Nice! I see you have the twin oil pump which is a rare option. Very handy with a loader.

Hello,

What a nice tractor you have for your restauration. When it'll be tidied up, this surely will look as new.
Could you seperate the upper and lower half of the cab easily or did you just cut it in half?

Before you put it back together 6 pot consider replacing the bearing on the fan shaft. The fan (and pulley) are a long way from the bearing and there is quite a bit of strain on the bearing.

A fan through the rad. is not a pretty site.

Thomas, the top half of the cab is fastened on with about 9 allen key bolts so its only a case of removing those and unplugging a few wires and its off. I took the tin roof off first and side windows out then lifted the frame of it of with ease.
