Spent the last year taking this little tractor down to every last nut and bolt. Everything rebuilt including the power steering, engine, Live PTO Transmission, Remote Hydraulics, three point, etc. Sure like the looks of the finished product, its officialy become one of my favorites. Next project (JD 40V) is already in the shop to be worked on this winter.

Looks fantastic! Turf tires and wheel weights seems like an odd combination.

Nice job. I have 2 of them that look just a little better than your before pictures. Hope to get them looking like your finished one someday.

Really Nice!!
I especially like those utility models and the power steering.
The only other thing it needs is me sitting on it!!

Looks excellent. It even has an SCV and neither the fenders or pto shield is missing.

The tractor was originally used in a citrus orchard in Florida (probably where the turf tires come in); They had no water or fluid in them at the time of removal. Weights looked like they had been there from day one; thinking it was probably ordered that way.

very nice restoration, just wondering are the back tires firestone or another make, they look great and was wondering the brand and if still available, I could use a pair or two.

Rear Tires are Firestone 13.6 X 26" Field and Roads. Dont think they make them anymore. . . have had these waiting for this tractor for a couple years. Wish I could still find these Firestones, Im not a big fan on the newer styles that are out there.

Very, very nice job. I don't want to know how much money you spent.
New news from the Two Cylinder Club this month. An award will be given by the normal judges AND people visiting the show also get to pick the best restoration. In the past half or more of the same tractors have been there every year. Time for some new bood (iron?).
Yours looks like a good candidate.

Do you restore to keep as your prized posessions or are you selling ?
