I bought a Farmall A

Well I bought a Farmall A today. Its currently stored at my Nan's farm while I organise a shed for it here. It runs well but the carb needs a rebuild as petrol pours out the bowl gasket. Kind of wish it was electric start though.

Nice tractor! Doesn't look too beat up and front wheel weights too. Get those mag points filed and gapped, clean the carb and you shouldn't have to worry about electric start. But I know what you mean...

Do you see many tractors for sale around you, down under?

Thanks for sharing your pictures! :hattip:

Yes there's quite a few around still. I was wanting a super A but when I saw how straight and original this one was at a good price I snapped it up. The only part missing is the left guard (fender) due to a hydraulic unit being bolted on above the rear pto that was fighting for space.
Will be looking for a belly mower to fit to it so it can earn it's keep.

Electric start is for wimps. LOL I see it is a dual fuel, does it still have the shutters?
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Radiator shutters? I think so. There was a control rod leading to that direction, I only had the trailer for 3 hour hire so it was a mad rush to go get and then travel the 40km to stash it out of sight at the farm. We had 100kph wind that day so that made towing interesting.
