Thanks Charlie. This is our first Farmall M. We always tinkered with the smaller Farmalls. IH built right around 250,000 Ms. It was there best ever selling tractor and their largest for years. Funny little story. We unloaded it in our neighbors field across from the house. He let us borrow his Kubota tractor to pull up to our shop. The tractors are about the same horse power. The Kubota almost made it but could not keep traction. These newer tractors ain't got enough weight. Take care.
