My $5,000 Farmall A.

Well $5,000 maybe a too much, but when you figure the time I have spent working on it $5,000 seems about right. I have been following this discussion board for a while getting tips and just enjoying the posts. Now it is my time to update you all on my project.
Iíve had this tractor for 15 years. Traded my aunt a Honda rototiller for it. I have used it to plow my gardens, plow snow, mow, and haul firewood. This fall the old girl started to develop oil leaks. I even lost use of the left brake due to oil. So I decided to do a little fix up. I found the ytmag site and got interested getting the A in shape. With seven oil seals, two brakes later and now 100+ hours in work getting ready to paint, I am ready to document what I have accomplished. I will put all the details on my web site soon, but there are some things I done to the tractor that many may find interesting. It is a 1941 A, so no 3 point or hydraulics. Iíve added both and will share my designs. Iíve posted some pictures of my progress to date, enjoy. I donít have many pictures of the tractor up to now, I didnít think it was picture worthy. After paint and decals I think she will be more camera-friendly. I will update my progress from time to time. I will, in all probability, need some questions answered.

I have over $2200 already, in my '41 A, $1700 just in my engine rebuild. New sleeves, bearings, turned crank, pistons, rings, valve job, on and on. I intend to pass this on to my son, who should have no trouble with it at all. Seals were leaking, brakes soaked, etc. Sound familiar?? Glad to see you are doing it right - it takes time, and yes, money. It is slowly taking shape. I am removing dents, priming and painting what I can, as it goes back together. I am very interested in your 3-point and hydraulics design. Take care and good luck.

Don't feel too bad. I stopped counting on my H. But I know it's at least 4000.

Are you by remote chance related to a Bill Ulm who was from Ill. and flew in the USAF?

I don't think so. I am related to a number of the Ulm's in the US, but I don't know Bill. I have an Uncle Joe (William Joseph Ulm), but he was from Connecticut.
