  1. One link at a time, work through it and see what can be done, initially they look pretty good.
  2. Priming of most of the parts is now complete. The engine block, the tracks, dash and the top rad tank are about all that is left. They all need some work before they are done. Assembly will start before too much longer. The transmission needs a couple of bearings, so that will slow that part down until budget matches the cost. It will come together quickly when all the parts are together.
  3. 1935 LAA in the original colours...I suspect the cart wheels may not have been red.
  4. Right...I wrote it without thinking.
  5. The decision to change to red occurred in May of 1939. Your engine would be grey with a red flywheel and belt pulley. The grey colour would be the same dark grey of the McCormick tractors. The red is the same familiar IHC 2150 red.
  6. What is the serial number? The colour changed during their production.
  7. One item we discovered was missing was the radiator shutters. There are some good people in this hobby. In less than a day after I put out the word, a set of shutters was found and on its way. Complete with all the control rods and even a second set of control rods to ensure we had the best set possible.
  8. Yes, Wheeler Dealer has been displayed. Not sure if it is right now though. The work was a hobby career.
  9. It is the Reynolds-Alberta Museum. I used to work there, now just volunteer. When I restore now, I go to this same level of detail.
  10. As we learn, we discovered that this T-6 had shutters. A few inquiries and we have found what we need.
  11. Another week and some more parts in primer.
  12. The track frames are repaired and ready for primer. The crack shown in the first posts of this thread is now gone. Properly welded, ground smooth and forever (hopefully) solid.
  13. The first reaction when seeing a crack like this is...oh no! Another fix that needs to really be done carefully. However, when flipped over, it had no crack. Closer examination reveals there a rounded edge on much of the crack line. There is nothing in the area that can wear on it when open place...and you cannot wear on a spot that is below a ridge unless you get really lucky. The crack is not a crack but a casting surface flaw and has been there since the day it was installed.
  14. Racks of parts are primed. Next comes assembly to a point that red can coat visible surfaces without stress...i.e. likely will get the transmission case together with the frame rails and get it painted one coat.
