    30 years ago the salvage yards in Sikeston had a huge pile of frame rails engines and fan shrouds out of the 68 series binders.If i had only bought them all for scrap!

    Used to be a guy here that converted them.  Had one at an equipment auction and represented it as such. Also sold the rails and 550. I think they bought $50.00. A guy that had a 1468 got them. 

  2. Having run a few of those trucks back then I can tell you spend a little more on the body work. If you don’t the problem will just come back. The inner fenders around the hood hinges,cab  corners, floor pans and the core support all need close attention.

    What tractor is that wheel on in the picture?  Looks like a solid wheel.

    That’s my 560D. Just leaned it against there for the picture.

    They were advertised as Cub Cadet weights. But when I saw them in person  I knew they weren’t . Seller realized it also after someone passed on them. I also knew they were a lot more uncommon than Cub weights so I took them anyway. Don’t fit anything I have. So far.

    Humpf! I just found a tight Supermatic with three barrels. I’ll trade you bills. I start breaking out in hives when things approach four figures.

    Mother found this old pic the other day. Our first born, I told her I wanted to get him a horseback as soon as possible. She finally relented at 3 months.?

    He was a natural growing up. Has more ability and patience with young and bad horses than I ever had. 


    Your wife was different than my mom. Rode just about every day until she was seven months along with me. Finally couldn’t get her leg over the saddle.
