. All three of my int154's need a rescue restoration soon. The biggest thing is see is the wiring harnesses need to be replaced.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Wish my machine wasn't such a working class fella.
I'd feel like I had more time for paint!

I know how you feel my int154 with the plow is doing double duty in pushing snow and dirt all summer. Its getting a break this winter (no snow yet). Plus i have the jeep tractor runni9ng this winter too. I think i scared the snow away.
