To begin restoring this tractor I pressure washed the tractor and prepared a clean/organized working area to start the tear down process. The tractor was then test driven to determine and analyze the condition of the tractor mechanically. The tractor was in poor shape. During the tear down process It's extremely important to keep all parts cleaned and organized. Therefore, when its time to actually work and restore the parts, you can find them easily. It also makes reassembling the tractor run smoothly. During the rebuilding stage it was very important for me to take my time and refer to the parts and maintenance manual for precision performance. Once each part was rebuilt, it was installed on the tractor carefully and by the book. After there was enough parts on the tractor to run, it was time to start the tractor for the first time and make sure everything was working properly. Finally, when the tractor was finished, I tested all the components once again to complete the tractor.
