It's with sad news that my Ford 420 industrial with FEL may have seen its last days.
The tractor has plenty of oil. The engine started growling then start shuddering/squealing and intermitten smoking. Then I shut her down.
Not too long ago my old battery shorted out and caught fire. I caught it just in time and put it out. Just the wiring that goes to the hour meter behind the glass and all of the wiring for lights/turn/etc. None of those items were working anyway. Had to replace the diesel return hose and bought a brand new battery. It seemed to work just fine after that.
I can send you a video of it briefly starting. You will have to message me or I can send it email.
I can't attach the video here as the server cannot handle a video.
I wonder if it will be worth the $$$ to get this workhorse of a tractor going again? Or is it time to make it into yard art?
This Texan is sad.....
