Tractor Details:
My 1945 Farmall B restoration was an extensive rebuild process due to sitting exposed in the elements in a partial disassembled state. There was not a piece of this tractor left untouched. The rebuild started by evaluating all components and making a parts and task list. The entire tractor was disassembled down to bare cases and rebuilt using as many original parts as possible. The restoration was possible due to online resources and factory shop manuals. Many specialty tools were used to reassemble the final drive and transmission as to check end play and gear mesh patterns and backlash. The engine also was completely rebuilt. As you follow my detailed build in the workbook and video, you will see the meticulous work that went into this project. I learned a lot and found a huge sense of accomplishment. A truly rewarding experience.
