Recommended Posts

For those that may be interested; a few pictures of" progress" on my 560 project started on 5/11. My initial tear down and engine pic's were posted 6/13,14/11 in coffee shop.

The parts out side have been hot presure washed,ready for any repairs then to the blaster. Tony

Few more, Pic's of the fenders I had asked about on here and finely bought. Jack screws and nuts from power adjust wheels. What a job to get them off , took two of us one with rose bud and other with inch and 11/16 wrench with 3 foot cheater one turn at a time and once off of wheel, to take nut off screw; heat and impact and reverse process. tying to save them as I was told jack screw is 138.00 each, plus nut, times 12. Other pic's are of parts that have been blasted and etch primed. I etch prime to buy me time until painting.

Couple pallets of blasted and primered parts,Inside view of fenders, few holes to fill and some rust to deal with. Wondering if blast is good enough or should they be dipped also, I am afraid there is a spot of rust started behind one of the support ribs not sure if it can be treated or do I have to piece it?

Tony,

Thanks for the pics.

I am always wondering how you are coming with this new project.

I appreciate the updates very much and I am probably one of your biggest cheerleaders on this old 560.

I've seen pics of some of your other tractors that you have done, and I know this one will be great.

Farmer.

P.S. I have a brother in law in LA.

I have always wanted to drive up the west coast sometime, while we are visiting.

Maybe we could get together.

Lookin good Tony. I can just imagine the feelings of anticipation.

If I end up buying a 1960 F560, that still has my attention, I might need to see if you'd offer some advice/assitance on it. Only thing it appears to be lacking is the injection pump. There's a story with that one.

Look forward to seeing more of your project. Thanks for sharing pics.
