  1. Had our annual community club fair this weekend, which includes the FFA ulumni car, truck, and tractor show. I took a few pictures with my phone so apologies if they aren't very good quality. Two of my nephews in their Peterbuilts, my oldest son on the 88 Oliver, youngest son on my 1066, a new firetruck, and a few others.

  2. Since I was "taken" by WWII, I have Montana plates from the late 1930's through 1945. My two favorite WWII Montana plates are the 1942 black and white, with a chunk of restamped, leftover plate and painted red for 1943; the year I was born. They were trying to save metal for the war effort. The 1944 plate is the year my wife was born and it is a soymeal plate in green and white. An old IHC McCormick-Deering salesman in Lewistown, Montana at Bourke Motor & Implement Company, used to frequent farms in hopes of selling equipment, but planned his arrival around 11:AM, hoping the farmer's wife would set an extra plate for him. He stopped at a farm in 1944 and was asked to stay for dinner (not supper!). When he came out, pigs running loose, had eaten the license plates from his vehicle. The 1925 Model TT Truck has a Montana "Pioneer" plate on the front. And a "HOT" radiator cap! On the rear I have the Montana Pioneer plate, a restored 1925 Montana plate, the last year of "whole state" numbering. On the tailgate were four holes that exactly fit my 1943 Montana Truck license plate, holes by the first owner. The 1926 Model T Coupe has a Montana Pioneer plate and a restored 1926 Montana plate on the front. Montana went to "County Numbers" in 1926. County 5- is Helena, Montana, Lewis & Clark County. On the rear is the Montana Pioneer plate and on the spare tire "Y" bracket is my 1943 plate (the year I was born). County 7- is Flathead County at Whitefish-Kalispell. OBG?

  3. Those governor springs will last almost forever, no more that they are being compressed. That loose feeling governor spring is not likely your problem. I've refrained from mentioning the seemingly obvious broken flex ring, because I knew you rebuilt this one several years ago. Injectors in those are very simple and if it's not missing, I'd leave them alone. New parts are hard to come by, and expensive when you do need them. Many times on those, I'll soak the whole thing complete in my carb cleaner bucket, then wash off, and flush them on the pop tester to blow the junk out of them. It's nearly impossible to get them completely drip free, which is likely one of the many reasons those were retired years ago lol!

  4. Tried out my 496 disk behind my 1456 and turbo was a no go. Had it rebuilt. Also threw on new water pump. Always something.

  5. I don't know the man or brother that are having the auction. He passed away last fall at the age of 90. Very impressive collection of all colours up for sale this coming Saturday July 18/20. Had plans to go this auction, but the virus is not allowing us to gather at auctions here in Alberta. But could preview the items on the 11th, so went for a 3 hrs drive to see what all was there. Was totally blown away but shape of the yard, buildings, restored equipment, trucks, etc. Just about everything was put away in a shed of some sort. Figured you guys would enjoy seeing some of these items. www.dougjohnauctionservice.com Forgot to mention, auction people told my Dad. There willing to work with buyers out side of the province or south of the border. Just give them all call.

  10. rain or burned - i used one all the time riding my horse and sitting at horse shows watching my daughter compete - some folks hated me because my umbrella scared their horses - I used a BIG golf one so it covered me and my saddle. My answer was NO i am not putting it away, you need to work with your horse and get it used to strange things - they didnt like my answer, they were HORSE people - there are 2 kinds of horse people and I wasnt THEIR kind - ask sandhiller, he can affirm

  16. I didn't spot any debris. I had to rebuild the pump about 5 or 6 years ago. I did switch to the solid ring at that time as I had destroyed the original when I failed to reinstall it correctly after replacing the umbrella seals. It was an expensive lesson. Yeah. You're right there. I'd like to send in all the injectors too. There is one shop a couple hours away that supposed to be able to rebuild them. Past time I'm sure. I've been slowly replacing a section at a time. Going the Johnny Cash route it seems, with the emphasis on Cash. lol.

  19. Glad you enjoyed the video Tony. I never get tired of driving and photographing the Merc. We got a good inch of rain here Friday night but double that not too far South. I sprayed a field of chem fallow 5 miles East yesterday afternoon and was sure glad i had the Magnum with MFD and duals pulling the sprayer. Left ruts in places and had to drive around a few water holes that weren't there last time. I'm guessing there was well over an inch there. Fungicide sprayers are going strong here all around me on wheat the last day or so. I took a few drone photos last week. That yellow field of canola to the East is part of a 7 quarter field. If you took the roads out that farmer would have about 17 quarters of canola in a block if I'm counting right.

  20. I've got most of the Sask. plates my dad bought strting in 1952. Plus some of my uncle's and a few others that turned up over the years. Naturally I'll put a 52 plate on the Merc. Got a 64 plate on the Chevy II. Guess I need to do the same on the Internationals. I've even got an "A" plate that my uncle had in his custom trucking business.

  25. How's this for irony? Being's I'm an AC guy, finally got around to looking at the radio and what do I see? I don't pay too much attention to tractor radios. it's generally too loud to hear them and the commercials drive me up a wall. I'm not holding my breathe that it will ever work! Would really like to know how long this poor thing sat outside.

  26. My 886 seems alot lighter in the front compared to my 1086 and 1486. I expect it is due to the engine being shorter. I have to use alot more weight when using heavy 3pt equipment. Thx-Ace

  31. I have a 756 gas burner to. Kinda different but I like it. Obviously it's your tractor but i wouldn't just kick the gas engine to the curb without a little investigation. It is very cool it's the first one off the line in 69. No serial numbers registry on 756's that I know of. I offered to do them when I started the 826 registry but it never got any traction. Nice tractor by the way. ??

  32. I’ve restored a couple for fun. Have most years from IL starting in 1917. Even have a couple of the cardboard plates from WWII. They were made from a soybean based material. People told me that it would rain and dogs would eat them off of a car. Ha The early plates were larger in IL and had slots cut in them to let air through to the radiators of the cars. The 1927 was the only year to feature the outline of the state. The are original colors as closely as I could match them. Truck plates had different colors than car plates also. The 79’ is a truck plate.

  36. ...saw this on my travels somewhere !!……. I have a big collection of USA number plates in my shed wall.....could do with a lot more....my friends think I am nuts....could be right...but I thought more interesting that going over in to Mexico...taking home a gigantic hat plus...for desert...the bonus of venereal disease...… I got most of the plates whilst working in the West Indies......older American vehicles found their way to that Island I worked on......the attrition rate with the local ''drivers '' was horrendous....thus I collected lots of car and truck plates.... New Zealand plates would win the ""Most bland, unimaginative plate "" prize..... Mike

  40. I wish the book would have went into more detail on the axle failure issue. The few that I have seen did look undersized. There were domestically produced axles that would have worked but I suppose agreement of export tractors to Hungary was too good to pass up. Also, add JD to the list of axles RABA supplied for as I just discovered the other day.

  43. Unless it is a part I need immediately or it requires a core I buy all my auto parts from Rock Auto. Most of the time I can get oem or name brand online for what store brand costs locally. I would prefer to buy parts local but most of the time funds are an issue and I need to save as much as possible.
