Tractor Repair

Steve Simon and his right-hand man, Ramon Rivera, are overhauling the tractor. They have torn it down, replaced gaskets, tightened bolts, pounded out and welded fenders, changed the oil in the hydraulics, installed a new and larger hydraulic pump, replaced the seat, and now they are painting it. Rangemaster Joe won't recognize the old tractor when it shows up again at Sun Valley.

Above, Ramon put the dashboard in
place on the Sun Valley tractor that Steve
Simon & Ramon are refurbishing in Steve's shop.
