  1. Corn Picking with the 14P and Farmall H

    Yes, stake it on the ends, only the end you are pulling away from is tight I believe. Most had to roll the wire up by hand I think. I have a front mount planter for C/ SC/200 and have a wire winder that goes on the PTO. So there were options to roll the wire. When I worked in soybean research for Pioneer we still used the same concept and wire to keep the alley ways straight between the blocks.
  2. Terrible day! Pictures!

    Congrats to your SIL. I’ve never won anything in those raffles either...glad to hear they don’t just keep the money and the tractor.😀
  3. Corn Picking with the 14P and Farmall H

    Dad always said with the check row corn it would drop 4 every 40. So essentially you had 40" rows going perpendicular to each other. This allowed cultivating in multiple directions prior to having herbicides for weed control.
  4. IH mounted cultivator id help

    461 I'm pretty sure
  5. Dad passed away

    I’m sorry for your loss. I’ve enjoyed your stories over the years about your Dad.
  6. Electronic ignition - wow!

    I put a Pertonix electronic ignition and coil on my 340. It would crank but would not fire until I took my finger off the starter button. I ended up going back to points. Any ideas what would cause this?
  7. What I've been doing today

    Are you spreading gravel on roads this time of year Pete? Around here most gets done in the spring so it gets packed down and doesn't all end up in the ditch when plowing snow.
  8. Tractor Model Question

    340 would be fine for what you are looking to do. Most of the points made against it will have little affect on what the poster will use it for. But my only complaint about the F340 is ease of getting off and on. As I get older I like that less and less.
  9. Letter Series Styling Upgrade?

    Speaking of a #8 Dr. Evil. When I was 8 my Grandpa moved to town and was going to sell his '41 H. I asked if I could buy it but told him I didn't have much money. He sold it to me for $200 and threw in the #8 2x16 plow. I plowed a couple acres of stalks with it an had to stop and unplug it many times each round. Told Grandpa if I had to plow an entire farm that way I would have sold it and moved to town.
  10. Hired Grain Haulers

    This is off topic but reminded me of my '72 656 diesel. It has the factory ether with push button under the steering wheel like other 66 series. It doesn't appear that it has ever had a can of ether on it but I've always thought that was a dangerous decision by IH to put ether on an engine with glow plugs.
  11. For you old gleaner fans

    My Dad's first combine was an F with a GM gas engine. He did a lot of acres with that machine. He later moved to an M2 and then an R60 before moving to a CaseIH machine.
  12. 30 years ago today it snowed

    Congratulations! No mullet? I think I had one in '87.
  13. Fall '81 Parts & Accessories

    I have a few different parts and accessory catalogs. I enjoy looking at those even more than my buyers guides.
  14. Pasture burning

    Could you just burn off the entire pasture? To me that seems better than burning a windrow.
  15. Who Still has Silos Around the Yard.

    There is still a 20'x60' cement stave silo on my parents place that my Grandpa built when he and Dad milked. The roof blew off in a storm a few years ago. Hasn't been used in close to 40 years, really should be torn down.
