just sealed the deal on my latest project tractor.now just have to drive to Knoxville to fetch it home. looks like it was painted by first graders but I can cure that with some elbow grease and IH red paint. been looking for a 230 that suits me since dad swapped his off to a new IH484 in 1981.this is not his but will look good with new paint rolling across the burley fields of KY. it is going back to work. I plan on souping it up with a new overbore kit making 135 CI's instead of 123 and a few other tricks. Plan on getting 35 HP out of it. at 35 with enough weight it will handle 3x14 plows. will put my factory IH C-32 loader on it.
