Just and update for you, I am just waiting for TS to get more media in for my blaster, and for the weather to cooperate and stop being either real windy or rain/snow showers ( doesn't mix well for blasting) the pan and fenders are in real good shape and it looks the same as the one you have. I still haven't found the year but It is looking like a 60-61, the grill and steering tower are cast iron versus cast aluminum. Talk to you soon. Chris

Ok another update lol. That was some stubborn rust on that seat pan! I went at the bottom with a needle descaler first then blasted it yesterday. sanded it up, then gave a coat of primer to see imperfections better. Today I blasted it again, then I heated and straightened the fender ends that were bent down. I filled the pin holes with my mig welder and I just got done skim coating it with glazing putty. It is really starting to look nice. I should be done with it tomorrow if all goes as planned. I just figured I would get this piece looking good for you so maybe it will inspire you to restore the rest of the tractor. :smilewink:

I am trying to get serious about this project as I want to have it done for a show coming up this September that is featuring MM. I spoke to Jay Stamm today about some parts and I am working with Maple Hunter to get a set of the correct decals for it. I still need to go through the carb and redo the wiring, but I did actually have it running late last summer. I am hoping to have a friend do the majority of the sandblasting and I am planning to paint it myself. If all goes as planned I should have some more updates to follow this spring. Here's the latest picture of it and again one I had taken when I brought it home a couple winters ago.
