I hope I never get too old for another project.

Looks great, and you didn't even require the chain saw to recover it.

Keep us posted.

no, i offered to bring a chain saw , then by the time i got there he had it pulled out for me.

Always makes me happy to see some old iron saved from the fence row or trees

had a rain here so gave me more time to check this thing out.  got fuel system cleaned out and had to replace injection pump with one i had to rob off my other tractor.  she fired up on her own power.  runs pretty good. took it for a field ride and things appear ok.  need to get some better rear tires on it and couple more sets of weights and get it field ready for fall work.

Very nice find, I love it. Every time I find a fence row tractor here,owner never seem to want to sell. I always get the same old story, gonna fix'er up some day. Even been told, don't come back, if I want to sell it I'll put a for sale sign on it😂
