Just about got her wrapped up, Restoration

Postby CraigKennedy » Sat Feb 27, 2016 2:23 pm

Guys, This month makes 3 years now I started restoration on My 1957 Cub Lo-boy. I've got advise from this forum a lot over the past 3 years, I would like to thank all of your for your help and suggestions. now pretty much I have to put a battery box on, and fine a complete 1-point hitch.
Every oil seal and gasket has been replaced, engine rebuilt, new bearing and seals in differentials, and a lot more :tractor:

Stain, I haven't bothered the with the mower, it was the first thing I removed when I started working on the tractor, it was in such bad condition
