I restored this 1946 Minneapolis Moline R that my Dad bought new. It did not run when I got it and the overall paint condition was bad from all the pigeon droppings. Many hours were spent rebuilding the engine which required a new cam, rocker arm, rings, and bearings.
This tractor was the main “workhorse” for many years to plow, disk, plant, cultivate, and do all the other tasks that you do on a small 109-acre dairy farm in northern Illinois. My 4 brothers and 2 sisters and I all learned to drive with this tractor.
