My wife an i took a ride down to New Jersey to get a couple parts from Kirk, it was nice to put a face to a name. Great guy very knowledgeable with these old tractors and i saw why. Man alive what a collection, pulling out of the driveway i said to my wife wow now that's a collection. her reply was don't even think about it, lol. we made it home safely rear end is unloaded and on stands in dads garage and the 53 is ready to be pulled apart. Thanks again Kirk, it was nice to meet you.
