It jumped into the back of Mine pigup, I did`n realize it wuz there until I got back home, all the way from Marquette Nebraska to Miles City, Mt.
My 2nd cousins son was killed in a one vehicle wreck, somewheres between Omaha and Central City Nebraska. My 2nd cousin is cleaning house, getting rid of everything, going to have an auction sale, sell the property too, buying an overhead camper and, He is going to live out of that, traveling around, living here and there, with friends and relatives all over the U.S.A.
He had/has this in His will, to go to Me. He asked if I could bring it to M.C; I asked Him if He wanted it looking like it was fresh off the showroom floor. He told Me that He did`nt want it back, that it is Mine.
I wish it were under better circumstances but, when I get finished with it,I am going to try and have it looking like it came off the show room floor, just for Him.
My 2nd cousins Dad had bought this tractor, with the mower deck and a plow, He did do some tilling and mowing with this machine, He got old and then, He made a stick with a spike in the end of it, for picking aluminum cans out of the ditch and so, He would drive this tractor down the borrow ditches, sticking and picking cans, until he got to old to do that, When He died, about four years ago, My 2nd cousin bought this from out of the estate, The plow seemed to have mysteriously dissapeared, We loaded the tractor into the back of Mine pigup and hauled it from Lindsay Oklahoma to Marquette nebraska. I worked the carb. over for Marlin and got it fired and running, quite well and, Marlin used it to pull His log splitter around the yard and different residences in Marquette until enough rust had busted loose, on the inside of the fuel tank to plug the carb. again. I will remove the rust from the tank, tune the little beast and get it fired and running again then, start the dismantle and paint procedures too.
The shifter index/cover is of a fiberglass type of material, I would like to find one made of steel to replace that fiber~glass one. The hood also seems to be made of a fiber~glass material and, I would like to replace that too, with one made of steel, if these items were, at one time made of steel and if they would fit onto thei machine.
Please direct me on this matter.
