Thanks to everyone for all your complimentery comments!  I will take a couple of more pictures this weekend and post them. I have a few from during the build I put up now, one of the engine when I pulled it out and two of the broken cast iron steering support. I was going to weld the old one, even though I hate to weld cast. So, instead I decided to weld up a new one out of steel The rear tires are NanKangs.

Looks like the old Ford 861 Powermaster that I learned to drive a tractor with.

 

Loved that old tractor, wish I had bought it when I had the chance.

 

This is a pic from the internet but ours looked similar.

I really like the aggressive look of those 6-12s... what are they?  Tru-Powers?

 

 

I second the tires, they sure do look like they're ready for work!

 

Great job on the project, I like most everyone else would love to see more pictures of the project!

They were great tractors. Replacing the clutch was always a challenge to say the least. I had a Golden Jubilee with a FEL I miss the old girl.

The one I drove was owned by my grandfather and I believe it was a 1959.

 

Apparently the clutch went out on it a couple of times but never when I remember.

 

By that time we had bigger diesel tractors to do the heavy work.

 

You could pin the clutch pedal in two positions depending on whether you planned on using the PTO or not.

 

Gear shift was a weird one that slid up and down then front to back to select gears.

 

Ours had a loader as well but I only actually seen it on once as steering was a bear with it on.

 

However, the mounting frame stayed on and it had round loops on both sides with a support bar running over the top of the dash.

 

Lever to raise and lower was on the top of the transmission and it simply had a trip lever for the bucket.

Yeah,  nice job on that support,  getting the angle correct isn't easy.

 

Just a heads up  - when you start a thread, give it a title to describe what you're doing or have a question about. This makes the site run more smoothly and helps when using the search engine results for research or answers to a specific topic. Just a simple title is all that's needed,  otherwise subjects with only a username become too confusing to get answers or comments.

Tom, welcome to Red Square.  :handgestures-thumbupright:  I took the liberty of merging your 2 topics because it is a subject still in process.  I also changed the title a little so as to give the members an idea of what they were looking at when they opened your thread.  Your name shows up under the title and choosing a title that explains what the thread is about helps the other members when looking for your topics.  If you would like to change the topic title to something else...please let me know what you would like to change it to and I can do that for you.  Thank you 

   BTW...that is a very nice job you did on the 701.  :occasion-xmas:

Looks very good. Looks like you're getting hammered with snow today, only 2" in Vineland. What shows do you plan on taking it to?

      Looking for the large drive-belt guard, part #4202 off of a 502, 552, 701, or 702. Doesn’t need to be pretty, just straight.

      Hello,
       
      I am gathering parts to restore a 701 i acquired. Wondering if anyone out there has a decent hood or the double starter pulley they could spare?  Trying to save this horse.

      Picked this up yesterday after a long days ride.  I'm  going to need to see Terry for the correct stickers though.  Left the house at 6:00am and returned at 11:45pm,  almost an 18 hour ride.  I think it was worth it though.  Looks to be all original except the stickers and the front tires.  You don't find these to often and almost never with an unbroken dash plate that's original.  She runs great, but I'm finding it hard to get my motor running this morning after that trip.
