  1. Some time back I was asked about the four valves on one of our 1466's. Said I would share about that project. I had planned on always adding a third valve to this tractor as it used to be our loader tractor. When our restoration of this 14 began, there were several things we wanted to do before we actually started the painting. I got ready to work on the third valve project and jokingly said to the boys maybe we should put on four. I then said four won't fit anyway. That's when my boys started with well it can't be done anyway talk. Whenever I say something isn't doable they start in with the

  2. Hope every one of my friends on the forum enjoys a Happy Thanksgiving with family. Drive safe! And please take time to remember in your prayers those who can't be with their families, sacrificing to keep us safe so we may enjoy the many blessings that comfort us daily.

  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.

  4. They endure some cold in order to worship. At every mention of Amish I find myself saying that we could learn a lot from them. There's so much snark about the Amish but they seem happy and their families seem functional, which is more than many can say.

  6. 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

We would of needed a few days for stories and pictures but I had to get back home . 1600 miles round trip , that was a lot of sitting 😳 but well worth the trip , now I can get the TD 20 back in operation .

  10. 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.

  11. My moms cousin who passed away always had a pee for distance story. He said in the late 50s early 60s at a small town function or party. Some teenage boys were trying to see who had the most distance. His 40 year old woman nieghbor came by and said I will show you how. He said she lifted her skirt bent a little and something else but he didn’t know how she did it. Beat all the boys by feet not inches. Story looses a lot you had to have cousin tell it and act it out.

  14. A guy could sure get used to working in a nice warm, dry, well lit shop. I've never experienced all three at once. I think it's making me soft. I won't want to go on any service calls now. Since everyone likes pictures here are a few from some recent repairs. Tree puller I made for a neighbor. Replacing broken leaf springs and hangers. MFD supply tube popped out on this MTX. Installed an old Great Bend 800 on a 560. Since I have the same loader I thought I'd get a picture of the great bend girls together. I added

  16. I picked this up an an auction years ago and it sat around without a home until now. My brother made up a frame for it out of scrap from my late father-in-law's corn crib that was demolished last year. Put it on the wall in the new shop and like how it turned out. No idea as to its origins, and never seen another quite like it.

  17. 13yr old son was with me. We went in about 11am and back out about 230. We had seen 2 does a fox and 2 pheasents in the am followed by a nice buck on the wrong side of the fence. We rent the neighbors ground where the buck was and they don't hunt but without consent it was a no go. Late afternoon we had seen a ton of doe. My son was able to get a 3 point buck, his first one. He is a junior hunter so no antler restrictions for him. Before anyone frowns at taking a deer like this it is about the experience and keeping youth interested. He was thrilled.

  18. Today the local nursing home my mom works at had a Christmas time parade for the residents. The residents stayed in their rooms and their families were able to get cider and pie and be with their families on the outside. A couple nights ago my parents and I decorated the 1948 Farmall Cub and the 1957 McCormick-Deering #10 manure spreader. I drove it 2 miles at 6 mph and got to the nursing home in 20 minutes. It was a nice day for the parade and the residents were happy from what mom said.

  19. 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.

  21. Don't tell anybody anything about your activities. None of their business. Yes follow common sense practices like you are, but the less anybody knows the better. If this is how they are going to be in these states, duck em as our friend north of the border says.

  22. Yes it is. But it completely ignores the fact that ALL small farmers regardless of race have been systemically removed by the USDA's (and others policies) over the last several generations.

  24. Does not matter which denomination, many organizations that say they are for the worship of God and his arisen Son are getting off the way to eternal life. There are truths in the Bible that all must account for before God, not man. Just because someone the world says is important says so is not a reason that will be expectable at the last judgement. We all need to spend more time in the study of the Bible. May the sprit of God speak to us in a ways we understand.

  28. 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

  35. Bought this old 1975 1566 last Saturday. What I need it for I have no idea. Lol! Hauled it home yesterday, along with a distressed MF 1100. Both came from the same place. Owner passed away in August so no info on either. I'm sure others have seen this a time or two before, but just thought it was unusual after 25 year's and more than one owner, no-one ever took it off

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.

  40. Why would she follow that? Her teachers union contract I guarantee does not give the school these rights. So sad how people are letting the powerless rule over them. We are having a normal family Thanksgiving with wifes side. Nothing we do will stop a virus. Sadly people will die. But it has to run its course...like SARS few years ago. Painful for 100k a Americans then done. As long as the Fed keeps paying these States and County for cases this will never end.

  41. Not to take away from being thankful but actually adding to worldly things I am thankful for. I found an original post drill table on eBay and added it to my post drill since it was missing that part. I clear coated it to match and it looks like it was always there.

I bet ol creepy sleepy Jo wouldn’t even know how to use it . When you can’t even form a sentence how could you possibly even know where electricity comes from?
