I got dad's 40 out for discing yesterday. It ran perfectly. I had the three point hitch five foot disc on.

It's not pretty and shiny, but it still works hard and earns it's keep.

I took video yesterday with my new iphone. Sorry for the narrow screen, I'm still learning.

Nice straight 40 Dave. Wouldn't take much to restore that Johnny. But then again, after it's restored, it wouldn't get much work done either. Thanks for the picture. Gotta love the old two cylinders!

Thanks for sharing the photo Dave! That one will make a great candidate for restoration someday; the sheet metal looks like it's not bashed up at all!

I added a video that I shot with my new iphone. I now know I need to hold it the other way to avoid the long, narrow screen. lol

Dave, If I am correctly thinking, is that a 40U, "U" being for utility? We had at one time a M, MT and a 40T in our JD collection. Great little 2 cylinder tractors.

Good eyes Brian. I just confirmed with dad that it's a U. U is for utility. 3 pt, lights and the rear pto were extras.

I sure like that two cylinder sound.
