Or at least going to attempt to. It's sat outside in a field for at least the past 10 years (if not more), sadly... At worst, 15 years.third party image Anyway, let me know what you guys think about its condition. The engine is stuck, the rear end leaks oil, the manifold is rusted out, the muffler and the bracket that holds it is shot, the water pump is probably dried out and shot, and the radiator is done for. The sheet metal is rusted, but hopefully salvagable. All the knobs and decals will need redone, but the transmission still shifts nice.

Well, that's just it. I know why my relative left it out, it's because his good tractor goes in the shed and he's an old farmer that just lets stuff sit out when it can't get put in a shed. Pretty stupid, at any rate, but you can't tell 'em anything because they just don't listen. One day all the oil ran out of the back end, and rather than try and fix the thing, he just left it sit. It's been moved around via logchain a bit, but now it's got 10 years of unnecessary rust and weather on it, when it used to be a fine running tractor. Great motor, and all that stuff. Actually, of the three WDs my family had, this one was the nicest. It wasn't as powerful as the other two, as they were later models with three bottom plows and this was a really early model, but it was the easiest shifting of the three.

"but the transmission still shifts nice"

If it is a family tractor, I can understand you wanting to restore it. If it does not mean anything that way, then I would pass on trying to restore it, even for free. There was some reason the tractor was left out to rot and in many cases the transmission is the exact reason. It`s going to cost you a fair penny for motor parts, but when you get that taken care of, chances are you are going to find the transmission is junk. Then the fun begins and the money starts flying out of your wallet. Good luck with whatever you deside.

The one thing you do have going for you is that it is complete. Most you find after sitting are missing parts. Are you sure the engine is stuck? I don't know how long the can has been on the exhuast but it is coverred. I bought an old WC on an auction thinking for sure it was stuck and it wasn't.

After sitting that long, all the gaskets are shot. I'd replace them even if it only sat a year and inside wouldn't make much difference.

How are the rear rims after sitting that long?

Some things need replaced, like the headlights which were shot out... The rear rims are actually in pretty good shape. So are the front ones, as far as I can tell. I assume the engine is stuck because I stuck the crank on it and couldn't make it turn at all with the 200+ pounds of pressure I put on it. It needs new gaskets, rubber, waterpump, radiator, decals, paint, and a lot of tooling. Probably has crud in the gas tank, too.

Hey Will Just my opinion of course but there are too many good WDs out there that can be had for a fraction of the cost of restoring that rusted hulk. Dont't even think about it. Case,Allis, Moline nut

That little building right there between the muffler and the air intake... that is the jewel that needs to be restored! Paint her green with yellow trim, and call her a John Deere two holer.

Actually, she's a one holer, but she don't get much use anymore... The hole underneath it has filled in, and we're not really gung-ho to go dig it back out again.

But I do like your idea. third party image

Will, Use the box at the bottom of the page for the Optional image. I can't tell you how many times I tried before I got it right.

I clicked on Keyword and got them to display there, but there were 3 pictures on each website
with the tractor in the middle. You should use tinypic.com you don't have so much typing to do.

That old WD doesn't look any where near to far gone to fix up. When we got my grand fathers JD-B it looked as bad or worse and today it does look a lot better. It will take a lot of time and TLC but you should be able to fix the old girl back up and have something you can be proud of. I have a D-17 that looks that bad right now but runs very good

I wouldn't even dream of it, but it was a family tractor. The other two WDs we have are in decent running condition... But this one, well, it was left in the pasture for eternity. Why it was never put in a shed (when there was plenty of room) is beyond me, but I feel like it would be a good task for me to try and fix it up to running again.

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
