This is defiantly on of those tractors that could have been junked and parted out as it had a rough life and has many issues. But when I look at how rare this one is with only 9 made with the bubble nose it makes it worth saving. If I was not a heavy equipment mechanic for a living this would be an overwhelming project to someone. To me though this thing is a piece of cake. It is so simple and all of the nuts and bolts are all standard. Don't need any fancy tools or computers to work on it. And I have had a lot of fun doing it so far. The only thing that does weigh on my mind and worry me a bit is cost. I will probably have a lot wrapped up in it in the end but I think this tractor is worth it!

On another note I see why the #2 rocker shaft is broken. The #2 cylinder has a big chunk broken and pushed in to the water jacket.
