Damn. I was thinking you bought it for less than $10k for some reason.
Win some lose some. I was thinking it was a $15,000+ tractor. Now I know what everyone wants. Late model years, side console, etc.

Ours is a 67 with the dash hydraulic controls. I don't think you could give my dad a side mount if you tried. Haha. But yeah, I see what you mean.

I personally dont care too much either way where the console location is. But if I’m grabbing one for resale it definitely matters. Also having an original engine, not a combine engine and taco tach.

For a toy, I’ll definitely find a turbo unit. Be able to go have some fun at the local pulls would be a bonus.

Dad really likes the dash mount because you can shift gears while raising and lowering the bucket. He hauls a lot of manure with it, so being able to drive forward and scoop, stop, raise the bucket, and switch to reverse at the same time helps things go a little faster.

With a loader i could see that being way better. Only 4020 I’ve ran with a loader had a joystick and an aux pump. It was a newer Westendorf unit. I liked it.

C7 ACERT With Allisons I think. PTO as best I can tell. I tried to start one or two of them the last time I was there, but they were all dead.
I’m blind, fucking Cat C7’s and the Allison would bring some dough but I bet would suck to pull. Those axles are probably good for some cash too. They put that shit in so many trucks, fucking adelmans (sp) might give you cash for them.

Agree that there’s money in them just in driveline. I have nowhere to even attempt to pull a job like that off.

Garbage trucks went for $1,400 a piece. There’s a dozen more yet to come just the same if I can figure out the logistics of where to dismantle them.

Also don’t think I mentioned it as it happened on my way home from getting my COVID test so I just parked it, but I found the culprit of the brake failure on my Yukon. The braided line off the master to the distribution block blew.

First issue the truck has given me. All of the other lines were done before I got it. Should be back on the road by the weekend. 306,000 and still going strong lol.

Though the GF and my parents are starting to really give me shit about that truck. Like I’m a loser for driving it.

IDK, does this thing really look that unpresentable??? Interior is still more than sanitary for a 300,000 mile truck... I love it. It’s quiet, comfy, BOSE stereo, still gets 16-18mpg... Not to sound like a cock, but it’s not like I can’t replace it with just about anything I want, I just don’t want to...

Drivers side is the worst. Passenger rockers are the same, but there’s no rust on the dogleg or wheelwell.

That’s pretty much been my plan. To drive it until it has a major failure, like a frame crack due to rust or something. I’d probably put a trans in it if it was needed if it continues to run as good as it does. Idk, maybe I’ll put OE flares and those $130 black plastic rocker covers on it to shut them up lol.

My father seems to be the one that cares the most. Like I have no pride in myself or something lmao.

Tell him you're trying to be environmentally friendly by keeping an older vehicle on the road...
Because anything newer is likely to have 80% of it 90% worn out at a hundred and twenty thousand miles. They just don't build them like they used to

As long as it doesn't have half a dozen exhaust ticks like they all do in that shape you're good to go

I do too. It has one starting to develop so it’ll be getting manifolds in the spring.

Got all of the decals removed from the ranger today. Man that’s one of those jobs that you feel physical anxiety to finish once you start. I do it all with a 3M pinstripe wheel, I’ve yet to have luck with these reflective stripes with heat or cold peeling without leaving adhesive residue that takes forever to clean up.

FINALLY started on the wide front swap on my H. It’s going to end up being a pretty awesome tractor for what it is when it’s done. The parts that I’ve accumulated off of others and put onto a single unit far exceed what these are worth.

The 310 Case got to save the day once again on loader duty. The H I’m assembling and the Case will be two with me for a long time. Dare I say ever for the Case, if I found a perfect Super H I would upgrade.

Case looks stupid without any of the paneling on. I’ve been doing all the fluids, adjusting clutch, fixing any leaks I find on it, etc. Can’t wait to button that one up and have it be 100%
