Well, I've made the decision to hold off on the restoration on my 1955 cub. I am beginning to gather parts to restore the tractor I learned to drive on, my grandfather's 1961 Farmall 560. It needs a lot of work (complete engine rebuild, new T/A and new tires to name a few. This project will take at least 2 years for me to complete. I will try to give updated photos as I progress, but they will be few as I am now just starting to gather parts. Here is what I have to start with.
Brian - I spent many hours on a 560 Diesel. I loved looking down that long hood from the operator's seat!
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Brian, sounds like you have quite a project ahead of you. Good luck and can't wait to see the pictures as you make progress.

Lots of luck with it.

Good luck Brian. I too, got many hours behind the wheel of a 560. Raking hay, plowing and such.
Have fun Brian. Be sure to check the rear axle inner bearing. They were a problem, would go bad and the bull gear would rub a hole in the bottom of the case.

Brian, that's a nice looking original set up, of course the memories are priceless. I would like to have just 1 of the tractors back that Grandpa had when I was a kid. I saw a 412 plow like that on an auction last fall. It had that same rear transport wheel. I'd never seen one like that before.

Well, here is the first update. These may not be the most important items, but at least it gives me something to look at.
These are original emblems that have been restored. They are not the same ones pictured in the "before picture", but what a difference! I didn't notice until I was resizing the pictures that I got my fingerprints on the refurbed emblems.
