765 E. Lake Blvd. Winona, Minnesota 55987.

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.
