Here a few pictures of the plow day we went to last month. It was a good 130 mile drive so we had to leave early. Had planned to leave around 6:30 am but that didn't last long. Due to it being the first time to load both on the trailer I didn't get them loaded correctly the night before. Ended up we were going to take just 1 of them. But I sure didn't like that so after laying awake half the night I decided I had put too much work in these tractors to just take 1. I wanted to try both of them out on a plow. So I was up and in the barn at 5 am to fix some stuff to be able to load and haul them both safely. We ended up leaving around 7:30 am with both safely loaded.
Hope y'all don't mind the wrong color tractors. Second tractor is me on the '49 M.
1949 Farmall. This is the one we rolled new bearings in and has new rings. We bought it as a parts tractor since the motor was locked up. Turned out I was able to turn it over a little with a pipe wrench. Opened it up and found a bad bearing. Easy fix.
1947 Farmall. This one had lots of parts missing, bad rear rims and all tires were bad. When we got it running we found out the transmission had problems. Lots of bearings out and 5th gear wouldn't hold. I almost gave up on this one.
All loaded up and ready to go back home.
We had fun and both tractors ran good.
