If you can, post a few pictures and I'll see if I can dig it up in one of the books I have.

Is the muffler supposed to be turned 90deg so the body is pointing forward instead of up?

I think you'll find all that extra weight hanging off the front end makes your 40c very tippy. I don't even like the #76 blade on my 40c and it is lighter than what a 6-way setup would weigh.

WTB - #61 complete blade assembly for 1955 40C

I'm in the market for a complete John Deere #61 blade assembly for my 1955 JD 40C. Currently it has a #76 blade off a 440 on it and the blade is just too heavy.

I'm in NE Oregon.

Personally, I like the yellow tractors more. They seem to be more rare around here and stand out. It's not *that* hard to match paint.

Any chance the fuel tank vent is plugged and causing a vacuum after the engine runs for a while?

Looks like an Agricat to me, slightly modified.

Looks like someone put a lift cylinder on it and modified the fenders. If you look at the engine placement, front track idler, and side frames, looks like a match to me.

Installed the new cutter edge last week and it works awesome. I'll definitely be using the gauge shoes for any precise leveling.

I can only imagine the head shake that thing has at anything over 25mph. Look at the rake and trail on the forks. Scary.

Even if it'd be a lot of work, that's rare enough to deserve a restoration :-)

Ok, Lavoy. That is the coolest tool/toy ever. I'm looking at about 75ft of trench to dig and I think I'd rather use that than a little excavator, just for the cool factor.

Why set yourself up for the inevitable "....I wish I had never sold that one." that tractor collectors run in to? Unless you're not a collector :-)

Just picked up the correct JD cutter edge yesterday. Had to torch off four of the eight plowshare bolts, and no one local has them. Fastenal will be shipping some out Monday. The cutter edge was $88 shipped to a John Deere dealer. I didn't even think about replacing the "special cutting edge" attach...
