  1. Interesting article on Harold Sohner's 1927 Farmall Regular-------------including list of serial numbers by year and month, and specifications http://www.tractorfriends.org/farmtractors/haroldsregular/haroldstractor.html I am impressed with all of the information included in the above link. Mr. Sohner (superintendent in the 100,000th Farmall picture below) was Harold Sohner's grandfather's brother. And----------apparently the grandfather worked in the Farmall plant also. (hoping I don't have the generations out of step) Does anyone know Harol

  2. Farmall 400 Diesel, my first restoration project. Rebuilt engine, clutch, TA, and electrical. Was quite a project but rewarding when complete.

  3. FarmallMMark posted these two pictures showing umbrellas on horse drawn implements under the Farmall Regular thread-----pictures are from Wisconsin Historical Society site. Thought they were worthy of posting here on our old codgers site. Looks as if that "could be in Montana"?? I see the horses are pushing the binder--------we discussed this subject several years ago. Seems like the Professor wrote an article for some magazine along these lines?? Sure are two scenic pictures. DD

  4. Second night in a row in the shop until after 1am. Radiator is back on, hood, gas tank, nose cone, and battery box have been wet sanded. Broke through the color in a few spots so I decided they will all get one final coat of color. Also got the rear rims stripped, cleaned, masked and ready for repaint.

  6. I'll admit I have trouble buying shirts with long enough sleeves :-) Delta, you have started a "selfie storm" here but sometimes it is good to see the face behind the profile. Although some of us are best seen in low light situations (me):-) Re the 2090 Case, having owned it since 1980 and being able to shed it most nights , it makes a difference to the appearance. Although I'm slipping this spring as it has been hitched to an implement most of the spring seeding season and not able to get indoors. Just turned 8000 hours a month ago. Like OBG's pickup, I'm guessing this one will last me a

  7. I sorta think Ralph and Gary have some extensions on their arms?? Either my arms or too short or my vision is too long for these "professional grade" selfies?? Regardless-----my scowl looks more "grumpy" than Roger's. That counts for something!!!😨 Good thing about going to the scrap yard---------you definitely don't have to dress up. DD

  8. Since it's National Selfie Day, I found this one of Roger Byrne. They are scarce in my files. And I know he's not the type to post one. Gary😀 (I put a smiley face here. That is too hard to catch on Roger with a camera.)

  9. I only wear the bucket hat when fly fishing but I fit in with Ralph that way and it made for a good selfie.

  11. RE: National selfie day I don’t know if I’ve ever put my picture on RPF before but I suppose this is the day to do it. I’m grilling tonight( I know, last month was Beef Month). My second son (freshman) has a couple friends over tonight. My wife, wanting to be a good host, got some special meat out. A whole beef loin, sliced 1/4” thick. Excellent when grilled, slap some on a bun and put some A-1 sauce on it. Of course, the guy grilling also has the task of eating the little pieces that fall off and aren’t really worth putting on the plate with the rest of the meat. 😋 The 5488 is an

  12. Nice hats guys. I was wearing my grungy old camo hat when I shot this "seeding selfie" about a month ago. Not even an IH tractor this time but the 2090 Case pulling the 50 foot packer harrow.

  14. Really don't know that my wife would be that helpful Roger-----but I appreciate your help. I encountered a major stroke in 1998 (should have killed me dead in my tracks). After some recovery time, the neurologist had just finished some extensive tests on me-----and proclaimed that there was nothing wrong with my brain. My dear wife immediately replied: "well you sure can't prove that by me!!!!" Damm !!!!😨 ****** I may ship my "QUAKE" hard hat up to you and have you paint some blue pin stripes on it (give it that official steam engineer's look). Do you feel up to

  15. Fixing the ill fitting replacemnet radiator this morning. Lower support bracket was almost 1/2" wider that the frame of the tractor. When we test fit the grill the bottoms were splayed out alot, also due to the way the lower support was originally welded. You couldn't tighten down the bolts without wrinkling the sheetmetal.
