So in a round about way I am inheriting this tractor as my next project.
My FIL purchased this tractor from its original owner. Up until then it was always barn kept and in pretty good shape.
Dad bought it to work with....and he didn't have a barn to store it in.....and then he bought an 8N which he like better.....and the tractor was given to my brother to mow the fields on his 72 acres. My brother is not mechanically skilled when it comes to equipment.......
It is agreed that my brother needs a better tractor to "work" with and that I would be better at fixin up this old gal.
I've got to get her back to my place and before I can do that I have to finish a couple "projects" that I have going to make some room for it.
My brother has "fiddled" with the distributor and I know it has been run hot (radiator leak) so my first task will be an assement of what I have and what I'll need to do. Thinking at least a top end / head gasket as well as a radiator rebuild, a carb overhaul, clean out the gas tank, etc....
Any information, manuals, places for parts, etc will all be greatly appreciated.
I am really looking forward to getting this tractor back to good working order and then go from there.
