He Did It

After three months of being in the shop in pieces Jason finally got the Allis Chalmers tractor back together and running. It took that long to get all the parts. Most of that time was researching where to get some of the parts and getting a few of them specially machined.
He was so surprised. Not me!!!!! I told him I knew he could do it. Not only is it together and running but the three-point hitch arms are back on and operating for the first time since I have known the tractor.
He got it together and then ran it around the farm. Then he and his buddy Phoenix had to try it out together. Phoenix helped him put the brakes together and the back tires on. Phoenix loves to help Jason. He was so proud when he got all greasy!

he really felt the need for the hard-hat when he found it sitting in the shop. So Mary-Kate took a picture of him sitting on his new favorite tractor.

Yesterday Jason tried it out by putting the disc bine on it and mowing the hay with it. It has more power than it ever had.
