After 4 Ĺ years I finally finished my 71 2520. I have done a complete out of frame engine overhaul with new injectors and rebuilt injection pump. Both clutches were rebuilt. The hydraulics were rebuilt including the front pump with new rear pump, along with resealing the steering motor and rebuilding the steering valve, SCV and rockshaft. The wiring had to be completely replaced as there was nothing worth salvaging. The front end and seat were completely rebuilt. Those were just the big ticket items with countless smaller items done as well. I have kept a folder with all the receipts but I donít think I will ever add them up as I donít want to really know and that includes buying a parts 2510 tractor. I learned a ton of things and much of it came from great people on this site.

That is one sharp looking tractor.My dad bought a new 2520 narrow front in 1972 for $6700 it was discounted because the 30 series were out.Your paint job shines better that dad's new one.I have a 2510 diesel that I use on the farm.

That is a great job. It is to good to get into the mud. I wished many times I had one of these as I had 3020,4020 and 4320. All I can do is look back but you made my day.

WOW. That is gorgeous! As is the 2510 below.
I'm curious about the front weights I frequently see on these tractors. Are you planning on some serious 3 point work? I pull a six row planter with my 2520, with no ballast. It's light in the front, but that's just the way I want it.
