Nah, I thought the same thing, but I don't get into fixing up a tractor and putting it away because it's to nice. This old tractor is going to get a loader, it's probably going to get scratched and dented pushing around brush, ect. The old thing is going to be worked fairly hard and probably run about everyday. That's what it was designed to do so I might as well use it for it's original purpose.

Today I put down grip tape to make it easier to climb on and off. I also got one side of the emblems on. I ended up using silicone, that's what part of the emblems were being held on with when I peeled them off, it seemed to stick really good so I thought I'd give it a try. The pipe leaning against the emblem is holding it down tight while it was drying.

 

I'm hoping to have time tomorrow to put on a nice new fluffy seat.

Looks like I'm finished, I got the rest of the emblems on this morning, I also ditched the bowl on the gas tank, I replaced it with a inline filter and shut off valve.

 

I got it running this afternoon and I drove it 4 miles to my neighbors shed and I will put on a new fluffy seat on it Monday.

I finally got the seat on, it didn't take long once I found the time to mess with it.

I also measured the loader and it looks like it's going to be a perfect fit. I will even have enough room between the tire and loader frame to get on from the side instead of the back. My biggest worry about the loader is that it is narrow. I believe that the hood will just squeeze in between the arms.

Thanks all, I also liked that picture, I will half to get my brother out here with his good camera and get some real nice pictures. He is also really good at the photoshop program and he can really make it look nice!. I took the photos with my new Samsung 7 note, I really like the camera on it! (to bad the phone is now recalled)

 

I went out today and started the old 400, I lifted the 2-pt and oil started running all over the operators platform. I quickly shut it off and I starting taring it apart. I had to remove the hood, dash and a bunch of other stuff. I found one of the steel hydraulic lines had a small rust hole. I guess I will start brazing on the lines tomorrow morning, I am going to braze over all the rust pitting and hopefully it wont spring another leak.
