Looks like how it did coming off the Sears sales floor. Looks too nice to be used as a tractor, it has become a show piece!

Did some digging around today and found that Northern Tool has a trailer hub set for 4on4 bolt pattern. That does open up more options in my opinion since I can find more wheel options in the 10" to...

I have no idea how much that is going to cost. It's on some farm in Wisconsin. No idea if it's close to Hudson or Eau Claire. My dad will have to grab it. But I'll be making the final call once I see...

87 octane 10% Ethanol is about $1.80-$2.14 per gallon. Ethanol free 91 is about $2.50 per gallon. In this stuff I'd run the ethanol free just to make it less of a hassle. I'll wait for the pictures...

That is all true. I'm not a huge fan of weld-a-hub options and I'm not going to use the #50 sprockets, going to just go straight to #520 ATV/Motorcycle chain and sprockets. Locating a 52 or 54 tooth...

My condolences to the amount of pain you needed to endure to do such a task. I see this daily at work and no, not my cup of tea.
