  1. I’m going to put it ( 50:1 into the  Husqvarna snow throw cat end of season and run itit. , I had the cleaner the carb out to get it to run. Only had 10 hours on it . 
    going  do it to the  Farmall C 

  2. Not sure of the magnitude of the stubble burns .
    The Canadian Fires this summer makes me concerned that it would force me to say inside ,could not breathe , no outside activities . May and June wasn't good here. 

  3. We went Firestone on the 560 . 
    Because in the long run I felt that the wheels slipping of inferior tires would be a cost avoidance in the long run I wasted fuel. 
    I also have witnessed the rapid dry rotting at the cheaper off shore mfr. increased fuel cost also .

    So what’s the time difference three years to make up the difference in cost . After that cheaper  tires will  6 years the will double the cost difference loss from the price 


  4. Proud of the fleet photo  taken at 201 Geauga county fair  September 2023 , 1924  model F  and 1948 Farmall C. 
    73 years of memories that go with these babies.

    My late friend told and I quote “ you’ll forget the money , but never forget the memories “ ! 

    Fordson F for forever! 
    Farmall C forever !

    I can't say for sure but the 5.3 GM engines are being rebuilt in mass every day.

    I would assume if they went to a fracture rod, there would be screaming from the mountain tops.

    The boys at Hot Rod took a 5.3 and easily got it to 1,000 HP.

    It took many pulls on the dyno before it blew up.

    Afterwards, they got to looking and it was really a 4.8 instead of the 5.3.

    Those engines are have a very tough bottom end.



    Thanks good to know , thank you

    Think they make 750cfm in a 4500 dominator series but still that’s a metric F-ton of carb. It’s probably not actually “409” cube either, if I remember right the bore spacing is the same as BBC, possibly even bearing diameters. I’ve heard of guys putting big stroke to the W engines. Then old wedge chambers liked to rev too...

    One carb is for starting
