  1. I took the time to mount a frond end on to the ol girl to make it so I could move it. Just excited to mate up some things that belong on the front of it!! Found a part number on the front cover of the trans that provides some proof on this thing! also it has a longer input than the magnums like the 50 series so no stub shaft is needed. Progress will be slow with planting around the corner,but thought id post these. this summer I have a rough 5488 with a late 466 and inline pump with water in the oil to overhaul for a doner to this special unit.

  2. I was changing clothes to go to the shop this morning at Silver Creek, and was buck naked when the doorbell rang twice. By the time I got there in a decent manner no one was there, but there was a parcel on the step! I opened the screen door and brought it in. What the heck could it possibly be? The return address was from Travis Nelson, Minot, North Dakota. I didn't recognize that name. When I got a bunch of wrapping off of it, I found an ebay packing slip, which really got my curiosity going. When I opened the package, it had a 1968 International Harvester wall calendar, from Bourke Motor & Implement Co. Lewistown, Montana no less!!! I remember when those calendars came out but didn't keep one. I likely used it like a calendar and then threw it away when January 1969 rolled around? By that time (1968), I'd bought two new IH things . A 1967 1100 4X4 pickup and an IH 806 Wheatland Special. And this 806 was an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm! I found a special place to hang it at the Silver Creek shop. And wall space is extremely limited! Thank you sooooooooo much Mr. Nelson or Russtred from Red Power Magazine Forum, right here. I photographed the cover and two months, January and February, to give you an idea of the fabulous things inside! Thank you again, Travis! I'll be dropping you a line soon. Ever appreciative, Old Binder Guy aka Gary?

  3. I have a serious spending problem. Got a call to do some work on a revolver. When I picked it up It looked very very suspicious. Like...a movie gun. Like maybe a 1-100 made Uberti Expendables replica revolver. Told the guy I wanted it. Sooo. I'm going to get it tomorrow. Stock photo included.

  5. Anson, you forgot GREASY! So far 58# of grease/dirt have been scrapped off that tractor . . . and that is only a start. Maybe I should box it up and send it back up to Ralph in Canada where the tractor spent its working life. All kidding aside, the boarder patrol would not let a tractor like this come into the USA today until it was pressure washed and cleaned. I don't know what side of the boarder had the issue, but there have been two cases that I know of, where antique tractors couldn't cross until they were cleaned up. Gary, my tractor is a 1919 Model H 16-30 Rumely Oil Pull and was originally sold in Canada. It has a cast plate on the side showing where they were sold in Canada and also one on the engine that shows that while being built in LaPorte, Indiana USA, it is also covered by Canadian patents.

  7. Well drove the Allis around the house yesterday and it sounded like a two cylinder John Deere but hey it ran and that was a start from when I got it. Well I thought the reason it sounded like that was the muffler was leaking because you could shake it back and fourth. Bought a new muffler but had to make a plate to bolt it to the manifold because it didn’t have it. Went to Napa and got a set of plugs and plug wires. Went to change them today and was looking at the distributor cap and was like it looks like the firing order is wrong. The people I got it from had the firing order 1234. 1234!! Never have I ever seen a vehicle with a inline firing order. That explains the popping and backing firing. Changing the muffler due to the old one being able to be shook.

  8. Thanks so much for that identification Roger. And I got the ID for Sharon's Grandpa's 16-30 H Rumely Oilpull as well! Thanks for that ID by email. I really appreciate being able to update the photos in my files. Here is Jeff Simpson's 16-30 H. I'm guessing this is the same Rumely Oilpull, Roger? This was Jeff Simpson's oldest son, who had gone on to farm for himself. I think he got a good deal from his dad when his dad got the new "lightweight." This is Ralph Simpson and his oldest son Ward. This is the Lightweight Rumely Oilpull Jeff got after the 16-30 H. Maybe you can identify this one as well, Roger? No problem if you can't. Thanks again, Gary?

  10. They were close, firing order is 1243. Those Stanley mufflers should come with all the mounting equipment. I bought one once, had to go back to get the mount. Store was good about it, let me have the stuff with no hassle.

  11. So of course. There is a temporary ammo shortage right now. And ive argued for this for quite sometime. But you need to consider collecting inexpensive guns in less common cartridges. Or just collecting multiple cartridges. In times like this. I will still be able to sport shoot because ammo that is less used is still available. I have the big three. 9x19. 40 short and weak. And 45 almost fast enough. Buttt. I also keep other guns on loadout ready for carry in case like now. Military and LEO and Idiots have shorted us on ammo. I have 25acp. 22tcm. 32acp. 9x18. 7.62x25. 38spl. 357 mag. 460 rowland. 10mm. 44special. 44mag. You can almost always find these anywhere. Most in inexpensive chamberings. Just something to consider in the future. You can pick up a makarov for 200$ at most gun shops and continue to 1. Defend yourself. 2 protect your home. And 3. Continue to sport shoot. Just some ramblings from a young guy.

  13. If it's anything like here don't go. Haven't seen a 300 dollar gun sell here for less than 350 at auction in some time. Couple of years ago guys bid a Henry .22 that was beat up over 150 dollars over the new price in a small gun shop. Rick

  16. I had this in my email when I returned from Mike's shop today. This is Roger's Rumely Oilpull. It looks like it is ready to paint. Original Green? Is that a 20-40 G Oilpull, Roger? I can't identify the smaller ones. Gary?

  17. Yup, I gave Gary a stern lecture on leaving that TT truck of his . . . as it is! A decent ORIGINAL antique car/truck/tractor is very rare now days. Most have been restored in some form and that's fine, but the few remaining originals should , in my opinion, be preserved in their "work clothes". That truck wears its history very well . . . why not let it show that history instead of covering it up with shinny paint that will just deteriorate over the coming years? I'm sure all of us have seen those cars/tractors/trucks with old shabby re-paints. These pieces of mechanical history are only original once, if they a decent examples, why not leave them that way? They can always be redone in the future, but they can never go back to being original. I have fully restored machinery in my collection and I'm proud of them, but I also have several originals. I've generally rebuilt the originals mechanically as necessary with but leave them in their "work clothes". I'm in the process now of doing that to a 1919 Rumely Oil Pull. I've had to replace and machine some parts with new castings along with rebuilding shafts, bearings, ect as needed. I even dig through buckets of old bolts to find era correct ones and age the new castings and metal to match the rest of the tractor. OK it's not for everyone, but Gary's truck the way it is now, is worth more than if it was restored and there would be more guys interested in buying it.

  18. Rust it’s not the serial number. I can’t find a serial number on the engine anywhere. Shouldn’t it be under #1 plug? I was talking about the raised number on the casting being ground off (first picture is the best one I have of that). The exhaust was not covered when they stored it because the bugs where all inside the manifold and the combustion chambers. The head studs are a serious issue and you’re right I may have to pull the engine if it comes to that. ExSW yes that is a really nice two door Laredo. It’s about as mint a car as you will ever see. It belongs to a friend. Any ideas on new studs? Can I have them made?

  19. Got the fast hitch cleaned up and painted last week. I think it really pops with the fresh paint on the drawbar to! Pretty soon I will pull the wheel weights off and clean and paint them. After that I guess we have to wrestle the wheel centers off so I can paint them. Then we will be done with the painting I believe.
