Where are you located? Do you need all the canvases, do you know the sizes are that you need?? I have a bunch and you can still read John Deere on them

In Northwest Ohio. Main bottom canvas appear to be 4'3" wide and circumference length should be 11' 4" long
The "top two - lift canvas" 48" wide & 7'7" long and 4' 3" wide and 7'6".
Not sure of the exact name for each of the canvas so let me know if you need more info.

Yor are alucky lad, Leon, if someone has canvases for you!

I'm working on a McCormick binder, and as far as restoration goes, all I can say is it's very rewarding. Spray any frozen bits with anti-sieze lube and be patient to let it soak before using a wrench.
You'll find the old iron nuts'n' bolts undoe a lot easier than modern ones.
Keep any rotted wood as a pattern for what you have to make. Same with the tin.
Be patient if the knotter is froze, they don't like being hit with a hammer.:-)
It's all straight forward really.
Oh,... get a reprint of the book! (Setting up and operation)
Can't begin to say how valuable the manual is.

Good luck.
