  1. Regardless of whether it's a new pic or a vintage, l think that pic of the M and dealer is still neat looking. But here is one that is the real deal. Pic of a 460 LP at the IH dealer in Slaton, Texas (about 15 miles SE of Lubbock) in 1963. This dealer also has the distinction of selling the first 806 on the south plains of Texas in late 1963. Here is a pic of it with a 6 row cotton planter in the spring of 1964. Although from a different nearby dealer, my Dad had the 2nd 806 on the Texas south plains..

  4. What an amazing project. A grand total of 750hrs to make this O-4 look absolutely amazing. I am very happy with the end result on this one. I am really hoping all this nonsense ends soon so I can get this thing to a show. I won second place in our local competition and now I am entered in the Delo national competition. With that being said I need everyone's help. Please go to https://delotrcvoting.com/Voting/Details?entryId=147 and vote for Josh Jorgensen. You can vote 3 times every 24 hours. Please tell family and friends, register multiple emails, etc. I would really appreciate the votes. Thanks in advance. Josh

  6. Re: Bumped oil pan Good job-----eagle eyes? Looking closely at the oil pan brought back lots of old time memories. I have brazed up several cracked oil pans on Farmall M's in my days. Regardless of being a staged picture or not---------the picture sure is realistic to to what I remember seeing in my younger days. I collected up several toy M's while tagging along with my daddy on parts runs to the Greenville, Mississippi Delta Implement store. Frank Foresman was the long standing parts manager------extremely knowledgable, and a super nice guy. Frank (old enough that I should have been calling him Mr. Frank) also was a toy tractor and model train collector. The store manager was Slim Holiman----father to the late Harold H here on Red Power. Thanks for the post and eagle eye comments. DD

  11. Ok, lots of progress but few pictures as time has been kind of short and I have been focused on getting as much back together as possible as quickly as possible to free up space. In short engine is in, clutch is done, radiator assembly is in. Next up is to fit and start repairing the rear platform and the inner fenders. Short of fluids engine is ready to fire. Today however was a bit of a surprise. Oldest kiddo wanted smores, since it was cool and wet figured why not have them for lunch. I also figured since there would be a nice bed of coals in the fire ring I would try boiling out the rust and fuel varnish from the original fuel tank. Now I had already written the original tank off as being to gummed up to clean and save. We already have a pristine tank off a parts tractor so figured I had nothing to loose. I have read/heard about this but never talked to anyone with fist had experience. Added five gallons of water and a half gallon of evaporator coil cleaner and set it over the fire. After 45min the water was boiling and had a decent head of steam rolling out of the filler neck. Let it boil for close to an hour, removed the tank from the heat, sloshed the boiling water around and dumped it in a bucket. Took a gander in the tank and HOLY MOLEY did that work great! Repeated the boiling process with just water to get some additional rust and debris flushed out from behind the baffle. I am absolutely shocked at how well this worked. The tank has gone from a write off to going back on. Im sure there will be some debris left over but that is par for the course with 84 year old gas tanks. So in the end, we had smores for lunch, sat by the fire for a few hours, and I have a clean original gas tank.
