    Building hay stacks with a Go Devil

    That looks very much like the Jayhawk stacker invented at Hoxie, Ks. The Kansas State Historical Museum has a model in their collection.

    IH Tractors on Montana Farm

    Both of the tractors pulling the binders (We called them headers) are CASE, an L and a 20-40.

    IH Tractors on Montana Farm

    Gary, the Case tractors in order: 9-18a, 12-20's on and being loaded on flatcar with 18-32's parked on the side, and in 3rd photo- 1936 RC with over-the-top steering like Farmalls and 3 CC models.

    Another "C" Case.

    Gary, the Case tractor is a CO, the orchard version of the model C. The stacker with the girl in the basket is a Jayhawk manufactured at Salina, Kansas. It was invented by a farmer near Hoxie, Kansas, 35 miles from my hometown of Oberlin. The Kansas State Historical Society has a patent model in their museum collection.

    .What do you mean, skipping church? I did too, but at least I had a good excuse--dialysis so everyone could have tomorrow off

    IH Tractors on Montana Farm

    Looking at the picture from Carl's plow day, I see Austin Monk on the Case 32 and Dave Vanek and possibly Budd Witte on the Nichols and Shepherd. If I remember correctly, I had my family's C Case that day.

    Where to get points for Case DI with 4-JMA mag

    Contact Richard Kibble in Fort Shaw, MT. He rebuilds mags and is very reasonable on price. He can fix your mag in less than a week.

    For the case guys

    If it's a 1932 grader, it's an L not an LA; they didn't build la tractors before 1940. There were quite a few of those conversions in Montana; I know of at least 6 others.

    No, it was not me who got married; there is no danger of that happening to someone who will celebrate his 70th birthday (and Jesse James' 170th) next Tuesday. The Choteau show will be September 16 and 17..
