    What you bid for the H and M ❓

    Well depends on why the m doesnt run but if its not broken in some way it might not be too bad to get running. The stuck h who knows. Might get it loose witout much fuss, might not. If you enjoy a challenge and have the space and time for whatever it takes, go for it. I would try to bid just enough that you beat out the scrappers and not much more...that way if it doesnt work out to get em running you will still be able to come out some how...

    Daughter getting bullied in school.

    Sounds to me like she has been tying the ignore it thing since kindergarten. Think they are way beyond that now.....Some times enough is enough. It is a slippery slope, as some have said kids can be sneaky.

    Daughter getting bullied in school.

    Sorry to hear your family is going thru this πŸ˜• no excuse for it whatsoever. I know what i would have done had i been standing where your wife was .......none of the options im thinking probably would have ended well but that girl would have had a mad parent to deal with.........hope you can get it taken care of satisfactorily for all involved.

    Are these IH power Units?

    Im wondering if the fe you rebuilt wasnt a transplant. Fe's were a front distributor engine and a diff series of engine than the old rear distibutor y block just ahead if that. Fe's didnt get put in cars until 58 or maybe 57 iirc. Not sure when they came out in heavy trucks....or the engine sizes for heavy trucks...gonna have to google it now....

    IH 856 TERP

    You cant possibly know that every tractor is owned by a bto or that they are going to rot in the weeds till there is nothing left. Yes im sure some will and some would still find their way to salvage yards. But some would eventualy find their way to other owners. Your assuming bto has owned all these tractors for years which also might not be the case. Might have been bought up for express purpose taking advatage of these types of programs. I understand its a lenghty process or sounds to be but some may be willing to go that route. Some of theses are roached out tractors to be sure but ones like at start of this thread....nope sorry makes me sick to see the waste of it. And even some of the roachy ones are probably worth saving.

    Thanks Mark. 1 of my uncles bought a massey to brush mow with and was thinking it had something. Couldnt recall their name for it. He has since sold the buildings and sadly had a stroke. Not sure if he still has tractor or not. Not sure the number tractor but was smaller than this one i think.

    424 with 2000 loader leaking hydraulic oil on clutch

    I wonder what will happen if it happens!

    Yes acreages were always larger in other parts of the country but what are the acreages now compared to the 70s in those parts of the country. Dont think i saw a goverment conspiracy named .....not sure who the they is that gleaner is refering to but didnt see the goverment blamed..... And you said exactly what my point is or part of it. As numbers of farmers shrink jobs to support them go away too. Also fewer folks on the land to raise their kids in the rural life. Factory farms that reduce our control and knowledge of where our foods come from and our control over it as opposed to what corporations and misguided gov programs try to make us believe...
