    I messed up and forgot to tell ya that Phil Aylward is on a sharp 1456 and I posted and picture of this very pic not long ago and I thought the man and tractor was Rob Russell in his younger years but it wasnt and I started getting into pulling in 1973 when my cousin started pulling his MF 1130 and also received The Puller mag every month and I dont ever recall reading about or seeing him or this tractor so was he a one year wonder?
  2. Its saids that IH came to Steiger to build them a 4x4 and IH wanted only for them to use the DTI466 IH engine and the axles or rear and frontend and the transmission was Steiger so Steiger locked there best top 3 engineers in a building in Fargo, ND and this is what they came up with. Ive always said the 4366/4386 was by far the best 4x4 IH ever made and if they had went with a Cummins 855 in the two other bigger tractors they wouldve made them a whole lotta money instead of using that worthless V800. It saids in this picture that it is January 15, 1973 and this is the tractor the three guys designed from scratch
  3. Wow came across these and this is like going back in time over 41 years ago and I cant believe it where did all the time go, seems like yesterday to me. These pullers were the main ones of this time era and the biggest majority of them have done passed away like Marshall Myre on the 966 and the young kid on that blackstripe 1066 is dead also and the only tractor still intact and pulling today is Joe Telaks 1066 from New York, he is the fifth picture and Andy Walters the young guy is right beside his picture. Hope you like this bunch of pictures as much as I did
  4. As everybody knows I love tractor pulling and have since I was a little boy and got my first subscription to The Puller for the year 1977 for Christmas and here are a bunch of good never before seen pictures from the pits at pulls in the 80s and 90s and this new century. If you know your tractors youll probably see you favorite and some are named or Ive typed some to but here they are:
  5. The Doc at the VA said it looks like a Brown Seclouse bite and gave me some strong anti-biotic ointment to apply to it twice a day for a week and she said that would make it heal up but this thing is ugly and started about a week ago with some intense scratching. I cant remember getting bite or nothing so it mustve happen when I was a sleep
  6. I always liked to hear or read this about a nice clean tractor for sale the salesman would say " O Boy that tractor is so sharp and clean that it can read and write" Lets hear yalls phrases

    Nice pair of 1456s

    Eye Candy I say
  8. There should be a law passed that you cant let a very very rare tractor like this to rot away outside in the elements, apparently this idiot aint got a clue what this is worth or he doesnt give a crap
  9. These pictures are from BG in 1993 and a few from Midsouthpullers in 2002 and the very last picture is Jay Fuqua in 1978 or 40 years ago and I remember him in the Puller Magazine with that twin turboed 1066 with the tricycle frontend
  10. Some good people have sure dropped some bucks into bringing these two back to like new condition and they did a good job on both
  11. First thing this morning and our first of three trucks get hung up so we called Mr Grider and he came over with his nice 7240 and the truck was fully loaded and the Magnum just spun those duals and got to hoppin so bad it broke three front weights off, they went back on but the back piece broke so those three kinda hang down and this dude farms about 3,000 acres of grain and his farm was just right up the road and I went by after we finished and he has a new Magnum 290 with duals all around and a 1466 with red cab and a John Deere 4440 on a Kinze 16 row planter and a John Deere 4620. He use to do business with us years ago and him and his brother and son farm the farm, we finally had to unload some of the concrete and with another mixer truck hooked up along with the 7240 it finally got loose but it had sat there for close to 2 hours so the load was getting hot and when it hit the pour it practically took off.
  12. Me and my smartphone have a relationship that we hardly much find time to get on the ole puter anymore and Ive been lackin on some good pics but this will pick it up a little. hat first pic is what all of us in the U.S. face during the spring and summer..........tornados.........and what there outcome could be to one of us and thought I had more pics but the puter mustve not worked right
  13. I just love the good old pullings days of the 70s and 80s. Some of these tractor owners have since passed away or the tractor has been sold and the driver is retired or else he is pulling another tractor. The big I don't know is where and what ever happened to Dickie Sullivans IH puller, he passed away years ago but whatever happened to the tractor I have not got a clue
  14. Ole deer ran smack into that pretty Stang but at least he got some free meat outta the situation and look at that updated good looking 1586
