That looks beautiful! Did you do any work on the cab? I noticed in some of the pictures the cab bottom looked a little rusty when you brought it home.

Man that is something. Way to create something from nothing. I would love to attack something like that some day. Impressive. Research time is one of those things you cant hardly account for.

It’s been five years since we began the 45 Titan Air Start Project. It’s been a long journey with many twists and turns. We never would have made it without the help of so many people along the way. Today we belted the tractor up to the old Farmall H and with some luck the old girl fired up! He’s a short video of her first few breaths.

Congrats on a job well done! I'm sure glad the 4020 didn't have a belt pulley on it! Jason

Dan: “THANKS” for sharing your five year journey with us. The most I’ve ever done is one year on a project that was just an IHC Side Shaft engine with a “few” less missing parts . I bet the adrenalin was just a pumping when she first fired and ran on her own . I could feel the excitement. As with these extended, complex projects it takes a lot to keep on it. With help from friends (old and new) you stayed with it, and got it running . We know that there is more to do . Thanks again for sharing with us on SmokStak. Paul-OLDIHC
