I'm partial to the '56 model as well. You did an excellent job. Grandad would be proud! 8)

Thanks for all of the great comments. It's a tribute to all of you as well. Good catch on the fast hitch. I still have it but it's going back in the barn; I prefer high speed/low drag. It does make it a challenge when I mount the IH belly mower; I have to shim the mount bars to the axle housings. And Dave, if you get a chance to read this, thanks for the encouragement on the clutch swap...piece of cake!

Great story! Surely looks like new with a paint job....
