Have used the AG6H on and off for 55 years.  Started by putting a foot on the tank to pull the brakes.  Had to wedge down in front of seat to use clutch.  Was told when in trouble turn off ignition, don't recall that happening.  This is after about 5 years of experience with a Ford 8N, but that is another story.

The tractor is tired, would like to return to service.  Common problem, as with others here, track chain.

Welcome aboard Glen! I too learned on an 8N, then a Leader tractor that was similar in size to an 8N. Then I kinda restored my General that had been in our family since new. Then graduated to the bigger stuff. I was able to drive around our OC-96 when I was pretty small as it took no physical effort to go back and forth and steer. Wish we still had it.
