Picked this up last fall. Was going to be a winter project but got put on hold for awhile. Hope to get back on it in late spring or early summer. Got it for $650
It also came with a set of rear weights, and the lift arms and some misc. brackets.



Worst part was the gas tank. Been damaged and the patch job didn't hold up too good. Tank has since been stripped,
repaired, lined and painted.


Needed a battery box so I bought one from a guy online. To my surprise, his idea of a box is 2 sides :roll: So I made a lid for it.


Front tires were shot so I bought new ones. Rears were like new but lightly checked. Good enough for me.


Someone had welded up the hole for the hand crank so I re-opened it thanks to Soundguy for giving me
the dimensions of the hole. Primed and painted.





It had like no brakes and hardley any clutch so I did adjustments on both. Next time either of these are
needed it will need replacing, but working good for now.


Parts waiting for paint. Was glad that John M let me know that I had the air cleaner in the wrong place. Said it needs to go through the
hole in the hood. Thanks John. I'm new to Farmall's and can use all the advice I can get :lol: :lol:


Got the lift arms painted and test fitted.


Wheels are done.


Still have a long ways to go. Looking forward to getting back on it once we get moved and settled in at the new house.

Yep. Second one we've used that on. Did Colin's 850 with it. So far I like it. Been told if you don't use the hardener with it, it'll fade fast if it sits outside.

I remember these, have you done any more to it?
Not a whole lot. Wheels, sheet metal, fenders, air cleaner and drawbar is all painted. Repaired the steering wheel, tore the carb down and cleaned it up. Put the wheels back on so we can move it. Also put a Soundguy special gas tank on so we can drive it up on the trailer when ready. Didn't really feel like winching it up. Pretty much just need to paint the chassis, wheel weights and seat.
