The Notsogood:

No spark.

Trans had 2 quarts of water and 1/2 quart of mocha colored sludge…

Trans is leaking a bit from the drive pulley shaft.

Front wheels have a wee bit of play in the bearings…

The seat…:hide:

 

Welcome to my world Sylvia......:lol: we have faith in you tho!

That fender looks like it’s in good shape still.

Unfortunately not so much… it’s been repaired several times and has a big chunk missing in back, along a major crack system… :(

 

No worries though… As you may observe if you look at the Noble Black Hood gracing your stables… I’m known for going fenderless on occasion… :scared-eek:

Run a dollar bill through the points a few times to clean the oxide off and see if you get spark. Be careful and not use bigger bills. You might give the horse the impression your a big spender and it will want new parts.

I typically don’t look to see what’s hanging out...

I've seen tractors a lot worse than that with $500++ price tags on them around here. That looks like a good worker to me.

If that's the case, Mike, maybe we should bring some more tractors to the show, if he's got money burning a hole in his pocket.

I luv the black hoodies except for the side view front end. There is just too much overhang in front of the axle so I trimmed it down. Other changes to my personal liking is Krylon Red Cherry paint and the decal colors are reversed.

Nice modification @giddyap, but I think the big honkin’ hood has grown on me a bit over time.

Heads up.. krylon changed the formula on the current production of cherry red. The last 2 cans I bought were much lighter shade.  The part # has changed so if you look close you can tell them apart.  8955 is the old 5511 is the new.

6 months ago when I first started using it, I bought the last two cans with the rotating fan spray found on the premium "Ace Hardware" brands. I searched high and low for that spray nozzle but now it only has the conventional round spray pattern. My guess Krylon could have infringed on someone's property rights? Anyway I used all the same product. Thanks for the info and I hope I added to the story.

Today’s progress…

 

Ordered decal set from @Vinylguyfor the C-85 and my new to me Agrifab but Wheel Horse Wannabee trailer!!!

 

Hood sanded. Ready for primer. Decals came off like a breeze using hair dryer and s l o w l y peeling them off just behind the hot air…

 

Seat down to metal… evaluating possible use as old style metal seat, with some anti-hemorrhoid bolt rearrangement…

 

Possible metal fender pan coming my way from @cafoose via @pullstart Trucking from the Big Show…

Good thinkin’… came off Easy but not in one piece… they were cracked pretty badly so they came off in one piece x about 25… even as a mosaic it woulda been iffy…
