Just a tangential note. My education & my training is as an historian. There is one other unappreciated unnoted quality of those unrestored tractors (or any old long used piece of equipment). They are documents of history. Purchased new, with or without the bells and whistles from the manufacturer, they were a vital tool. To improve, prolong, or adapt modification were made. Each of those changes documents a trend an event in the history of US ag - something that is inadequately studied at this time. I am always aware of that this is something ignored by most folks, but of which I am always mindful. I was turned on to the profession by the accessory belt for an early tractor/traction machine back in 1972 at the age of 13. I found it in a farmer for whom I babysat during harvest when I was scrounging for stuff to use in a mock archeological dig. A 20-some foot loop of heavy leather in still excellent condition that no one could tell me for what it was used. (No one was really collecting the old machinery back then. Then again, machinery that was new then is antique now.) It bothered me that I couldn't ID that leather belt - it was so big how could anyone forget its purpose! By the end of the 70s the interest in the old machines was coming along, and just about the time I graduated college with my brand new BA in History, I saw my first steam traction engine operating a saw mill. The first words I uttered on seeing that display at the county fair - THE BELT! The lovely old gentlemen who had put that engine back into working order were happy to tell a curious young woman about the uses of the belt and the equipment that could be operated by it using the power of the traction engine - also a bit bewildered, but happy to satisfy my curiosity. This is all by way of making a request. If you restore, take pictures of what you start with and what you do. Future hisotorians will thank you. Also, save your data.
