Nice job there!

It's been as fun for us to follow along as it evidently has been for you to get this up and running.

It's been about 16 months since my final post on this thread. The Cat is aging very well. and I have had it a few shows but have been busy with the big Case 1200 till I finished it 2 weeks ago. Those who followed this thread know that during the restoration I bought two Cat 20's that I used for many parts. Problem I am finished with the 25 and have a complete tractor and piles of parts all over the yard. I contacted Jason Payne and he agreed to come and pick it all up rather than having me scrap the rusty iron. Jason and his dad left home in Long Island at 4:00 Am and got to my place at 8:00 this morning. It took 2 hours to load his 30 foot trailer and my yard was several thousand pounds lighter. The 4 attached PIcs show the complete load ready to head back to NY. There are enough parts to put together one tractor but a lot of assembly will be required. Thanks Jason for helping me clean out some of my yard. Ed B
