Welcome to the forum and that tractor appears to be in really nice shape.
I work for an OEM automotive manufacturer (One of the original BIG 3). I write removal & installation and dissassembly & assembly of seats.I noticed you said (I'm a technical author and I write factory repair/service manuals for a living.)
Could that mean you may be able to help members with locating manuals?
Ya, I'm sure I will be blowing/plowing snow for the whole block and tilling gardens at my house, parents house and inlaws house.Welcome and congratulations! That's a beautiful machine. If you don't know what to do with it at home, you can always make a few extra bucks on the weekend with it!
