1952 Model A Tractor

1952 Model A Tractor
I just got a 1952 Model A tractor, from Bedias Texas. It started out about a year ago when I asked him if he would sell a 1935 Model B John Deere, but he said 'No. ' So I waited and when I wanted a tractor to pull with I spotted the A. When I saw the owner we were at a 'Fish Fry' and I asked him 'I was wandering if you were willing to let a tractor go?' He said 'Mabye, which one were you looking at to buy. ' I said 'Well I was looking at that A you have. ' He said 'Come over next weekend and will talk about it. ' So I went over and we walked down and he said 'Make me an offer, you won't hurt my feelings what you decide. ' But I wasn't sure so I waited him out. So he said 'Will you take 750 for it. ' Immediatly I said 'Yes' and there it was my own 1952 Model A tractor. But the fun had yet to begin. So the next weekend my Grandpa and I went over and we had a 16' bumper hitch that was 6'11 in. wide. We walked down to the tractor and mesured the back wheels, and they were 8' so we had to pull it out from were it was, (under this tree that limbs were scratching on the tractor and peeling the paint off) out to the trail that led to to the owners barn, and start trying to take off the wheels. Then we found out that we would have to switch the wheels around (put the right wheel on the left axle and the left wheel on the right axle). Whell we thought it was gonna go pretty easy, but did it, NOPE. So we start on it and couldn't get them to budge, so we put he heat on them and still couldn't get them to budge. So now it was 12;00 p. m. and we were hungry, and it was getting hot(100% humidity) so we went back home and said well be back tommorrow, but we took the front wheels with us, to get tubes in them, but they were so bad that I just went ahead and bought new tires and wheels. The next day we went back and did the same thing again 'Heat and Tugg'. But finnally we got them off and we started to try and load it. So we got a rope and started up, but it busted. So then we 'Got Smart' and got a chain and pulled it right up on there. Then we sat down with the owner and talked for about an hour, then my Grandpa and I went home, and unloaded it. So to cut a long story short, 'I am the proud owner of a 1952 A, a 1949 MT, and a 1958 Farmall 240. '
