I need my head examined

Postby Rick Prentice » Thu Jan 26, 2006 6:40 pm

:D Don't ask me why I bought it, but it was in good shape and the price was right. I figured it would be some swapping material for the '47 I'm looking for. The engine is fresh, but the carb has some temporary ailments. I found a tube laying in the bottom of the bowl, a shrunk gasket, and a half full float. Other than that, it seems nice. Here's a pic, Rick

For its age she's pretty good, if she's a sweet runner she's worth gold.

Nice one Rick. Now don't get any ideas about putting one of your cub's on steel untill you take the Farmall out for a cruise. :lol: I'm currently restoring an H that will get a full set of steel.
