  3. My dog OSCAR; Pyrenean mountain dog. He is a very docile dog who loves people. This type of dog is used to protect herds from predators like bears, wolves, or other dangerous animals. Here is a video shot in the Pyrenees. In the United States of America, there is a club dedicated to these dogs. Here is the link address : http://gpcaonline.org/index.htm

  6. Anson, you mean the little and huge tennis racquets? Mike can put those huge tennis racquets on his feet and Kaiser Jäger can put those small tennis racquets on his feet and they can go out on deep snow in the winter and keep walking on top like it was just a skiff of snow. (Mike knows not to eat yellow snow, when those two are out on the snow.) I wish I knew how to post Roger's giff of showing Blue Smoke? Or is it a donkey in a well? Gary? PS: Opticalrectitus won't come up with spelling correct on my computer. And, "Autocorrect" is my worst enema.

  7. Anson... I'm sure this will shock you but thought I would let you know, that yesterday I volunteered for the vaccine trials for Covid-19, held here in Montana. The vaccine is one that was created in Russia. I received my first shot yesterday at 4:00 pm, and I wanted to let you all know that it’s completely safe, with иo side effects whatsoeveя, and that I feelshκι χoρoshό я чувствую себя немного странно и я думаю, что вытащил ослиные уши.

  8. As a younger kid, like many played with 1/16th farm toys in the garden(80's). As got older started collecting & building 1/64 farm toys(90's). Last couple years started collecting anything that said "W" on them. Mostly do that grew up around life size Super W6, for some reason the 6 series toys is next to impossible to find. Only have 3 of those, back in the 90's had Teeswater Custom Toys build a SW6. RPRU in Racine brought a W6, trip this past June brought a SW6 t/a. Been looking for a cabinet to put them in, found this one for $200 Cdn. It had one glass shelf, got local company to cut the rest. Added the led lights to show the toy tractors up better.

  10. Ahh.......Richard......always happy to help out....The problem is my typing speed is so fast....that I have to pause.....often......so the individual 'letters' can catch up.....This has been an issue I have faced, ever since I adopted the ''single digit '' typing method......and yes.....it has attracted "critique's'' such as your self.......albeit infrequently..... I trust that this explanation...of what have might appeared to be some idiosyncratic 'butchering ' of the/any written treatise.....will satisfy your curiosity..... Mike

  12. Re: "little and huge tennis racquets" Tennis racquet or snowshoe-----looks like a man would need a steam engine to power the big one. I really never gave snowshoeing much thought-------but would think it took some practice to get proficient at the process. Might get complicated getting back up after tangling your right toe under your left heel????? Do you see people actively snowshoeing out your way anymore??? Presume the powered snow sleds made the snowshoe another collectible item to park in the corner?? DD

  14. There's an EMT in our department who's been at it -I'm guessing- 30+ years. I think the story he likes tell the most is the dog they saved a few years back.

  15. Just an update on this for anyone who was wondering if I ever got to the bottom of the knocking sound coming from the transmission of my International 354. Well I did have some success, the transmission is now almost completely knock-free - probably as good as when it left the factory. I put a new clutch in the tractor. The centre hub of the main clutch disc with the damping springs and come quite loose and gained a lot of movement from the outer material that grabs the flywheel and the rear of the pressure plate. As a result this was causing a lot of clattering noise when the tractor was running. One of the springs for the fingers of the pressure plate had broken and the 3 fingers were not 100% at the same level, but they were close. So on reflection it was a good decision to fit a new pressure plate and main disc. But I just wasn't convinced that I had solved the pto knocking. As shown in a video above I noticed some movement in the pto when I shoved a piece of pipe over it at the rear. I took off the pto engagement lever at the side of the transmission for a better look. Below is what I saw - This slop is between the rear of the front pto shaft and the countershaft that it runs inside. I tried all sorts of methods to remove the bushing at the end of the countershaft, but to no avail. So took the shaft to a machine shop to have it built up by approx 1mm. This had to be precise because the pto shaft cannot be a tight fit inside the countershaft, it needs a little bit of movement, just not as much as my tractor had. When I had the tractor all put back together I ran it on the bush hog for about 20 minutes. Even before the knocking became bad, after 20 minutes of bush hogging when everything was warm, you would hear the pto knock a bit. Well the video below is what the tractor sounded directly after the 20 minutes bush hogging. Now listen to how the tractor was before the new clutch and work to the pto shaft - It's almost 2 months now since I did those repairs. The tractor has done all sorts of work since, and the transmission noise is virtually gone, at least as good as I can expect for this old design of transmission. I hope this can help someone who has similar issues with their tractor. Regards, Damien

  17. Another point when dealing with new parts guys... Don't walk in or call up and ask about parts for the "SCV" on your red or blue tractor.

  19. I can see that. It also doesn't help that they are reusing certain model numbers again. Ask about a 7120 to a newer parts guy. He thinks you're talking a combine rather than a Magnum.

  21. The way they arranged and divided the model series when NGPC was rolled out does not help the less experienced people one bit. it's hard enough to learn about the seldom seen older tractors especially when the series are divided up instead of grouped together.

  23. I need part numbers, because the parts guys at our dealership are as worthless as teats on a boar!!! I had this issue just last night, couldn’t get on the website to find part numbers, called the dealer, and after awhile, said f**k it, I’ll figure something else out!!! Good parts guys will help, lazy ones that are 10 minutes from retirement don’t care if they help you or not!! And the one young guy at this same dealership that knew something, and could get you the part dang near by memory, he left cause he hated this new system so much, and the older parts guys that hate computers kept putting all the parts calls on him. So I agree with others, what a disgrace to IH and us!! I guess more aftermarket stuff will be getting bought, I have a guy that knows almost all IH part numbers to get aftermarket.

I called Pete & asked him was his toy. Said yes it was, is going to make a new one & send it out. Told him just keep it & will come get it.

  32. The W6 was made by Pionner out eastern Minnesota I'm told. The SW6 was made in Ontario by Bill Ireland of Teeswater Toys. The SW6 t/a was made by Peter Freiheit of Red Wing MN. Its has to been one of the nicest custom built toys I have ever seen. I met Peter at his home this past June. Was just in awe in see his work shop & the beautiful toys he has made. I asked him if he would sell it, he wasn't sure about it. We chatted for couple hrs, he decided it was going to go home. I paid what he asked & I left happy with my buy. Top shelf, gave my Dad a project of making tandem WD9 in 1/64th scale. Found a guy in southern SK that made up the SW6 & the W450 like we have in real life.

  33. In 1989 went to toy show with my Dad, was just amazed by this tandem pair of W9's. Never seen anything like it, but it was $300 dollars. I never asked him for it, there was only 40 made for that show. Couple years ago, there was an older gentleman selling one of them for $150. Couldn't get $ out fast enough to purchase it. Neighbour of mine has one, grew up with his daughters so I could look at it. Also seen one in National farm toy museum.
