Spent part of today fixing some small problems, and swapping the rear blades. Also fixed a couple of hydrolics leaks, and tightend up the friction gasket for the three point control arm...(every time I hit a bump....that arm slide down and the three point let the blade drop.(NOT GOOD, I'm thinkin'!!!!)

New seat will be here Friday, and new Owner' manual here tomorrow!!!

All around Great machine, and I'm glad I bought it!!!!!



Hermie the 2N....goes up for sale this next week!!!! (KINDA SAD to see him leave!!!!)
:(

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

YEH, I know!!! Just so much more to this 3000, than with Hermie.

He has been a really good piece of runner, since I overhauled him....but would never be able to hold a candle to this 3000.

The 3000 FEL makes such a big diff!!!
Still got a lot to learn, but, liking every min. of it.....then add all the other perk's....WOW!!!
:wink:

Good post Hobo.
The parking brake extender is the best deal ever if you're old or fat or both.
Reaching down to your shoe to set the brake was not one of Ford's better Ideas. They changed that in 76 on the 3600s.
And yes, there have been a lot of that era tractor went up in smoke because of a pinched battery cable. I bought the tractor in the photo because of a fire.
I miss the foot throttle on mine.
Had an original Ford one for about 10 years but gave it up for some fancy British made 3000 fenders and step plates to match.
Had run N fenders up until then.

You re going to find all kinds of projects to use that loader on, Gary, if my own experience is any guide.

Selling Hermie down the river? :shock: Why I never! :(

Yep,.....when Royse was here we did the measuring. I also found that the ROP on the 3000, and the width of the tires,....fit through the shop door, with room to spare.

Once I get 'Hermie sold....the 3000 has a bedroom, all to himself!!!

So will that loader fit in the Hermie shed? Having a more weather-tight tractor stall might pay good dividends... :-)
