    Hello! I'm new but I figured I would just start talking to everyone since that's what I do best.
    Anyway, I have a hobby. Well, me and my dad. We restore old tractors and stationary engines.

    Those are some really neat tractors. My oldest brother who lives in Brookville Ind has restored an Allis C and it has a belly mower. My Dad and I restored a 1950 Henry Ferguson tractor. It had been run without oil and then left in an old barn for several years before we acquired it. Needless to say the motor was locked up. We got it going finally and a few years later replaced the rings in the motor. Now it runs great and I use it to mow, scrape snow, pull small tree stumps out and pull my manure spreader. Only wish it had power steering LOL ! Kinda hard on my old shoulders and elbows when I'm bushhogging the pastures nowadays. I'll post some pics of the Ferguson soon. At work at the moment and have no access to my pics :( Thanks for sharing your photos
