Sounds nice. How about some pictures as it progresses.:smiles:Originally posted by freebird
M restoration of my 56 lo boy began a few months back when my neighbor insisted I take off the tank and re-paint it as is was getting pretty pink in color and rusting. We took it all apart and repainted the hood, grille and doglegs. The chrome came real clean too. The we made a new screen out of 1/4" galv. screening too. when asked about the ears sticking out of the hood, well that was for headlights. I found some new locally. THat got the bug going. I became a member of this board and the Farmall cub board and with help got lotsa goot tips. Then I got a new wiring harness and installed it. Before it got cold I have removed the dash, fenders and seat and have re-painted them. In the spring I will continue with the rear wheels and new brakes. It sure feels good walking by it and seeing the progress!
Slips, unless it's had some pieces changed that's not a REAL early A. Judging from the short filter housing, rubber gearshift knob (missing) and place for a starter, I'd say 45-46?Originally posted by slipshod
I have gone over this A and figured out what it needs.Starter is missing,Exhaust lift needs quite a few pieces,tires are dry rotted,ignition system has been canibalized,the grille is rotted off on the bottom,plus all the little things along the way.The engine is free,all the driveline seems to function properly,the radiator looks like at one time it was replaced.
My question is do I fix it or sell it?I have a buyer for it,he wants it because it is a very early A. I don't have the serial number in front of me.I like the size and look of this machine.
