  1. Helping Rusty on the technical side of posting photos. Here's the photos of the 404.
  2. Your PIE is in the mail.... Congratulations on making another lap around the Sun!!
  3. I'll be there... someone has to haul the kitchen for making pies... the boys have the tractor job.
  4. Can't Tell you much about the fixing, but I can tell you driving one, make sure you have the air-ride suspension. out of the different years driving, the 12's didn't have as many issues as others, just all depends on the engine. the rest is alright. I would encourage inspecting the crossmembers though, as those will crack- and on top, where you cant see.
  5. Add me in for all Australian built tractors. (there's only 30 some models) contact me at sagallow"at"yahoo.com.au Same requirements as the others - emails/phone numbers kept private. RD
  6. Keep this thread going,I reconize some of the names and places mentioned here as I read this in the land down under. I have passed through some interesting places in my tractor quests. I have had some interesting conversations as well with the "locals". I am thankfull Dr. E dragged out a few miles to Montana to look at T-40 a few years back. As the towns or people are mentioned I can say,,,I been there,I met him! Yes ,Gary,Write the book. Rusty Farmer
  7. Rusty's Daughter, I hadn't thought of one, but you've got me thinking. I retire in less than a year and a half. I am involved in two different books, one assisting and another I'm writing, on Reeves steam engines. I will give your idea some thought. I don't do these things for the money or recognition. I do it to preserve history and my proud heritage on a Montana dirt farm. Just the pictures I have on other Red Power threads would be quite interesting, but I'm thinking of my late cousin's widow and all of the stuff she has regarding the neighboring operation he and his father had. I think our combined families there could have come up with more than 50 IH tractors and 20 IH trucks in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Gary This IS history - and definantly something to be proud of! Us dirt kids (both in the east of the USA and here in Australia) don't really know what it's like to be a farmer in the land of the big sky - it would be an eye-opener to be able to read about first-hand experiences of life that way! I would look forward to reading such a book!
  8. OBG - Ever thought about doing a picture book/ family type history of these photos - along with the stories? it would be great to have - as many said before - there aren't many photos around of that time!
