  1. believe it mounts behind a middle buster on a tool bar used in arid areas, as in western us, plants deeper to moisture, plants almost any larger seeded crop uses different seed plates, wheels are shaped like a disc, set at an angle to cover seed and drive seed plate. the flat iron attached at the first bolt is not original (not used). use as many as you have busters.
  2. I like the homemade? fenders on this tractor
  3. Try Johnson ripper, than image, or johnson mfg.

    Farming

    Here's a joke my dad always told. Not sure where he got it. Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbour. Communism: You have two cows. You give them to the government, and the government then gives you some milk. Fascism: You have two cows. You give them to the government, and the government then sells you some milk. Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Nazism: You have two cows. The government takes both and shoots you.
  5. Stepn I thought about a side elevator, but it looks like the elevator is locked inside the door way. it could be mounted though. Probably a paddle elevator. I've seen old time photos of mule drawn wagons along side corn pickers. looks like the machine is new, no paint worn off on the plant lifters, and no cotton locks on machine. that wide thread tractor came out in 1928, or 9, just after their 3 row model C, which they changed the model name to GP. Southern farmers didn't like a 3 row tractor, so they simply put 2 twin wheels in front and widened the back axles, for a 2-4 row, like farmall
  6. Gary I could'nt figure out this photo, the give away is the cotton scraps on the ground, and the low bar across the front of the header, it's a cotton stripper, mounted on a jd GP wide tread, there were two rollers inside, very much like a corn picker, but with short 1/2" long pins in the rollers, notice the sprockets, with the roller chains on the side, I'm guessing there are kickers inside to clean the cotton, and move it to the back, with rods or mesh bottom. I'm thinking the elevator on the back right may need to be attached to the back of the machine yet, for cot to go in towed wagon? m
  7. Texas governor Abbott has just opened the bars, the melon can come inside now !😬
  8. ford moved operators station forward also, i believe jd was the last to do this, if they ever did. I though that was the best idea in a long time, mostly to get up out ou'tta the dust. what's strange is MM had it on only the G1000, and for only 3 years, then all later models went back to old style. actually I believe allis or ford was the first to switch places with operator and flue tank, might have been moved to use a larger tank. that 21- 32 was a well liked tractor, i've got a parts tractor 21-32 w/ two forward gears as the first few experimentals used a 12-20 chassis.
  9. seems like Pontiac also had a 1/2 V8 back in tempest days. complete with curved drive shaft
  10. Those MMs were cubic inch brutes. I think they must have had either poor advertising or poor dealership network because to me it looks like they should have been much better sellers. That water in the oil I believe was a common fault. It seems the water pump was gear driven and attached to the front of the timing gear cover. So when the seal went bad, water got in the oil, or this is what I've been told. It's my understanding the diesel engines were worse than the gas models. The later 50 & 55 series such as the 1350 & 1355, they supposedly fixed the problem with a completely dif
  11. weld them to a rod and with the threaded housing make a weather vane 😊
  12. is that the makers tag on the frame under the lift lever pivot bolt, in 3rd photo?
  13. the wide position was for running on top (straddle ) a bed, (ridge) when rebedding (splitting) beds, usually using a front mount bedder
  14. what was that 5/8" thread smooth stud in the front of the frame rail for?
