  1. Have you seen this one? Moving this huge splitter for the oil and gas industry in Alberta. It was 800 tons and almost 100 m long

  3. Now what do i do with it. I've just purchased the Mogul pictured below and still can't believe it. I've dreamed of owning this dragon since i was a kid. My father owned it briefly in 1954 then sold it back to the original owner's grandson when he moved to FL. Dad said he got it running just long enough to run it maybe a couple hundred yards. It was again parked in a barn where it sat until we pulled it out last Saturday. The engine is loose and from the looks of it there's a good bit of original paint under the grease. the serial number puts it toward the end of the production run in 1917 according to Tractordata.com. The plan is to get it running and conserve the 'finish' as is. I believe I've seen the phrase 'left in it's work clothes' used in these pages. what i could use is some advice if anyone has any. Of course, it would be perfect if someone has written the definitive work on rebuilding a 1917 Mogul 8-16. Barring that, I would be happy to see someone's greasy notes. Or a phone call with stories, warnings, and encouragement. what are the special pitfalls with this particular tractor as well as technology of this age in general? Such as "...and above all, when you go into the bottom end be damn sure to clean the slinger or it'll never see more than 30 minutes on the first run". At least that was good advice when working on BMW motorcycles from the 60's. Otherwise I'll start into it as anything else, taking plenty of pictures than begin to take it apart. for starters, what's the best way to remove 100 yr old caked on grease w/o damaging underlying paint or driving it into places it shouldn't go? I look forward to any knowledge imparted. The man to the left in the second photo is my father while the fellow in the background is the grandson of the original purchaser of the tractor and the one that sold it to me.

  6. That is pretty unbelievable. I have seen one pulling and one pushing the double trailers (look like they were two normal flatbed trailers tied side by side somehow) moving oil field stuff on 83 through Nebraska. BUT, nothing near that size like in QC's post. Took some engineering and talented people to get everyone dancing the same dance steps.

  9. A little update on our great granddaughter, Haven. She's grown in intelligence obviously. She knows her tractors already! She's eating a lot on her own, however she's still hooked up to her tube at night. They're testing her mommy for MS at the University of Washington Medical Center, where I was operated on. Our daughter Michaelle has been living with them, and taking care of the little kids, Haven and brother Colt. A picture of Haven standing, wanting to take off! Colt is watching her. This is my new Facebook cover photo; Haven outside with toys. Gary?

  10. Safari in Zimbabwe. This reservoir was full of hippos. They run on the bottom and leave a bubble trail that comes from decaying vegetation. they would run right under the boat! This job has had some great perquisites.
