  1. I think it was a grain cart...

    My son is 7 and he has been obsessed with the Edmund Fitzgerald since I told him about it a year ago. We listen to the Gordon Lightfoot song all the time and we watched the 1995 History Channel Documentary about it on Sunday. He has made a several cardboard box replicas and drawings of the Mighty Fitz. He even prays for the 29 men aboard every night at bedtime. I'm guessing there aren't many other 2nd graders out there that know or care about a ship that sank 37 years before they were born....
  3. Sorry to hear this. Prayers for you and your family...

  5. I thought it was odd that 483 and 483B both cross referenced to PPG 81518. Upon further research, 483B contained rust inhibitor, but is the same shade. Learn something new every day!
  6. According to my notes, it's IH483 (Federal Yellow) / PPG 81518. There is a slightly different shade called 483B that was used in the early to mid 70's. Hope this helps you!
  7. And here we have a McCormick-"Deere"ing Model R with 4 cylinders. Traction might be a bit of a problem.... This was taken at the Divide County Threshing Show in Crosby, ND.
  8. This is how a REAL champion acts.
  9. I know this isn't related to any IH tractors or Montana farms, but this item was found on a North Dakota farm that uses IH tractors and this forum has such a wealth of knowledge and experience that somebody will likely recognize what this thing is. I found this round stone in an old dilapidated building we were cleaning up around 20 years ago. It has a steel loop in the center that is riveted in and is flattened like a leather strap might have been run through it. The only other thing I can think is it was a lid for some type of crock and the metal loop was a handle. Does anybody have an idea what is was used for? Thanks! Travis

  11. I don't know if anyone watched this show after the SuperBowl. The guy is a talented singer, but the pickup in the background was far more interesting to me! Check it out... https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=116&v=CEtnKTOk0ds
  12. Cool1566, I too have seen the photos with the black centers. I've never seen a real tractor like that, though. I think Ertl even used that photo on the back of the packaging for some of their toy 3588s. I heard or read somewhere years ago that those tractors with black wheels were for the Canadian (or maybe some other export) market. I know there was a Canadian version of the 33 & 3588 brochure printed.
  13. It's kind of Interesting that the 1586 has cast duals and flat top fenders. I'm assuming that's a 15 because that looks like the cast center for a 4" axle...
  14. If you look at the CaseIH 255 http://www.tractordata.com/farm-tractors/001/1/4/1144-caseih-255-dimensions.html , It shows the same ag tire sizes as the 254, but it also lists turf tires. I don't know if this will help you or not.
  15. I have quite a few of the Craftsman 19.2 tools. The oldest are about 10-12 years old and I use the new Li-ion high-capacity 4 A/hr. batteries in all of them. Switching to Li-ion makes them 5X the tool they were with Ni-cad! The only thing to watch out for, as mentioned previously, is you have to use a Li-ion charger or a multi-chemistry charger for Li-ion batteries or you could have a fire. I don't know about the very first 19.2 tools, but I have even used the 19.2 Lithium batteries in a craftsman 18.0v drill and it worked fine. No adapters needed.
