1947 Case VAI : New project

Hey guys! Haven't been active lately, been very busy. But, here's one of my recent picks; A 1947 Case VAI. I bought it at one of my friend's , in his woods. The tractor has been sitting for 20+ years! So, I started talking to him, and I ended up with it. Got it running right at the spot and drove it up on the trailer, and took her home. Needs a lot, but it doesn't smoke, and it runs really good. I got a tune up kit for it (new plugs, coil wires distributer cap, and all), new side tins, a new dash, new gauge's, new smoke stack, and new air cleaner. I had to sodder up the radiator, was a little... leaky Heh... But, yeah got it patched up, and works great. Have the air cleaner assembled, the new dash with gauge's assembled, and new smoke stack assembled. Still need to put the tune up kit in, convert it to 12 volts, and put the new tins on. Need to fix the lights too. No three point hitch :( Cute little farm tractor. Still need things here and there, but, I plan to restore it and FINISH it (unlike my Cub Cadet. WInk WInk). Ian
