Re: 1946 B.F. Avery Model A Tractor Restoration

She's finally a runner....and don't worry I'm not going to leave those ugly clamps on the top radiator hose. I've got some wire ones that just need a bit of paint:

Thanks. It took a few days to sort it through, but I'm tickled about it.

Thanks guys.

...well I thought she'd be moving under her own power today...but the machine shop can't seem to get my drive shaft yokes drilled correctly. The closest replacement U-joint that I could find had cups that were about 3 or 4 thousandths too big (hence the machining). I went by to pick them up today...3 were too tight and 1 was too lose. Luckily I had spares. Hopefully by week's end she pulls her own weight.

Since no new pics and just in case all that's missing from your life is a 90% complete tractor not moving but running video, here you go:
