This morning I drove my new Farmall C home it is a 1949 according to the serial number. We mounted the plows this morning so I could see how it was done. It has the radiator shutters. She starts right up and runs good. Uses a little oil, But I imagine I will too when I turn 59. I need to find a short that discharges the battery if it remains connected after shut down and the generator isnâ€™t charging. For now I am just pulling the ground wire off until I get it figured out.
It belonged to a good friend. He used it around the farm to rake hay, run a hammer mill and general utility work. His wife just mowed pasture with it last week. My friend is currently undergoing chemotherapy and his farm will be sold next week. I told him that he can use the tractor anytime he needs to.
I stopped by my momâ€™s house on the way home. She approved. However, she told me it needed a bath. The big surprise will be when my wife comes home after her weekend get away
I bet she finds a new place to hide the checkbook
