I should have taken some before pictures of the pump to show ya'll how much grunge there was in it. So, imagine 60 years of dirt, old watery oil, and rust chunks laying in there. Here are pics of it all cleaned up. I painted the cover with the aluminum paint mentioned in the previous post to see how it looked. What do ya'll think? Please don't go hating on me because I'm not going to paint the tractor as original. All that gray is just too drab for me. I know the gray is low-maintenance, but I'm going to add some colors to mine.




OK, now it's confession time. :oops: When I first got the tractor, I went to a web site that had the serial number info to find out when it was built. I read the information incorrectly, and I've thought for almost 2 years that this was a '49.

Got to looking around and found out that I read the wrong column in the chart, and I really have a '51 Fergie. :? I ain't too smart sometimes.


Just in case you're wondering who the heck you're dealing with here, my wife says I need to put a pic of myself on this thread. I'm doing an experiment where I decided to let my beard grow without trimming for six months. I'm into month #4 now and gettin' kinda shaggy. I'll be more presentable on April Fool's day when I shave it off. :P Anyhow, here's me and my Mountain Feist, Sophie. She keeps the squirrels in the trees and the rats out of the shop.


I hope you're enjoying the thread as much as I'm enjoying typing it up for ya'.
