  1. Had the rims powder coated silver and then mounted the tires ourselves. A week later and the tubes are still holding air so we must have done something right. The 240 has 5.50-16 kelly Springfield multi rib implement tires up front and it now has 12.4-36 BKT rear tires. The tractor has a slight rake forwards. I’m not sure if 6.00-16 front tires would make it sit raked back to much or if it would sit just slightly raked back like I want it. But the 5.50-16 implement tires on it now aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
  2. It is a good feeling when four days later your brand new rear tires and tubes are still holding air, especially when you mounted them yourself. Was a little worried we pinched a tube, but all is good. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas
  3. 1st picture- 1960s homelite my great-grandpa bought 2nd picture- 1980s jonsereds my dad used as a teen 3rd pic- the big saw, with a 24” bar I don’t know if these are cool saws but I like them
  4. Ordered a pair of 12.4-36 BKT tires and tubes from a local tire shop. The rims are at the sandblaster right now. The plan is to have the rims powder coated silver. Was originally going to have them galvanized but the shop said they where afraid the rims would warp so they don’t want to do it.
  5. Decided it is time to change the rear tires and fix the rims. The old tires were hard, dry rotted, and they didn’t match each other. Both rims have some rust damage.
  6. Took about 2 weeks of PB blaster and a little heat to get this pto shaft to move. Cranked down on the hoist one night, walked away and the two pieces finally slide from each other with a very loud pop.
  7. And today we drilled 28 holes and bolted the wood onto the frame. Eventually I’ll take the wood back off, have the frame sandblasted and then paint the frame red. Used deck boards and cut them 4ft long. I think it turned out great and fairly close to an original carryall. I’m not to worried about cutting up the post hole digger. It was beyond saving, and now we built something awesome and usable out of scrap metal. Will try to sell the pto shaft and auger so they won’t go to scrap.
  8. My dad and I decided to build a fast hitch carryall from the post hole digger frame. Started by adding metal to the fast hitch prongs. Then cut the frame to length. Had plenty of metal left in the U we cut off, so the uprights on the carry all frame are cut off of the post hole digger frame on the ground in picture 2. Picture 3, welded a cross member to keep the fast hitch prongs at the right spacing. Picture 4, welding the uprights and a cross member for them. And then the completed frame.
  9. Well the post hole digger gear box is a hot mess. Main shaft was welded up and ground with out a lathe, so that is very bad. Both gears are very worn and in rough shape. It was missing half the bearings when I got it. When I put replacement bearings in it made all the tolerances to tight and the gears wouldn't turn. Only way it would turn is when we spaced the top cover out with washers, which ain’t right since this is supposed to have gear oil in it. Basically the gear box is sketchy and beyond saving. I am unwilling to hook my tractor to it and turn to pto on, for fear of the gearbox l
  10. High compression pistons? Didn’t know we put something fancy in. Pistons, rods, and sleeves all came in a kit. Thanks for the advice on the transmission. There is a zero percent chance I will hook my 240 to a pulling sled, but I will use it for plowing as much as I can.
  11. I had my fast hitch disc plow hooked up to the 240, so after the show ended the yard owner let me plow his garden back behind where we had the show. Plow worked great.
  12. John Deere R I’m not a John Deere guy, but that R was impressive to see start up with the pony motor.
  13. A good friend of mine, Tj01 on here, started an antique tractor association in our county and starting working with a local tractor equipment lot owner about doing a show. I helped them get the yard ready for the show and yesterday was the show. Had about 30 tractors show up and there was a nice steady stream of people all day. Since this was our first show it was free admission and free to bring a tractor. It went really well so TJ and I are already thinking about doing another show.
