Some rusty old tractors we got for free
A lot of this is junk, but there is at least one diamond in the rough here. It was a sight unseen must-take-all kind of deal, so we went with Sterling's diesel Dodge truck and a borrowed trailer and pulled these relics out of a poison ivy filled muddy yard and brought them to tractor land. Oh yeah, and Dave got a bed liner for his Chevy for free too.
Flexing the Craftsman Crawler
Just a little romp. It was a nice day, and I had the Craftsman running anyway. Plus I had to test out the new slap shifter.
Hope you all enjoy it!

FINALLY uncovering and starting the 1968 Sears Super 12 tractor
Here it is: Tractor Land's pride and joy! YouTuber's have been waiting years for me to show them this tractor in action, and now I finally have a reason to use it; the Zagray Farm Fall Festival this coming weekend, and this tractor will be going with us to go in the show area. This tractor hadn't been started since spring of 2007, and that was only for a half hour.
Replacing a 6-speed transaxle with a Hydrostatic in a Craftsman tractor
I like everything about that Craftsman LT4000 twin, except it's 6-speed manual-shift Peerless transaxle, so I decided to swap it with a Hydro-Gear hydrostatic trans I had on a Craftsman LT1000. It went pretty well except for one little oversight. (I talk about that at the end.) This tractor was built by a company then called AYP, formerly called Roper. Now called Husqvarna. This swap will work on many brands. Poulan, Rally, Weed Eater and lots of other store brands.
The Craftsman GT5000's dead Kohler diagnosis
Here's our new Craftsman GT5000 Garden Tractor with a broken Kohler Pro 25hp V-Twin motor. Harry Homeowner said it just quit running; he told us "one of the pistons is stuck". Wasn't really sure what the hell that meant, so we checked it out as soon as we got it home. Watch and see what we discover...

Broken engine diagnosis on Craftsman DLS3500
In the last video we took a look at the new broken DLS3500, in this video we take a look at the engine to figure out why it's locked up. Very interesting what we found, very interesting indeed....
1982 Craftsman LTV/10 lawn tractor with no compression
I couldn't remember what was wrong with this Craftsman LTV/10 lawn tractor, so I figured I would see if I could get it to start, but quickly found out it's 10HP Briggs & Stratton engine had no compression. Just listen to it! I don't need a gauge to tell me it has no compression when it sounds like that! It was about then I remembered where it came from. We bought it for $35 at a swap meet a few years ago, drove it about 150 feet, and it abrubtly died. The motor is fixed now, it ended up being a burnt valve.
