Panzer 1957 T102 Restoration in progress. Complete engine rebuild. Engine is not the correct year. It is a 1970 model 2434 10 hp. Rear rims and tires are on it temporary till I get the original ones repaired. About $300.00 in materials so far. $150 of which was in the motor. Still need to buy the rear tires( about $250) I will post more when its complete.
Spring startup of the Panzer
Figured I'd finish up the startups for this year. Here is my 1963 Panzer
T70ES Tractor I restored in 2007. It has come a long way as you can see in
the vid, but isn't quite done completely. I still have the carb linkages to
finalize, now that I found the original parts, it'll go together. Was hard
starting though, not common for a Briggs.
Restoring a Ferguson TO-30 Tractor in 8 minutes or less
Restoring a 1952 Ferguson TO-30 Tractor. This tractor is family owned since
new from when my grandfather had a Ferguson dealership in McMinnville
Oregon. Rebuild took 2 years and thousands of dollars, not a project for
the faint of heart. Engine is a Continental Z-129. The block had cracked
and had already been welded when I got it. I had the pistons and sleeves
replaced and the crankshaft ground. All new electical and lots of time
cleaning and painting. She is a beauty!
Panzer Plowing 2009
This is a Pennsylvania Panzer T758es (circa 1965) that has a 7hp Briggs
engine on it, which makes it technically a T75. I use it as the 'garden'
tractor in my collection - for both plowing and discing. I also have a
front blade for it. It's not pretty, but gets the job done!

Labour Day 2013 for Restoring the Deutz Third Reich Tractor Doku
Engine and transmission is still in good condition and don´t need to be
fixed. I´m just cleaning the housing and grinding the rust. In the final,
the tractor won´t get painted. Old looking with thin rust, but shielded by
The tractor was used for forest-work since from 1936 to the 1970s. During
the time it was always fixed and some parts were changed, such as bigger
rear wheels, better steering gear, more powerful generator and automatic
coupling for trailer.
This all is noted and stamped in the original documents.
18 HP Onan "No Start" and fix? on 1977 Craftsman GT18 Tractor
I was told this machine wouldn't run on anything but full choke. This
video covers my work on the engine to figure out the problem.
My grandfather's 1977 Craftsman GT18 Garden Tractor that is now mine. A
rugged beast with an Onan 18 HP opposed twin engine connected to a
hydrostatic drive. I believe the tractor was made for sears by Roper.

Day Gas Engine & Tractor Assc. Show in Apache Junction, AZ on 3-10-12.
Barn find 1963 Sears Suburban 725 Tractor
What a barn find. I HAD to take this if i was to get another garden tractor
I was buying. It was not running at the time of pick-up. The people just
wanted it out of their way. All I did was clean and set the points and
clean the carb, then soak all the moving parts with a good penetrating oil.
A plow (not pictured) was with the tractor when I picked it up, the push
blade was a gift from a neighbor who had no idea what it might fit. I have
the starter generator for it, it still has to be mounted.
1963 Panzer Tractor T70B
My 1963 Panzer tractor model T70B restoration. Used a 8 hp Kohler engine.
Used Pontiac Blue engine spray paint. Close to original color, not exact
but close. Need to install a new PTO bracket on the left side yet and I
have the mower deck to restore also. Runs well. A lot smaller then my big
red Panzers, but still a neat piece of history. Check out my other video of
this tractor as it looked before the restore.
