Nice tractor! Looks like you have some good help to keep you company.
That's a creative manual lift for the sleeve hitch. The wheel bearing dust caps are interesting too.
Wish I had a picture of it before we cleaned it up the first time. The electronics were in a bucket that filled with water. If you look closely at the steering wheel you can still see green paint from when I painted the whole tractor to be my army jeep shortly after my Dad gave it to me. I was like thirteen I think. Not a fun day cleaning that off
As I go along I'll try and post close up pictures of the wheel dust caps and the hitch lift that my Dad made. My Dad also modified the hitch to be wider so it would clear the sides of the tractor and lift higher.
The helper is Ezekiel (Zeke for short) and every time I moved the camera he moved to be in the picture.
