  1. Don't. get. me. started! My dad bought a used 5165 AW in good shape about 2 years ago. I mix 6-10 tons a week with it for him. I love the mill, the ability to grind 4 tons at a time, the hydraulic upload auger, and hydraulic elevation/swing on the unloading auger. I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate the unloading system itself! Apparently Art got Rube Goldberg to design it. That ring gear/worm setup for raising the unloading auger if it's a manual model is dumber than @#@! as well. A self-contained hydraulic system (Gehl) and the Gehl style unloading auger would make it a heckuva
  2. Interesting. I'm guessing somebody has switched seat brackets or something. What is the engine serial number? Either way, it looks like a good one. I just got a Super AV this spring. It'll take a lot to get it as nice as yours! Al
  3. Very cool! I keep seeing that the Cub will be celebrated (75th anniversary) and I've messaged a couple people but please don't forget the Super A will be 75 in '22 as well! I have a Super A that would meet "in the family since new." '22 is a long way out but I might be interested in showing. Al
  4. Yep, new website is still useless....... Al
  5. I'm still around. I mostly lurk now and then. Not proud to say it but keeping up with numbers has kinda fallen by the wayside. To tell the truth I never really got a whole lot of numbers to start with. A few years ago I had a chance to purchase a legit '47 Super A. I'm sort of at a point where if I buy a tractor I sell one, so the 856 found a new home. I know exactly where it's at, a friend bought it and it has a good home. More importantly, it's actually getting used! Al
  6. Yes. This has made it basically useless for me. Al
  7. Do you see a serial number on the engine? Will be on a flat spot on the upper right corner of the block behind the magneto/distributor. That can help get you closer though it would not match the tractor serial number. The Q code on the engine, bellhousing, and Transmission suggests a fairly early tractor, probably a '48 model. The S code on the touch control suggests to me it's been replaced at some point since that part would have been cast in '49. (Your Q codes made my ears perk up as I am looking for an early Touch Control with a Q code!) Hope this helps..... Al
  8. Mills International in Kinston, NC, in business since 1967, prior to this they were West Machinery Co. West moved into a new Prototype building in the early '50s. CNH made a "BS" move and jerked their contract recently.
  9. In the US they officially dropped Deering in mid-1949 I have a 1950 Super A with original paint, built around the time of the white demos (it's not one though) and it still has McCormick-Deering Farmall decals. These are the later ones with the IH emblem. Al
  10. Never been around a 350U but the 424 does have an 8 speed transmission, so speed selection is pretty good. My dad's 424 has neither live pto or power steering--but it does have spin out rear wheels......I've thought about trying to talk him into letting me swap them onto my 404 but I hate to change it...... Al
  11. I've never tried it but the old Mahindras are the same basic system. If you have a good parts diagram you might be able to cross-reference stuff. Al
  12. Yeah the factory handles for remote valves are under the seat......kinda strange but it worked I guess...... My dad's 424 survived my teenage years.....they are very durable! Does it have power steering? Al
  13. It's looking more and more like caseIH/Fiat/whatever has abandoned eastern NC--or decided to give it all to BS! Al
  14. 424 all day, every day, if the hydraulics work right and it has power steering. Hydraulic parts, and most importantly the people that know how to work on that system, are getting very hard to find. If the 424 is a diesel, be sure you can find somebody that is familiar with that engine--I don't know anything about parts availability on those. If it doesn't have power steering I'd think real hard. Non-power steering models handle like a log cart! Al
  15. I saw a repro dealer sticker for Wallace Motor & Implement Co. in Wallace, NC. This was the dealer my family dealt with. Here's an ad from them, announcing the Farmall Cub. You couldn't farm here without a Cub, Super A, or 140. When the 140 was introduced, this dealer ordered 200 of them at one time...... Al
