Anybody who is into farming rarely has time for a hobby. However, if you have a few hours during your week that you would like to start a new hobby, why not try international Farmall tractor restoration? These name-brand tractors were hugely popular during their day, and restoring them has quickly become part of farming history. It is also a fun little challenge to find international Farmall tractor parts, since many of these tractors have been left in fields to rust. Here are a few more reasons why you might enjoy this hobby.
You Can Share It with Your Kids
Some dads (and a few moms) spend time with their teenagers by rebuilding old cars. You live on a farm, far from most everything, so rebuilding a car is not exactly useful. Yet, learning to rebuild vintage tractors is not only useful, but it has the same kind of bonding experience that rebuilding an old car has. Additionally, you are passing along a bit of that farming heritage to the next generation that will take over the family farm.
You Can Learn New Skills with Rebuilding Tractor Engines
Not every tractor is built the same, and the older the tractor, the less it has in common with modern tractors. You could learn something new about tractor engines you did not know before. This could be an advantage if you need to rebuild a modern tractor engine and you are not sure how to go about it. Taking a page from your hobby book (and the old tractor on which you are working for fun), you could jerry-rig something up with the new tractor by what you have learned rebuilding the old one.
Your Hobby Could Take You off the Farm
How often do you get off the farm? Probably never, right? This particular hobby might lead you out of the state, or even out of the country, when you go looking for Farmall tractor parts. That could be somewhat exciting, even fun, to get a break from the daily routine of farming.
Since there is not much farming to do in winter, your hobby might even lead you to someplace warm for a couple of days. Would that not be a nice vacation? If you have farmhands and teenagers, they could stay behind and manage the farm for the few days that you are away on farm business, looking for tractor parts.
