    That's a remnant patent decal. Whether it would have had a single number or have been more comprehensive, I'm not sure. Every once & a while, IH would list the decals in the kit. There might have been a bulletin from the Paint & Product committee, pertaining to the numbers listed on it. There were usually updates for the patent decals, so the ones listed may not be  the same throughout the production history of the planter or other machines.

    I’ll show it to Maple Hunter decal ,maybe she made them ! 
    This a good way to also to dig into the bulletins to find out what the C221 have for decals ,thanks 

  2. Got Champion 25 s in the Fordson F from advanced auto. Starts with hand crank 4 half turns with full choke. Just like my 89 year old mentor ( sharp,good mechanic  from butler,pa. )said it would. Running buzz coils ,flywheel wheel magnets 6volts ac on hand crank .

  3. That a humdinger of a bend . I would think it should have broke if cast iron.  I don’t think it will straighten with torch ,to much area . Even two torches 
    I’ve bought two forty pound bags of charcoal and burying part in in middle of pile .lite it and waited for red hot. Your going to need alot of help holding and bending it . Your need to make a gage to be sure it fits the track . Practice what your going to do ,when it’s red hot no time for ,let’s try this ,  won’t get a second chance ,have the rose bud torches to be sure in case the bending areas cool below red hot , got to keep it hot . Do not try to bend if it cools ,starts over heat it .

    as far as testing metal I use spark test to see if it’s cast ,or forged .

    good luck 

  4. Soaked the boot of the planter in the electrolysis barrel to lossen up rust and dirt that popped  the weld . Walking in uncharted territory with tools to get the rust and dirt out to the boot. Dirt left in there split the weld. I’m going to have to mill out pin to get it all out of there . Got to go easy cause I can’t crack that fertilizer tube, aren’t any of those anywhere.

  5. About three hours of electrolysis at 6  volts setting 5 amp on meter , I measured almost 4 volts on wires maybe 20 watts plus .

    you can compare the change from before and after .

    i did use wire brush by hand to clean off paint ,but when it did that exposed bare metal from 73 years after came out of tank.
    anyway I think while doing something else I can remove some rust with a lot of rust .

    there soft black corrosion residue that needs to scrub of ,power wash or wire brush or steel wool .

    i do it outside cause give off hydrogen, I don’t go anywhere unplug it . I don’t use 12 volt uses 13 to 15 amps wires get hot.

    They have grown grapes for the wineries up the mountain from my place since just after the Civil War. They use several methods but no sheep.

    The deer often eat the grapes. They can wipe out a 20 acre vineyard in days when they move in.

    Thx for posting.

    The research center has hig fences around it to keep deep out .

    But most of the all of the vineyards hear don’t have high fences , assume they do lose some

    Do they use the sheep for weedeating?

    Yep ! But pull them out just before the budding in spring . Return in fall after harvest 
    one fellow out of southern Ohio has a shorter breed that he uses . Then rotation in and out as he needs ,have to not allow them to blot on to much high energy , doesn’t allow it to be gazed to low  Said he winter seeds clover along his fence rows 

    can’t remember if they think they will eat thistle but not if it gets to high , dandelion, planteen

    My son works at AARC ,so I went to Field Day title Mulch and Mutton. 
    Morning was at Ferrante vineyard to see equipment used to hill cold weather protection .And test plots of mulch in cooperation with AARC. Got some photos of that for you t.o look at . 
    Then in the afternoon we went to research center for demonstration of the experiment equipment to deliver straw to row of grapes for winter .

    photos of that. 
    Also they were using sheep to graze the rows for maintenance and additional benefits .

    Wife and I enjoyed the day and the presentation , I learn a lot about vineyard care and cost .

    The three springs on this side are excellent , we’ll see when I take the other side apart .only doing one side at a time ,for reassembly reason s  . 
    psrings are sort of easy to get ,

    Already missing a part in photo. Found in the boiling pan ! Magnets search

    Those hopper bottoms look to be in good shape yet. Are the cutoff & knocker springs still decent? They don't look too crusty in your pics.

    Correction , I’m 220 so it’s 3990 actually, I’m trying 

    In addition to the weight , i was at the Lake Farm Parks show in Kirkland . They have a balence trailer , I drove the Farmall C with cultivators up on the trailer to see if I could balance it, ,I did it. Which I thought that was a pretty difficult feat. 
    But what was more important to me , I told the trailer operators to tell me where the trailer pivot was on the tractor . I told them it was important to me so now when I load it on my trailer I know where to balence the tractor on the trailer for the the best ride , I hate to have my ride off because the loader isn’t center . 
    so for your information it right in line vertical with rear tire.
