  5. Yes Doc, In the 90's they rebuilt the engine and gave her a paint job at that time. My thoughts are that I will repaint all the white panels next summer and try to leave it otherwise as it was in the field. Its last cut was in 2012 ,cut 650 acres, and its ready to go if needed. Tony

    Thank you Gentlemen , dont know yet how it will turn out . Even after this she is going , Will need wheel replacement & tires these are cracking from age and one wheel has cracks that have been welded before , so I'll replace with good used ones. Salvage yard here we come again Tony
  12. This 1966 806 was basically given to me if I preserve it . I told the owner he could not scrap that cutter and sell the 806 single front that his Dad bought new in Madera Ca for bean cutting. It would be a sin and he would go to H&ll . Next I saw him he said if you like it that much it's yours take it do want you want but when you show it mention our farm name and the 17000 acres it's done in life time. Last used was in 2012 it cut 650 acres . So few pictures of applying lip stick just to get us to dance this April then next year I'll get more intense. Reason for 15.5's in back is that he was cutting 30" rows and wanted tires off the pods. I am thinking I may set her up for 38" like I had back in day and go with new set of 18.4x38 pic on Trailer is when I brought her home the sickle bar you see are for cutting plant runners the knives I powder coated silver are on work cart will mount bet for the show . I powder coated grill screen , chrome front emblem , new Farmall emblems , fluids all changed , new steering wheel & cap , new air cleaner gauge and it works lol new tack & cable , flush sickle drip tanks and fresh oil , new left side hoses and elbows to aid in off & on . She could go to field an cut another 600 acres today . No leaks , run strong , clutch and TA ARE GOOD ! Lol tony
