I think I will just wire brush the bolts and reused them for now and worry about that later. I want to get the tractor running if possible and I am close to setting the lift cover back on.
Who knows what was done to this tractor over the years. I posted a thread over in the history board if you have time to look; it is about the front bumper.
The rear fender brackets have the square holes but the fenders DO NOT have the Ford script on them.
I am not interesting in making the tractor completely original if stuff was changed but if I need to replace something on the tractor then I want to go back with what it should be. It will remain a work tractor.
How do I read all the parts number? I read the post where you mention how to read the engine code but the number I found on one of the trumpets don't seem to fit that pattern.
