Ryan, great haul and excellent deal. I have to say I like the front tires on the 65. But what happened to the hood on the 56??

Casey, I took the hood off so I could get a look at the engine better and see what the deal with that was. One of the tabs on the back of the hood is broken off so I will have to weld it back on.

Looks good! Here pretty soon you are going to have to build a bigger garage.

Finally got to see the pictures on my iPad ( yesterday I was looking at them on my phone). Awesome deal! Nice tractors! Congrats on a great find!

I need one now! I don't have a lot of room to work and not much room to store my tractors either.

Today I was able to get the attachments down the hill onto a pallet, so they are out of the way and off of the ground.

A 10 inch plow, the angle adjustment is seized.

A very heavy set of discs. The discs on this are also seized up.
Posted Image

A spring tooth harrow. The mounting bracket is missing for the tooth on the ground. It is simple and I should be able to make one up without much trouble.
Posted Image

The '65 had the brackets on it to mount a snow plow, but the PO did not want to get rid of the actual plow. :mad2:
Posted Image

It also had this homemade scoop thing. You hook a chain to the front and somebody walks behind it. When pulling it, the person walking lifts up on the handles and the front digs in. Lower the handles and dump the dirt where you want it.

Cool attachments Ryan, the slip scoop could come in handy and hopefully the others free up OK

Ryan, remove the plow's adjustent system from the beam, then run it in your E-tank, and wire brush it good. If still seized tight, use an acet. torch on the threaded block & while hot, the threaded rod should thread on out.

I will go look at it, but I don't know what condition it is really in. The seller said it is fair-good but we all know a seller can lie about what they have.

I took off the transmission cover on the '56... not good inside! When I picked them up it would barely shift. Just my shifting a bunch it loosened up a little bit. I think I will try the 50/50 mixture of ATF and acetone on this.

The cover- I will take it apart, clean it and rebuild the shifter button.
Posted Image

I wanted to see what the engine was up to so I first cleaned the points and the coil contact tab. I put the cover back on the ignition box (I don't know what it is called) and tested for spark, nothing. I took off the ignition box an there is an internal spring that sticks. I got it loosened up by playing with it and a bit. I put it back on and it has weak spark. I will have to take the ignition box apart and see if I can get that spring to work better.

Looks like you got some good work to do. Have you done any PK tranny's before? I've done the bottom half on one, and now I have to do the top half (shifter) on one for a friend. I understand there's some tricky parts of getting the shifter guides out.

I have not rebuilt one... yet. I have done a few of the shifter buttons, though. The first one you do you will likely have to figure it out. Then once you do it and see what has to be done first, second, third and so on it is very simple the next time you have to do one. The last one I did, I took it apart, welded, grinded it and put it back together in a little over a 45 minutes. They are very simple to do.

It might be worth just taking that transmission apart and at least replace bearings that are bad . Al
