Just got home from church and running errands, looking at the W6 on the trailer yet,realized that it is really massive and well built for 1949, as I said the other I will be stepping up my search for a 3 bottom plow, there are not many of them around here either ūüėé

I pull a 3/16 little genius with my daughters M around here at plow days I may try Dads W6 he got a few years ago one of these times it has a M&W 9 speed and was rebuilt back in the 60’s with an overbore kit the former owners son said

Finally got to work on the W6, ¬†got the oil changed, put a new battery in it and new spark plugs. Starts right up, clutch feels good , brakes work and doesn‚Äôt have any odd grinding or noises, took it for a 1/2 mile tractor ride ¬†and had a blastūüėéA1BA527B-732B-4C9B-9E95-9DBDEA0123E6.thumb.jpeg.9eff416864975c9b4f46027f5e3b51c1.jpeg

You got a great deal there.

The W6 is a neat old tractor on tractor rides to ,we normally drive our 45 W6 to a vintage show we support every year (a bit over 10 miles from Dads place). We have also driven it the 50 or so miles between Dads place and mine a couple of times. Most people think we are nuts for driving it so far but it is really nice just to slow down and cruise along. 20200706_102940.thumb.jpg.1790c5807c0e9c3a212b48d4bb8c2bab.jpgWe even get volunteers to drive the tractors to the show and home afterwards.

Ah soo

My engrish not soo gooood lol

The savior to my longlivety is to not be related to a killer beez or a tribesmen or ....

Mike's offer hasn't been forgotten  and is warmly being worked on however CT scans and blood tests etc are part of my recovery. I have to agree wholeheartedly with Marty - cruising on the W6 is laid back and a neat way to "slow down"
