Farmall M and Cockshutt 1550...

With the 1456 almost done, I pulled the next 2 tractors in the shop. One will be a Farmall "M" and the other will be a Cockshutt 1550

This will be the Farmall...
 This one will be the Cockshutt...
I started on the "M" hood and fuel tank... I bought a Farmall A nose and fuel tank and started cutting them down...
 



I got the fuel tank "cover" welded up today.
I started the grill for the Cockshutt.

 
Got started on the hood...
Steering for the M arrived today... My machinist is TOPS!

 Steering linkage is done...
 Steering pedestal...
Front end is mounted...
 
I got the grill from my machinist. It was CNC routed from a file that I sent to him...
 Bent to shape...
 She's starting to look like an M...
I started working on the other end...
 
  I got the seat mounted today...
I got the dash done for the Cockshutt...
I'm just about done with the M... 
I started working on the swinging drawbar for the Cockshutt...
Electric 3 point hitch...
I got the M back from the sandblaster...
 Some red paint... I like it.

Started some assembly...

 
I set up the next ad for the Red Power Magazine...
I'm finally ready to paint the Cockshutt...


 I'm done with the M now... the "hub caps" really finish it.




The Cockshutt is all done...
