Sure glad to have you here at CCI.

A lot of us here had the same hand me down tractors that's a great thing for us
Enjoy your time here and thank you for joining our group.👍
The M1 reminded me of Sherman tanks. I don’t know if that’s right, it could mean a different thing. Any way, my fathers rank in the Canadian Army was a Trooper. He was a mechanic/driver in the Second World War. Drove Sherman tank. Lucky to have made it thru. Drove first Canadian tank into Sicily in 42, I was told. True or not, I don’t know. He would never speak of the war when asked.
Welcome to the site, hope to see more of your tractor. I seem to have gained two Case tractors with in the last year. A 446 and just 3 weeks ago, a 224. Have fun with your tractor.
The time frame he listed would mean the M1 Abrams tanks.
I was in an Infantry unit in Germany in 83, were I saw a M1 Abrams for the first time (Cool). Then on to Fort Riley KS, and a tank unit with M60's. I was 63T, light wheel / tracked vehicle mechanic, worked mostly on jeeps, 2.5 & 5 ton trucks and M113 Armored personnel carriers.
