I love that there's a community somewhere who will stand around and watch a team of guys rebuild a tractor.

re: the welsh farmers... I bet it would work a whole lot better in reverse.

What made you change your mind? In the ATV thread when I brought up using a tractor instead of an ATV you had no interest and said you sold a tractor.

Congrats on a nice looking rig. Tractors hold their value well, too, and a clean one can be re-sold quickly to a perceptive buyer. Parts are cheap, as you said - I think oil pan gaskets were under $5 for mine.

I have a '58 Massey Ferguson and the floating blade system of the Ferguson design results in smooth road grading. My Farmall Super A (while a great tractor) left the road looking all hacked up.

Safety note - these things can kill you. I have read of several cases where the rear tires were frozen into the ground (during winter - tractor left outside) and the driver popped the clutch in 1st and drove the tractor around and on top of himself. The proper approach if the wheels are frozen is to try to free the tractor using reverse gear only. In addition, I always leave my back-blade attached, to act as a wheelie-bar for my tractor - that can help save your bacon.

Enjoy!

Nice Bill. My dad has a 1957 Massey Ferguson high 40 (still running that bear cat BTW) that was his grandfather's and then father's. Even though it's a 4 cyl I have seen first hand what Steve mentions about it lifting the front end off the ground. Luckily my dad got on the clutch fast enough and there was no damage
