This morning with the snowfall the salvage yard takes on an entirely different look. Everything is covered with a blanket of snow and the yard takes on a surreal peaceful look. These photos were taken about 9 am this morning and it snowed through out the day before stopping with an accumulation of around 9 inches.

For the central Piedmont of North Carolina this is a major snow event. Some readers will look at these photos and comment on how little snowfall this is and others will have never experienced this amount, if any. It just depends on your point of view.

We hope you enjoy these photos.

Thank you for stopping by and stay warm.

Today we again check out the shop to see how the Farmall A tractor is progressing. The replacement IH C-113 engine was pulled from a donor tractor and stripped to be fully rebuilt since the original engine had a cracked block. Over the last several posts, we have followed this Farmall A tractor from its arrival at the shop to its current condition.

The engine cylinder head has been fully reworked and is now ready to be mounted. This engine was fully rebuilt using an "out of frame" rebuild kit and now has domed pistons in the new sleeves for increased compression.

The C-113 engine has been fitted with a new clutch kit and all new seals and gaskets upon reassembly. The rear end also received new PTO gaskets and seals and the final drive assemblies are getting new oil pan gaskets.

In future posts we will address radiator replacement and show the reassembly progress on this Farmall A tractor.

Today we check out the shop where an IH Farmall A tractor is being worked on. This Farmall Model A tractor is in the shop to first receive a replacement engine block and full engine rebuild. The engine block casting crack can be seen in the next to the last photo below. When this repair is complete there are several other issues that will also be addressed.

The Farmall A was produced from 1939 thru 1947 and sold for $750 in 1947 for the basic tractor. Approximately 117,00 of these tractors were produced over its eight year run. This makes this Farmall A tractor over 70 years old.

The photos below show the tractor as it was received and being striped down for repairs. As the repairs proceed, we will post additional updates. When completed this should provide an interesting "before and after" comparison.

Please contact us for any additional information for any parts or services you see posted here.

Today we have a look at the restored Farmall 130 tractor that was the subject of an October 18th and October 30th shop post.

With all the engine work, drive train work, and other items needing attention completed, it was finally time to get this tractor back to the owner. The final touches of a new coat of paint, decals, seat cushions, and other details wrap up this tractor and help bring this tractor back to life looking and functioning like new. The results are very nice for a tractor that was produced from 1956 thru 1958 making it approximately 60 years old.

Please contact us for any additional information regarding this post. At Burch Store Tractors we can help you find the new or used part you need, or help you with repairs from small to compete restorations for your Farmall rowcrop tractors.

Today we check out the shop again where the IH Farmall 130 is getting some transmission and rear final drive work.

The transmission shown on the bench is getting several bearings and new seals installed. While both rear final drive assembles were off the tractor, they were disassembled and any worn bearings replaced and new seals installed. Also, both brake bands are being replaced to ensure good braking.

Brakes on a Farmall rowcrop tractor were often heavily used while cultivating. After finishing plowing a row, some operators would turn the steering full lock and apply the brake hard on the wheel on the inside of the turn. This would help pivot the tractor around to line it up with the next adjacent row to be cultivated. This was quite hard on the brakes and broke many a brake band and brake linkage pins or toggles.

Please contact us for any additional information on repairs or parts for these repairs.

The IH 2 Point Fast Hitch came in two versions. The small prong (about 2-1/2 inches) 2 Point Fast Hitch was used on the Super C, 200 and 230 tractors. The large prong 2 Point Fast Hitch (3 inches, measured at the stop welded under the prong) were used on the 300, and larger tractors.

For the tractors that use the smaller prong 2 Point Fast Hitch (Super C, 200, and 230) the following was added to the inventory:
2 Bottom Moldboard Plow with coulters and rear furrow wheel
2 Disc Turning Plow with disc scrapers and rear furrow wheel

Today we check out the shop where an IH Farmall 130 tractor with the C-123 engine is in the middle of getting a full out of frame engine overhaul.

The engine block was separated from the tractor at the bell housing and then the front end was removed. The IH C-123 engine cylinder head was then removed and sent to the machine shop for rework. After checking the block, it was refitted with domed pistons, main bearings, sleeves, and other needed parts to ensure a quality rebuild. Then the engine block was reattached to the bell housing with a new clutch installed. The engine at this point is waiting for the cylinder head to be attached and the intake and exhaust manifold to be bolted up to the head.

Hopefully in the next couple posts, we can follow up on the progress of this engine rebuild.
Please contact us for any additional information. As you can see, we do more than just sell parts at Burch Store Tractors.

Today we check out a Farmall 140 tractor that is the newest addition to the salvage yard. This Farmall 140 has straight full sheet metal, front cultivators, and a One Point Fast Hitch along with the belt pulley drive option.

Notice that the front grill is in good condition even after years of work due to the protection of the front bumper. We just happen to stock a large selection of front bumpers if you would like one for your tractor.

We will be parting out this Farmall 140 so if you or someone you know are in need of any parts that you see here or if you would like to add a 1 Point Fast Hitch to your Farmall tractor, please contact us.

Today we again check out a new arrival to Burch Store Tractors. We just unloaded a Ford 801 Powermaster diesel tractor and equipment. The Ford 801 tractor is rated at 40 horsepower on the belt with a 2.8 liter diesel engine. The Ford 801 was produced from 1957 to 1962. This Ford tractor is NOT a Select-O-Speed but has the manual 5 speed transmission.

We purchased this Ford 801 tractor in non-running condition and it might be parted out for salvage parts. The previous owner had numerous repairs done to the tractor before selling it. The fuel injection pump seems to be the remaining problem with low output pressure. The engine cranks and runs when fed ether but has fuel system problems.

If someone is interested in this entire tractor as a complete Ford 801 tractor or project tractor, this could be the tractor. If not, we will be parting out this Ford 801 for salvage tractor parts.

Please contact us for any additional information.
