Buying Bad Luck

Buying Bad Luck
This story starts one day in September 1999 after I had got the tractor restoring bug. I had already restored 3 other tractors and was looking for another one. I got to thinking about my Great Uncle's Model H he had sitting in the woods. It had been there for twenty five + years but I was wanting something to restore so I offered him $75 for the pile of junk grown over in trees with the motor stuck and the wheels sunk down in mud. He took the offer so we set out over 200 miles to go get it. When we got there my Uncle had to lift it out of the mud with his backhoe and set the wheels in because it was set too wide. Then he picked it up with his backhoe and put it on our trailer. We set out for home, got it in the shed and pulled the head off. The block was busted out through the cylnder so a new motor would be necessary. Then we pulled the raditor off and it fell apart so a new radiator would be needed too. The back wheels were rotted beyond repair so a new set of rear wheels would be needed (and on and so on) but I got a pretty good motor and now it runs good and looks good. It took 4th Place as Best Restored On Steel at the local show so I think I did pretty good and had fun doing it!
