Finally got number two shined up.

In case you didn't see it "before" here's what it looked like when I pulled it out of the weeds.

Here it is with it's "barn Mate"

With the warm weather we have been having in Georgia lately I've been thinking about gardening.

I think Tezell has beat you too it. He's probably plowed half of Georgia and parts of North Florida by now. :lol:

Thanks for the kind words guys. You are right Stanton it took a little more that shining to get it looking like this. Also it runs good and doesn't have too many strange sounds in the trans and rear end thanks to a arm load of new bearing and seals.
David it took several of months of breaking it apart, sanding and grinding and a gallon of IH red to get that shine. But it's all a labor of love.
Bill I was thinking about Tim when I made that comment about gardening. They really have had some warm weather down south. I was thinking he was probably itching to get something in the ground. It dropped into the 50s last night here in North Georgia coldest it been in over a week. I've got some pepper and flower seed in boxes inside under a light but the only thing I got in the garden is turnip greens and they are looking good.
