Traded several pieces of equipment for this 1953 SC footclutch yesterday.I guess I am a sucker for Eagle Hitch tractors
It smokes and doesnt run exactly right.Wrong mag I wonder if it has a couple wires crossed.Fresh brush paint over dirt and what appears to have been a nice original(darn it!!!!!!!!!).Best set of fenders I have,seems to be a low hr tractor that was kept inside as the tires/steering wheel appear original and in very good condition.Eagle hitch isnt all broke up.

Looks great from here, but I cringe a little every time I see old iron painted without good prep. I could almost even live with a brush job if it had been properly prepped.

I have a 1940 LA that was shipped to MT Dew Coal Co.
I will check on this SC and see where it was shipped.
Do your SC's have foot throtlle? This one does not,I have a 54 SC that does.

Good looking tractor Nick I'm glad you got it and from the look of the exhaust manifold and the pedals I belive your right I don't think its been used that much either. Hope you get it lined out pretty easy and if you got some cultivators you can try it out on that corn its looking pretty good to.

Did you get the top link with it? its a tuff one to find.
No,I didnt get the toplink with it.I do have a toplink for it I bought on ebay awhile back.I didnt realize the SC toplinks can be different from the DC's until a friend told me.I had both but I guess I never had them side by side to see the difference.

Do your 53 SC's have sealed beam headlights?
I have a friend with a 53 SC footclutch without sealed beam headlights and he believes it's original.I have an extra set of bulb style headlights and I dont have any extra sealed beam lights.
