    Nice little tractor. Except for the grill, it looks just like my brother's 140.

    That's amazing. I had a 1941 Farmall A and the front wheel castings are exactly the same as is the steering box. Yours is 16 years newer.

    Too add to your private mail.. My 46 2n was more of a weld / braze candidate.

    Every bolt I could get at on that tractor had the nut
    welded on..!?!?! And just about everywhere else was brazed

    I think I was told that this same model ran basically unchanged up into the late 60's...

    A few new stickers and a shift knob and she'll be all ready for 'work'!

    I'm only just now becoming 'satisfied' with my welding skills. Thru hours of practice.. i can finally weld halfway decently on my small buzzbox. I have made a few larger projects.. like a heavy middle ramp for my trailer out of 1/2 inch material at work on out big lincold 225a BB.. ( nice welder ).. couse I got to play with all the nice stuff then too.. like the plasma cutter ( neato! ).. and the wire welder.. 200ish amps... ( neato!) again. I've never wire welded but once.. and was very easy.. lots easier than stick.. though surface prep seemed to make a big difference on the wire welder. I will say one thing about the lincoln though.. when you turn it up.. it will really glue some metal together. On that rusty 1/2 inch flad stock I thought I might have penetration problems.. Uh.. not! I think If I would have had chamfering rods I could have severed easilly..

    Unfortunately it was the previous owner that liked the sparks and fumes. Instead of replacing about 6 bucks worth of bulk bolts and nuts.. he would just weld the bolt or nut on.. even if it was half way rusted off.

    I used a nut splitter, chissle, angle dringer, etc to remove lotsa nuts and bolts.. had to drill some out...

    Of those repairs i wasn't too happy.

    However he did make a few good braze repairs on the tin that were so good I didn't notice till I took the paint down.. as well as a welded oil pan.. no biggie.. it doesn't leak, and he did that repair about 20 years ago.. etc.
