Hello everyone, this weekend I picked up the newest addition to my collection of TC tractors, a 17-28, there is no serial number tag but from what I can gather it falls in the 1928 era. The gentleman I got it from said it ran well until it developed mag issues, has a marvel schebler carb and is missing the air cleaner. All of this is minor. It also has new fenders. The trip was not to be forgotten for a while, 2 flats on the trailer on the way home made for a long day. I would like to thank Kent, it was nice meeting you and your wife Mona. Jim

Looks to be a pretty decent TC. Definitely a later model as it has the straight front axle with bearings in the wheels and the large fuel tank.

Nice, and it will never get much water in the engine in that position.

Congratulations! It looks like your tractor has lots of potential!

As I reviewed the pictures I see that your tractor has two different rear wheels. It has an early "12-20" style rear wheel on the right side with a TW43A hub. The one on the left would be the correct one with the FT110A hub. Note that the FT rim was "double punched" to provide for more lug and grouser options on the later tractors.

The original carb was probably the universally frustrating Holley All-Fuel with the coil that extended into the exhaust manifold for preheating. The exhaust manifold appears to be sound which is good as usable ones are sometimes hard to find.

I'll be watching for updates. Good luck on your project!
