Very nice.  Looks like the original IH muffler on it?

yes original muffler and clamp. had to remove it to get it out of the shed. did not want to take a chance and hit the muffler as it was a tight fit.

Is it a drawbar tractor? Or fasthitch.

drawbar, i just posted the drawbar as the hole is still round and matches the low hrs. on this unit. i have seen drawbars  with all enlongated holes that matched the tractors condition also... meaning rough shape.

I thought it was a drawbar tractor. My FH drawbaw doesn't look like that.

i am going to try it out at the antique tractor pulls. i have the gas model also and its in pretty much the same shape . i think the diesel should do better though. i got to replace the pump throttle shaft seal i see its leaking.

removed one rear tire this afternoon and cleaned up the rim and sprayed it with galvanized spray. i really worked good and matches the original color on rims.

Loaders are real handy for breaking down tires.  If I hadn't been doing rears for my 450 w/ fast hitch I would have tried that instead.

she is not getting any paint . those rims are going to be cleaned up and left like that for character and show  at the antique pulls. 

Good on you for leaving it original if that is indeed still the factory paint she is wearing!  

 

What a great find!  Make a great hay rake tractor!

Good set of hard rubber pulling tires for low budget puller, put them on a lathe turn them true . Those aren’t Goodyear’s

went to change out the right wheel seal today and found a nick in the axle where the seal rides. that explains the oil leak. still had the old leather seal in it. pretty sure this happened when doing the recall on these early 560's guess i get no warrany, lol. that triangle stamp means the recall had been done. have the axle fixed up tomorrow, new seal is coming.
