  1. Wheels at Wanaka is a show held every two years in Wanaka ,Central Otago. It basically is several shows all put together in one 50 acre location, cars ,motorbikes ,trucks ,tractors , earthmovers ,tractor and truck pulling and many other displays. It is the only show of its type in NZ. Here are just a sample of what was on display. I know how much you guys like photos .Sorry some of the photography is not the best. Hopefully IH Kiwi will have something to add. Marty,NZ

  3. Got the 806s and chisel plows hooked up last night and dove into a 40. Took a round to get things set but then was working pretty good. Narrow front 806 is owned by a friend of mine and is a 1963 with RD pump and M&W turbo, along with his Wilbeck Digger Disc. His 806 was under my 234 picker this past fall. Wide front 806 is mine. Has a IH turbo setup. And dads Wilbeck. He ran L4 and I ran H1.

  7. The 1976 black stripe dad bought in 1986. It has just over 4000 hours and is a beautiful original tractor. 1975 Had a factory cab but it was shot and I installed a Year a Round. Both run strong! If you haven’t been around a 1566 they have a different feel. They are heavy. A little slower on the road. With the bigger tires they have a “big tractor” feel even with the same wheel base as the others. The added weight and tire size gives them the ability to put some serious power to the ground. A 1566 is capable of doing some serious work.

  9. Well yet another week has flown by. Hope y'all have a great Easter! Our tractor of the week, yes I went to a different title to better fit, is the 1566. Please share your 1566's with us. The picture is ours, her name is Cruella. She is not pretty yet, but is a work in progress and not a high priority on our list at the moment. She is a little unique, she sports a 467 under the hood and has a four speed instead of a three. 20.8's on 20 inch wide rims, seven sets rear weights, and 18.4 x 16.1 fronts. Lets see yours y'all!

  10. Fast forward five years, when fowchee will be saying something like "you know, we're still not out of the woods. The 47th wave of the 28th variant looks especially bad, so just hunker down for a few more years. This will all be over when we've hunted down the last of the anti-vaxxer hold-outs. Do your part, get your quarterly shots, and call or text our hold-out hotline to report any who won't do what they're told. Remember, we're all in this together."

  16. Bought this back in 2012 when I was big into "fix em up" projects. Put a new TA, clutch, axle bearings PTO and resealed everything. Then with a serious relationship and other paying work it sat. Finished it up during covid and got the cab all nice getting everything working electrically along with heat and AC and interior. Still needs a few issues addressed such as crap in the fuel tank, seat suspension needs an accumulator, paint and it dynos a bit weak at 140hp (guessing inj pump needs some help due to shitty fuel in tank). Of course needs paint but paint dont make er run. Lots of hate on 15's but it's cheap HP

  18. One answer to ALL of your questions; Government has tried to eliminate God in everyone’s life. God has been pushed out of school God has been eliminated from Government buildings And the final push, God is being eliminated from Churches. You can’t worship God because it means that you don’t need Government ruling over you. We can’t teach you about God or Jesus Christ because those that are sheep might wake up We can’t allow you to follow the Bible because then you won’t accept sin as a right and not a sickness These idiots worship money and power. They embrace their sins as morality and a reward for wokeness. Notice how they turn on their weakest when it deems a threat. Has there been any more about nursing home deaths? Of course not. Any crimes against humanity for the border crisis? Of course not. These people have no moral compass and truly view us as subordinates and disposable. We no longer have an election process because us peasants can’t comprehend the ways of the world. We as a nation and on the world stage are rapidly approaching end times. The vaccine push and now vaccine cards isn’t the first push for the mark of the beast, and you can rest assuredly that it won’t be the last. I don’t. It makes my blood boil.

  28. MT Matt, Your IH Farmall tractors look great on that Montana Farm background with those mountains in their splendor. Your fine spot on Montana's earth is very great to look at! We're not "farming" yet. Soon, I'll bet! I sure understand turning sharply at the end of the field with a wide or a narrow front end. I used to be able to crank the wheel, step on the brake and the tire on the brake side stood still. I loved that when mowing hay. Thank you guys for identifying the corn sheller. I knew you "corn country" guys could do that!! Mike's Van Brunt drill doesn't look as new as yours, due to paint on yours. There is still some faint John Deere green in places on Mike's. Of course our Farmall H, "Annie" is what Mike is pulling it with here. This was my wife (No, not at this time. I met her in 1950, 71 years ago.) on her dad's WD-6 in 1949. His "modern" Van Brunt drill was behind the IH tractor. I have this photo collage above the mill-drill in our metal shop room of the two of us. Thanks for putting your IH Tractors on a Montana Farm on again, Matt. And I put a couple on too. Gary? PS: This was out of our kitchen window this morning, about a half hour ago.

  33. Now what do i do with it. I've just purchased the Mogul pictured below and still can't believe it. I've dreamed of owning this dragon since i was a kid. My father owned it briefly in 1954 then sold it back to the original owner's grandson when he moved to FL. Dad said he got it running just long enough to run it maybe a couple hundred yards. It was again parked in a barn where it sat until we pulled it out last Saturday. The engine is loose and from the looks of it there's a good bit of original paint under the grease. the serial number puts it toward the end of the production run in 1917 according to Tractordata.com. The plan is to get it running and conserve the 'finish' as is. I believe I've seen the phrase 'left in it's work clothes' used in these pages. what i could use is some advice if anyone has any. Of course, it would be perfect if someone has written the definitive work on rebuilding a 1917 Mogul 8-16. Barring that, I would be happy to see someone's greasy notes. Or a phone call with stories, warnings, and encouragement. what are the special pitfalls with this particular tractor as well as technology of this age in general? Such as "...and above all, when you go into the bottom end be damn sure to clean the slinger or it'll never see more than 30 minutes on the first run". At least that was good advice when working on BMW motorcycles from the 60's. Otherwise I'll start into it as anything else, taking plenty of pictures than begin to take it apart. for starters, what's the best way to remove 100 yr old caked on grease w/o damaging underlying paint or driving it into places it shouldn't go? I look forward to any knowledge imparted. The man to the left in the second photo is my father while the fellow in the background is the grandson of the original purchaser of the tractor and the one that sold it to me.

  34. This is the third season I’ve used this drill. And every time I’ve needed to stop for a rock or stick in the field, I did. It doesn’t leave a gap at stops but yes, it will kick out a few extra seeds. Dad cut sections of 4” pipe about 1” thick, put a couple linked together and made drag/closers behind each disk. That’s likely why it doesn’t leave a clump, they get drug out. I’ve walked behind the drill and seed immediate starts to drop once it’s primed. Gary, you have a good idea of dragging a piece of hog fence behind the drill to smooth and close. The old drill does a good job for what might be 100 years old. It was originally horse drawn. And I almost forgot, Happy Easter everyone!! ???

  35. It looks like a corn sheller to me as well. I noticed the elevator that takes the shelled grain to the wagon and the blower blows the corn shucks or husks into a pile. The fellow leaning up against the blower housing is probably covering the drive pulley for the machine. The blower usually needed the most power, so the pulley was on the blower shaft. In later years the PTO was connected to the blower shaft. I've worked around a Minneapolis model E that a neighbor pulled all over the country with a 630 JD. And my uncle had a John Deere model 6 mounted on a KB-8.

  36. I enjoyed the video. Thanks for posting. WWII was a result of WWI just as our second gulf War was a result of the first... When you stop short of settling a problem it comes back to bit you in the butt! As a side note. Germany spent the first half of the 20th century trying to conquer Europe by force. In the second half it succeeded in controlling Europe through the EU! Thx-Ace

  39. I think maybe the machine behind the 15 hp Rumelyl might be a corn sheller. I see an auger spout on the far side and the blower on the front would blow the stalks into a pile. Maybe anyways. My uncle had a corn sheller on steel wheels when I was little that was of similar form. My #1 favorite tractor is the IH 650 and I’d like to buy one for the collection one day. There was one sitting about an hour from here and I thought it would be there a long time so I’d have time to track down the owner. Nope, the next time I was by there, it was gone. Dad had a 650 as his main tractor when he farmed full time with my uncle in the early 70s. He sold it on the auction when I was 4 years old. I remember sitting on it the day it left the farm. I was wondering how close you and Mike were to planting the field at Silver Creek. The rain we got was obviously snow for you. I’ve been able to get into a couple fields here. I worked up a small area of a hay field that was taken over by cheatgrass. The old grain drill worked good to drop the grass seed. I found out quickly the wide front on the Super C doesn’t turn sharp enough on the ends. But the fast hitch was nice to level the spreader box to apply fertilizer. Another adjacent 16 acre field was just dry enough so Friday we worked it up and Saturday I planted it in oats. The narrow front on the H allows me to spin right back around at the ends to seed from one side to the other. It took all day with the little Van Brunt seeder but the old girl got the job done! I carry pails on the tractor to pick rocks as I go across. I can’t tell you how many times I got off the tractor but the fence on the edge of the field will never fall over with the stack of rocks around the posts! When you were farming in eastern Montana, did you have a lot of rocks to deal with?
