Thanks for the help old. I apologize if I have offended you with the term restoration. I would agree that the term can be used loosely and is based on ones interpretation of the word. For your peace of mind here is what has been done to the tractor. The block was decked and hot tanked, new sleeves, new pistons, new rings, new main and journal bearings, all new gasket kit, new electrical harness, new ammeter, new radiator, new temperature gauge, new tires, new front tire seals, one new rear rim, the other was repaired, all sheet metal was sandblasted, primed then painted, new battery box, original rear light was added back, brand new decal kit, new hydraulic hoses. I think that is it. That is my interpretation of a restoration, I hope it fits your definition. Thanks again for your help and I'll be sure to pot picks when I am done.

Guess me need to advise all NEW-comers that the Politically CORRECT term has become "Resurrected"..

Restored ONLY applies to "EXPO-Quality" Restorations now...

Come on, fellas...these are TRACTORS, for Heaven's sake..I don't like to see those "SNERT" type remarks here...WE are supposed to be "Better" than our City brethren...

Your close to the term restore now all you have to do is rebuild the transmission and rear end to be a full restore LOL. As for help I hope what I said helped you

What if they don't need to be repaired? If you inspect the rear end and tranny does that count?

If things measure out to be in spec yes then it is covered. Reason I am so tight on this is I have seen far to many that said it was original and have aftermarket aluminum valve covers or a tractor like say a WD with WD45 decals but yet the guy would swear up down and side ways it was in fact a WD45 but yet the engine had the WD side cover and the shifter was the WD straight shifter so over the years I have found the term restore was fiction in at least 75% of the stuff and yes I will call them out
