  1. Red Power Round Up 2018

    The phone number that is listed (tour chairman) for the tours is next to impossible to get a hold so far. When finally was able to speak to a live person, lady had no clue what was going on. Said to call back tomorrow. Hope that can get resolved sooner than later. Really want to see the cotton gin tour, maybe the riverboat.
  2. Letter Series at Work

    Like Hillman said about them "W" series, SW6 got me into IH as kid. Had this old girl out for its 65th year to pliƩ snow. Not an action shot, but the snow flying & tire chains were a digging once the door was opened. My great uncle brought it new, my Grandfather brought the tractor from him 2yrs later. My Dad said it had higher compression pistons installed & a clutch at the same time. Far as he knows that was it for major mechanical repairs.
  3. My W series collection

    I brought that same tractor at an auction also, but it was last summer. Seems there very slowly coming out of the wood work.
  4. White 9700

    Neighbour had 5 of those combines, but they were 9720's. Must have ran them for at least 15yrs, harvested close to a township of land with them beasts. Now there running latest jd's because of local dealer support.
  5. An IH day in the cold & snow

    It means its 60 degree north of the earth's equator. Or in Canada it is boundary line between the Western Provinces & our 3 northern territories. Just like the 49th.
  6. White demos.

    Wonder why toy company's make white M's. Since there was none made by IH in full size. Friends of mine own the set of 3, they sharp.
  7. Is all DEF fluid the same

    I have been working of diesel truck engines since 2010 & now diesel tractors that use def. The trucking industry sure had big learning curve compared to ag. I like def, since it arrived engine mfg were able to get horse power back that was taken away before. Far as I'm concerned get egr! Rebutting soot is not engines are made for. Everybody used to be worried about dusting an engine. Egr makes worse mess inside. All def is suppose to measure around 32.5% contrate. But have run into def that was below & above that %. The sensors & scr's can tell when it's not right. In trucks def never sits long enough to crystallize, not sure about yet as sits a lot of the time.
  8. My W series collection

    I started in 1995 with the Teeswater SW6 up to present day. Micheal have you ever seen an AW6 as a toy? The toy dealer from Davidson SK that had #9 WD'9s, said could order them with or without glass cover.
  9. My W series collection

    Thank you SledgeHammer. Found out where #9 tandem WD9's went to Davidson Sk. Guy that used to own it is a toy collector/dealer since the 80's had it. He sold the pair of tractors off, kept the board/glass & put something else in there. Not sure why he did that, but that's the story on number 9. #2 is being sold on Kijiji right now with massive 4WD collection for close to $30,000. I called seller about buying just the pair of 9's, but that was a no go.
  10. My W series collection

    Took my tractor collection to a toy show in Saskatoon Saskatchewan, 3hrs from home. As a kid did couple farm displays, that's was some time ago.
  11. McCormick OS6 Restoraton

    I'm impressed with your sheet metal work. Its so odd looking to me to not see the exhaust come out the hood. But I under why it doesn't, just never been around an orchard tractor before. Glad your doing it so I can follow along, thanks for sharing.
  12. McCormick OS6 Restoraton

    Great story, thanks for sharing this with us. Did your Grandfather have some sort of orchard to have 3 of those tractors? Those brake housing almost look like there from a Super series. I collect real & toy W series tractors. Having the Toy store in Le Mars Iowa make me a toy 04 from a W4. Cool looking tractor you there.

    Huber Brothers of WI had a Super W6 lp gas @ RPRU 2016. Beautifully restored tractor!
