  2. We had a beautiful day to plow. Ground conditions were fantastic. 7 tractors. Only 2 red ones! I could use some help! My 1066 and a neighbors 560. 2 4020’s a 4320 a 2290 case and a MM U. We will try to get another day in this spring. There are pics of all the tractors and some videos on FB at Back Roads of IL tractor group. Request being added and you will be put in the group.

  3. Even with my new dual boot hard drive and and using Hy-trans in the mother board along with the high speed keyboard with T/A, l still had problems on the forum. l even cleaned the dust out of the Mason jar pre-cleaner and installed a new rain cap on the muffler, but that still didn't work. But thanks to BJ, we got the red edge back and it's working like it should!!

  5. I attempted to install a software patch on Saturday 3/13/21 and it was a complete failure. So I had to restore from a backup. The last good backup was from Friday (3/12/21). BJ

  10. Had a little storm over the weekend. Just wondering how everyone came out. I am sure some out there had it a lot tougher than me and hope you get dug out and calf losses were kept to a minimum Those calving right now had little to no sleep for 48 hours or more. Temps weren't bad but heavy rain turning to snow with wind steady over 20 with gusts over 50 kept people out in the calving lots. As of this morning still have some highways closed in Western Nebraska Main street in Valentine Cheyenne, WY didn't have the rain so wound up with more snow Think somebodies going to need a bigger shovel? This is awesome grass making moisture and we should be going into grazing season with a good start. In my area we really need these March and April snows to get the grass to growing in May. Although tough for the short term, it is a blessing for a good summer. This heavy wet snow covered the soft sandhills and with temps nearing 50 by weekend, it will go straight down. Perfect!

  11. That is a shame. Last week got wind of a guy who is going to clean up some of his now passed away father in laws tractors. He was waiting for a roll off. John Deere's A, B and GP. Farmalls F20 and Super M. All of them were projects he never got around to and sat outside. We agreed on scrap price and I will pick them up this spring. It may be to late for them, but I hated the thought of another set of Chinese wrenched made from classic iron. I got a compliment once from out local scrap yard guy. "Mike. When you bring in scrap. Its scrap"

  14. I see that several posts from last week disappeared when the forum was down on Sunday. Oh well, maybe the moderators of Red Power thought the the Blue Smoke from Gary's thread was getting too thick?

  15. This picture speaks volumes of an era gone by. Entire generations of today’s farmers really have no experience of this type of farming. Time moved slower back then. It took longer to plow than today’s minimum tillage rigs but it also seemed like there was more time to get things done. Great pic and awesome representation of a bygone era that epitomizes all things right and good of IH.

  16. A buddy of mine was helping the family sell the tractor. When I went to look at it he showed me the bill of sale and operator manual. We went for a drive to a portion of the man’s farm and found that plow. No one knew it was still around as the owner had passed away. The good news is that a family member of the original owner bought the tractor and plow so they are still together.

  17. It's not steam, but here's one I found that fits in with some of the others posted. Farm workers use a Hart-Parr kerosene-fueled tractor to move their bunk house to the next field they will be plowing in Warwick, North Dakota, 1908.

  18. No kidding. There is a small group of 4-6 gentlemen that gather at our local coffee shop, about every morning. I would say their average age is 78, maybe 80. Happiest group of guys every. None of them can hear much at all. They all talk at the same time, at each other, smile, laugh,.....repeat themselves....next guy says the same thing....repeat. Waitress takes good care of them: “Would you like Rye toast or Wheat today Earl? Earl: “Yes. And I would like toast too.” ”Coming right up”. -I hope she’s still running the place in 20 years.

  24. Grandpa was always breaking axles in his 68 3/4 ton IH pickup. Had a stock rack in it; hauling cattle and hogs. Old man Custer always told him "If you want to haul a 2 ton load, you need a 2 ton truck!"

  29. my dozers come under the dead weight category, though they have all been used in the last 40years. Cat 977 that I bought and spent a bunch of money on to get the steering clutches redone. I loaded a lot of gravel before one side stopped driving. Cat D6 that I bought and got a fence row cleaned up with, before one side stopped driving. IH TD 14A that was a town machine in a gravel pit on a farm I bought. Town put it out to bid, but winning bidder waited until the engine was set up before he came for it. I got ahold of it for junk price after the buyer found out he couldn't just drive it on his trailer. Probably the most valuable of all of them- a 1937 Caterpillar Fifteen that i traded a junky C20 pickup for in 1980. Homemade blade added to tractor. Cat hasn't run in years.

  30. I’m still wondering why you would use way too much of an expensive additive when you can just do it the way it’s been done a million times by priming the filter with plain fuel.

  32. I don’t usually notice till I go to watch a show on tv and find out it’s already over or I have to stay up a hour later lol. Mostly nice to not have to worry about it. Have to stop and think once and a while when you want to call people what time it actually is. That’s about the only downside.

  33. At one time Caterpillar had a much tougher product than anybody else. Not to be kicking other brands but in the road building business they lasted longer with average Joe operating them. At lot of owner operators knowing the weak points got along fine with other brands. The IH gas start diesels need to be cooled with 5 to 30 minutes of idling on the end of a hot day or you run a good risk of cracking heads. That was something the payed help had a hard time doing, so the reputation of IH engines went in the toilet. So used Cats sold for more. So salesmen looking for suckers painted anything yellow. Both IH and AC picked up on this and there construction equipment lines got yellow paint starting in the late 50's to 60's. Once all the new ones where yellow many people painted the old ones yellow too if they repainted.

  42. I looked at a 1066 a while back that was a one owner. They had the receipt with it for a new IH plow sold together with the tractor. It was a 5x18” and that wasn’t too far from you near Palestine. Not looking to start a plowing debate, but found the info interesting. I’d say a plow might go about 6-8’ here right now before the tractor sank. ?

  45. You tube is not keeping up, was just watch medical doctors talking about how Ivermectin had helped them with cases in assisted living factuality's. There are many more links I did not watch but a similar thread as this on Ag Talk. The first link was from 2/23/21. Sorry I don't know how to do links, so maybe it's just actors playing doctors. But they fooled me. You pick them apart and let me know. And if Ivermectin is not affective it at least has a 30 year track record that it will not harm you. The covid prevention shot has no record, except it can give covid symptoms. As well as some saying it has killed people already, which is only a educated guess at this point.
