This 1945 Farmall A was my first vintage farm tractor. I bought it for $900 in April of 2018. I believe it’s all original. We drove 3 hours to Eastern Connecticut from Cape Cod.
I had it running the night I got it home. The first thing I did was check over the whole tractor. It was running really good but it has been sitting in storage for 20 years. I removed the oil pan. It was full of sludge at the bottom. After changing the oil I replaced the spark plugs, cap, carburetor, and gear oil. Almost half of what drained from the transmission was water. The next part was the muffler that was completely rusted out.
I had it all ready a week before the Fourth of July parade in my town. Not soon after the bearing in the fan pulley seized. Thanks to Steiner Tractor I had the part shipped next day with only 2 days left until the parade. The morning of the day before the parade I received the fan. My Farmall made it through the whole parade and then some without overheating and ran great. Thanks Steiner Tractor
