544 restoration


Recommended Posts

Been a long time now but slowly getting there, when I first got it it was a standard drawbar no 3 point , old county ditch mower. Picked up cheap and swapped a 3 point on it from a 656 parts tractor I had. I originally was going to put a ice cab on it but decided on a canopy since I put a cab on the 1456. Right now it's getting overhauled and will be getting painted this summer as a gold demo look alike. I also am planning a custom made belly tank for it a shop is going to build for me, and will he to scale to fit the tractor. I put the 1456 style seat on it and a factory quick hitch. Also swapped for 8 bolt front hubs and a 666 heavier wide front. I will also have duals with matching tires , and 2 or 3 sets of weights on each side for ditch work. I'm going all out on this one everything will be rebuilt or new. Screenshot_20210902-194138_Gallery.thumb.jpg.27db8a89cede3d5c8032b980c4a73c94.jpg20190907_151304.thumb.jpg.1213634774892d0e3ca02e5b5a8977b4.jpg20190907_151315.thumb.jpg.e1d92776414ebf5fdc71e0f96d24ed26.jpg20191008_192459.thumb.jpg.4e2f2b8f8512fe52dd580797b4a609cf.jpg20191008_192359.thumb.jpg.8380e77e48fd2e271a0d1c9f0b3452aa.jpg20210516_134803.thumb.jpg.d01fae3d468d73e28467b08d1cbac883.jpg20210828_173050.thumb.jpg.e8c7f877c215cf66b5ae7068596801f5.jpg20211002_113820.thumb.jpg.2430a2db4e9f26d13c165809807f2c74.jpg20211002_120137.thumb.jpg.2c9c24133d6ab6f372e8bf981593ce32.jpgScreenshot_20220113-092656_Snapchat.thumb.jpg.066b22f9e50fcdcec32e13538792e468.jpg20220320_185425.thumb.jpg.7ec641afe51ea2c027f3d3b24daee733.jpg20220320_183243.thumb.jpg.82dd6772e4f9747694930944800ebc84.jpg

Rusty, are both the 2 point fast hitch/3 point hitch interchangeable between the 544 and 656 tractors? Reason I am asking is I want to replace the 3pth on my 656 Farmall with a 2pth. I thought only a 656 hitch will work.

544 and 656 fast hitch and 3 point hitches will exchange.   The 2 models are the same from the bell housing back.

Should be nice when you’re all done.   Make it how you like it!   Is it just the pics from MN that are sideways??  Lol. Mine are too

I'm to dumb to figure out why my phone pics do that
