Been busy , nothing to report unfortunately.

The goal is to have the engine together and tractor fully apart before spring.

Been so cold here haven't had much of anything new going on with the Project.

Buying up some new parts but that's about it, there's so much snow I cant even get the chassis back to the heated shop if I wanted to as I didnt clear a wide enough path with the blower :wallbanging:

Out of room to put all the snow. I was amazed to see the amount New England got in just a few weeks.
