I bought this Farmall M a couple weeks ago for a high school restoration project.I bought it not running but it turned out to just need a good carb cleaning,spark plugs,and draining the tank of all the old gas. After that it fired right up. I did some fieldwork with it(tedding,raking,haulingwagons) to figure out what its goingto need for an overhaul. I am goingto refurbish it over the winter. My plan is to have it on display for my graduation party. I will have a thread for the refurbishing process.

That's a great looking M. How is the loader, no hydraulic issues I hope. It is a very capable tractor. I hope you get it done for graduation.

I like the standoff photograph. Thanks for showing the M.

The loader works good(for its age). It doesn't have any down pressure and it has a trip bucket. It only came with the snowplow looking thing on it. I am trying to locate a bucket for it.

Thats more like it. Sweet looking M. I see it has the 2 way hydraulic system. I just put one on I had around on my M yesterday. Did you build a holder for the hydraulic hoses or just let them lay?
