I know I don't want that model if it takes that much teardown to get to the clutch!  :rolling:   Oughta be sweet when you get her finished!

you dont need to take it that far down just to change the clutch... looks like you started with a good tractor. and brian do you not consider it a restoration unless you take it down to the last nut and bolt?

Believe me guys it is down to the last nut and bolt. The tranny needs every seal and gasket replaced.Whatever this old gal needs it will get. You have all seen my tractors and this one will be no exception. It will be almost new condition when I say done, The tires may be different than are normally seen. It is just something to keep busy at in retirement and spend money on..

I have heard of some being taken to the last nut and bolt wire brushed then put back together. Unless it is taken to bare metal it does not count as a restore, in my book.

I must say that you are amazing. That thing is literately in pieces. I think that blaster will do a nice job of getting the paint off the parts. That style tractor is really nice. It is nice to see one of those old ones come back to life.

Glad to see her headed toward reassembly. Nothing like a complete tear down to give you a feeling of how the machine was used before and how long she will last going forward.

I think I remember how it all goes back together. I should be sand blasting as it finally stopped raining but I need to make some room
