Moline RTU

I traded my 66 cub loboy off for a 1947 Moline RTU. I think it was a fair trade, anyone have any tips on the moline?

We had an RTU rowcrop to cultivate corn way back. My bros. has an RTS now he takes to the bush.
They are tough and easy to work on the engine. Up here we use to call them Waterloo because they were imported to Waterloo Ontario and sold from there. The R was the smallest and then came the Z, U, G. The Vista 1000 is a 100 horse unit that is quite in demand. The Waterloo Bronco is a small air-cooled 4 wheeled garden tractor.
There is nothing wrong with having a little 'Prairie Gold around. (We had a local dealer in Burgessville ON that sold all these models.)
IHC made a quality machine and was leader of the pack.Let's keep them running,
