    A senior couple returned to a Corvette dealership where the salesman has just sold the car they had been interested in to a beautiful, leggy, busty blonde in a mini skirt and a halter top.The old man was visibly upset. He spoke to the salesman sharply, "Young man, I thought you said you would hold that car till we raised the $85,000 asking price. Yet I just overheard you closed the deal for $72,000 to the lovely young lady there. And if I remember right, you had insisted there was no way you could discount this model."The salesman took a deep breath, cleared his throat and reached for a large glass of water. "Well, what can I tell you? She had the cash ready, didn't need any financing help, and, Sir, just look at her, how could I resist?" replied the grinning salesman sheepishly.Just then the young woman approached the senior couple and gave the car keys to the old man."There you go," she said. "I told you I could get that idiot to lower the price. See you later Dad, Happy Father's day."

    I do lots of custom work with my 1460. They can laugh all they want, I dont have a payment book. Keep your machine maintained and do a good job you will have work. I charge $35/hour plus fuel and have more than enough work. My profit margin is much greater than those running new machines. I have dealer go through machine every winter, have yield monitor and provide customer yield maps and my grain is consistently cleaner than other custom operators and all the grain goes in bin not out the back like the big guys that need to cover x amount of acres a season to make payments. I can take my time, do a good job, only work for guys that have check waiting when I pull out. Biggest problem with custom work is getting paid. Alot of bigger custom guys have ALOT of outstanding accounts. I also keep my machine looking good and performing good. That makes a big difference when you show up if it does not look like you roll in with a rolling pile of crap. Age of machine is not nearly as important as reliabilty and performance. Shoot me a pm if you want to chat

    Thought someone might enjoy these pic's of my 1958 A model Gleaner & 1959 Chevy C-60 Viking which I'm still using to cut and haul wheat & soybeans.

    Probably saw the same six choppers you did, around 11:30AM, headed East out of Rochester. Three Blackhawks, and three Chinooks, I think.

    You might need to get a little creative to get the one on the left to release. In fact you may have to remove the left lift pin from the implement entirely and pull it out sideways. Those should be long pins slid through both holes on each side anyway. Notice how the tabs are bent on that box scraper. Wasn't designed to have a lift pin bolted there.

    ....The Southern Iowa Fair. Some friends of mine requested I bring some tractors to the Southern Iowa Fair in Oskaloosa, Iowa. IH is the feature this year. Wasn't sure if was gonna work as I was having some oil leaks fixed on my truck. The parts will be cheap compared to the labor on this one. But enough about that. Back to the the tractors. I got the call Friday evening the truck was done. So Saturday was gonna be a mad dash to get ready. I used reverse psychology. If I had the tractors ready the truck wouldn't be ready. So I got up early and got started. My SMTA was in the way. Popped right off. The 54 SMLP took right off to. The 656 L.P. needed a battery installed. It then started right up to. The surprise I got was the 756 L.P. with a junk battery. Hunted one up, picked it up in route to picking up the truck and all was good. It now starts to. The Navy H lit right up to. By the time I had everything ready to go it was 1:30pm. With the two detours involved it was 3:15pm when we got there. After getting unloaded wife and I met a nice older couple. Found out he was a L.P. tractor guy. Mainly Minneapolis Moline but that's ok. And his wife really wanted the full story on the yellow H. Ended up being there a hour and a half. But they say time flies when you're having fun. And we were definitely having fun. I was also assured they'd be safe on our way out the gate. A gentleman that works at the fairgrounds also lives across the street. And there are cameras and or sensors that let him know if they have any unwanted visitors. I wasn't to worried but it is nice to know. One comical thing happened on the way down. A guy was mowing with his GREEN lawnmower. Stopped for a second to take in the view and gave us a big wave as we went by.

    looks like one latch is open too far and wont let pin out as it is on wrong side of things. The one on the left as you stand behind tractor looking forward looks wrong to me. Nepoweshiek am i right about that?

    Three Point Fast Hitch was the official name IH used back in 1958.

    Yes, and hooking implements is a very, very dangerous job.

    Wouldn't it have been easier when it all started just to talk to the mail man and ask him what height he wanted the box to make him happy and not specs laid out on a website. When she started calling his superiors I would say she pi$$ed in her pickles. He wasn't happy before and for sure not now and never will be.

    Have someone hold a piece of cardboard over the hole and trace a pattern on it. Take it to any automotive glass shop. They will cut the glass smaller to account for the gasket and will also have the gasket on a big roll. One stop shopping. Most gaskets are the same. It is an easy install/fix. Ya just gotta love those 856's.

    I like mine. 1066 Black Stripe has one. Roomy. Some say they like the 86 cab better, but it's either climb over the pedals or climb over the levers.
