 Well…… If anyone is going to make it look easy to the rest of us, it will be you! 👍🏻

Will you do a complete restoration on it?

Whatever you decide good luck, and keep us posted of course!

It actually looks like it will be a fun project!! It’s already dismantled, so right there half the work is done.  Looks like you got all the parts, some seals, gaskets, and other things, and I’m sure it needs more, but still, it’s another one saved!! Good luck! Can’t wait to see progress pictures!!

Plan is to get it put together enough to fire it up and drive it and see what works, what leaks, what going to give me trouble. If drive train is good, ill put rest back together along with a ROPS i took off my 756. I just put a 2355 loader on my 1066 but it will make its way onto the 1026 when its field ready. Im out of 18.4x38 tires. Only 38" rollers i have are 20.8-38 rice and canes i just took off a 1456. So bare with me on tire combo on this 1026 untill i can drag home more Stones. If only it was a gold demo.....

At least it was under a roof! Well most of it.  How long has it sat like this?

Looks to be a great project. Nice find.

Looks like the Farmall A someone on here picked up a few years back.  

i should show this to my wife, she nags me about taking on projects that are "too big" , this one should set the bar high enough for the projects i like to take on without being told its too big 😜

Good luck guys and keep us updated on your progress.

Looks like a fun project. Keep us updated on rebuilding it it will be cool to see it go through the stages, I'm sure that you will make it look great! 

One thing that I noticed when looking at the pictures is what its mounted on the left fender?

Seat base was a rebuilt base from Devons tractor parts. Lots of $ just in new parts. Fender had open top toolbox on it. Took it off. Cant stand bolted on crap. It even had 2 6v batteries sitting in front. No room to take them home that day. I was more concerned getting all the loose pieces loaded especially the hard to find and high $ parts.
