I already started the repairs on our Farmall Super C. Not sure after that, but probably something Hay equipment related.

And why half-azz the wiring on something like a tractor that is a work machine around your place--your livelihood?

Not trying to be funny--just to understand...(??)

The fenders were off when my uncle bought it and he purchased used one's at a salvage yard. They may have been removed to attach a piece of equipment like a loader. The wiring was also done by some previous owner, but the electrical system still worked. It could have been a field repair and never cleaned up. You never know on these old tractors if the repair's were done out of necessity in the field or mickey moused to just get it running to sell.

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

My Super C does not have any fenders even from factory. I do not need fenders. I do not use the tractor at high speed going through mud holes. I do not do any plowing when it's muddy.

I suspect installing fenders on a Super C would be mainly just for looks, kinda like putting lipstick on a pig.

I'm in the same boat. As I go thru this project I am slowly remembering details and getting clues from cousin who now owns it.

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

I think this is the last detail I needed to finish up. Its the upper link for the 3-point hitch adapter. It was rusted solid, but after roasting it 3 times, hammering it on an anvil, it finally loosened up. I got the threads cleaned up and greased so its working good now. I didn't know if I was going to save this one.

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

Good job.

I've found a torch for heat/cool, and good anvil and lots of patience is your friend when working on old rusty stuff.

The engine sounds real good. Ready to put to work.
