Actually, I am not much into these total restorations.....I got this tractor last week with a MF12 which I turned over to Doug (DH1).....I stripped all the bodywork off of it the other day, power washed it and got it fired up today. It runs OK, smokes a bit, but I figure it hasn't run in about 10 years, so it can only get better the more I run it. Drove it around the yard a few times, the hydro seems to function well...so, I guess I will clean up and paint the frame and start putting it back together......I am debating whether to fix the bodywork up or go with that rat rod look with the old patina etc.........Will add pics as I go along...if I think of it.

Would like to figure out the year, I know its from 71-76........

# on frame.....205270 N D1

Engine #s
K301AS
Spec.....474706
Serial....4026807

The gas tank on this leaks slightly.......bottom has been repaired before.....Does anyone heard of a type of sealant that is put inside, sloshed around and let dry and it seals up the pinholes?

I will see if I can find the name of that stuff.I did a Model A Ford gas tank with it last year.

I use "Kreem" fuel tank liner kits. NEVER had it fail ever even many years after lining. Motorcycle shops usually carry it, as well as JC Whitney, Dennis Kirk, and many other places.

Spent part of the weekend cleaning it up, painting the engine and frame........I am not stripping this thing right down, just making it look better.....I had to weld the steering shaft that goes through the steering box.....a common problem on these.......This morning, I laid the bodywork back on for a trial fit.

This will be a nice project for you Poncho especially since you don't normally restore them :D Did you pull the trailer with your old ford pickup?
