heh, we just sold our ZB, I really liked it, but needed the money for the other projects.. mostly B John deere's.. Favorite sound has to be a 620 coming up over the hill dragging a plow.. of course it has to have a straight pipe on it.. :evil:
We had a 1942 TE Ferguson out in the field.. (TE made in England, TO meant made overseas) My step grandfather parked it in 1971 because it kept skipping timing with a worn dist/cam gear... We were cleaning the hill, and it was going to be hauled to the scrap yard... On a whim I decided to see how bad it was... This was three years ago, so that Fergy sat in the field for 40 years... I towed it to the shop.. and of course.. it was stuck... marvel, and a concoction of penetrating oils and diesel fuel were poured into the cylinders and let set overnight.. put a bar on it the next morning and almost killed myself when it freed up.. 20 minutes later it was sitting there idling happily.. rev it up and it jumped the gear...
I put a new cam in it, and replaced the lift cylinder and rings, put new REAR tires on it, and I have been using it to mow with ever since... The MM ZB we had... the guy that was interested in it offered to pay a lot more if we could get it running.. I have honestly NO idea how long it sat in the back corner of the barn... at least 30 years,, but was NOT stuck... I put fuel in it, put a battery in it.. sent dad to get the battery charger knowing it was going to take some cranking... rolled it over just for the hell of it... it didnt roll three times before it fired and ran... Drove it out of the barn on rotted off tires to the amazement of the fellow who wanted to buy it.
Have AC's.. wd and wc's, MOST years of JD B's. A couple 620's and an LP 630, and L and an A john deere,, oh, also have a 670 Mini Mo we use with the bush hog. LOVE the older tractors, but its the 620 that I could sit and listen to all day long.
