    Hi folks,

    I'm in Minnesota, and am starting to get some spare time to tinker on projects again. One project idea that has been on my list for a long time is to get a M series LB to restore.

    I came up with some ideas try to re-power these jems. I also recently obtained a NOS motor (never ran) to use as a template for rebuilds. I'm interested in finding a good candidate for starting this effort.

    Lots of information here, I will be spending a notable amount of time researching / lurking.

    Blaine MN,
    I used to live in Anoka right on 47 north.

    Good luck on search.
    Fun site to be on.

    Thanks Mow-Daddy.

    A couple other project include some landscaping and site prep for buildings, improve a drainfield, which will require a backhoe, a FEL to prepare a pad for a garage, already have the dirt, add more riprap, and I might tackle stump grinding or removal at a second location.

    Looking around, the option of possibly renting or leasing a tractor (4 WD) sounds like the route to go for equipment (series of projects could take 3-4 weeks, when inspections are included during the work process).
    I have over 500 hrs in a skidsteer, and maybe 5 in a small excavator, so using this type of equipment is not totally new.

    Been racking my mind to figure out what a M series LB is. I keep picturing a john deere L haha.

    Maybe someone can enlighten me.
