I know...we had deal at school and the Dairy Princess lunch. Girls 4H buddy/sitter won! So they were happy! The 170 had a leak...and bad hose..and loose oil pan...dented driveline shield....and was just very icky from 20 years an 13500hr of use. How in the heck do you get a machine clean! I go to a dealer and a old tractor and they are spotless. I did 2hr let sit and came back and did another hour. Still missed oily gunk in rails. If we had bigger heated shop (an good prices) I honestly would pull metal and paint and decal her. She deserves resto. New ones are too much $ and either too big or to small it seems. Just perfect size tractor for us. She is starting to show her age though. I hear Bob Seagar in the back ground... got EQuip for manure line. If you do it yourself you get paid. So makes it almost all covered. Doing last alley of dry cow barn. We NEED to get the far offs out of neighbors barn! Too much $ and such a PITA. We had epiphany and figured out how to add 30-40 stalls so all dry can be at 1 place. Of course now some machinery will have to sit out side. But we got used trusses to extend the shop enough to just make roof. Do what you can.... 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
