Ken, Jason, and Ron discusses how the brake pedal connects to the frame. They know their tractors and proper part designs

That's it!

Jason scrapes the dirt and oil off the pan, preparing it for sandblasting

Ken heats the dash and its sticker. He says it loosens the glue easier for removal

2016 UPPER MIDWEST A-C SCHOLARSHIP SPONSOR

Below is the start of the restoration of an Allis-Chalmers Bumble Bee 12 garden tractor, which Ken and Jason Holz; and Ron Erickson started February 20, 2016. This morning, Rhonda and I went over to the Jason Holz's Outdoor Power Products Museum and Display....WOW!!!!!  See pictures to the right side/down to see other collectibles Jason has!!!

The project started at 10:00 a.m. and by 10:44 a.m., the garden tractor was just a trans-axle sitting on the work table. Jason contacted me tonight, February 20 at 6:18 p.m....the front tires are painted......Engine and rear end stripped ready to be cleaned up.....All the parts that were sandblasted today.....see to the right side of this page....

This project, you can be part of.....by buying a sponsor ticket (seen on the side of this page).

Once when you donate YOUR TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DOLLARS, the funds will go for completing the restoration project. When the tractor is auctioned of, Saturday, July 23, 2016, your name will be displayed on the tractor as one of the HOPEFUL many other sponsors. Darrell Grams, Sr. has donated $100.00 to the Scholarship Fund project by purchasing TICKET #1, last year, at Saturday night's auction.

The more participating sponsors the Upper Midwest A-C Club has, the less funds will be needed to be taken out of the club's Scholarship Fund to pay for this restoration project.
