  1. Your buddy Mel should be turning dirt also , but he never lets us know what he is bringing . Lol tony
  2. 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. Tony

  4. 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 . tony

  11. 10/4/21 Question for you guys ! look at bed see the stakes around bed ? two options ; 1st paint stakes red use 1x12 board line it with thin polished stainless covering both sides inside and out all way around bed . 2nd option ; chrome stakes use good quality 1x12 and Polyurethane it to the hilt all way around . Pictures for reference . the floor will be black powder coat Diamond plate , tank will be Red with chrome mounting frame and hold down straps . Lift will be red with yellow zinc coated chain . Sides of bed and head board will all be red , bottom of bed and frame black tell me you thoughts on each option please Tony
  12. 10/4/21 End by end of day . propane tank back from blasting , now to propane co for new valves etc . the lift’s motor and gear box has been rebuilt and painted and is being mocked up . Estimating measurements of tires and bed , however , wheels are not here yet so trying with just the tire . tony
  13. 11/4/21 setting bed for additional measurements . kinda gives us a picture of what truck will look like . still waiting on wheels ! Tony
  14. I am wanting original but it is dished pretty deep and makes it pretty tight with new column and seat done up with more padding . have two others in mind we’ll see what works best Tony

  23. 10/30/21 Not a lot of Red here but never less we had a tractor drive Central Cal ! they traveled 21 miles to a fantastic BBQ provided by Scoto Bros of Merced . after lunch they traveled back to starting point making 42 mile Drive. 32 tractors made it to lunch . They traveled through Residential , industrial , by the old Castle Air Force base and out through vineyards and orchards all lined and speckled with old oak trees . lunch rendezvous was at a old sprawling beautiful Parreira Dairy farm under the oaks along the Merced River and because of a nice rain here last week the setting could not be nicer. I did not take a tractor this year , I had the pickup and a big tool box just in case . my pictures are little limited but I wanted to share a great tractor day with you guys and assure you that next year there will be more Red ! Lol the restored IH , Chevy , Studebaker trucks belonged to Mr Parreira the dairy and landowner and the old equipment was a retirement yard on the farm . the pic of the old Oliver Baler and tractor is to show one of our members , Eddie , what he missed ! Lol He likes IH but loves Oliver ! Imagine that ! BTW what do you think of that BBQ pit ? tony
