  2.   Thank You Guys for the birthday wishes !

         It was a good day, but no new tractors,trucks , or parts .

         I will try to negotiate with Santa for a BS 1466 but Santa says to heavy and big for sleigh and Carol says its too heavy for her pocket book.

          Again thank you for the birthday wishes .

    I must say Tony you do get stuff done, a lot happens in your weeks and all of it top shelf😊

    Thank You ,

       These projects take so long that I have to keep pushing to get done.

        At least the farm equipment restorations that I do here at home , I have some control over and know what's next but these pick up resto's that a shop does, its always a hurry up and wait situation and after two years and three months ,I start to push a little. 

     the "Redkid" pick up that I had done before this one took three years first resto then I needed more updates and it took another year and a half.  In all honesty I'll be 76 in fourteen days and i am running out of five year restoration increments !lol lol.

       In most resto's by time your in building mode most of the heavy money has been spent on repairs or mods and if something was to happen to me or builder the project is worthless if not a runner or at least a roller, plus if one does not stay on top of it , its easy to loose interest' especially with checks going out every month . lol lol.

    I met you & Mel at Union Grove RPRU. If I remember correctly Mel is more into track layers/machines.

    That plow owner recently bought it & was trying to dial it in, but he was still trying to adjust  through the years of neglect that  accumulated...

      Yes , I remember great visit !  Thanks for reminder .

        Yes Mel's main interest is I.H. crawlers but he also dabbles in I.H. orchard tractors and old #39 plow and one I.H. 55W baler among others .

    But!but!but! It’s going to get dirty!!!!

    I know ! It hurts ! Lol 

    however , I have a portable water softener that I’ll hook up to pressure washer hopefully have her cleaner then now . 
    All my tractors since I have painted them have never had water on them , but it’s getting to point that cast areas around bolts etc are needing a wash .

  6.  Well , I am doing it !  Going to plow with my beloved Goldie !

          Usually do fun pull what you brought pulls at our shows ,  I have taken it to Santa Margarita Ranch Cat digs and played with three point vee ripper with it but never got into some serious plowing . 

       She has been a little restless in the stable so were are going to put a little time on her.

        I have a #642 plow but it needed couple of wear parts that I broke moving it with forklift. Darn can't blame anyone !

        My dear neighbors , EDDIE AND CHRIS, NOT ONLY LOANED ME THEIR #642 BUT HOOKED IT UP FOR ME AND SERVICED IT . 

       They made sure I had no excuse !

    Should be a fun weekend plowing on Saturday and Pulling on Sunday.

  8. Rollovers were used exclusively our here in Central Valley , Ca . 
    started with the #39 rope pull two bottom then , fast hitch two bottom first hydraulic rollover in 1955 , #314 fast hitch three bottom rollover that came with our 560 new 

    I believe the #642 was the first IH four bottom , then on to 145 ‘s and  newer five bottoms .

    Here is my #642 four bottom set up ready for plow days next Saturday and pictures of restored rollovers that I have used in my farming career

    BTW the fast hitch prongs on the 314 three bottom  were reversed for  transportation .
