  1. Have been hauling stock piles lately. Took a few pictures, but didn't get one of the boys with the 1486 close. It is on the road in the windshield picture. Giving the ole 1066 narrow front a workout before we restore her. Found out she needs a new clutch! Better to know now than later.

  2. Looking through some of my literature today for some info and found a get ready for spring catalog that the dealers mailed to their customers. Going to your local IH dealer was better than going to the local hardware store or farm store! Back in the day if you needed it on the farm I think you could get almost everything with an IH on it. They had clothes, tools, welders, fence supplies and all the equipment needs as well. I wish the dealers were still like that today. Here are just a few pictures of pages from the "Get Ready For Spring" IH mailing I have.

  3. So......I drove over there today after changing a 2nd water heater I swear had 30 gallons of crap in it. I drove to this lady’s house and asked if she had time to talk. I had my work truck and uniform on, but I figured out she didn’t realize who I was. Until I politely asked what was going on. it went well, I explained myself and listened to her side. apparently the whole charges thing was mixed in translation (not being funny there). it took a little bit. We shook hands, wished a happy thanksgiving, and moving on.

  6. Mine has a four cylinder engine. Sitting in the grader, behind my left elbow, coming through the back of the cab is a choke knob pulled out to choke and push in to run. Where was the original located? Thanks! Life is meant to be a learning experience throughout...I have entered into another learning experience!!! Here are a few pics of the controls, and where it was and where it is now. Pirate

  8. Here is what I would use if it was allowed. This one is 6.5 Creedmore. Ruger Precision Rifle. 8x40 Burris XTR scope. Since I cannot hunt deer with it and the largest game I can hunt with it is a coyote here you go... Got him this morning. Ranged at 420yds. Resting on a round bale. Spotted him from the house.

  11. Sporterized 1917 Eddystone, 30 06. Antique Weaver scope. 150 dollars in the whole package. Whoever built the ugly old fella must've been a real shooter in their day. It will keep bullets touching easily on the paper at 100 yds. I bought it as a behind the seat gun but I fell in love with it and now it's like an old friend.

  15. .......if you like Savage 99's......the top one is a 22Hi-Power cartridge.......shot several Red deer with that rifle.....but down under here, if one is interested in hunting per se......there are endless opportunities, to hunt Chamois/Tahr/Red deer /Fallow Deer/Sika Deer /Wapiti/Wallaby/pigs etc ...so if you like firearms...as I do...(Right...I am not a f----g Socialist...).....anything can be used...I have got lots of deer with the Marlins......Used the big calibres , but it is ridiculous carting a big calibre firearm up the bloody hills...plus the ammunition......when the Mod 77

  20. Shot most of my deer with the Pennsylvania pump, Remmington 760 in 6mm. Last couple I have used a Savage 99 in .300 Savage that my great aunt gave me. Have also used a Winchester 94 in .30-.30 and have a 760 BDL in .30-06, but never shot deer with it. Have Marlin lever action in .32 Winchester from my great uncle, might have to take it out for a doe next week. Would love to get a Henry in .357 or .44.

  29. Brought home a Fencerow treasure today since it was raining. I always had wanted to find a 700 7 bottom plow For the 1256 as we bought one when we bought the 1256 new. Ours was semi mount And I’ve had a very difficult time finding one as it seems the only ones I can find are either smaller plows or the trailing kind. Anyway, The guys that I do seed corn harvesting for Had this sitting in their back lot And I went over to look at it to find that it was a 720 7/16s. Has good moldboards and good coulters on it so I inquired and he said give me 400 bucks for it and it’s yours. I thought that was a

  31. Yep. That's how it should look. Refer to snoshoe's post above as to tire wear.

  33. If you visualize a line down that spindle shaft and use center rib of tire as other line they should cross at the ground. Yours appear to. That makes them steer easier. Yes they wear the outside. Remounting the tires the other way once in a while spreads the wear. If wear is excessive check the toe.

  40. i dont own any guns but the marlin 60 i have used many times is a jam o matic - tube fed .22 works best with more $$/quality ammo. would never buy a marlin product based on that experience. I know of others that are of the same experience. my most positive experience would have to be with a rem 870 - idiot proof/functional/reliable - used a ruger 10/22 seemed ok didnt like the style/feel of it tho not sure how they think they will tax people on things that are unknown and sure as they mandate a tax on them they will disappear more. How do you collect the $$ on something that doesnt

  45. I guess I shouldn't taunt Seth since I just added this to my collection. I thought it was a sharp looking rifle. Ultimately it seems I always revert to the old Marlin 30-30 that I bought as my first deer rifle out of comfort I guess.

  47. Folks, This is a very real and very important topic. Pay attention and educate yourselves on it. The fact that BJ has “bent the rules” to let this topic stay here should tell you how important and far reaching it can be. Please be civil and respectful. Thank you!!!
