  4. Dairy Farmer I worked for during 3 H.S. summers had a AC 60 to combine his oats. It had a 2 bag Scour Kleen on it to separate out the weed seed, that got fed to the hogs. He pulled it with his Farmall 300.

  7. I think that's LB D400 model engine. I have a LB handbook you can have, I don't have LBs anymore.
  8. Back in early 70's I delivered a used model 91 and helped the farmer get started in an oat field. Was the planetary steering similar to that of the model 201 windrower?
  9. We were there yesterday when that Mogul got started. The steamer finally got lined up to the sawmill after a few adjustments.
  10. I'm less than a hour south of farm. Any relation to Russell B. ? Great photos!
  11. Hostas/ Funkia/ Plantain Lily do well in shade. Ground covers tolerant in shade probably best. As you experienced grass under trees is a challenge & never ending reseeding annually. Do you have irrigation & fertilization ? I was down in McKinney area visiting friends a few years ago & I think Zone 8 is your Hardiness Map area. Also Sedum/Stonecrop species with over 300 varieties might be another choice to look at... Hire your neighbor lady to be your yard consultant !

  17. Very interesting video. In mid sixties we helped Neighboring Dairy thresh oats. I don't remember any steam or horses, probably used their W-6 on thresher as that tractor was their largest power. I think I helped feed thresher...
  18. Drivers' Ed car was 60's Chrysler/Dodge 4 door Boat with front passenger brake. Don't remember driving it. But summer of '65 at age 14, I was driving the farms 1960 IHC 3/4 T pickup (Six'/4spd) from second farm through town's main street to get to home farm. As luck would have it, I avoided the town cop and made it back without incident. I had a sigh of relief after reaching out skirts of town. Summer of '67, still working on same Dairy farm I had temps, so no hurry to get D. license. Finally had time off & got dad's '62 Rambler American 2 door 3 on tree for getting DL. DMV tester had me drive around Mad City & stopped me on a hill. He said pull parking brake, leave out of gear. The car started to roll back; he said Stop! I said the parking brake was not working. Then I drove on. DMV tester did pass me, but noted to Fix Parking Brake on paper work. Passed the first test so extra driving time helped ... I guess. I don't remember if the parking brake ever got fixed...
