I picked up this previously undocumented 1947 Empire tractor this past weekend. It has the love three point lift.

The rear end is locked up as is the transfer case. The engine is free.

Nice find The brake assembly’s are a rust catcher, most likely the problem! Have fun with it!...

Dragging this back up; I really want to see how the rear driveline is arranged; I can find pictures from all angles but underneath.  I want to see how it runs from the transfer case to an axle to the wheels.
Searching for time to put it all together...
