Deere 332's 1957 Farmall 130 Restoration!

Well guys I started another a previous thread and its topic was me potentially getting my great grandparents 1957 Farmall 130 well fast froward to now it's 100% mine the best I can tell so I figured I'd start the restoration thread.
Now this isn't going to happen overnight there are a lot of expensive things it need's that are a little more than my teenage wallet can handle at the moment so where just going to start with the basic's and here's a list of what it needs and a list of what I'm going to try and tackle in the next few months.

Everything I know it needs currently

#1 Paint and Body work and lots of it especially on the front.
#2 Tires all the way around.
#3 Seat mines got drain holes in it that aren't factory plus the cushion/ cover is shot.
#4 Touch control hydraulic box needs rebuilding.
#5 Brakes right hand side brakes are shot they scream like a banshee when I use that brake.
#6 Fix oil/hydraulic leaks.
#7 Replace bearing's and seal's/rebuild left and right side axle portal box's they have a little wobble in them.
#8 Wiring Harness the original one is shot stupid mice plus lots of hacked up sketchy looking wire's.
#9 New grill my original is smashed.
#10 New lights my current ones are garbage plus they're 6 volt and my tractor was converted to 12 volt.
#11 New Muffler/ Straight Pipe

Things that I can do at the moment.

#1 Wash and wax the tractor.
#2 New Muffler/ Straight Pipe
#3 Seat.
#4 Brakes.
#5 Maybe lights.
#6 Wiring Harness.
#7 Fix some oil leak's.

Here are some picture's!

That is a great video. That 130 sounds real good. You are young and time is on your side with the restoration. Slow and steady will get it done.

You seem wiser than your years and have proven very capable in your posts. You can see that you already love this tractor. The 130 has a bright future.

I"m tagging along for the resto ride.

Thank You it means a lot! This was the first "Farm Tractor" I ever drove by myself.
My hope is to get the tractor done before I'm through with high school in a few years other wise it won't get done for a long time due to college and the last thing I need is a half disassembled farm tractor laying around my shop for the next 10 years so time is and isn't on my side.

The main thing will be coming up with the money as everything is way more expensive than garden tractors are, tires are going to be like $700+, paint I estimate around $500-600 and fixing all the other stuff is probably going to run me some where north of $1,600, and of course a ton of labor from myself and my family at least I didn't have to pay for the tractor that defiantly helps.

It may be a few months before I can start on it though as I have plenty of other projects/ expenses that need to be dealt with before I get too this tractor but I'm hoping to get it cleaned up a little for a tractor show in early March and I plan on taking most of my herd to it sure will be fun to clean 15 years worth of dirt and grease and mice nests of off it did I mention I hate mice.

Congratulations. You have a runner and it sounds good in the video. Take your time. Its been in your family a long time. Maybe someday you will be able to pass it along to one of your grandkids. Start with routine maintenance stuff and a good cleaning. Prioritize your list. You're going to need a new sweatshirt on your birthday/Christmas list.

Thanks! Yeah we've already changed the oil and air filter coolant is probably next aside from cleaning because thats going to take a lot of work Im eager to see how it'll look without all that dirt and grease on it and maybe put a coat of wax on it and see how it looks besides the front end being beat up.

The funny thing is the tractor didn't run and I know exactly why and it was my own fault because before we brought it home I was the last one to run it and that was probably 2-3 years ago and I more than likely left the switch on therefore killing the already shot battery and frying the points which we had to file.

As far as a sweatshirt I doubt it maybe just a hat so when I'm at show's I can have my John Deere sweatshirt on and my IH hat plus the hat is easy to take on and off vs the sweatshirt so it would make it easy if I'm switching between my Farmall or any of my Deere's.

But then again its funny to watch the IH guys give me grief for waring John Deere clothes on a IH tractor. The other thing is this tractor has always sat a lot and I'm usually at least in the last 7 years the main person to run it and out of every one including my great grandparents I probably have the most hours on this tractor out of anybody in my family.

Re: Deere 332's 1957 Farmall 130 Restoration!

It's good to see you got it home and running. I'm sure you'll enjoy restoring it, and have a lot more appreciation for it, being it belonged to your great grandparents. If you take care of it, it should last you the rest of your life.

They are fairly easy to work on. Built in an era, when they had things like that in mind, not buried under a lot of gingerbread, yet, had style and purpose.

I've attached a link to the Case/IH online parts store, for the 130. Broken down in segments of the tractor, and complete exploded views of each component. Along with that, the part numbers, and description. Whether you decide to go with OEM parts, or aftermarket, you can either select a dealer in your area, and it will give you the price of parts. And, that price should be good at any IH dealer. Or, copy and paste the part number to a good search engine, to look for aftermarket parts. Or, if for some reason you may need a housing, etc. you can use the part number to search salvage yards too. I've also attached a link to TractorHouse, in case you would need something in that line. Open the link, then scroll down to the 3rd box, and click on "dismantled machines".

Have fun with it. We'll be tagging along following your progress..!!

Man and I thought my granddad was strict about restored machines he won't even hardly let me drive his restored 212 off the pavement in the grass let alone do any work with it. Im completely different about my machines yea I keep them looking really nice but I also try to use them and enjoy them because what good is it just sitting in the shop to come out one or twice a year for shows and not be driven hardly at all. I defiantly plan on driving the Farmall maybe even take it to a few plow days since I got a double bottom plow with it. I've also heard that these 130's are kind of rare compared to Super A's or 140's I think they only made like 9,000 something 130's. Should be a fun parade tractor too but tell you what it hauls butt in 4th gear scared my uncle to death when I took off in fourth gear and went flying past.

True but don't forget the patios they're where red ones and actually any Deere can be red all it takes is a red spray bomb.

Yeah and a 50% or more reduction in price in order to pay for stripping all that back off.
