I'm sure I'll have some questions, and you pros will have some answers. I don't plan it to be restored to original. I do have the deck for it also. Or at least a deck was there with it.

Here's what I've done so far. Rear axle/trans is setting outside, upside down draining water out. It's not seized ip, but full of water. I'll probably need to take it apart and check it out.

Frame is painted, hopefully tomorrow I can get some more done. Today was all about my daughter's track meet. Then I entered a chili cook off. So I had no time for tractors today.

I took the differential apart today, wow was it nasty in there. The Gears were in great shape, bearings still greasy but it had some sludge in there. Cleaned it all up and sealed it up. Sprayed some paint on it and bolted it back to the frame.

I have decided that I don't like the looks of the stock fender/seat set up on this tractor. I would like to run a setup like the suburban or rj tractors. Even fenderless, I want to put the taller narrow wheels and tires on it. What size tires? Any recommendations on seat setup, or should I custom build something?
