Well my tractor bud that brings tractors back from Montana stopped by this weekend with another Farmall he had brought back. It's a 1951 Super C with a Farmhand loader on it. It had an IH wide front from an H put on it. I looked it over and we made a deal for the tractor. I bought the tractor and loader but not the wide front. I am going to put the correct narrow front back under it.
I am going to take the loader off for now and get the narrow front installed and run it around for a while to make sure everything is ok with it. It didn't run to bad at first but it definatley needed some TLC. After giving it a good tune up it purrs like a happy kitten now. Here are first pics of it. The left rear tire is just a temporary to get it to move. He is dropping off a much better tire and rim for it.

Wow Mike.
That old girl has some long axles.
Could that have been a Ginseng tractor?
I got a feeling here we are going to see our first set of Triples.:bounce:

Ducky, it has the optional long rear axles. They were used for vegetable and other specialty crop farming. This tractor came from sugar beet country. With the rear tires set way out they could clear 4 rows of beets planted on 26 inch centers between the tires. The tractor may have had a single front tire on it or they also made an extra wide front end that would go as wide as the rear tires. I have the narrow front on it now and have been driving it around to check it over. The rear main seal is leaking a bit but that is all I have found wrong with it so far.
He dropped off the other tire and rim for the tractor. The rim needs a little sanding and then I'll get the other rear tire mounted on it.

We do not see those in Eastern Wis. No Sugar Beets over here.
Now one in western Wis.
She's a keeper. RARE!

nice super C. We had one for a while. It was not a good ebay deal. Yours sounds pretty good. They will do a good amount of work if they have few or no issues. Good for you.
