  5. Anson, Roger's Blue Smoke is really going to get up after I post this photo from today. Don't faint, Roger and Anson... And if you're eating around chicken bones, or drinking a liquid, don't choke or spit out. Randy, me and Mike, with their 20 hp Reeves steam engine fired up. We did this today. We sawed firewood. And we reground some corn for the chickens. This coming September I will have been operating steam engine for 65 years. This sign was always my philosophy. Gary? PS: While I was waiting for the steam pressure to rise in this "choo choo" or as some call it "a train," I took this selfie.

  8. Jeff, I haven't had time to respond to your post. Thanks! I'll come back here when I get some time and answer how the hoses are on the cab. We're not happy with them yet. We have to change it somehow, but not sure how. Would have been 100 times better if the valve had gotten centrally mounted and cable driven. To anyone wanting to upgrade one of these, that would strongly be my suggestion. So, I'm not 100% done, but here is a video tour. Obviously needs the decals, and some other things wrapped up. A/C isn't cold enough yet either. Has 4.5lbs in it, but I don't like my pressures. Honestly I think the control switch just might be bad. I have an AC reclamation machine, so I can add or subtract until it's right. More pictures and videos to come. It's drying out here! Cutting wheat snd side dressing corn now. Enjoy the tour!

  12. Went camping for few days up to the frozen tundra of Penticton BC. Lots of history stuff. Such open country...took 2 hr to take the 1 back road we found with me and the dads. Pretty area for sure. We really should of fought for 54*40".. Never seen one of these. Like a old Scrambler but 56k!! Play area..just behind me was main highway. Kinda loud but decent place. Next time we'll have to ask for spot farther back. But we went during Peach city cruise. 450 cars plus...very high quality rigs in land there. This 57 was just right, blown big block power. The Impala was from WA (1.5 hr...for us it was 4.5) full chassis on air. He wanted 50k but not sure it was there. Froots by the lake...must be feral kids.. Seen this neat old chev van. Dont see em often. For some reason I've wanted a van last few months. 0 sense..never owned one in my life. Wash up takes as much time as trip i swear. Rained some so grimmie. And if you take decent care of a rv it last. Dont do much they dont last much. Realized i have not washed my car for over 20 years! Runs pretty good finally. Needs Alt though. And floors. And rust repair. And tires. And headliner. And new posi. And new rear bumper. And polished frt bumper. And shocks. And frame bushings. ............

  17. If you followed my other topics this one is logically in-line, here comes another orchard topic. Brother and I purchased this 1949 O4 last fall from the original farm/owners grand children. We have been friends with the family as long as I can remember. I'm not going call this a restoration thread yet as we are mainly mechanically assessing and fixing first. We are in no rush on this project and anticipate this one taking several years. Just from assessing its condition we know it is extremely well used and has performed more than it's fair share of work in it's lifetime. The tractor was missing the operator cowling and the side curtains. We knew of a set of side curtains for sale some what locally and purchased them right after we brought the tractor home. A few weeks later I located a cowling. Kind of cart before the horse but had to jump on the hard to find parts as they were available. Any chance of getting it running was quickly squashed as a hole in the manifold allowed water to destroy two intake valve seats, stuck several valves and 4 of 8 push rods were mangled. But, the motor was not seized and the cylinders look as if the were run yesterday. After taking off the rear wheels and the belt pulley unit we quickly found out any and all bearings in this transmission were history. Mice also did a number on the clutch completely filling the bell housing with a nest.

  18. In the early1970s, just out of the Army, I spent a few seasons in the plant bed, patch, barn, and stripping room. For a lot of the folks, the November sales made for Christmas money. Small ownerships and sharecroppers relied on the fall cash. It was hard, dirty work as I recall.

  19. Wondering if the top picture is not an experimental model??? (noting front wheels, no brake lever----appears to be short pto lever on left side (?; and what appears to be a reduction drive on the hand crank starting shaft???) Never have seen that type starting drive before. Wish I had one of those flannel air intakes to hang on the wall. (reckon they were one step better than nothing) What type of air filter does your Stroud have Fred? DD

  21. J-Mech 45 and 47 got 855 big cam transplants, dad did the 47 previous owner for the 45. 47 has 24.5 by 32. All need some TLC for the Cabs. so once i find a donor i am going to start redoing a cab, might have a lot of question for you. Your rebuild looks awesome. Hope ours looks close when i am done.

  23. Anson, The tractor was made in 1919 in San Antonio, TX. Here's a photo of the Stroud tractor from the book 'Standard Catalog of Farm Tractors 1890-1980' by C. H. Wendel, and also a photo of my Stroud. I'm not sure what Wendel meant by saying Stroud did not put the features into practice because I have one of the tractors to prove it. My father said the Fisher brothers back in the 20s farmed just north of Robstown Tx had two of them. I've talked with a grandson and he knows nothing. Said he would get in touch with me if he ever found something out. The tractors were designed by W. C. Rarig who also worked for the Taft Ranch in San Patricio County, the county adjoining mine (Nueces) to the north. I've got a copy of the book "The Taft Ranch: A Texas Principality" by A. Ray Stephens. Rarig also invented, in 1909, a root plow to turn the soil efficiently after surface vegetation was cleared. It was forged by Alamo Iron Works in San Antonio, Texas. It had 3 giant plow bottoms. Anyway, the Stroud I have, I cannot find the serial number on it anywhere but I'm saying they made at least 3 of them. I still haven't gotten around to working up an article on the tractor. '''

  28. Dry hay figure 100# to the foot. Straw, 7.5' in my baler I just figure 450# bale. That's what they averaged when I sold them this past February/March. Guy who hauled my straw for the buyer, has a baler he said he gets 500# out of his but makes them 8' long.

  29. We ran our 4x4x8 on a MFD Magnum with duals. Still have to be careful with the hills as I have been pushed some anyways

  30. Good day right there. Since I have no idea, what does a solid dry bale like that weigh? Does dry hay require use of the preservative when it's packed like that? I've heard some say they use it here.

  31. Our 806 dynoed a fair amount higher than that,. 856 has a turbo too, so I'm aware that yes they are. But around here I've not seen a big baler behind anything that was not modern and massive, is what I was saying. They aren't doing dry hay though.

  33. In good dry hay and no huge hills 130hp bout as low I would go. Probably the reason why you see alot of the bigger tractors on is mainly stability and you sit alot higher and can see the top of the baler, not necessary for the horsepower. I had a 3688 on that baler one year and a 7220. Been putting the 340 on it the last couple years. So much nicer to run the baler with. Me and a friend used to own a Hesston 4755 around 10 years ago. I always put the 3688 on when I was using it and he put his 4450 2--wd on and we got along fine. My 3688 had 130 hp from non-authorized adjustment of the pump lol! One time I was baling hay with the Hesston going up a pretty steep hill and it was like I had a 5 bottom plow behind it. Had the traction, not the power.

  34. How much hp and weight does it take to run one of those? A lot, I imagine. I've never been around one but the onesie seen at a distance were all hooked to modern, massive, 200-250hp.

  36. Late to read this. Interesting. The very last 1600's had the large sieve bushings and long sieves. The 44/66/88 had many of the updates used on the 2100 series including the splined unload auger(one piece) and the pfc hyd system. I was at the Case IH trade fair when they introduced the 2100 series. The auditorium was completely dark and BAM! They turned on the stadium lights on three combines. I got the same shivers as when I was sitting in the theater as a kid when the first few notes of the Star Wars theme song was played. Still have the dealer edition combine they handed out.
