That sounds good! ha It was up to 80 the other day, so we haven't exactly had the full winter experience here... Not sure if it is global warming - or just our normal unpredictable weather. But with
the winter wheat sure needing a drink, send some of that snow our way!

Got any update pics of the M5?

sorry about that morepower Embarassed but sending a snow storm south or east is kind of hit or miss, sv. was saying he needed snow so I sent him the storm that hit us last weekend and he got a good dump, but once it crosses the border it must have hung a left after his place! so it could be sv.'s fault Laughing

draw bar day, pulled out the draw bar, the side brackets that hold the swing plate and sent the side brackets with my buddy to build me new ones, (he has a 50 ton press) and straighten the draw bar plate that has the roller on it to swing side to side. I built new c plate for up in the end draw bar holder, and new draw bar pin, cut and welded plates on the end of the draw bar to bring it back up to level, was worn down into the draw bar about a 1/4" on each side from implements and the first owner flipping it upside down! some pics of todays work.

ok as per fdt860's suggestion, I will put all pics and progress under this post. so here go's. first lets back up to the beginning, the first day I saw the m5, getting her up and running, and the trip home.

Harold had pulled it out of the poplar trees along his fence row the evening before, my first impression was wow it's a nice straight tractor, loved the style, 2nd impression hhmmm needs some tlc, I wonder if it'll run?

went out the next week with a gallon of atf, pulled the plugs and poured a quart into each cylinder. looked the tractor over and made a list of items i'd need to get her running?? 4 weeks later went back and got started, pulled the roof and panels off blew out 20 years worth of poplar leafs, twigs, nests, cobwebs and fuzz! changed out the plugs, plug wires, most of the wiring harness,(rotten and dozs of splices) new choke cable, new battery, new fuel line and filter. Harold took the carb into work and rebuilt it, poured in 10 gallons of premium fuel with a little 2 cycle oil in it. Harold climbed up on the seat hit the starter and she was running on the 1st revolution!!

Harold had to cut it out of the trees Laughing


first time she rolled under her own power in 20 years, Harold at the wheel



I just had to take her for a spin Very Happy

loading up to go to her new home! the trip home was a little slow with all the weight on the back the trailer wanted to fishtail so kept it down below 50 mph.

got the m5 home, ran it around a bit to warm it up, drove it in the shop and pulled the drain plug on the oil pan and went to bed! that was a long day. next day finished the oil change,new oil filter, cleaned and changed oil in the air cleaner, greased and went out the back and hooked up the j.d. 336 baler and brought it up to get ready for the 2nd. hay cutting.

after getting miss mine and the baler ready we went to work! baled a 155 bales in 45 minutes, the m5 is one smooth baling tractor and a pleasure to drive, the live pto, amplitorque tranny and torque to no end make baling a breeze.



during this time I get started on the restoration part, went out to westlock tractor parts (made a few trips) picked up 4 used 18.4 x34 firestone tires in nice shape and 1 front steering tire in nice shape. the rims where the start of this restoration
