Next Project

Post by Mark Merritt » Sun Oct 07, 2018 4:52 pm

Next up is my 1955 Ferguson TO 35. Rebuilt the motor and put in A clutch about 10 yrs. ago but always thought it could stand A paint job and spruce up. Very good sheet metal and all original, it deserves it. It will keep me busy this winter out in the garage. I will post some pics from time to time. Anyone ever done A tractor ? Mark

OMG, that's so cool, Mark! How do you put 37K miles on a tractor?!? That's a lot of furrows...

Dan: On the "tractometer" tach. those are hours the engine has ran. It is used for maint. schedule. It is low low it's age. Engine rebuild can happen at around 5,000 hours, I heard of one that got 9,000 hrs before A rebuild. It depends how it is taken care of.I've had this one about 10 years I bought it from A fellow up the road. It was bought new by A fellow that only lived about A half mile from me. He bought 2 of them identical to do his grape farm,I heard the other caught fire or was in A fire shortly after it was purchased, so it has always been around the neighborhood now it is mine. Mark
