Thanks Bob! It needs some work. Things I’ve seen so far...

Exhaust manifold is broken, left axle seal is leaking, right axle seal appears to be joining suit as well, seals at the steering gear box are leaking, a tie rod end has some play, and there is a hesitation/flat spot in the throttle. But overall not too bad.
Oh and the top linkage for the 3 point hitch is missing. Is there a “specific” name for that arm?

What do you mean are the rear tires loaded? Filled with antifreeze?
