  1. WOW Great job on that paint, it looks like it just rolled off the assembly line
  2. On Friday December 6, 2019 one of my four brothers passed away of a apparent heart attack and he wasn't found for two days, he died while preparing to take a shower and if it wasn't for his neighbor it would've been probably a few more days until someone found him, he was suppose to be getting ready to go somewhere with one of his neighbors who lives in his gated community up around Lexington, Ky. and the neighbor knocked on his door that Friday night and John didn't answer and he went by there Saturday and still no answer and so on Sunday the neighbor got really worried and called the local Sheriffs Dept. for a welfare check on him and they kicked in the front door and found my brother John dead face down in the bathroom and he was also a paraplegic in a wheelchair since 1984 when he broke his back and severed his spinal cord in a motorcycle wreck. My brother was 59 and retired from the University of Kentucky where he was a director for a program with the Ag Dept that helped farmers adapt there equipment to use if they had lost a limb or were paralyzed and etc. It was called Agriability and he always had a booth setup at the NFMS for UK. We buried him closed casket and beside our Dad and he was pretty much wore out with all the health problems having to do with the paralysis, its hard on the body and heart also. And two days after we buried our brother we had to put our 88 year old Mother in assisted living place in Louisville so we are going to sell her house and his house also, he had no will and if your reading this do your family a big favor and go get you a will made out today or tomorrow cause without that piece of paper you family has to get a lawyer and its just a pain in the butt believe me, so please do this they will thank you next time they see ya. We said I bet brother John is in heaven with Daddy and Dad is timing his two mile runs now that God gave him back his legs, he hated the paralysis. I just hope I don't live another December for a long time cause it was all pretty heavy on me and all my family dealing with all this but we prevailed by the grace of God.
  3. That's Jim Hayes on his Screamin Eagle 806 and the shields says he is from New York area so anybody ever remember this puller from that place. Looks like the 806 is running two turbos and probably a intercooler setup and screamin those rpms
  4. He could pull with Danny Dean anyday of the week and beat him a lot and during his tenure with this tractor it ruled the 12,000lb and 9,000lb super stock class from the early 70s to the mid80s was his time and then he kinda faded away and quit but he was a tough one.
  5. Ive never seen a V8 with turbos so Ive never heard one with turbos but Id bet they sound tough and wish somebody would load one up on here so we could hear how good they sound and aint that a sharp looker with the big rubber and turbos
  6. That is right why I put brothers I don't know, my typin was goin faster than my mind
  7. No I got a Massey 1130 cause it was so cheap and had all original belongings, never could know why he sold me that tractor for $2200 but I didn't stand their and argue with him
  8. I stopped by my old neighbors and had another look over that ole 1066 Ive been telling yall Ive been wanting for the past couple years and we agreed to the buy yesterday so come next spring this ole gal is comin outta here retirement hay barn and comin home with me and as you can see it has all the original sheet metal and even has the little tool box under right side battery tray, them little boxes are always missing on used 66s and this tractor used to be our dealership used lot tractor we bought it my brothers told me in Illinois off a local farmer here in Columbia, Ky brother who farms up there, it belonged to his brother and he bought it new and we ended up selling to him first and he already had a nice almost new 1973 Farmall 766 and he had a dairy but he sold out in the early or mid80s and my neighbor who lived across the road from us bought this off the man before the auction so Ray owned it from 1986 or 87 and he pulled a 5-16s on land plow and a 12ft IH disk and pulled a square and then a rollbaler, Ray died in August of 1988 and his son took over their beef cow and tobacco operation, he was the local FFA instructor. Ive already got it on the 1066 registry and it needs a rebuilt shift levers on both H L and 1 2 3 4. Needs lights probably and definitely needs two new batteries with new battery trays and he has the battery covers will be getting a 5 inch wide by 4 foot tall chrome pipe and its still has the original muffler on it right now. It came outta the factory with 18.4-34s which I hate there two small and short Id like to go to 20.8-34s a much better matched tire and not as tall as the 38s, just like that look and I'm gonna stay with the 11L-15s on the front, that was a good front tire for that tractor and they will quad ribbed. Ive been wanting this tractor for years and finally persistently pays off as it did yesterday and the price was fair I will say but you wont be recognizing it after I do to it what I want to do to it. Its been in this same spot going on 6 or 7 years and its not locked up believe me and did ya notice how old this old hay barn is its got the inside room made out of ole logs and it was built new like that and Id say its maybe close to Civil War old, that is the inside original part and my buddies great grandfathers house from then still stands but it out from this picture about 150 yards and he made a cut inside his livin room to keep eye on his livestock and chickens etc. so the Yankee Army wouldn't be stealing his stock and their was a large battle not maybe five miles north of here The Battle of Tebbs Bend and their was units from Michigan both cavalry and infantry swarming all over this area looking for General John Hunt Morgans Raiders and they would get mad at our local folks and steal their chickens and hogs for retribution for not givin info on our boys..........dam Yankees..........haha
  9. Redtop I second that and third that and on and on. IH and CaseIH are about the top pullers in the country now wouldn't you think we would have a pulling board, hum, YES.
  10. The first pic of that 1456 puller is from 1970 and the second one is from 1967 and that 1206 traveled 5,000 miles that year pulling and the third is Gene Donaldson sitting in Broadbent Arena waiting to pull probably in the late 1980s, he passed away in 1990 or 1991 and his son has resurrected the old tractor and pulls with it and that last pic is one of the Kohl brothers on one wild ride, these ole boys pulled for years and were tough and they say you can still see one of his 1206 pullers working on the farm with the 30.5s still on it
  11. I bet your talking about Jimmy with the long gray beard, he has been at the E-town dealership he told me when he was hired in 1982
  12. This is the place in E-Town, Ky. my brother is shop foreman and in the picture of inside the shop that's his office in the windows just behind the grain header to the left in the pic and to give you a idea the size of the new shop that header is sitting long ways and the truck is sitting just to the end and both have plenty of room left on both ends, the new shop addition is about five years old now in the front of the building view the shop is the new building left of the old building. They had a few new pieces of equipment but that 370 is used and those two 7120s are used very little the one is back of the Steiger is used very little and I think theyre 2010 or 2011 models and the 370 is used also but ya cant tell it. That 440 quad in back of the shop is a customers and he is getting is tillage tool sharpened and in the picture you can see the grinder working on its own sharpin the blade and the gang rotates as it doing its job, pretty neat getup, the ole 440 looked to be run kinda hard but I guess theyre not bought to sit around and look pretty. Hope ya liked the pics and theyre website is Jacobi CaseIH if your interested in any of their stuff. See ya Hydro
  13. The 4366 and 4386 were good tractors in my opinion and if IH had went with a Cummins 855 in the 45 and 47 they probably would've sold twice as many as they did with that V8 550 which turned out to be total junk after a few thousand hours, but that's another IF and its just my opinion
  14. I like the looks of the old 915 combine and if anyone ever owned one or just run one and has some old pics Id like it if youd please post some pictures of this big machine and tell us your story of running one.
  15. Lincolns plan was to send all the former slaves to islands off the coast of Florida or down in the cuba area and those islands, they weren't to stay in the U.S. I have nothing against blacks but I vote white and I marry white an most my friends are white and if you have a problem with that then I can tell you where to stick it, Ive been in the south all my life Ive seen things most or you will never cause they just aint in the Midwest like here where I'm at. My childhood was ruined because of forced busing, bringing them out to our neighborhoods and we going to there neighborhoods and if ya didn't think blacks hate whites you should've been that 12 year old boy from the suburbs then that hot August day in 1975
