My first tractor. Got it and the implements in exchange for some sweat equity on my buddies part. He is doing the manual labor and I am funding the resurrection....for now.
The tractor had been sitting for 8 or 9 years without being used. Inflated the tires and towed it home. Dumped some ATF in the cylinders, cleaned the plugs, gapped the points, gave it a shot of starter fluid and it fired off.
So far we have
Restored the gas tank
Replaced starter switch and button
Replaced starter solenoid
Rebuilt carb and sediment bowl
Swapped plugs, oil, tranny, hydraulic, and differential fluids
Swapped fluid in the final drives
Gave it a rattle can face lift
Amazingly after all these years the 3 point lift seems to work perfectly, PTO is looking good, and we have all 10 forward gears and both reverse gears.
This tractor will be used for food plots mainly.
