    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...

    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

    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.

    I hear what your saying , some days I just have to not say anything . It's fun for me to help you guys with your projects and like Jerry says I have done this for many years too . Growing up on the farm and working at IH and Case IH and a fuel shop for many years really helps answer a lot of your questions . I would never try and steer any of you down a road that won't fix the problem , I have seen answers given on stuff you guys are fixing and just shake my head . The last thing I want to do is start a fight over who is right or wrong , some days I just send a PM to the original poster and answer there question so it don't start a fight . Thanks BJ and the Meisners for this site . Danny

    With internet forums, as with so much of life, a person needs the “combine harvester” approach. Not everything that goes in the head of a combine ends up in the grain tank, only the good stuff if things are working right. The rest get blown out the back. Same thing with internet forums. Take in what is useful, ignore the rest.

    My friend Tom (goes by Fish), who delivers for the lumber yard that I trade with, helped rescue a boy who was trapped in a plane that had just crashed. Last week, he was making a delivery with the big flatbed and saw the plane go down, evidently trying to land on the county road due to engine failure of some sort. The plane ended up inverted, and a grandpa and grandma in their early sixties and their six year old grandson were in the plane. The boy was trapped in the plane due to being strapped in to a car seat, and fuel was starting to leak, so Fish got the Moffett off his truck and was able to lift the plane enough to get the boy out. Three or four other people happened along to help, and pulled the boy out of the plane. One of them was a cop who'd just gone off duty. Grandparents and boy hospitalized but alive. Haven't heard how they're doing. Right place, right time. And I don't believe in coincidences.

    An old tired-looking dog wanders into a guy's yard. He examines the dog's collar and feels his well-fed belly and knows the dog has a home.The dog follows him into the house, goes down the hall, jumps on the couch, gets comfortable and falls asleep. The man thinks its rather odd, but lets him sleep. After about an hour the dog wakes up, walks to the door and the guy lets him out. The dog wags his tale and leaves. The next day the dog comes back and scratches at the door. The guy opens the door, the dog comes in, goes down the hall, jumps on the couch, gets comfortable and falls asleep again. The man lets him sleep. After about an hour the dog wakes up, walks to the door and the guy lets him out. The dog wags his tale and leaves. This goes on for days. The guy grows really curious, so he pins a note on the dog's collar: "Your dog has been taking a nap at my house every day." The next day the dog arrives with another note pinned to his collar: "He lives in a home with four children -- he's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?'

    I got the call the other day about reducing credit card interest...... So I played along and said okay. I get transferred from the recording to the live person who spoke in broken English they start asking me questions about whether I had much credit card debt so I proceeded to say I don't have a credit card I get all my money from My Cousin Vinny he said if I don't pay him back he break my kneecaps Really bothered me that they hung up on me . They call me and then hang up on me while I was willing to talk to them

    Agreed! I sometimes feel the need to apologize to new members at times over some of the responses. At times what may be a stupid question that can be found in the owners manual or a quick search history of red power, gets a combative or obtuse response. To us nuts that follow every day it seems a silly question but to a new owner that doesn’t have a manual yet they don’t know yet. I like to look at these kinds of questions like this: if it weren’t for poeple asking questions that need help what would we talk about? Things would get boring and our senior knowledgeable guys won’t visit. I also agree this is one of the best forums a person could ask for. This is why I’m proud to encourage people to swing by and join when I meet a fellow red tractor nut in the world. I have asked many many people to check us out, join redpower, subscribe to the magazine. It’s cool

    Unfortunately some people just have to be that way. While I have had the same thoughts at times about a few people, I know that some of these instances come about because there is no emotion in written word. Certain things are easy to take with different intention than the poster meant. There are other times that what is written. Is exactly what was meant and it was not called for or warranted. The people that do these things very rarely see their own fault. We can only hope that these people will see that fault and take steps to change. For every bad apple there are many good ones. Please don’t take the bad as a cross section of the whole bunch. Thanks for your opinion and don’t feel it is out of line. (In my opinion that is)

    Before I had a car with any horses under the hood and needed to "impress".. used to flip the top of the air cleaner upside down to give everyone the "4 barrel" impression on my 283 2V... had a second tailpipe attached to my 54 Ford Custom with the 232 6 cyl. The tailpipe trick didn`t fool them in the winter though... sigh.

    My co-pilot (2+2 Guy) and I left my house at 4:30 this morning. I had to borrow a trailer as mine is buried at the storage facility and I can't get it until May. So I asked my cousin's husband if I use his and he agreed. So the first stop was to pick up the trailer. We got on the road to Matt's about 5 and arrived just before nine. Getting ready to load... Loading up.. Che Checking things over... C All chained down and heading out! The drive back home was uneventful. I didn't want to try to back the trailer into our driveway so I opted to unload at at large open lot about a mile from my house. When we tried to start the tractor we found the batteries were low and couldn't turn it over. John's truck, with a jumper pack inside, was at my house so I called my mom to come get us. She was about a half hour away. Once we got back with John's truck we were finally able to get the tractor to start. Here we are finally back home. Turning into my driveway I found some tree branches.... After carefully maneuvering around the branches I parked it in the barn.

    Rather than hijack Lorenzo's thread I thought I would start a new one since Delta Dirt was asking for more pictures of Nebraska. These were from my time working and having fun on a northeast Nebraska farm, ranch, and feedyard. Nebraska isn't all corn and flatland. I'm of the opinion that I lived in the best part of Nebraska. Close to the sandhills, cropland, rolling hills, some flatland, and rugged hills around the town of Center. It was a nice mix A true harvest moon The beginnings of the storm that developed the tornado that destroyed Pilger, Nebraska. We were AIing south of Newport. Place my wife and I lived. A random dust storm rolling in from the west.

    You need to take your own advice. It seems to me that you do have good mechanical knowledge. However the way you rely that knowledge to people who do not have it, could stand to be improved. The whole reason this forum exists is to share and grow the knowledge of its participants. No one is forcing you to stay here. Sincerely, BJ Kline Moderator Red Power Magazine

    Free speech is different from respecting each other. Im not saying go hug your enemy but if we want people to continue to use this forum they need to have good experiences. Also, I really wasnt referring to political threads. Those are the enter if you dare and according to the rules really shouldnt be on here anyway. When some guy has a question about a clutch and is told he shouldnt of bought the tractor or when someone has the dreaded oil capacity question and is esentially told they are an idiot are examples of my concerns. Insulting new members who stumbled onto the forum and the responses from our panel of experts is just wrong. There is nothing wrong with jabbing about the usefullness of a Ford N series vs a Farmall letter series. America was built on competition.

    Your DUCK IS DEAD A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away." The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?" "Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet.. "How can you be so sure?" she protested.. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something." The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room. The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck." The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.. The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$1,500!" she cried,"$1,500 just to tell me my duck is dead!" The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $1,500."
