    Chamberlain tractors were manufactured in West Australia starting after WW2.

    They were part owned by John Deere when the tractor in the photo was built in the 1980s. These Chamberlains were powered by JD engines.

    Here is one from 1969

    Getting ready to start up the threshing machine for harvest. Might need to look for a new drive belt from Goodyear.

    How does one go about repairing a belt?

    I think this might be a re-run already posted but its one I never get tired of. One of the more popular tractors up this way was the McCormick W9.

    I dont think i had ever seen a W series until getting onto this forum.  Definitely non existent in my part of IL

    ...and now the flue thing kids have had.....10pm last night guess whos been at the throne head first 5x tonight.  Ughhh....i haven't been sick sick for many moons and many snows

    I was sick Tuesday morning as soon as my alarm went off at 2am.  Did my usual route all day....nothing worse than being on the road and being sick.  Plenty of stops alongside the road and convenient store bathrooms.

    In all the times I visited I never had the chance to see a game; and I have friends there who are big "tailgaters" but it just never worked out. I have toured the grounds, bought souvenirs at the book store, visited the church but that is about all relating to the Irish.

    BTW, best restaurant is Tippecanoe, in the old Studebaker Mansion.

    I need to check out that museum next time I am in town.  Weren't Olivers made in South Bend also?

    If you ever have the chance to visit the area of South Bend, Indiana, I highly recommend a visit to the Studebaker museum there. I had the opportunity to travel there many times over the years on business and taking customers to the museum was always a hit! Here are just a few of my favourites:

    I've been reading some of the posts about the snow on the corn still in the fields. I guess on the bright side at least a guy does not have to sit out on an open tractor and  corn picker trying to harvest in the cold miserable weather. Like this cover photo from 1949 of a DC Case pulling a 2 row machine. Interesting to see how the wagon is pulled along by the tractor as well.

    i've been thinking that the past couple weeks here in NW IL...thinking how I wouldn't want to be driving a mounted picker in this kind of weather BUT our grandfathers and fathers did it.  My grandpa would always say..."I didn't pick corn till the beginning of November"

    JD offered them right up to the end of the 2 cylinders.  Beyond that I’m not sure.  

    BBG, what year would that be, I'm not well versed in yellow wheels.

    I'd guess that ad at the late 1940s and there was still a place for steel wheels here anyway. Thousands of acres of bush land being cleared and it took a tractor on steel wheels to work it down with a bush disk or plow. 

    In 1949 you could still buy a manure spreader on steel wheels from Minneapolis Moline.

    do you have any idea what year steel was still offered as a FACTORY option for tractors?

    I know we had a booth up there (Agri-King)...I had to help package up some displays and a few bags of our more in-demand products to get shipped up there.  I would like to go to a show like this and learn about the dairy business and dairy farmers.  I figure if I'm working in the business, I better learn about it also and not just be a dummy delivering to farms that I have no concept of their operations.

    I live on 154 just  a 1/2 mile West of Loganville

    I rolled through there a few weeks ago and the creek was pretty high. I noticed that the baseball diamond was mostly under water.
