Wow, looks real nice. Greetings from Northern Illinois.

I own a 1986 Case/Ingersoll 446 that I am wrapping up the resto on.

Welcome to the group Doctor. I hope that you won't be charging for house-calls. :thumbsup:

Tell you what, though.......it would be pretty cool if you put together a thread in the Restoration Forum that showed what you did from start to finish with a complete array of photos. We need to encourage members to take on projects like that.

Hydriv and Stewart -

Funny you ask, 'cause I just finished starting a thread in the Restoration Forum! I can add more to it later.

Thanks, NutCASE. I've followed along with many of the threads/pics on your Torq 224.

Rich, your tractor has turned out great. I see you've already put it to work! I'll likely be looking to add a snow blade for next winter

While there is some symbolism there between my use of surgical gloves and my screen name, it is completely coincidental. The truth to that picture was that I picked one of the hottest, most humid, oppressive summer days to do that job. I had pre-coated the new cover and exhaust components with CASE IH hi-temp exhaust paint and it was just like rubber to handle. I had that sh-- all over my hands from trying to roll that cover over the muffler and slide on three new bands.

Went into the garage and saw the box of neoprene gloves and said, "enough of this crap!" and put on a pair. Once finished, I peeled them off my clean hands, then treated myself to at least three Busch Lights (maybe more) from the garage fridge.
