You can get a lot of clues from a picture.
This style bolster and axle tells you something.
Then it's a gasser with early block, has manual steering box and side arm PS.
Note the extra lugs bottom/middle of the transmission, twin hyd lift handles, newer flow control, one tire in the background and something red, IPTO handle.
I painted Ken's tractor today.
It's getting to the end of the year for that here.
Ran out of Old 55 paint from Fleet Farm about 3/4 through the job. Mixed a whole nother quart of CNH stuff and shot that over everything. We always use hardener. High of only 63° today.
Maybe it'll stick. Maybe not.
At least there's plenty of it.
Ken is great at mixing. I nearly had to force him to use lacquer thinner in enamel. Now he likes it, especially on a cool day.
Sold the nose off a 3000 to a guy while I was there. He T boned a lady in her car with his 3000. Her fault. He was happy to find a decent old style nose at a fair price.
He wasn't certain which of us was the biggest thief but I'm sure he'd buy from us again.
It was a fun afternoon with Kenny and Fords and I came home richer than when I left.
