Who was the fellow collecting serial numbers for the Long's. I was talking to him a while back. Seems to me he was in Tenn.

Does anyone have any original Long tractor literature that I could get some high quality copies of?
Thanks.

Ran ads looking for literature. Only heard one piece that went to collector in Texas. Would like too even have a copy.

Figured I'd reserect this thread instead of starting a new one. I picked up a long model a over the weekend it is number 41 built in December of 48. She's pretty rough but still plenty savable. Just a couple questions I have are, was it ever determined if long made there fenders or outsourced them? I fear the fenders for mine went to the scrapper IF they ever even existed, Kansas didn't require fenders in that time so most of our old tractors don't have them. Also, I've seen 2 different styles of font on the hood for the word "long", is there any way to tell which was used or is it just a matter of preference at this point? Someone said something about some sort of registry afew posts back, is that still going on? I'm sure I'll think of some other stuff as I go, this is my first "orphan tractor" and I find it all very interesting as I read about them.

Long fenders are common only to Long. Cockshutt 30 are close but shorter. There was two generations. First year had different frame rails. and decals.

You don't have a set of fenders you'd part with do you?

No problem. If you are willing to sell any parts off of it I might hit you up in the future. My goal right now is to just get it running and moving on it's own but eventually I'm going to have to find a right side axle housing and the brackets that hold up the draw bar
