The loader was a bit rusty in some spots, it just washed clean away!
I am really starting to believe this tractor was used by the Ministry of Transportation 'cause it has rust in a lot of places I would not expect it, likely due to all the salt on our highways in the winter.
Add one more thing to the list of things it needs, a radiator. Many of the fins are rotted away, it still has maybe 1/2 of them still in tact. I'm surprised it's not leaking. Once I got is started again after it's shower, oil started dripping almost instantly from around the front spark plug. That's where it looks like it's coming from. It was almost dark so I couldn't get a really good look at it. I'm off work this week so I'll get a look today.
It's not quite as pristine as the pictures make it look but I'm still pretty happy with it.
Say, would you know if I have to take the front end apart to remove the hydraulic pump drive from there? It looks as though I do. Anyone got a lower grille?
I thought about getting a few rattle cans but I think with this one I want to work out all the leaks and any mechanical bugs I find then bring her in the shop over the winter and really go through it, clean and service everything then maybe give her a real paint job. Maybe some new decals too!
