  1. Close to finishing my 16 year olds first car. Thrashed on it all night and this morning to get it road worthy to go to the GS Buick nationals today in Bowling Green Ky. I've painted metallics and pearls but never a true metal flake before and really screwed it up. Put 2 coats of clear over the metal flake and it was still rough like cast iron so I changed guns on the 3rd coat and really laid it on and really laid on the runs too 😅 We'll sand it out and re-clear and get it right somehow. We've both learned a lot on this and today this car drew more attention than cars costing much more.

  7. ...the "Toll Road "" was only opened for a few weeks this year..... due to ongoing flood damage....unusual for this area and for this time of year....however the weight of opinion, from minds greater than mine.....is the collective breaking of wind, by the 800 cattle up there is the obvious cause .......apparently.... I used to buy rifles ..(proper ones... ) from a dealer in Newark NJ....He was a neat bloke...but he always had trouble with the Postal Service...and one day he phoned me up here in New Zealand and said something like this.....""If they have two eyes..two ears ...a mouth..hands even.....but no f***ing brains...they work for the Newark Postal Service.."....this unsolicited testimony, in reference to fellow ''Homo Erectus" was delivered in a Humphrey Bogart accent...how I laughed...but sadly that comment applies all over the globe...especially to our New Zealand 'single stomach ruminants''...to wit..The Climate Crisis Experts...sigh......The Greenies...However I digress..... We were frantically busy some weekends...particularly over Easter.....due in part to our infamous "Red Queen ' standing on the necks of so many regular folk for so long....so when the foot was lifted and petrol was a mere $12 .00+ ... a US gallon equivalent..... the folks went driving....lots coming via the ferries from the North Island to visit the Mainland.... I played my usual pivotal role in the driving of 435 calves and about 200 cows , about 15 miles down to the Homestead flats.....I get to drive the Ute and horse float back down....and open the many gates on the way...plus make sure no one is on the , at times , narrow road.... The rest of the cows that are deemed morbidly obese...are pregnant and winter over up in the flats and vmountains, without supplementry tucker...No trouble at all.... Few pictures....not good ones of the cattle..I am always in the wrong place....one of a neat old Model "A"....with 1935 I believe, V8 wheels....Left hook as well..(we had a 4x4 Maserati come through..unusual ) a few Canada Geese...(thousands in the NZ high country...)One of our RP members, @MacAR believed the geese took a wrong turn down near Albuquerque.....but that is subject to confirmation................................... Put a stove ..homemade some time gone for our shed, after our house burned down..back in "91...in the old Accommodation house in which we stay whilst up in the boonies...It replaced a totally inadequate pot belly...Picture of a frosty morning , taken on a phone thing Oh...picture of the ''tops' where the red stags were roaring , a few weeks back....a normal view..then a closer view .......and an arrow that was imbedded into an animal....through the back steaks...Animal ok...Farm Manager very angry....Winter pic of the old Accommodation House Mike

  9. Today was the Celebration of Life for Dave H.; a co worker, friend and tractor enthusiast. He was a gifted Ford and 2 cylinder JD mechanic, but he worked on all makes. He never told anyone no, when they asked for his help ( to his detriment). We lost Dave right at the end of last year and his family invited all who cared about him for one last party. I apologize for the off brand tractors, but these were Dave's passion. Hope you enjoy. Dave a few years ago on the Red Rock Threshers Ride. Dave's collection: The Fords: He loved his Select-O-Speeds.

  10. Has the boys working ground with 2 other rigs so I took the 15 and went and worked a 80 of fall moldboard plowing. A nice project. Took about 6 hours. Just listened to the radio and relaxed. Enjoyed a good ole PB and J sandwich!

  11. We started hayin last week, just a few acres to try everything out. Had a few breakdowns, but had everything working good by the end of the week. Thought you all would enjoy the pictures. Three of us put up about 800 bales in the barn, over a couple evenings, with no sweat or hired labor. All gathered with an accumulator behind the baler and loaded and stacked with the grapple. I did load 80 by hand, in a field that was too small and too rough to use the accumulator. And some orchardgrass yet to be mowed. I know some of you are cringing that we let it get that mature before we mow. But we don't have weather to put up dry hay around here until early May most years. So the first cutting gets a little more mature than I'd like.

  14. This week finally provided enough dry days to venture in the field. Still too cold and windy for this time of the season: Some spots were a little tacky under the disk, so no till planting is still a no-go. Wind is way to strong to spray, so tillage it is! Hit all the washouts and rough spots with the 1486 and 15' 37 disk. Had a wet hillside tiled. Took a couple hours to smooth out the 3 strings. That hill made the 1486 work a little! We needed to narrow up some waterways that had expanded too wide. Dad hit them with the 756 diesel and the 311 plow. Handy unit! I followed with the 1486 and disk. Dad followed up with the 544 hydro and 2 section drag harrow. Nice to work a few of the tractors in the field!

  15. First off, I’m far from a wood worker so the disclaimer is out there. Last fall I was lucky enough to bag a decent buck during our firearm deer season. Full shoulder mounts are getting pretty expensive and since this was not a record breaking deer I decided to have the local taxidermist’s beetles clean the skull up for me to do a European style mount. Here is what I came up with for a plaque to mount that on. The picture is from a trail camera that happened to be about 10 yards from where I shot the deer. That pic is 5-10 seconds before I pulled the trigger. 100+ year old saw mill cut barn board cleaned up and sealed ancient 1/4 round I found on top of a barn rafter complete with white aged paint for a frame borrowed a router to inlay the spot for the picture. $2, 5x7 frame from DG for the glass. 2021 deer pin you can get for filling your tag and slug I recovered from the deer inlaid into the board Finished product on the barn for good sunlight (it won’t stay there 😊)

  17. I don't know one darn thing. So I'm throwing some photos from Facebook on here. Anson, I don't think they are building a midway or a runway here with horses? It's likely a highway? They really didn't need a highway. The cars were negotiating it satisfactorily it appears? Long before the highway above, this was the trail westward, it appears? Before those travelers came along, this was a little girl on that road. It would sure appear her daddy was a darn good hunter, with all of those "elk ivories" laced to her dress. Long after the highway was completed, the railroad felt they needed to come through as well. This is a section gang. Railroads brought depots and elevators to some towns. This is the depot at Moore, Montana on the Jawbone Railroad. About this time the Milwaukee bought the Jawbone. That Model T Ford is one of the very first and is a rare "Tourster," a touring car without any doors. L.M. "Pappy" Dyer was the Moore Depot agent for many, many years. Moore, Montana had four elevators at one time. The Jawbone RR steam locomotive is stopped at the water tower tank, filling the tender. The Montana elevator at left was the first grain elevator in Montana's 100 mile diameter Judith Basin. This is Glengarry, Montana where I grew up. They had two elevators. For a little while, they had two elevators. But shrunk back to just one before my lifetime. Tiny little Moore, Montana had four grain elevators at one time. Otto Briese, left, ran the Greeley Elevator for years. Jim Mundy (R), son of my first two years band instructor, is Otto's hired man. There was much steam engine traffic on Lewistown, Montana's Main Street before it was paved. This is a building being moved ca 1910 near the Fergus County Courthouse. I believe that is a 15-30 Avery gas tractor, a 30 hp undermounted Avery steam engine and a ZZ Geiser Peerless pulling it. Paving Main Street in Lewistown, Montana began in 1912. I believe that is a steam powered concrete mixer? Even a pontoon bridge was used in this North Dakota Red River Crossing. It would even hold up Model T Ford sedans. Building modern concrete highways meant you needed to mount a Greco concrete dryer on your Fordson to dry that highway concrete faster. When I was a younger man, this is how they would have built that highway, using Cat DW21s All of that trail riding also brought breaking the prairie like this "honyocker" in eastern Montana. Some farmers wanted their sod broke faster than one bottom at a time. Some was broke with modern methods though. This Canadian engine was a straw burner, even plowing. I think this is an IHC tractor that got in on the action? It's likely pulling a Parlin & Orendoerff, now IHC plow? I don't know the horsepower of this Minneapolis gas tractor. I'll bet Roger knows though?!! The Model T Ford Touring Car is a 1916 though! Montana even went through the same growth (and in recent years demise [farms bought up by one corporation]) as North Dakota. After breaking the prairie, crops were produced and harvested. This is a 36 hp M. Rumely engine in central Montana. Barn threshing on an established farm with a 45 hp Case steam engine. IHC got in on the harvest too. That's a lot of "stack threshing" to do. A Gaar Scott steam engine is powering a double blower threshing machine. Farms growth brought towns. False front buildings too. Winter was an obstacle sometimes too for those settlers. The farmers figured out how to make winter work with them. The banks were never wooden, false front buildings though. Ready to help the farmers. Ready to loan money and collect interest were the tellers inside. Even little Buffalo, Montana's First State Bank was (is still) brick. This was in 1929, believe it or not. Dust Bowl Refugees heading to the West Coast for "work" but withdrawals were impossible with a locked bank. The First State Bank of Buffalo, Montana today. Town growth brought implement dealerships. The Judith Hardware in Lewistown, Montana also dealt in Flour City gas tractors. Town growth also brought dealerships like this IHC McCormick-Deering dealership with their 8-16 Moguls. And when farm equipment broke down, they needed the local blacksmith to repair it. Either permanently, or until parts could be telegraphed (sometimes even telephoned for) for and their arrival on the train. The same went for boiler repairs. They were generally done by a local who was willing to go into business and tackle repairing boilers. That engine is a Minneapolis return flue straw burner. This blacksmith shop is re-tubing or re-fluing a Minneapolis return flue steam engine. Tubes were the most frequent part of boiler equipment to stop a steam engine from working. Towns brought Saloons. This fancy one was at Jordan, Montana. This was Charlie Russell's hangout for a few years at Utica, Montana, the area where he became a cowboy. He may have even slept off a night or two in the Judith Hotel? The interior of the Elkhorn Saloon in Lewistown, Montana. The Hamilton-Clingan Saloon at Kendall, Montana. GR Hamilton was my great uncle. He had the saloon operating around the clock, as the two large gold mines in Kendall ran three shifts. So a miner could get off work in the middle of the night, stop in and have a cold one. Upstairs held another business operated by ladies. That was available 24 hours as well. Towns also brought coffee shops too. This one is also a grocery store as well. Men would likely really love shopping in this hardware store. The women probably would NOT? While the men shopped above, the ladies would likely go to this hardware instead? Or in later years, this hardware for the ladies? The Montana Hardware company in Lewistown, Montana opened in 1892. Grandpa Yaeger's former employer, steamboat magnate TC Power, was a principle owner. An interior shot inside the Montana Hardware in Lewistown. The ladies would surely want to go next door to this Montana Hardware to the Dry Goods store next door, the Lewistown Commercial Co.? Since they sell firearms, the men will stop over to get their wife. And maybe a new Winchester 1886 in 40-82 caliber? After all, it is a new necked down "wildcat" caliber made off of the 45-90 brass. Even little ol' Moore, Montana where I graduated high school and found my "going on 60 year" wife had a hardware store. Andy Matthews sold IHC McCormick Deering engines too. Andy Matthews also built the Office Bar. A prideful thing that area ranchers and city folks could say, "I'm going to the office." Andy Matthews (R) even sold buggies and harness at Moore. Some towns even got a church! This was in Glengarry, Montana in my younger years. The church was also used for School programs. This was me there at age 11, playing my squeezebox. A McCormick-Deering 15-30 (or could be a 22-36?) has replaced the steam engine on this farm, likely. McCormick-Deering put a lot of farms on steel wheels and removed the horseshoes (that stayed on the horse's feet) from the fields. I would often find old horseshoes when summer fallowing on the farm. Sometimes I'd even get a "ringer" on a chisel plow or rod weeder shank! This woman is so tickled her man got a 10-20 McCormick-Deering that she can't wipe the smile off of her face! This couple are proving how stout the tin hoods were on their 10-20. Roger, is that an "under seat" cylindrical Model T Ford gas tank mounted on top? Automobile dealerships sprung up too. The Fergus Motor Company, Lewistown, Montana. A new Ford Model (TT) Ton Truck could replace the team and wagon on the farm for hauling grain. (Plus you can always tell when a Model T Ford is getting lubrication! Check underneath the engine's oil pan...) Then after buying the new Ford Model TT Ton Truck, have a cabinet builder make you a cab and a box for it. This was the "last" Model T Ford built, the 15,000,000th. A well established farm has moved up to a McCormick-Deering Farmall Regular! Towns became modern. Automobiles, pickups, electricity, brick stores, cafes, telephones, you name it. This farm family is making a big splash with this Maytag dealership. They're trading off their two cycle, gasoline powered washing machine for a brand new Maytag electric wringer washer. What a day this was! Thi This is a farm still threshing in 1945. I can't make out the steel wheel tractor from that exhaust pipe and steering wheel? This is a more modern Jeep shown, but after WWII, the Jeep was not only promoted as a vehicle that would "go anywhere" AND do light farming. I wish I had a dollar for every hour I spent getting cows, shooting gophers and climbing hills with Dad's 1947 half cab jeep. The only "rollover" I've ever been in was that Jeep. Brother Bill was a 6th grader driving us to the Glengarry one room school in 1950. It was icy, we were climbing the hill out of Beaver Creek valley that curved to the bench between Cottonwood and Beaver creeks. The rear wheels broke traction on the ice in that curve and it spun around, then the wheels "grabbed gravel" and we went straight into the ditch and it climbed an embankment then rolled back down. This is the only picture I have of Dad's 1947 half cab Jeep. The cab is sticking out of the snow drift between the two buildings. Not our Jeep nor our year, but I remember the Cottonwood and Beaver Creek bench road looking just like this in the 1949-50 School year. This was the Glengarry one room school house (and teacherage) I attended for eight years. This was my first grade year at the school. Brother Bill second from left and I'm in the black and white plaid shirt at right, with my mouth making an "O"! Regardless of the brand of tractors (IH were definitely more exciting!) it was always a happy time when a tractor was delivered to the farm. This one is an Oliver. I just loved this barn! And so I don't lose track of this thread as IH Tractor on a Montana Farm, I'm posting this one from several years ago at Mike's Silver Creek place. Gary😉

  18. Bought this old cyclo back in '17. This is the first time it's been inside. Don't think the p/o did either. The plan is once the beans are in the ground to park it in the shed and not have to tarp the tanks! Tried to get as much Red as I could in the picture.

  21. Red power folks are some of the truly finest people out there. I received this in the mail from a fellow member. He wouldn’t take reimbursement, but ive got his number now😂 this was made in Hartford Ct, an area my wife’s family hails from. They are from Melrose and Farmington which are either side of the big city. Some light reading tells me the Billings and Spencer Co was a pioneer in adjustable wrenches, but i want to do more research. This is still a fine little wrench and will find a place quite nicely in my toolbox. many thanks!

  22. This Oct. will mark 60 years since as a young Lance Corporal, MOS 6511 (aviation ordnance) attached to the "Vagabonds" VMA 225, MAG 14, 2ND MAW based at Cherry Point NC when we received orders for our squadron to deploy to the USS Enterprise CVAN-65 which was steaming South off the Atlantic coast toward Cuba to take part in the blockade of Cuba due to the Cuban missile crises. We would be the first Marine squadron to serve aboard a nuclear powered carrier. We were deployed from Oct.20 to Dec.9 1962. Our pilots flew our A4D-2N Skyhawks onboard & we arrived via COD (carrier onboard delivery) aircraft. I will never forget as a KANSAS FARM BOY looking out the window of the COD & seeing the Enterprise looking the size of a postage stamp on the water & a lump coming up in my throat thinking there was no way they could land on a ship that small as I had never seen a ship or flown over or onto a carrier. We (the ordnance crew) spent the first three days loading our aircraft with 250 lb. general purpose bombs on multiple bomb racks, sidewinder, Bull Pup, Zuni & shrike missiles plus 20 mm cannon rounds depending on the mission assignment for each aircraft. We were going on pure adrenaline those 3 days as we only got a total of about 3 hours sleep. after the crisis ended we flew training missions & I was able to take these photos on the Enterprise.

  23. Thought I better take time to share this picture. My son found this 5288 a few weeks ago. We went and looked at it and drove it a little bit. I told him don't even think twice about it, buy it! Considering what some of them have been bringing recently I'd say he did good on the price. Its an 84 model according to the serial number. The Sentry module is still in place and it has a fairly fresh reman engine. Came with a WL48 westendorf loader. We needed an MFD loader tractor and something that was big enough to take to the field if need be. It has a few oil leaks but we are slowly getting them took care of. We put new seals in the front hubs already. Stuff for that frontend is pricey. Some of it is the same as a magnum and some is not. The sun shafts were they same as a magnum but the seals were not. I was able to get new Dana sun shafts from Hy Capacity. The big hub seals I think Bronson said they were 320 or 360 each. Googled the National seal number on them and got nothing. The spindles had an old style bushing that could have been re machined for magnum style bushings but we decided to just go back with what it had like factory. Didnt want to wait on a machine shop. It also has an exhaust leak. I say time for a Schweitzer upgrade and a muffler eliminator and chrome stack when we tackle that job. It also has tilt wheel that's a little loose. Would like to get it up to par and try it out on the NH3 bar but not sure we will have it ready soon enough. On a side note, a 5088 MFD that was very clean and in the 2K range on the hour meter sold for 30K a couple weeks ago at Unionville, Mo.

  25. Hello All, I've been lurking here for years and absorbing the info I learn here. Now, just for fun I thought I'd share my progress on my 1206. First I'll give some back story. Around the age of 7 or 8 (1981-82) I was riding along with my dad in the cab of his 1026 plowing some hilly land we rented. The farm across the fence line was run by my god-father. He was out working his field with his 1206. Open station, duals, and that straight pipe stack puffing away as he climbed his hills. I knew at that young age I wanted one. Fast forward 10ish years. As a senior in High school, I needed a project for shop class. My god-fathers 1206 had been sitting in a field for about 3 years with the MCV and misc parts in 5 gal pails. It seems it had broke down and after inspection, it was found the gear for the hydraulics on the main shaft was shot. He wasn't interested in splitting the tractor in the field and had no shop to work in so it sat. I told him I'd take it to school and do the work if he could get me the parts as I needed them. Done! The 12 was put back to work until he sold it off at his farm auction. I was crushed when I heard it got sold. I didn't even know he was having an auction. I know who bought the tractor and still owns it now. He is a neighbor of mine that I get along with very well. So, I am on the long list of people waiting for him to sell it. I couldn't wait any more so I started watching c-list and auctions for my own 12. Turns out one popped up half way across the country that I was the first to call on. It had been sitting in a fence row for 20+ years but it ran and drove. I hooked the trailer and rolled out 5am the morning of Good Friday 2017. The wife and I arrived at the spot early Saturday morning. We met with the daughter of the previous owner who had passed away. She didn't know exactly what she had but the neighbors had told her it was very a desirable tractor. She was great and we loaded up, headed for home, and I unloaded it Easter morning. Here's the pictures that were in the ad when it was listed. Yup. I drove half way across the country to spend my money after seeing these. I had been bit bad all those years ago. I'll add more later on and share my progress. I hope you all enjoy. Thanks, Dennis

  26. We made a quick trip to Longview Texas to watch my oldest granddaughter graduate from high school. She was in the top 10% of her class of 435 kids! She international bachelorette graduate. She explained that to Lisa and I only caught part of it, but it is a tough deal. she was my hired girl when we were up on the ranch. And at the time could out shoot me with her 410. it was hot down there but a beautiful stadium and a hoot to sit in the nose bleed section with proud family of all the graduates.

  27. Looks like this is the week. Should be able to get the “real” farming well under control and then plant a little with these two classics! I am going to p,ant 35 acres of 38” corn so if you have a picker or a wide row combine come join in the fun the last Saturday of September and help pick this field!

  28. We went out to Pueblo to help my father in law brand his calves. There were 4 calves per horse, gathering. Problem was there was only one person who had a clue. Lisa did a good job!! We started out with Sloppers. Green chili over open face burger and fries. He has his IHC equipment. His 350u has hydrostatic steering that I found him a number of years ago. His lawn is tiny but he has a Cub to mow with. The country is actually greening up. Jack is 74 years young, and got piled up on Thursday. He has stitches in his eye brow, and scalp. Along with a terrible swelling and black eye. The branding went really well and we got done before the weather got hot and windy. My dog is normally shiny black, but she likes her dust baths.

  33. Yea, but it has all been good. I could have been broken down up by Sandhiller or some other place hundreds of miles from the dealer that overhauled it to start out with. I worked around the house this week and between myself and a contractor, we got the barn back to nearly square. I got most of the scrap metal loaded ready to haul to town, and my Fasse valve figured out on my new to me loader tractor. Jessie is heading to College Station Texas to attend Texas A and M. Her dream is small animal vet to start with and maybe add large animals once she gets established. I have never met a more determined person!!

  35. Finally got the chance to run the 14 in the field. Pulled my 365 vibra tine 6mph with ease. Not a single leak. Ran cool. Just flawless except for the last pass when the left brake started to drag and got hot. I have had that thing apart 5-6 times and fooled with it. Really thought I had it this time but after 32 acres it got hot. Go figure. Otherwise it passed with flying colors!

  37. Someone hand dug this well and stone lined the sides. Picture doesn't do it justice. I moved the cover back just a little to get a peak in. It is probably 6ft across. Water level is at 17ft down and rushing in. I ran my 30ft tape down it today and didn't hit bottom. I'm guessing this was done some time in the mid 1800s? If anyone can dispute the timeline I would love to hear. My understanding is they would bail water as they dug until the water came in fast enough that they couldn't bail it. Anyone have any pics of theirs?
