The 766 my Dad brought to snow plow,  blow snow had fluid only.  I noticed 1 is just about to leak onto the floor of my shop.  There is roughly 900lbs of fluid in each tire.  Found this retired gentleman selling them on yester year classified.  I don’t it spin out in field while moving snow.  Picked up this truck load for $750 US dollars.

What is that tank bolted to lower right side?

I’m assuming your talking about the red & white 1466?? It’s a belly tank.  Never seen 1 in person till today.

Row crop farming isn’t really done in the west.  Not enough rain,  not enough heat days,  lucky if got 6” of dirt.  The rest is clay underneath.  So hence standard model tractors with implement towed off the draw bar.
