Hey guys, figured I'd post my last restore job on a Ford i got from my uncle after he passed. He was a New Holland parts manager in Tulsa Oklahoma and this came as a trade in from a school. He bought it from the company and tore into the project, first picture shows what it looked like when I got it. He had the intention of finishing it but i guess it sat for years in boxes, being that he had no time to get to it. So I'm finishing it for him. Anyway, puctures to follow:

Looks good. That would be a challenge to take it from a box of parts to operational.

Nice work! I always wondered if these were made by the same people that made my Kubota G5200, they have so many similarities like the frame, rearend, foot pedals, dash tower and front axle.

I like how it looks blacked out. How does it run?

Looking good. Starting from a basket can be difficult if you don't know something about it.

It runs like a top! The only thing I do not like is that it blows a little blue, hardly noticeable but, I want it fixed. New Holland(CNHI) actually has really good support on this machine still. Which is surprising because it's 28 years old! I just picked up a pto shaft for it from the dealer....600$ later I had it in my hand! Lol
