I started the V4-6 restoration process today. I have the tractor torn apart down to the rolling frame. Over the weekend I'll reduce it all down to components. Ran out real quick for a couple pics.

I think this tractor will get to wear a Bush Hog push blade. I don't have a mowing deck for it, so it's a good candidate for the blade. Of course the blade will get restored also. This will be a long time getting done, so do not hold your breath! I figure a good year or more, all depending on free time.

I figure it will be fun, aggravating, challenging, hard work, and in the end, total satisfaction! :thumbs: I will likely just strip the frame by hand, then do all the smaller parts by electrolysis in a smaller container instead of the barrel. I will strip, prime each part, then wrap & put away till paint time.

HH60, and the correct engine. Steve (caseguy) brought it as a gift to my plow day. Bill (gttinkerer) shipped me carb & air filter for it too! And Alan (MH81) sent a ring gear flywheel for the HH60 to make it more OE correct.
That's why I chose this as my next project. With support like this, how can I go wrong!
Kind of like Christmas! :D
  • MH81 and HDWildBill have said thanks
