Well guys I just finished my 1956 45 combine that was only used for one fall before it was put in a implement shed and started every year until 1963 when it was not started again until I got it started this January. All I had to do was change the points, plugs, wires, coil, rebuilt the carb and she fired right off, separator even works good! I cleaned up the paint with TKO cleaner, compound and wax/polish- no new paint. Figured up it took 283 man hrs to bring it to its current shape. Its got the hume reel, 10' head, bat reel, #10 Corn head (in same shape as combine),scour clean, owners manual, set up book, service manual, and some spare parts. Combine is now at its first show which is kind of cool its the 2013 AG Connect show in KC (this tue, wed, & thu.} and there for the US Custom harvesters 30th anniversary in its Evolution of Harvesting display. I am considering selling this combine to help with a down payment on my first home place farm, but I have no idea what it would be worth. Last pic is my friends that helped me bring the old girl back to life.
