i bought this 1961 701 in fall of 2018 and restored it. I completed it in fall of 2019 and I wanted to show some pictures of before during and after I got it done. I did my research and tried to make this tractor as close to original as possible. The few exceptions are tires, wiring and the steering support. Not a perfect tractor but sure is nice enough for me.

Added the first replica HL-5 today on the 653, the first of a couple of dozen in the works. They are not connected yet, working on a bracket for switch.
anybody here have a original wheel horse cyclopse light on any of your tractors ?
got pics ?.
Found these cheap lights on ebay that are virtually identical to the originals (except for quality of course) and less than $20.00 later including 1/2 rod here we have lights for another tractor.
I came across what I believe to be 60s headlights that were attached to the hood of a 1960 Suburban. The seller would not sell me the headlights separately so I bought the Suburban. The only identification on them is stencilled on the back. One headlight reads "PMCo 401" and the other reads "PMCo 402".
Can anyone shed some light on my purchase?
