The Making of a Gravely Westchester https://www.svaec.com/apps/photos/ The Making of a Gravely Westchester 1962 LI Starting Point This was the starting point for this project which was picked up in Tolland, CT. https://www.svaec.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=131475124 131475124 Westchester Engine Build The Westchester Engine was purchased from Georgia and arrived in a wooded box via UPS from Galin a Gravely Tractor Club of America member. The trick with the Westchester is "you need the lower and not just the overhead valves as it has a different cam and the valves are on one side" Sometimes we learn the hard way https://www.svaec.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=131475125 131475125 It's Coming Together More or less fitting everything up like the hood, handle bars, gas tank, fan shroud (took two tries to make) linkage, and gear reduction wheels before paint begins. https://www.svaec.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=131475126 131475126 Time to see if this Monster will run!
