The color is as near as I can tell , all of my research indicated that the red pigment in the paint could vary from one factory to another and during world war 2 the pigment was very scarce sometimes. I was able to compare the new red that is on the T6 now to a few spots on another machine where it had been exposed to very little if no sun and it’s very close , but I will say I’ve never been to a tractor show where all of the red tractors were the same color . Just out of curiousity does it look right to all of you or is it off , I’m kind of curious ! Thanks

Looking good!    Question, what weight capacity are the axle stands? (pounds or kilograms) I understand both.

Nice work, but be careful - move your car it will end up RED!

TD-18,

What is the current status on the 6? Awesome restoration and attention to details!

I just noticed your hand clutch handle is way forward compared to mine. Never had thought about it, but is it adjustable for location?

Regards,

 Chris

Still making progress everything is ready for paint , the rollers are disassembled and the new seals are here , the roller shafts will go off to get fixed up , and when the new bushings arrive they can be assembled into the roller frames and installed onto the chassis

Thanks for the comments , the roller and idler shafts have gone off to have the grooves from the seals repaired, while I’m waiting I have a “yellow “ project to work on
