Re: 1946 B.F. Avery Model A Tractor Restoration

So the weather was good enough to roll her out this afternoon and log some break in/debugging time. We dialed in low idle and got to run her through all the gears for the first time. No real surprises. A little vibration in 3rd...which makes the right brake lever contact the right fender. We'll probably stay out of 3rd

If you haven't figured it out yet, my little girl's name is Avery...which made this the logical first project. Of course she rode around the block with me today and a couple of minutes in asked, "Hey Dad, do you think anyone else in the neighborhood has a tractor?" "Probably not," I said.

Re: 1946 B.F. Avery Model A Tractor Restoration

That's great...what a coincidence the her name and the tractor are both Avery....

More of a practical consideration...couldn't fit a Kubota in the basement.
