1957 Lo-Boy followed me home

Postby radioguy41 » Thu May 18, 2023 3:36 pm

Well, I found a horse to throw my Henderson saddle (uh, loader) on. :wink:

1957 Lo-Boy w/Fast Hitch. It's going to sit for a while until a few other Spring projects get done but it runs, drives, and stops. Has the original 6 volt system, standard seat, keyed (?) ignition, and pancake lights front and rear. I have a couple of early requests so I'll be posting them in the Vine.

Congratulations on your LoBoy. I noticed that you have the under/over tie rods, started at SN 4802. Stan

Yeah, space is tight, I may end up selling my FCub to make room once the front end loader is mounted and working on the Lo-Boy.

Getting some things done; installed an alternator, replaced the coil, swapped the wires on the ammeter, all in preparation of going to 12 volts. Also pulled the low slung exhaust and cleaned up the manifold threads in preparation of converting to vertical exhaust.

If your exhaust pipe is in good condition you could probably sell it. They are a bit hard to find.
