Here's some bigger photos

(The last 3 are the 3 paint jobs. First was a crappy old white and silver. Was very similar to when I found it in the junk pile.. it was a solid grey/silver back half, then a darker white for the hood. Then I painted it the same. Then I painted it new Holland blue. And a off white back half. That back half paint is the same for now. "Needs back half repainted). Then finnaly, I painted it a farm all red. The original paint was a off white and teal. If I would've known that it was that color at the time I would have painted it that..)

-update: video of it running linked here.

again, its not THE best tractor here on the forum. Alot still could be done.

Like:

a way better paint job

engine and tranny full rebuild (although still working)

original color

new bearings

etc.

All listed above has not been done. heres what has been done to the tractor:

several paint jobs

rims painted

new air cleaner

carb cleaned

new tires

deck removed

new drive belt

tranny woodruff key replaced (big pain in the a**)

new fasteners

deck linkage removed

of course, new oil, gas, fluids.. Although i need to change the oil very soon...

If i ever do another paint job it will be original color. Although (I dont like the original color), that would be what id paint it... I like the red color. The red color looks the best in my opinion.

She still has many hours left in her! When somthing breaks, i will repair it. And keep repairing it till the frame splits in half!

We used to have a monthly contest where tractors were submitted and voted on. The winner got their tractor on the front page for a month and then went into the featured tractor section from the main page. We haven't done it since April. If you want to put this in the gallery, Go to the gallery from the main forum page and there will be a way to upload it there. On my screen gallery is 4th from the left across the top.

That's a software issue! That may be fixed sometime in 2024!

I got the same thing when I tried. Didn't realize there was an issue here too.
I think a lot of it is due to the Flash uploader. That support is going away real soon also.
