this little tractor came home with me yesterday. it is a 1959 one owner tractor that has 3600 hours on the original working hour meter. the only problems I've found so far is the lever for the remote valve is froze, the gen doesn't charge and a couple oil leaks. I'm sure there will be more as i dig into it. chuck

Chuck, don't sweat the mechanical stuff, your tractor looks really straight. The typical wear points on the frame, steering, draw bar, lift hitch and floor boards tell me that the 3600 hours on the tac is pretty accurate. If I would critique the tractor, I would upgrade the exhaust to spec asap. I believe the exhaust had a 60 degree bend to act as a rain cap and finially that corosion on the front wheel tire stem hole needs immediate attention. Other than that, I think after it is steamed and detailed, I would have a rought time justifying any re-paints. Nice looking tractor, it has a good home.
