    One of the things that attracted me to this forum is this great group of like minded strangers that will give free guidance on anything from IH and CIH, along with numerous other farm, rural, and outdoor related topics. Even if I dont post i enjoy reading almost daily and get a great education from our forum experts. Recently some members have taken to attacking people whonare simply asking a question or looking for that same guidance that I have been given. I feel like this drives others away and keeps the experts from replying. Who wants to ask a question only to insulted or attacked? This recent trend is very disappointing. Why in the world would anyone want to turn someone away from sharing in our passion for IH? If you dont have anything nice to say maybe it is better to say nothing at all. I know this post is probably inappropriate but thanks for listening...

    We went to oldest granddaughters senior class awards banquet and music concert tonight. 60 kids in her graduating class so the gym was packed. They did the usual athletic awards, scholarships for various things etc. Came time for granddaughter and her awards were given by the music instructor..... he told about her 4.0 GPA, taking college courses, community volunteer, going to be a doctor etc. Grandpa's chest was getting puffed up. Then he said...."She told me today that she could not go to the band contest this weekend. It's probably the biggest contest of the year so I was naturally upset. I was a bit gruff and asked her why..... he paused because he was starting to tear up...and then he said ..she told me she had national guard duty this weekend." With that the entire gymnasium stood and gave her a standing ovation. She started bawling the band instructor was hugging her, her classmates were hugging her, her dad was grinning from ear to ear and wiping tears, grandma was digging for kleenex. And me.... all that clapping must have stirred up a lot of dust... and you know how my eyes water around dust. Wish I could have counted the people who came up to her just to say thank you. I'm not wanting to get political, but when those people stood up and clapped for grandpas little girl.... I was damn PROUD to be an AMERICAN.

    I have been trying to get this finished up all winter , to darn much snow to deal with and just got back to it the last couple days . My dealer had used AC compressor, lines , bracket , condenser , hooked it all up to the new cab . This cab is new and come out of Engineering near as I can tell it was built 5/87 was the dates on the wiring harness , there is no sn plate and not sure what they did with it other than I think it might of been used for training ? Today when I was working on the flashers I pulled the cab air filter out and got a smile on my face , it had an IH air filter and it's never been used 😊 I have the cab deals coming and have to do some painting and she should be ready for the field .

    Hey guys I spotted this tractor 10 years ago while out looking at land we would later auction. This tractor has 3,910 original hours on it. The book has the date when it was purchased and where. Anyway it was ordered without a pto which kind of made sense in west river South Dakota at the time. Anyway here is some pics. I literally gave it a 2 minute wax job on one hood. Crazy story is the owner remembers exactly the last time he used it. September 11th 2001....seeding oats when he heard the twin towers were hit. Always shedded and started every year. Doesn't even have hood wear from the cab.

    Saw this pic on Facebook of a local 81 year old farmer, He lives about 3 miles from us and still farms about 1200 acres. Just thought it was a neat pic of him and his 1979 white with the old V8 engine, the tractor is used every year for tillage and he still does most of his own work.

    So my 3 year old wanted a red tractor cake, so we went to dq to get one, they said legally they could not because John deere paid them so that if they ever have an equipment or farm related cake it had to be John deere, it kinda made me mad, when I said then just make me a red and white cake they said no, they said since i mentioned tractors they had to put green on the cake, so when i got home i modified it, i hope i do t get in trouble for posting the picture but my boy sure thought it was funny

    Son in law, daughter, wife and I were talking. Son in law pointed out that a Magnum power shift would be almost as good a snow blower tractor as a hydro with the really low reverse speeds the Magnums can do. My daughter tells my son in law he has to get rid of 2 tractors before he gets another tractor and right away my wife tells me the same thing. Now this is where my wife thought I cheated. I told her fine! Then told my son in law the 2 8Ns are yours! I looked at my wife and said OK I just got rid of 2 tractors. Then I told my son in law to give one of the 8Ns to each of 2 11 year old girls, both my grand daughters, his daughter and my oldest boy's daughter! That way I got rid of 2 tractors I was getting rid of anyway and he got rid of 2 tractors he didn't want in the first place🤣! That way he and I can each buy another tractor! My wife hates my new math!😈 Rick

    If I could just step into this picture with a camera and my checkbook Id be in second heaven for sure, I will say one thing about this IH dealer in Aberdeen, Ms. he sho duz must have one heckava regional representative cause he has a bunch of new big tractors fresh from Rock Island sitting there and this is in 1971 just after they hit production, its ya or use to be your region man who youd tell what you needed to have shipped to your dealership but to have that many new ones and right after they were introduced tells me he was one well established dealer with outstanding sales. But aint this just the picture. O BTW that new 656 is correct it was still in production cause the 666 didnt come out till 1972

    After watching the SOTU, I can say that we truly have a President again we can be proud of. He knocked it out of the park. The WORST, disgusting moment was when he said "America will NEVER be a socialist country" and everyone stood up and some even cheered EXCEPT for the far left loons!!! Everyone should remember those faces of the anti-constitutional COWARDS that stayed seated and vote there pathetic *sses out!! What a disgrace to our Military and the THOUSANDS who have died for OUR freedoms we enjoy and sadly take for granted at times! I'm truly embarrassed the world had to see such traitorous actions! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! and our gutsy President!!!

    One dark night outside a small town in Minnesota, a fire started inside the local chemical plant and in a blink of an eye it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around. When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company president rushed to the fire chief and said, "All our secret formulas are in the vault in the center of the plant. They must be saved. I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact." But the roaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon more fire departments had to be called in as the situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire department who could bring out the company's secret files. From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby Norwegian rural township volunteer fire company composed mainly of Norwegians over the age of 65. To everyone's amazement, that little run-down fire engine roared right past all the newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant. Without even slowing down it drove straight into the middle of the inferno. Outside, the other firemen watched as the Norwegian old timers jumped off right in the middle of the fire fought it back on all sides. It was a performance and effort never seen before. Within a short time, the Norske old timers had extinguished the fire and had saved the secret formulas. The grateful chemical company president announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave fire fighters. The local TV news reporter rushed in to capture the event on film, asking their chief, "What are you going to do with all that money?" "Vell," said Ole Larsen, the 70-year-old fire chief, "Da first thing ve gonna do is fix da brakes on dat focking truck!

    A farmer had 5 female pigs. Times were hard, so he decided to take them to the county fair and sell them. At the fair, he met another farmer who owned 5 male pigs. After talking a bit, they decided to mate the pigs and split everything 50/50. The farmers lived 60 miles apart, so they decided to drive 30 miles each morning and find a field in which to let the pigs mate. The first morning, the farmer with the female pigs got up at 5 a.m., loaded the pigs into the family station wagon (the only vehicle he had) and drove the 30 miles. While the pigs were in the field mating, he asked the other farmer, “How will I know if they are pregnant?” The other farmer replied, “If they’re lying in the grass tomorrow morning, they’ll be pregnant. If they’re lying in the mud, they’re not.” The next morning the pigs were rolling in the mud. So he hosed them off, loaded them into the family station wagon again and proceeded to try again. This continued each morning for more than a week and the farmers were worn out. The next morning, one was too tired to even get out of bed. So he called out to his wife, “Honey, please look outside and tell me whether the pigs are in the mud or in the grass.” “Neither,” yelled his wife, “They’re in the station wagon. And one of them is honking the horn.”

    "A young man with his pants hanging half off his rear, two gold front teeth, and a half inch thick gold chain around his neck, walked into the local welfare office to pick up his check. He marched up to the counter and said, "Hi. You know, I just HATE drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job. I don't like taking advantage of the system, getting something for nothing." The social worker behind the counter said "Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful daughter. You'll have to drive around in his 2018 Mercedes-Benz GT, and he will supply all of your clothes." "Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll also be expected to escort the daughter on her overseas holiday trips. This is rather awkward to say, but you will also have, as part of your job, the assignment to satisfy her sexual urges as the daughter is in her mid-20's and has a rather strong sex drive." The guy, just plain wide-eyed, said, "You're bull-shittin' me!" The social worker said, "Yeah, well . . . You started it . . . . “

    New to red power, the 1456 in the first pic is with my grandma with the 14 after it was painted around 1990. It is the first big tractor I ever ran, i was so young I had to use 2 feet to push the clutch down . My uncle ended up with it and after years of wanting it i made a deal to trade my restored 886 for it since he wanted a cabed tractor that was a little more modern. After I got it I put a belly tank on it that I only paid 170 bucks for and will be picking up a cat 2 and 3 original quick hitch for it today. I rebuilt the front end and will be doing a head gasket soon, also I will be putting the long 118" axles on it with 5088 wheel castings and 10 bolt wedge hubs, the 1206 wheatland you see is not a true wheatland, its about 4 tractors put together, 806 farmall 1206 farmall and 1206 wheatland, I would never sell it as a true wheatland it's just for me cause it was cheaper this way, if you look close the 656 does have a black dash, that will be restored gold with an ice cream cab and hopefully belly tank, the 450 was my first project tractor, back when I couldn't afford diesels, it had a turbo and was set up to look like a baby 1206, and last the pickup has a 6bt Cummins with 5 speed nv4500. Just thought I would share some pics and maybe get to know people on hear,

    I posted this topic because I wanted to share to those who didn`t know about this GRAND undertaking of building this beautiful ark. It is certainly an act that took great ambition/funding/planning/permits and belief in God. Maybe someone will build a shrine for those who don`t believe in a higher power for the rest. Don`t turn this into a pi$$ing contest. If you aren`t on board with it`s purpose, go read another topic. God is good all the time.
