:D Agreed. This will not be the first ruff tractor I have saved from the junkman and brought it back to life. Water ran out of the cylinders when I pulled the plugs out of of my 1939 A 25 or so years ago and it was missing a pile of parts. It looks and runs like new now. Also, my 37 BO was in tough shape. One cylinder had to be bored and sleeved. I think that may be why he told me to come and get it. I have a good track record of getting the real ugly ones back in A#1 shape. I found out more interesting info yesterday. The tractor was puchased new at Burtnett Implement who was located in Hudson NY, and also in Chatham NY at the time. The purchaser was Helen Highland who's farm is a stones throw from where I now live so you might just as well say that the tractor is comming home. Richie, who is in his eightys, drove the tractor when it was new as they were neighboring farmers. He bought the tractor when Helen Highland's farm was sold back in the late 50's or 60's. He ran it on his wifes family farm for a number of years and parked it when a tire and rim needed replacing. He removed the wheel and it is still sitting on the ground waiting. The tractor has sat for 35 or 40 years that I know of waiting to be repaired. The poor old A has really gone backward in that time. I can't wait to see what the cylinders look like when I pull the head. Hopefully they wont be too bad.
