That's a great one to start with and thanks! I saw your post on another forum that I'm not a member of yet. My '59 is tucked away in the shed waiting until spring. I'll be looking for a plow for it so I can move some snow with it next year. Good luck and have fun working on yours. I had a great time bringing mine back to life.

Wheel weights are a tough find, but they are out there. 6#'s apart, cool! My tractor was originally purchased in this area of NY when new. The guy I bought it from pulled it out of the original owners barn where it sat for quite a few years.

That's cool Jeff, what are the chances of that! How are things going with the DB sickle attachment you recently picked up. Man,that was a great haul.

no progress on the sickle until the weather get more stable. I have the corn wagon on that side of the shop right now. I figure it to take about 3 days to disassemble/blast and repaint the mower. Have decided which one of the 12 tractors will get the full time duty of carrying it around yet.

That is a classic pic and I saw it in your post on the other forum, awesome! It's always great to see them sitting tucked away like that. That one looks to be in really good shape.
I hear you Jeff, winter has put a damper on things for me too, but spring is on the way man! I'm looking forward to the progress.

Two grand is a bit steep in my book, but man that one looks great and the deck is in nice shape, too.
