I bought this tractor from Clarence Young of Great Falls, Montana. The tractor was taken apart to the last nut and bolt and rebuilt from the ground up. It had not been run for the last fifty years.

It sure was a basket case. We had to sleeve the block, grind crank, rebabbitt all the bearings, make new valve guides and valves, and purchase a new radiator and fenders. The belt pulley was also gone and we had to make a new one. All the bearings were replaced in the transmission.

We've had it to three shows, where it certainly got a lot of attention. It sure looks good and runs fine. It put out 65 HP on the dyno.
