Nice. Very much like mine. Yours still has original rubber still on it by the looks of it. The exhaust on mine never dicooured the hood though. Just the frame upright. I wiped a lot of it off with a gentle dose of thinner.

welcome to the forum. I have a Ford 100 finished and 1 almost finished. They are a tough old tractor.I just put a lot of seat time on my 100 at the show this week, it was my main rider.

Is that the original engine for that machine? Must be with all the original stuff it has still on it. Mine is the same tractor but the engine and belt guard are painted body colour. Does anybody know why some are black and others are blue? I know the Jac chiefs have black engines a lot. Just curious. I'll check and see what I'm running for a plug when I get home. Garanteed it isn't a champion. Never had any luck with Champion stuff.

The colors were just Dependant on the year of the tractor. for the most part on the old Fords or Jacobsens the engine was the color of the tractor. The belt cover was black on most of them but again it depended what the factory decided that year.
