Oh we won't be collecting any attachments. I'm hoping to convince Adam to sell the steel wheels because we are never going to run the tractor with them and I really don't want to move them again. Once was enough!


If they are the "original to this tractor" steel wheels, then it'd seem a shame to separate them. Once gone, they'll be gone for good.

Yeah, their very hard to get back once gone. The "spikes" come off & you can put rubber cleats on in place of them for parades.

Of course, they do bring a decent $ and can help offset your purchase.

Very nice. I've got a 1935 Farmall F-30 which has a very similar engine. Mine was stuck when my dad gave it to me. I has able to remove the pistons and free up the lifters. Then I honed the cylinders, got rings and gaskets. Runs great and I have a pully type mower that I use on it. Its on steel wheels but the metal lugs have been removed and rubber tread bolted down.

What do you think the full set of steel wheels would be worth? I'd prefer the short term gain of the money, room, and not having to move them in the future. I have a feeling Adam is going to keep this tractor and as I said, we won't put the steel wheels on or invest in putting the steel rims or rubber on them. If he was going to turn around and sell it within this summer, I would probably agree to keep them and allow the next lucky owner to move them!

A Bolens is sitting next to the shed and there is a gasket set in my back seat for the new beast.

Adam learned how to plow today. A friend down the street invited us over to use his plow and work on a section of his property. Taught Adam quite a bit. By the end, Adam seemed to get the hang of it well. Uploading videos, but here are some photos. It got a bit muddy!

A lot of clay too. I was impressed. I was even more impressed when our friend started his McCormick Deering. I think his pinky could have gotten the old thing started. Barely cranked it and it's been sitting for quite some time!
