Re: 1927 star doodlebug tractor

Hey Wes;
Great corresponding with you. Everyone Wes has a Star Duddlebug tractor that someone at one time did a pretty professional job building. I'm sure he'll post pictures when he gets the time or figures it out. Wes if you go to the left and hit Ebay there is someone selling a radiator and surround for around $99.00 or so. Not to bad right now. I'm sure others will chime in with some parts for you. Remember to also go to the left and join the club. It's a great investment.

Re: 1927 star doodlebug tractor

Hi Mike,
Thanks again for all your help.
Found out a little more about the little bug. It has 1923 Fordson hubs and front axle and I believe it is a star frame. Not sure on the steering box though.
I would love to share with everyone but cannot figure out how to upload on the forum.
Will be sending in my membership in a day or so. Just can't get away from the bug!! LOL
Thanks again,
Wes

Re: 1927 star doodlebug tractor

Hi Wes;
Wow! It looks great! Thanks for bringing back to life another old Star. It would be a good story about the purchase and restoration for our club magazine. Hint Hint, you can write it up and either email it or mail it to our club Editor Carol and she'll take care of the editing etc. Send some pictures along too.
