Ok, some followup info on the 51 AC trike I was going to go see.

I called the guys, and sopposedly it is a CA model, with the trike front end.. but also has a wide front end that goes with it.. plus a few other odds n ends.. and an original owners manual. Soppesdly in great condition except or the paint.

Guy was asking 2900 will go down to 2500.

I have no idea of the value, so I need pricing help.

Also, from reading the other messages, I see that this model has a hand clutch. Is there also a foot clutch.. or is the hand clutch the only on there?

thanks for the info.

For that price it should be in excellent condition. It should have a foot and hand clutch. The hand clutch is next to your right leg, you pull it towards you to stop tractor motion....handy when you need to keep the pto/hydraulics going. It is spring loaded and won't stay back by itself. It actually is just a way to break the right axle (similar to having one wheel on ice and not being able to move). A lot of tractors had these clutches taken out or bolted solid because of slipping problems. I'd make sure this one will pull a load without slipping....fixing it can get expensive. Also 2nd and 3rd gear should be checked as they are known to wear and pop out of gear under heavy load or going downhill. Also check to see that the lift arms work. They use the same oil as the rearend, and if water gets in (common problem) the check balls in the pump can get stuck and the pump won't lift. Make sure all the necessary parts are there to mount up the wide front.

The water in the transmission got there (if there is any) from a rotten or missing shift lever boot. Always keep these in good condition or rain and snow can get into the transmission here. If it is bad check for water in the transmission/differential.

Today's Featured Article - Sunday Drives - by Cowboy. Summer was finally upon us here in Northern Maine. We have two types of industry up here, one being "Forestry" (Wood Products) and the other "Farming" (Potatoes). There is no shortage of farm tractors and equipment around here! I have been restoring old Farm Tractors for the past 6 years, and have found it easier and less expensive to hit all the auctions and purchase whole tractors for parts needed.
