In your pictures I see the hydraulic lift unit. That option will bring $250.00 to $300.00 by itself! I'd say you made an excellent deal!

Looks very complete. The hydraulics are on ebay once in a while for 300+. BTW, I don't think that pump will run a loader,from what I understand, the loader had it's own pump that ran off the front shaft. Great find Walt & I like the picture of your test-pilot (cat).:D

After I thought of the loader, I saw some pictures of then, and did notice the front tank, which means a remote pump too...oops. I'm leaving the pump and cylinder off for now to check it all out first and repair/replace what's needed. That's where most of the mess came from, (see below).

Lightened her up a bit today. There were a few missing bolts, but no broken parts.

With the tractor semi stripped like you see, I stood it right up, balancing it on the tires
and the top (link), for a long needed bath.

You're sure not wasting any time getting that thing torn down Walt! Looks great! You'll have her back together in no time!

Well, I've been away from my employment for 2 months.. until my employer
gathers up some more money for me to finish the remodel on his house in Long Island.
Before then, I was only home on the weekends. Been working out of state for almost
three years now. So I'e been home catching up on my own stuff.

I can't spend much $$ all at once, and I'm aiming at getting this tractor to look and work like new.
Not restored exactly correct, but cleaned, blasted, body work, paint, new tires and no leaks.
I'll need this one to work by spring though.

Mary and I had no clue as to the value placed on these oldies, except that they look cool and work hard.
And then, a day may come when it may be sold, so it should look and work like it did as new.

I need a light kit, hyd hoses, regulator, decals, misc seals and gaskets, wheel weights and tires. I'd like to
put a pair of 23 x 8.5 x 12 industrials on the rear for my own use here.

The mower deck has worn through under the tensioner spring, an easy fix, otherwise it looks good. Needs paint.
And the snow blower, I may or may not use, but I'll get it looking good too.

Tomorrow I start checking seals, drain and fill the trans to check for leaks and finish degreasing.

But I'm not giving up on it, till I have to.

thanks
walt
