My son is almost 18. When he was younger he like to drive anything I brought home, lawn mower tractor, truck, you name it. He never had an interest in helping me restore a tractor. I did restore a farmall H for him but it took 4 yrs and he let me know how long it took. As with your family funds are tight here too and time is limited. Well after getting his H finished he wanted to sell it for a car. Which I thought was a good idea. We got $2500 for the ole H. My son now loves tinkering with electrical things on his car and knows how to wire things. I would have to say that all of us are going to go where our interests take us! Then when we hit 50 and beyond we say to ourselves why did I get into this...LOL! It doesn't bother me that my son isn't interested in restoring old tractors. I'm proud of the few times he comes and asks me for advice though. They say the hardest part of being a father is when our children don't ask us for advice anymore. Keep the lines of communication open and it doesn't hurt to peek in his room once a week, the daughters' too! Just talking from experience.
