It's been almost 3 months since I started working on this deal, but I finally got the 70 home late last night. I purchased it from the son of the man who bought it brand new in 1954. Would that make me the 2nd owner? Anyway, here's the story: They used it farming until they purchased newer bigger tractors. After it was no longer being used for farming, the owner's kids decided to have it painted for a birthday present for their dad. Mistake. He parked it and never used it again because he "liked it the way it was." It's been siting in a field for several years and the cattle have eaten the ignition system wiring off of it. It is a gas tractor with a gas carb, but the previous owners installed a propane regulator and tank and have been running it on that fuel. The engine seemed to spin easily with a little pull, so the plan is to get some juice to it and check the oil pressure before we wire it up and try to get it to fire. In addition to the wiring, I have 2 immediate issues to address: 1. The clutch seems to be stuck, so I'll have to try to free that up. Any and all thoughts appreciated. 2. The brakes are apart and the shoes are missing. Are those interchangeable? Or are they specific to the 70. It looks like everything else is there. Again, any advice appreciated. I tried to post some pics. Sorry they're bad. Wrecker lights were messing with me.
