Bought this 450 5 years ago it ran was well used but had a fresh rebuild on the motor. It was my divorce present to myself. It sat and sat  can blew off exhaust at some point  had to pull the head off it freed it up runs great now. Spit it last fall to do the TA over had it back together  this winter to find out one of the TA pressure plate fingers broke off. Spit it again another new  TA pressure plate. Put it back together  new seals in the PTO  orings in the hydraulic valve body under the gas tank. I have some nice tin work to go on this tractor when it’s ready but for now it doesn’t have inside shelter yet and I want to run it a bit to check for leaks and paint it next year. It was nice to bring it home from dads shop tonight and take it for a ride around the farm. I still have some odds and ends to button up but nothing I can’t do in my open air shop

That is a great feeling and five years to get there. You've got more patience than most! Had that feeling last year. Awesome when one you've been working on come to life, even if the steering is backwards! That was easy to fix.

Was going to ask if that trailer was big enough but if you're hauling three, that make sense.

This trailer usually get loaded up pretty good I’m only putting a 450 and a M on it this weekend the 450 is 6500# and the M is 7200 so it’s a lighter load than normal for it this is what it’s usually hauling

Good for you for sticking with it and getting it to this point!

Always been trying to get there been working on buying parts and prices for this tractor for a few years bought a 311 plow for it in 2019 at red power for 75$   had to rent a small uhaul trailer to get it home. In the mean time My Daughter won her M  A few months after getting this. Then I bought a wrecked( from flipping off a trailer 53  SM got that runs me and put a wide front under it. Then  picked  up another 53 SM with a loader on it that needed a motor. We needed a loader tractor at the farm so it was a cheap loader tractor. Fast forward to this spring my girlfriend wants a tractor of her own  so we found a 450 a guy was  making into a puller. I bought the original spin out wheels and  hubs for the tractor a few years ago for my 450 project it has 9 bolt hubs and 18.4x38 tires on back. So my poor old 450 kept getting pushed to the back burner. Now it’s at the farm I can tinker with it here and there easier than going to DADs to dedicate time to work on it.
