  2. I purposely changed my PTO lever to the style designed for a cab. I wouldn't mind having another light in the fender either. Good observation about the PTO lever but IMO it doesn't mean it once had a cab. During the last forty years who knows what all has been done to some of these machines.

  3. There is a small group of grease guns but nothing like what you have Gary. Tom, I thought I might also have a gun for you but it isn’t a Case. Just one that was painted orange, maybe so it wouldn’t be lost easily. There are little groups of different things in the Toy House, brass blow torches, gas cans, drill bits, etc. Dad’s weakness was hand tools. Lots of them. Six walls, a cabinet and 18 groups of wrench’s on boards. That’s proof of a problem! ?

  4. Still in Deadhorse white stuff starting again One of the process plants burning off some gas, when ever the incoming flows get upset they can burn gas to eliminate a build up of pressure. It is not very common that’s was probably enough gas to heat every home in my town this winter

  11. No texting, just taking a few pictures is all. Most of these I was stopped by either traffic or small country road with none around so I can stop for a quick snap.

  12. I'll start by posting a few pics of my travels today. The IH with the rake is a 1066???? It doesn't look like much, but it is a different spot each week. This one is up near Aovoca, WI. WI seems to have gotten plenty of rain, from what I hear some places are damn near swept away. This was in Loganville, WI...I know that water ain't supposed to be that high.

  13. I was out at Silver Creek today. I had to check out an upright single cylinder stationary steam engine that was given to Mike by a former teacher at the Vo Tech in Helena. The Vo Tech was going to haul the engine to the scrap yard, for the room in a closet it had inhabited. This teacher asked for it and was given it. He stopped in and caught Mike a week ago Saturday. He knew Mike had steam engines and asked if he'd be interested in this one? The price was right. The gentleman brought it and unloaded it yesterday. Mike felt he should give something, and the guy said NO. So Mike asked his daughter if she'd like to go for a Model T ride. She was elated. She teaches small engines at the Vo Tech and is mechanically inclined. Mike said she was down on all four looking it over underneath and was amazed at the simplicity. Mike, is shown on the TD-40 TracTracTor, beside the Model TT Truck he took this man's daughter for a ride in. And.... That TD-40 is an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm too. This is the Peerless steam engine the gentleman gave Mike. And I looked for my leather handle Estwing hammers, hatchets, etc. I took this first photo of them. The two items with tags, were my dad's. Afterward, I found three more hammers, two ball pein and another claw hammer. So mike started dragging out the rubber handle Estwing hammers. These are the framing and claw hammers. These are the machine hammers. I'm not trying to outdo anyone, but we couldn't control ourselves. Gary?

  14. Running across the field we had to take a detour, they were moving a crane kind of crazy to watch, rig is fully dressed and ready to go. The ramps for loading are on the truck behind it.

  16. Thanks for the instruction card Delta Dirt. I am more then happy to follow along and learn from the masters. I’m just a young whipper-snapper (I’ll be 47 in four days) but seem to like doing things the older way. And maybe a little harder but I feel like the results are better when you get there the long way. I hope I can meaningfully contribute to Gary’s thread. Maybe in the next couple of days I’ll wander out to the Toy House and post a photo of something I don’t know a thing about and isn’t tagged. Lots to choose from. Gary, I had a platoon leader in Iraq the same way as your son. He will be taking command of my former battalion this December. He was also prior enlisted and knew how to work alongside the troops. Your son had a very accomplished career. Here’s my accomplishment for the day. I fanned my meager pile of oats. I think I got nearly as much chaff and weeds as oats. I cut it as short as I could to get the maximum amount of straw. The Bulldog fanning mill did a good job. I kept a drum of the tailings for my chickens and gave the rest to a friend for his birds. Even the leftovers have a purpose. So I don’t get kicked out of class, I used my Farmall M to load the mill into the trailer, which is an IH tractor on a Montana farm.
