Jeff sent me some info and pics on his Gard'n Mast'r Jr's.These are some rare beasts thats for sure
Below is a few pics when he first bought the tractor.Remember to click on them to get
a bigger view.Jeff said he traveled to bedford P.A to get this tractor.
The next set of pictures is the actual restoration.I'll just copy what jeff said in the
email so you'll know how it all went.
this next group is pictures taken during the restoration process - It was all
very tedious. since no replacement parts were avaliable we took great care in removing only what was necessary for painting
and repair.The only major problem we had was the fact that we were missing the back wheels.So we adapted a set of trailer
wheels with the same lug pattern and size to stand in until a set could be found.Finding an original set of wheels was another
story that took several more years. (they are rare as hens teeth)
Here is pics showing it finished,I'm still sick over the guy not selling me the one I found last
year,you can tell he will never do anything with it from all of the other junk he had laying around.I'd say he will die of
old age and one of his kids will come along and haul it off for scrap,Anyways great job on your tractor jeff!!.
