That's interesting to put a gear set in what looks like a pipe. I was wondering if it was some kind of flexi-shaft like a weedeater or a couple of universal joints.

That's the way I was guessing the blades were driven. I think it's a pretty cool way to drive them as compared to being belt driven. Nice old tractors.

Thanks Chuck!!

I beleive its original with paint and stickers. Its more orange than red closer to Ariens in color.
I would love a manual or more info on this gem.

The Clinton actually runs pretty good, I will need to do a carb kit on it and repair
the pull starter.

The paint will clean up excellent except the tops are a little rough.

I have always wanted to know the original paint colors.
The first farm-ette i got was my grandfathers model 75(he died in 73) I was 8 and have been taking my 75 apart,fixing ,painting it since.It had trans problems and had sat outside and the paint had faded and got chaulky
I swear the thing was more orange,but last time i painted it about 1995 someone told me that tom moore was a CEO or big wig at internationmal harvester and they were painted IH red.
I really would like to paint it the correct colors(it also has a black frame that needs to be silver)but than again i would be afraid to use it then.and i do use it a lot.
The model 45 i have i got in ohio from a guy that had all the manuals i bought.Its been painted red.
This guy out bid me on e-bay for a farm-ette dealer manual up to $130 i think.
So i contacted him and asked if he could make me a copy,he said he would sell it to me with 2 farm-ettes.
So i drove from maryland to ohio to get them.I was not married or had kids then,now i dont think i could get away with it .
My son is 6 now and i really want to get him into farm-ettes,thats why i use the model 75 so much.
So i just found this web site and still learning how to use it,there is so much info here and great people.
They just made me a farm-ette catagory and i will try to get some stuff uploaded soon.
I will start with the 45 or Famous 45 ,i think i even have a post card with one on it.
I have price lists ,service bullitens all kinds of good stuff.
There is a little listed under lambert,but the farm-ette catagory is still empty.
I will let you know when i get it there.

Thanks,Chuck

Thanks again,

Looking forward to the the future info to find and share!!!!!!!!

Ed

Farm-ette 45 post card back.jpg I am glad you could use the manual.I know how it feels to find this stuff.Thats why i have been collecting farm-ette stuff online since i got a computer,thats 15 years now!Heres a copy of the Farm-ette post card i have.I will try to put it in with the manuals under advertising.I also just scanned a couple magazing ads i have.I would love to have some good color samples of the paint on your tractor.Or how about some decal pictures?I see in this post card there is a decal on the deck.Do you have one there?The problem with Farm-ettes is the decals were so thin and came off pretty quick.I bet a lot of people have one and don't know what it is
Thanks, Chuck
