Thanks for the replies guys, and thanks Pat for the pics and phone call. If a guy named Earl calls, thats my uncle who will be doing the actual work. The tractor was my grandfathers, he bought it new and has sat ever since he tried welding the webbing. Now my cousin if trying to restore it for a FFA project and its become a family effort. Unfortunatly I live a couple states away, so I just get to be the research hound.
Thanks again, Ill keep you all posted.
