Nice job on that M. I'm looking for an M right now, and am really enjoying the search.

Thanks all for the compliments! It's far from perfect, but I done it all myself, so for that I'm thankful. The ol' tractor was pretty straight to start with, granted alot of the character marks I didn't find till I actaully started doing the body work, but turned out pretty good. Body man I'm not, but being self taught I'm certainly learning alot.

Very nice paint job Dusti, I need to get down your way for a visit sometime soon and see it up close.
Maybe we could get together with Gary once his cub is up and running. :D

Dusti - that one sure brings back some good memories. We had 2 M's on the farm, a 46 and a 50. They were real workhorses.

I've had the joy of seeing that beast in person a few times. Georgous machine.... don't listen to Dusti's modesty too much. It runs and sounds as good as it looks. Now I would just like to see it in action!!! :)

Just thought I'd update this thread with a few pictures from back in the winter. I finally got my original fenders painted & installed, along with the seat reupholstery
from Darrel Darst. I'd still like to add a two-way valve to the ol' gal one of these days and of course she still needs new rear rubber some day...

Nice looking M. I have more time on a 51 M than I care to admit. Dad had one. I can remember having to slide all the way forward on the seat and push as hard as I could to work the clutch. When you say two way valve I assume you mean hydraulics. Dad had a block, which I don't know who made it, which mounted seperatly from the pump which was set to run continously when in use with the oil simply returning to the pump. The block had two levers providing two way hydraulics. Since the regular pump lever was used it was simple to turn on long enough to run the hyd then shut down. Can't remember much about it. There quite a few of these old M's working for a living. Again nice looking tractor. Vern

Edit: This looks like you have added 2 way hyd??
