Thanks, guys. I’ll be asking the guy whom I’m getting a replacement tank from about a hood and grille as well.

Got out the other grille, which was in worse shape than the one I was working on. It appears to be a Farmall A grille with the cutout on the right side for the steering housing. Both hoods here below; Farmall B on the left, Farmall A on the right:

Grille on left is for a model B. One on the right is for a model A (see cutaway).

The model B grille only has a round opening. The one on the right (model A) also has a notch for an overflow tube.


I put the grilles away for now. Since it was another warm day, got the radiator and fan shroud stripped and primed. Did a dry assembly and it seems I'll only have to drill a couple holes in the radiator to support the fan shroud; the lower holes work fine.

Ready for wire wheeling.

Primed and dry assembled.

Taking shape.


After this assembly, it also struck me that the fan hub will need to be installed before the radiator. :wink:

Couldn't let a 65F degree day go to waste. Shot some seasonal paint today... :wink:

Glad I haven't tore down my little shed--makes a great painting booth.

Sorry about the direct sunlight.

The extra items I sprayed outside on a table in the yard on sawhorses, then carried them back inside the barn to dry.

Once all this is dry, I can continue some assembly. The only major items left are the gas tank, hood and grille. Will see about acquiring them next and getting them ready for paint later in the Spring.

It was a good day! Wishing you a Merry Christmas! :tractor:

Earlier A/B grilles didn't have the overflow tube notch. I assume there's a serial break but not sure what it is.
