  7. 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 . tony
  8. Your buddy Mel should be turning dirt also , but he never lets us know what he is bringing . Lol tony
  9. 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

  11. 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

  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 11/4/21 setting bed for additional measurements . kinda gives us a picture of what truck will look like . still waiting on wheels ! Tony
  21. 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
  22. Like a farmer does not have enough obstacles in his life ! Hope they catch the scumbag , put him away a long time ! Tony
