I am going to do it as close to the way it came from the factory as I can. I really want to do my own thing with it but since it is so rare I'm trying to avoid the temptation. On my panzer, I am making a repleca of the panzer we had in my shop when I was in the Air Force at Pease AFB New Hampshire, We used it to drag equipment around the shop. It will be OD green and the same stencles. I will start on that one as soon as i make room in my shop. Probably in a week or 2.

My wife works 3rd shift. So I snuck the motor into my living room while she is sleeping to finish tearing down. I should have it cleaned up and back out of the house befor she wakes up. If you don't see any more post from me that meens she woke up and killed me.

Just got back from the place I order parts. It's going to be a little pricy to rebuild. I need to take it to a machine shop first and see if they need to do anything to the crank and if it will need bored out. I'm guessing I will have $500.00 to $600.00 in the restoration between the motor and tractor.

Kent, I haven't heard back from them yet. Check out awsomehenry.com. They make adapters for V8 ford tractors. Pretty neat stuff. I see you got the motor out before she woke up. My wife's on 3rd shift this week. She works swing shift. I did too for 31 years. Never did get used to it. I have found out since I retired I tend to live life by her schedule. That's good tho. That way I get to be with her more. She is my world. We will be married 25 years in Jan. Looking forward to another 25. Very Happy

That's what I'm waiting for. I may call them next week if I don'thear back soon. I just thought it was neat and would match my tractor. If it's rediculously priced, I won't fool with it. Happy New Year by the way.

I thank they are about 40 minutes away. My wife works at the Sidney hospital sometimes and it takes her 40 minutes to get there.

Kent, I called them today for a price and it's 625.00. For that you get the hood, fenders, radiator cap, decals for everything and 12V headlights. Doesn't sound too unreasonable I guess. I'll have to think about it tho. He said it should be 625.00 but due to a farm show misprint he would sell it for 625.00. He seemed really nice over the phone. Oh, I googled awesome henry and found a couple with the kit installed. They look pretty neat. Just thought I'd share the info.

I might be interested in buying one also. I would probably get some rims that are taller and skinnier front and back Then get some tracker tread tires to make it look more authentic.
