  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.

  28. Give it a try Tony? Most shops will not use full synthetic until after the break in period of a new engine Trying to find conventional oil is getting tough. I'm still using Mobil Delvac 15-40 in about everything. But it is getting harder to find. We may be forced in the future to Case/IH or Mother Deere for all conventional and straight weight oils that will keep flat tappet lifters alive.

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?

  35. 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.

  36. Two decals on the rear section and one each on the front sections (not shown) were added and the project is complete. For me bringing an implement back to life (and preserving its history with a tractor of the same era) is as or more rewarding than the tractor itself. Maybe it is because one sees so little of it. Fortunately the cultivator was complete, sans the one fast hitch bracket when purchased, as parts hunting may have been an exercise in futility. Now it’s time to hit the corn field and see if they work. On second thought corn is shoulder high so maybe next year.

  39. I'm guessing just about every North American manufacturer that worked with Raba as a supplier had issues with quality control over there...certainly Steiger and CaseIH did back in the day. To put it succinctly, Raba was like every other manufacturer from the Eastern bloc/Communist countries from that time......quantity came first, while quality came a distant second. Used to deal with 598 Raba axles on the last green Steigers as well as the 91/9200 series CaseIH Steigers. Raba axles were the only product I can remember wearing out a set of special tools for them just because we did so many....we had to order all new special tools for them in the mid-1990s. Probably didn't help that by that time we had mostly triples on 91/9280s or else they had combine tire duals(30.5x32s). With those tire options, the axle bearings were terribly inadequate...especially if somebody added extra weight such as fluid in the tires or suitcase weights in front and back. Also, differentials gave a lot of problems on them, too. Most of these problems were addressed with the 694 axles on the 9370/80/90 series tractors. 598 Raba axles were one of the reasons CaseIH came out with the "2/3 price of new" warranty policy. Simply put, if the parts costs for the repair exceed 2/3 the value of a new assembly/component, order the new assembly/component instead. With the double-reduction planetary hubs in the 598 axles, it was pretty easy to exceed the "2/3 of new" figure. Replaced several complete axle assemblies on 91/9280s back when they were in warranty. Maybe Deere can straighten out the quality control problem they have had over there for many years...but I wouldn't bet on it.

  40. The early 2+2's used KIMCO axles, 33/35/3788, 63/65/6788. I "Think" it was the Super 70's, 72/7488 was supposed to get a RABA axle. There were 200-300 of them in a row piled up in front of Milan Surplus for several years. The Kimco axle shared parts with the 574 utility tractor final drive. It was stressed enough on the 37/6788's. I know we discussed those RABA axles 10+ years ago on here.
