  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.

  23. Saw this on a trailer in town yesterday and was interesting what was under it. Maybe some of you will think the same? I’ve never seen a tiller under a planter so not sure what all it’s benefits are......... unless it’s just a way to prepare the ground and plant under the same pass? Otherwise just thought I’d share.

  27. When i first saw these i looked them up they're for mowing wet land, marshes,things like that and hills.we got some hills this thing would be nice, I remember the first thing we did when we got a new zero turn is put a tractor lug style tire on the rear because turfs wouldnt hold on a hill and im here to tell you once you start sliding on a zero turn you aint stopping till the both or you hit something, its worse than being on ice

  28. The picture of 3020 is how some of the ones looked that guys bought in Canada.I am Sure they were available here in US with axle turned around and shortened. I turned axles on a couple to make them normal looking. You have to bend steering pipes behind radiator grill and swap them as steering is backwards. Interesting thing is pipes are different between short wheelbase and regular tractors.

  31. Most 560's were old enough and did not use the elastacast ring on the governor weight retainer. The older used a mechanical spring to dampen the governor. But the older used a short advance piston that would bind. If the advance piston is about 1" and the pump looks like the same as 1456, then it can be the ring. If a shallow advance, that is where I would start first. Metering valves usually cause galloping/hunting and not loss of rpm's. Unless the high idle screw came loose and worked it's way in. A thought and easy to see. If the pump hasn't seen a shop in years, it may be time and take the nozzles too.

  32. If I'm not mistaken the threads are 5/8 nf thread if that's what your asking. I had trouble once with the duals loosening up on a tractor with 5/8 wheel bolts so I drilled and rethreaded the holes to 3/4. No more trouble after that.

  35. Since the topic of chain drives is here, thought l'd post these pics. l was surfin' the net and found a site that info about IH in WW II and the things they built. First pic is a one of seven prototype tanks they built called M-7. US Army decided there wasn't much improvement over the Sherman tanks so they weren't put into production. The M-26AT was a truck built by Mack but powered with a Hall-Scott inline 8 cylinder engine. Third pic is a close up of the chain drive.

  38. Got to test the plow out in a construction site near our house. The plow worked well, but the furrow wheel blade is so worn down it wouldn’t stay down in the furrow some times. Ordered an 18in plow coulter to replace the 15in original tail wheel blade. Cut all the holes in the new coulter with oxyfuel. Here’s a few finished pictures. Going to try and make room for the plow under a shed to keep it out of the rain.

  41. They were made in Hungary, under license from Steiger in the mid-1970s. Don't think they were ever exported to North America. Think they were just offered in Europe. Here's a few pictures.....notice the IH 400 Cyclo corn planter painted yellow in the one picture....interesting. Also, didn't IH have some sort of license/contract with Raba in the late 1970s? I know I've seen a yellow IH 2+2 pulling a yellow IH plow that had some connection with Raba/Hungary(think it was one of Ken Updike's IH books).

  43. We narrowed up the 240’s rear wheel track width to work with the plow. I like the looks of it narrowed up so we are going to leave it like it is now even when not plowing Got the plow fully disassembled. Lot of pb blaster and oxy acytelene was required. Cleaned up the disk bearings. Ready to have the parts sand blasted by someone else.
