Not a bad thing. I just hoped they changed the head gasket. They are different, waterpump vs. thermosiphon.

The C works fine it always has. My Late Father compleatly rebuilt it in the early 1980's.

You using spray cans?

Yes and no. I used the air prayer once and got the white wall a nice shad of IH Red. and then had to power wash that wall. so then it was spray cans, well then I got a can of IH red so I rolled some of it and brushed a few areas too. then touch it up with the spray can. I think it's coming out nice.
I'll be uploading some video of the Tractor soon.

It sure is great to hear them talk back to you.
I used it yesterday too. I pulled out my stuck in the mud 10-A disk Harrow, I couldn't move it with the Cub. I have a super C carb. on it this time, and a temp. Cub Cadet 12HP gas tank.
There will be more video up loaded soon.

What are you using to edit your video. Pretty nice software. I like the fade in/out of the tractor in the scene.

Hi all,
I took some more video of me driving the C. but this time it's at night to show I have working lights on it, something the tractor hasen;t had in over 40 years. for my Dad never put lights on the tractor, when He restored it back in the 1980's. I fixed the gas tank too. so I have that on now and not the Cub Cadet tank. It's almost done just a few more things to do. I'm hoping to be able to bring it up to Rough & Tumble for IH Weekend, on the 23,24 of this month.

Take care all,
Len.
