  5. I need to try to stop more often, remember about that 2+2 plowing video.
  6. Yesterday I stoped to see the world famous 2+2 guy and realized I hadn't posted this here so enjoy. Around The Corner To begin, I must say that I work for the greatest men in the world! As a part of my job, I often do demolition. Recently I did a demo job in Michigan and there were several buildings on this project, including a collapsing boat house. As usual, I always search for good things left behind. And as fate would have it, around the corner under the steps in this boat house sat a 1926 McCormick Deering engine. My boss, being generous and knowing my affinity for International Harvester, gave it to me. This will be my barn find story of the year. Amazingly, it looked complete and in fairly good condition. I assumed after setting so long it would be stuck, but it wasn’t. What a plus! That evening I knocked down a wall, hooked a chain on, and pulled the engine out into the sunlight after a long nap. Also among the rubble of the dilapidated building was the original muffler, crank handle, and two belt pulleys. The next step was to take the pressure washer to it, then I oiled it down. And WOW what a transformation! After looking the 6 HP over, the decision was made to leave it in its original condition. For good measure I decided to go through the engine so it would run well. Here’s a list of repairs made: hone cylinder, lap valves, replaced fuel tank, rebuilt mixer, rebuilt magneto, cleaned and lubed governor and valve linkage. Two things we found in the refreshing process was the cylinder had very little ridge and minimal wear. Secondly, the shims on the crankshaft still have paint on them, which leads me to conclude that none have been removed. After careful assessment, the only logical conclusion is that this McCormick has seen very little use. The McCormick Deering type M engine was prolific and the one I found is by no means rare, but you will be hard pressed to find one in this nice of condition with such little use. At this point, I must give special thanks for my friend Jerry LeCount for all his knowledge and help. I can’t imagine my life without him in it. Thanks Jerry! If you're interested, there's a video of the first time we started the engine on Youtube at the Plowed Under Productions channel. In conclusion, what’s to be learned from this story is that when you peak around the corner you never know what you’ll find.
  7. You gotta be at the right place at the right time found this on craigslist. I just happened to be the first to respond to the add for this two way two disc small point plow. I had it shipped from Oregon to Indiana. Bottom line is they don't come to you you gotta always be looking.
  8. I must apologize for not giving BJ credit for his help. He did the driving so I could focus on camera work. Thanks BJ!
  9. John Thats is a 560 gas with a turbo makes 115 HP. So it’s got the power but pulling that much in your neck of the woods would be hard on the trans and rear. It belongs to the guy who owns the field he bought it new and now it’s a play toy. The van wert stuff is on the way I got to get caught up I’ll have time off over Christmas break. Have a merry Christmas. Rob
  10. Al Most of the footage is from my drone so the buzz from that is all you here.
