Nice Video. I enjoyed watching it. I am a long time lurker, but have recently joined. I sure like the 140, 240, and 340 series. Hope to collect a set of these tractors someday. I am still missing the 340 and currently out of tractor funds. It will take sometime to recover from buying a nice original, low hour 140 last fall. My 240 is still in need of a facelift. It runs good and is complete. The engine and mechanical stuff, all seems to be in pretty good shape. It needs a few new seals, minor repairs, all new gauges, and then paint and decals. Does anyone have a picture on the dash layout on these tractors? Mine has apparently been vandalized sometime, and all glass in all gauges is gone and none of the gauges are readable. Does any one know if there are combines of this vintage that used the same or similar instruments? I thought maybe this might be a source for some nice used gauges. I enjoy the site and usually learn something each time I come here.
