There is a resistor on the back of the switch, in use when set to L or D. In H or B, it is bypassed. Glad to hear it's still working. For units that many times are left outdoors, Farmalls are amazingly tough.

I just found this thread Doug. Cool project. Looking forward to seeing you

progress here. That'd be a nice size tractor for a trail ride in the fall.

Thanks Will and if you have a trail ride I already know what tractor I'm bringing.

 

A Massey that you don't have.

Never, a very HIGH degree of accuracy and caution is used.

 

An old guy should me that method yrs ago, he said be careful.

Today at work I won the Lottery.
We have a lottery pool at work, play ever week, have done so since I started there.
Today we Won $5,500. my share is $130.
So since it's hot as nails here I'm not going to do anything on the tractor, I'm going out for Dinner and a Beer.

Still working on prepping for Paint when I have a chance, Sandblasters don't like the humid weather, tonight I put a water separator on the Blasting cabinet, helps, works better and I was surprised at how much water it collected. Without it all that water was going through the gun making the sand sticky and not come out.
I can only do the smaller parts in the cabinet, most of them are done now.

Update Today I was able to get some Red paint on it, only painted the front wheels and front wheel weights but it's a step forward.
Also I discovered a coolant leak at the bottom of the rad.

Looks like it has been repaired in the past and this leak wasn't there when I got it.
Any suggestions on what to do to fix the leak?

Doug, it's either a full out fix on that or (and this is what I would try first) a tube of Alumi Seal and a full days working it to seal it up.
