  1. Just got back from my own fly fishing trip. Tough weather and a new river slowed us down. Limit of 7/day.

  2. Hey, Urs, Thanks for putting the video on of the 75 hp Case threshing. That's neat. And those IH Tractors from a Canadian Farm! Roger... was it turning a little fast? I don't do youtube, so I can't put steam engines on from today. I guess that's what I like about Facebook. If it moves, I add it! Yesterday a friend and I were having coffee and noticed smoke from the Lincoln northeast complex fire, very visible from Silver Creek today. They had slurry bombers going yesterday. This is not the same fire, but different from the one last week that was completely visible from Helena. This is a brand new one. With the summer heat we get dry lightening, and I think that what started this last fire? This was different smoke on Silver Creek, this morning. An engineer in his cap waiting for pressure to build. This wasn't yesterday. This was a demonstration of the DC-10 dumping 10,000 gallons of water near the Helena airport a couple years ago. You'll also notice the head of Helena's "Sleeping Giant" in the background. This is the current DC-10 taking on 10,000 gallons of slurry at the Helena Airport. It is a 20 minute turnaround for this plane. Helena invested in this setup to furnish slurry for fire bombers. It's brand new. It used to take much longer to fill the dump tank. This was the fire about 11:AM this morning from Silver Creek. This was the DC-10 headed back for another tankful, and flying over Silver Creek. This was around noon. The wind was trying to pick up. This was the Lincoln northeast complex fire smoking and the 15 hp Case also smoking at the wood pile about 1:PM. It's small, but I saw this Sikorsky Sky Crane coming to fill it's bucket out of Silver Creek, about a mile above Mike's place this morning. I wish I could show the video I also took at this time when the wind came up and the fire blew up. I took this off of the Case as the fire was blowing up with the strong wind. The old Continental Divide is getting well denuded, west of Mike's place. And I had to take a picture of the Case's "instrument panel." Gary?

  6. Big week for the 14! Spent the week on display with a bunch of other tractors at the county fair. Mostly green ? Then on Saturday had to bring it back home and get it ready with family and neighbors for the tractor pull. The one next to mine is a neighbor's 1066 with a 466 but basically stock. The next one is another neighbor's nice old 10 that my dad painted several years ago. The next one is my dad's 10 painted up like the 5 millionth. The next one is my brother's 5488, obviously pulled in a heavier class. My 1466 won the class! My driver is a high school kid that helps me out on the farm. He did a great job and had a blast.

  8. VERY nice! I can spend hours getting mechanical or wiring systems right, but run outta patience once it works---but find very little time to spend on paint, etc. (There is a reason for that, see later comment). One more suggestion looking at your pictures...I had a lot of trouble with small birds building nests inside the cab air intakes. They would pack the area around the filters with nest material. I tried to pack a plastic bag in the openings while the tractor was sitting, the birds would pull them out shred them, and use them as nest filler! I finally took some coarse stainless steel mesh (cannibalized a wire mesh "basket" from the kitchen) and bent a piece to fill the gap on the bottom of the plastic covers. I used some 4-40SS hardware to bolt it to the covers. End of problem. I'd hate to see a newly cleaned out system get full of that kind of crap. Back when I was in high school & college, I completely tore down and rebuilt our '68 Olds. Family car we had had since '69, lots of memories. I spent a lot of time doing body work, repainting it the OEM blue/green metallic. Finished it over Christmas break, and took it to college my sophomore year. Pulled in to college, dropped of my bags, and drove up to the gym. Guy was pushing snow in the lot...didn't even look...put it in reverse and backed straight into the front of my car. Buckled the hood and bent everything else in the front. I had to find a new hood , bumper, etc, and repaint. Since then, I just have never been able to care enough to put that much work into any car/tractor/etc to make it pretty. (Its just gonna get broken....)

  13. This old codger has been pretty slow for last few days. (I think Gary's boiler repair job last week tired me out all the way down here to Mississippi) Early corn and soybeans are turning fast down this way--------may see some combines in the field late next week. Highly unusual year. Some crops maturing------some being irrigated-----some never planted. And Wrangler sez Hay to everyone. DD

  15. Oh, BTW---I had to laugh at your description of the valve linkage and how you found out "too late" they worked backwards...... When I was much younger, I took a nice deep mower deck off a Case lawnmower that had grenaded, and made a frame to mount it on. I put it on wheels, pivoting on the front, and added a offset tongue. Then I mounted a 12HP vertical shaft motor directly onto it with a short belt directly between the motor and the deck belt pulley. I figured I could pull it off the the side and mow 2 swaths at once! So I get it all made, including battery start and remote controls. Start it up and try it out and....it doesn't mow worth C**P. Thats when I realized that this is a CASE deck that blows to the LEFT---and the blades turn backwards from every other deck on the planet---which means my motor is turning them backwards..... So----I ended up redoing the whole thing: raise the motor, bring the belt out the front around a couple of small pulleys and back under to the deck to reverse rotation. Much more complicated! I used it a couple years (It worked great to mow the ditches.) Worked fine except you had to think ahead...no sharp turns and no backing up! Then my main mower died and we bought a zero turn. Deck is still sitting in the corner of the shop---its hard to throw out the "projects'!
