  1. Thank you all. It was a fun project. Baled 106 and never mis-fired. Took a bit to get all in working order and timed right but it paid off. Just wish the field was bigger
  2. Got the old girl baling and tying wonderfully. My grandpa has owned it for about 50 years. Used his john deere A to pull the baler
  3. Could very well be. They look beautiful red but equally pretty gray too. I know I'll find a good spot somewhereon the machine where I can see a for sure paint color
  4. So maybe it was a custom painted tractor? Maybe. Hmm. The whole under carriage has remnants of red but not the main part of the tractor. It's odd. I have a pic I've saved that shows 2 tone. It's messing with my head
  5. That's exactly what I've read. I've seen your comments in other color topics too but this is a weird one. There are no other colors under the 2 that are on my machine. I don't know.
  6. Man, I've been looking for a TD35 for some time. My great grandpa bought one in '38 brand new. My uncle has it now. Always wanted one for myself. Very nice machine. ­čĹŹ
  7. Mornin´╗┐, ´╗┐fellas. I've read everything I can find on colors for the T20. Gray, red, yellow, green... Now let me ask you this. Is it possible that one could have been 2 tone lile the wheel tractors of the period? I ask because because mine looks to be very original, but, it has remnants of gray paint in hidden areas on the engine, trans and around foot pedal area and red paint on the under carriage. Weirdest thing. I was originally to going to repaint it gray as everyth´╗┐ing I've read saus 1936 and before are all gray then I've read all t20s were gray then some were red. I don't know. I got to thinking well, maybe some farmer wanted to match the wheel tractor he had and had them

  9. Finally had time to turn my new venturi today after work
  10. I called the carb shop. The gentleman that owns it can make me a kit for that Schelber carb. Says they sell one bout every 10 years. It's a very unusual piece. I'll machine a venturi for it then it should be good as new. Thank you for your help
  11. Holy smokes. I hadn't come across that place yet. Thank you. I'll call them tomorrow and pick their brain
  12. Thanks man. I appreciate the pics and info. This Schelber does in fact have the necessary governer connection. I'm going to take it to a local engine rebuilder shop and have the carb hot takes tomorrow. Might as well start nice and fresh before I put it back on
  13. The felts look really good. No tears or missing pieces. I'll definately check to see How much it takes to top off the tray
  14. I have found a couple places online that sell the k5. This is an early 1932 model and I don't want to b iy a carb just yet if this in fact the one that's supposed to be on there. Everything was hooked up where it needed to be and certainly looked original sitting there. I think I'll machine a venturi using sizes from the original after I epoxy it back together. If it still doesn't run Right, maybe just purchase a k5 then
  15. I thought those 2 little funnels were for oiling valve train. Had no idea they were for fuel. I have the valve cover off now and waiting for a new gasket. Thank you for the help
