  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!

  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.

  30. Antifa trying to disrupt the He!!'s Angels? They may get to see where Jimmy Hoffa's buried? PS: The Lions Pancake House will be open early in the AM starting Friday. If you get up early, want coffee, breakfast and B.S., stop by and set down in an open chair. The food is great. In 2014, the day started here and it will do so again in 2020. There is no more fun than people?

  36. My favorite Charlie Daniels memory is this: When I was in HS, I was a swimmer. Around us, it was mostly just big suburban schools that had swim teams, and then us as the only rural school with a team, so we were stuck swimming against teams much larger, richer, and usually snobbier than us. The other schools used to hate coming ALLLL the way out to our place to compete, presumably for fear of cooties. They would pick on us and look down their noses at us for being a lesser caste and we were a doormat to boot. When I got on the team, we got good and started beating them and we just embraced the "hick" label. We would play Devil Went Down to Georgia and the Dueling Banjos during our warmup. We loved it and we'd sing and dance around when it came on, and then stomp the pretty boys in the pool. I could live to be 200 years old and I'd still smile when I hear that song for just that reason.

  37. I meant to put this on here last week but I kept forgetting to get a good picture until it was too dark. This drop spreader say on the edge of a field for ever just around the corner from where I live now. I distinctly remember the yellow lettering when my parents drove past that field on one of their Sunday afternoon country rides. My employer at the time purchased that piece of land and I asked if I could take it for yard decor. He said yes and now it greets people when they come to my place.

  39. The plow is all painted up. Had every piece sandblasted by someone else, nice change from wire wheeling every piece with a grinder. Used rustolem professional rattle cans to paint the plow. Have a spot near us where we hope to drop it in the ground and see how it works. Before tearing it apart, the tail wheel was frozen solid, so it wouldn’t plow right. I hope it works better now, don’t know what could be wrong with it, but you never know.

  40. Well my 16th birthday is coming up soon so I’ve been driving around a lot getting ready for when the dmv opens back up. Last Sunday I rode by a local Agco dealer. Spotted a fast hitch disc plow through the fence. Called and got a price and yesterday I pulled the trailer up there and my dad and I split the cost between us and bought the plow. I plan to fix it up, get everything adjusting right, new bolts, pins, bearing work, etc then paint it up. I want it to be a nice show piece for the 240 but also be functional. We will probably have to move the rear tires in some to line up right. When I had the wheels off to paint them I had thought about narrowing it up anyway, so that’s not a big deal. I think the 240 will pull it well. The fast hitch on the plow is a small point and the tractor is a large point so we’ll have to add a little metal to the bottom of the points.
