So just a suggestion here, @Horse Newbie. Maybe that handle should be "@Horse Newbie NOT". Just sayin'

Well I have been wondering if I rated dropping the "Newbie" part from my username, as I have had my 1994 520 H since around Nov. 2017... and made a few repairs and updates as far as upkeep...

but I am so humbled by the knowledge and experience of a lot of the members here that I just don't know...

Compared to you fellows, I'll always be a "Newbie"...and I can't think of a better place to be one...

@Horse Newbie I got a call from Fastenal yesterday that my 953 has arrived. So it took exactly 2 weeks to move through their excess shipping space. You did a great job strapping it to the pallet everything was still nice and secure.  Got it loaded for a trip to the barn  BB2542D7-5271-43D7-A179-70369DF689FE.jpeg.0ee69c0260f36c82797efd5f3631c880.jpeg

I was pleased to find all the goodies in the loose parts that came with it.  Since these are all the transmission external parts I wonder where the transmission went? B012B568-D1C9-46DD-9921-C83E045C5994.jpeg.fa9deb42e5550aa3e0268393d15bb97b.jpeg

More loose goodies that included some rear cultivator parts. Ooo and the actual 953 grill in great shape 🙌

I’ll have to check if the Kohler spec and serial number confirm this is the original engine.

I was also excited to find the Rear tires to be Goodrich Silvertown Ag’s, and they look to be in fairly good shape.  One front tire is an original Wheelhorse tire and my other parts 953 has one original WH tire. 
 If my wife read this she would shake her head about me being excited about original 953 grills, WH tires, that oil bath air cleaner smiling on the front of that Kohler, the HY-2 hydraulics, and Silvertown Ag tires!  But she tolerates my craziness...

It’s now tucked in my dry barn. I got it off the skid and the front wheels back on so I could move it around. 

 

I’ve got to get my Suburban project finished. Then it’s going to be some tough calls to decide how I combine this 953 with my other parts 953. I believe I will have everything I need to build a really good tractor. 
 

Many Thanks Again

@oliver2-44  I believe I am as excited as you are about your 953 arriving to its new home !

It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of you getting the tractor !

When you restore it, or combine it with another 953 to restore, Pu- leeze start a thread on Red Square and for goodness sakes, TAG ME !
