"New" tractor
« on: August 07, 2019, 09:20:28 PM »
Older than I am, but new to me. Approximately 1960 vintage International 40HP.

No front end loader or 4WD and its not diesel, but it will drag my road, drag trees, and plow my field in the interim, and it was such a deal I couldn't pass it up. Enough so I'll probably make money on it.

When I took back the guy's trailer, he handed me the manual and a manilla envelope stuffed with receipts and service records including a total restoration to like new in 2002, and it's been kept indoors since.

Everything it needs is exactly what you'd expect of a 17 year old tractor - carb and ignition stuff, really.
