I wish I would have taken some before pictures, but here it is about 95% of where I want it. I have a Kelley loader that came with it, that I want to refinish and mount. I also have a live hydraulic pump and a reservoir I made that fits in place of the belly pump that I still need to install and plumb.
The tractor was fairly rough when I got it, I went through and did a full rebuild. I was mainly making it presentable and functional. I have been this far done with it for just over a year. Other projects; a 48' cub and a 57' 450 are currently taking all my attention :D . I want to get a matching tire for the rear of it, but just hate to spend a bunch of money when the ones on it work and it's not a show tractor or anything.

Thanks!
I started just fixing the engine, and ended up doing a full overhaul and getting a 350 head and cam as well as gear to prepare it for the live pump.
I stripped it all to bare metal and painted it. The sheet metal is cleared with urethane clear and makes me wish I would have cleared the whole tractor. The cleared part is so much deeper and shinier.
I was going to upgrade to the Super H-350 manifold and carb, but decided I had already spent enough on it to just use it around the garden and property.
The bad part is now I don't want to scratch it.
