Tony, You need to check the tag on the M on the right. If the tag is still there and it matches the grill on that tractor it is either a SMD or a SMD-TA with a TA Delete. In either case they should be in your toy box. Once you get one of those dino's in working order and the word gets out you will have more friends then you ever knew you had coming over on weekends to find out how many hp their toy is really producing.
Could not resist taking these pictures . They were at same yard next to the dyno's
That's a I.H.# 184 cotton planter & the Hay rake behind it is the second model made of the "Morrel wheel rake", manufactured in Tulare ,Ca. Very popular out here in the 50's & 60's.
I think every M and H in these parts pulled one at some time in their life.lol
I can't get enough of looking at these two pictures Its a exact scene from yesteryear .Those M's are beautiful just the way they sit. DAM this RED FEVER MUST BE GETTING THE BEST OF ME.
Another though, if you could get one unit going without sacrificing the other. You could eventually fix up the other for resale to one of those envious weekend friends.
Its a SMD .My young friend Richard Reichert just bought it to restore along with his other MD.
However, Richard has a great NEW LOVE in his life so MD may come in second.
