I didn't know about the blade. Add for that. The last time, I bought a pair of tires,
they were nearly $1,000 installed.[Imports]. A little diesel seepage shouldn't bother at this point. Can probably be fixed with a new gasket or adhesive. I don't know what a southern climate does, but I wouldn't think 3 year old diesel fuel would be "bad'.
My use of "Vintage" in this context is just an expression, meaning approximate. It was the last year for English Fordson tractors. They made more of them under a different name in Spain. In the area of old cars, Vintage is something like 1919-1930. I don't know if tractor guys go by that very much. And they aren't like "Vintage Wine", in that certain years are better than others, but some might be thought so. For example, the Ford 3000, or JD 4020, or Farmall M. Some may think of 1942-45 tractors as "War Vintage", since they had special features to reduce use of strategic materials.
