 Hope You find the motivation to bring it !  I know one guy that will be all over it , Mel Monterio from Calif. I been working on him to go. He has not given me a definitive answer other then," He met people he really liked last year & he wants to see them again." 

     He is our resident Red tracks guy. He is featuring Red Tracks at CAFES this year.  Our 25 th year anniversary of the show & first time featuring Red tracks.  Next year , I'll be featuring  The I.H. Golden Years of Agriculture . Every and anything I.H..

   He is our CAFES chairman this year but his job will be done by April 30ieth.  Then I take over for 18.

       So he cannot say He is too busy to go RPRU !

           Tony

Thanks, Tony.

I hope you'll be able to convince him to come along!

If it all works out, it might be like you fellas meeting an old neighbor since that machine came from your neck of the woods. (CA) ^_^

It was a far cry then from what it is now though.

Considerable elbow grease was required... <_<

By the looks of the sight glass in that engine, you were the first person to be nice to her in a long time. "Considerable Elbow Grease" looks like a humble term for certain. Good work.

Hopefully bringing this baler to the show. A one owner 46 twine tie baler that is all original. I will be the second owner when the weather straightens out and we can get it out.

Went and looked at it a month ago or so. While looking over the baler I opened up the twine box and there laid the original owners manual. We worked out a deal as he wanted it to go to a good home.

The original owner is 92 I believe and still gets out to feed a hundred or so head of Angus cattle twice a day.

I think with some soap and water it will look almost brand new. I have had the thought about buffing and waxing the paint.

Also hoping to get this together and running soon and to the show. 1966 806. I bought it from a tractor jockey in November with 2 spun rod bearings. Tore the engine down and building it from scratch. Going to put a IH turbo setup on it when I get to that point. Wanting to use it around the farm and will probably get a corn picker mounted on it this fall.
