  1. Very sad indeed, lost lot of knowledge there. He will be missed Condolences to His family and friends Tony
  2. I have always believed the best soil in the world is where you can farm ,raise a family and make enough to pay the bills and buy mama a new piece of furniture at end of year and send the kids to school. So, for me , the best soil on earthwas a section of dirt on Polk and Adams AV. In Fresno , Ca.

All these frame guys are so busy they hardly want to talk to you much less if you have a IH . Lol it will have rack & pinion power steering and disk brakes. going to do disk brakes on rear also tony

  9. Darn at my age the Red girls look so much more alluring .!
  10. Yes that's it ! My Dad bought it new in 63 and we used it for all our hay until 74 i did not realize till I started this that it was designed in Calif for Calif . Don't remember sales people telling us that but it was noted on the add. I H did have a depo and did manufacture tillage tools for the crawlers in Stockton California . Their main parts depo was in Oakland , Ca. I will pursue more info on this . tony
  11. That's a good discription it is built like a tank book says weighs in at 6200 lbs less six rolls of wire and fluids. Six rolls wire about 600 lbs tony
  12. I have ridden shotgun in Petey from Pine Island to Wisconsin RPRU . its a cream puff ! Dirtboz & IH logos along with a load of Red cant count the thumbs up we got ! thanks for the experience ! tony
  13. This is my running restored 55W and my 55W donner that is probably going to contribute more to the 71 then the original 55 . At least I have some templates of how things flow Tony
  14. Three days of hot washing and I may have 90% of grease and oil off. Lol found new modern heavy side rim and aircraft tire matching size of old aircraft tire and double rings on rims old rims now need to find a match for light side book calls for 750 X 16 ten ply the current wheel on heavy side is off my 55W so I can match it with rim and same size as 10 ply implement with aircraft tire. Then I'll pull her into shop and began tear down . after getting the grease and years of accumilation off her I see previous owner did not abuse her but he got every penny of wear off of her. Finding that many knotter parts have same part number as the 55W , I happen to have a parts donner for the 55W i think this is going to be a fun restoration I put an ad in Ag Source Magazine out here trying to find a donner . I don't expect to find on but worth a try . my serial is 63-29 that tells me 29th made in 63 , they started production in 62 and ended in 65 . Not many out there tony

    Your so right . I see kids telling the parents they should not drive or they should consider a home and in my opinion its all for the kids comfort and preservation of estate. "Dollars" In my case , I have people telling me I should travel abroad and spend more time at the coast. Otherwise I am not enjoying my elder years or my retirement. I tell them give me my shop , my greasy cantankrous old projects, my living in the country , my Motor home to explore the flyover country , and the **** with traveling abroad and getting caught in tourist traps and the **** with big Cities , Stick your Pruis where the shine don't shine and give me an old dirty Duramax and a gooseneck trailer, and greasy carhartt coveralls.. I tell my City kids if your try to interfere in my lifestyle till I die ,you will be the ones receiving the ONE Dollar, Mentioned in the will, The trust is a living document, can be changed anytime as long as I am of sound mine, lol,lol. Think I've known my attorney long enough that He can tell if I am sound or not. May be harsh but I hate to see relatives ",DO WHAT IS BEST " for their loved ones without listening or considering the parents happiness. My FIL is 92 and has to have a driving test every two years and he just passed it, good till 94 and the two girls are all nervous , I told them if you want to kill your Dad take his keys and they say what if he causes an accident and my answer is ;"**** he has had insurance for ever and never needed it that what his policy is for and as far as he hurting someone with the car " ",**** he does not drive fast enough to kill anyone". lol. Like they say in medical care , You Have To Be Your Own Advocate ! Tony
