a) I love stories like this!
b) Great job!
I drove a 4630 for two summers, 1974, and 1975, moldboard plowing 900 acres each year,,,
Every time I opened the cab door, the tractor wanted to deafen me,,,
I can not imagine the 4630 without a cab,,
I burned eleven gallons of fuel per hour,,, the 65 gallon tank did not last long!!
Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!
Looks Great Grandpa would approve

I did some of it but most of the big stuff and the paint was done by a friend of mine named Carl Schrote. The tractor had sat in a fence row for 10 years before we bought it back so it needed almost a complete rebuild.
my one uncle had a 730 that needed a new paint job, and some TLC to other things. my uncle finally said ok to this one fella who had been bugging him for yrs to buy it. he finally said ok to the deal-was if he could ride it, in our local fire departments parade they have at their little fund raising week every there.
he got to ride on it that yr in August-i rode behind him on my model 50, and the boy behind me on our 2520 mcut. it was quite nice of 3 generations in line. nobody remembered to take a pic-so sorry for that-cause in April of next spring he passed away then.
