  1. When working on a 70 year old machine ,you find issues that you know are going to a acid reflex. The frog which attachment is for fertilizer unit. Was filled with dirt and rust which was expand sheet metal side wings. I’m going use it . So I wanted to clean it paint it and seal it cause it will just happen all over again. Well they broke. Thunder what am I going to do. There aren’t any of these anywhere,anymore , viz. So I asked . We felt braze was the best repair for this cast . Why they welded these at factory was a wonder to me . Just aided in the cracks in my opinion.

    show what we did to fix ours .

    request ! If you have these frogs please don’t through them away,someone like me can use them .

  2. Took the C and the painted up C221 corn planter over to the 200 Geauga County Fair Yesterday . Parked it next my Fordson F. 
    The 1948 Farmall C replaced the Fordson as farms tractor when the Fordson through a connecting rod . Never heard the Fordson run until January last year about seventy three years dormant. 
    My son Matt helped mount the C221 planter on the C . I asked for help , I could not lift the front cultivators off the C .Then the C221 is a extremely hazardous with all the pinch points that go with the lift levers. I had to say this is to much ,I need help .

    I don’t know how Dad did it by himself, but he did it .

    Didn't know what you were talking about, so looked it up.  Cool old rig.

    I'd have been a few months old when those came out.

    We had a 56 Pardard Clipper , Fast Car , first street race I was ever in in Kent Ohio , going to grandmas ,Dad blew off a 59 Chevy with 348 between the lights . They didn’t try us again at the next light . To bad I loved it . 







  4. Serrated sections are  top or bottom ? 
    Serrated Ledgers? 

    This what I did with my Foot New Idea 
    Interesting , my new idea sayes to have knives parallel to ledger . Which I did do a lot of work to achieve that , I didn’t bend ledger up ,we machine the guard so they clamped perfect ( close as .02 with feeler gage ) . Pitched the rock guards down one notch from level . ( I thought that moving forward the stock would pull the sections down on ledgers). Can mow anything except vetch in second gear on the Farmall c . 


    This is what  through me off ,I don’t know what I’m doing .When I talked to Webb ,he told me to pitch the cutter bar , section up . To me I thought that would lift the sections off the ledgers . For New Idea , I need to call them back cause that still baffles me may be the under serrated section .


    i know you get them right and you can mow way later at night with heavy dew which never happens. 

    Tried not to deviate

    In my mom’s family stuff that was stored in boxes in dads garage for years i found the corner of a piece of note paper that instructed in hand written cursive to “spray raid down the vacuum hose for 10-15 seconds with it running to make sure you got them” with very little context otherwise. I will presume since they had dogs, cats and wall to wall that it was fleas. 

    Don’t need that fancy store bought fiddle faddle  ,old fashioned shop floor dust , with grease , brake fluid . You spray that in there might get a bomb if it get into that arc of the brushes. 💣 

  6. I suggest a inexpensive shop vacuum. Postion hose over the hole and suck them up. Just have to listen to the vacuum a few hours . Take the wife out on a day date ,if it’s annoying.

    Lazy man’s idea 

  7. I’m a rookie corn planter guy , just know one side of this planter was crushing seed. What I remember. These samples only thing I have to go on. 3324A was the plate in the planter at the time 60 years ago when this would happen .
    (lastest issue I see is left side chain from wheel is binding ,why don’t know but that may be the cause .

    Is this 3324A the best option for new hybrid corn today ?

    3324A was in the hoppers ,dark in one and lighter in the other. This seed is 60 years old . Is new seed changed ? Assume it has .

    Hope Absent Farmer doesn’t mind but a lot of information in yours that I can look thru I haven’t seen before 





  8. Been preparing to paint the planter . Every time I think it ready for top coat I find some more clay and grease compounded so tightly bonded to the surface , got to wire brush out once I discover that miss,  as I prime ,I leave that area . Come back an cleaned it out and prime the area . Thunder !

    pressure washer will not remove it, got to dig and scrape it off some how . Collected in places the nozzle can’t reach it. Ugh !

    Completely wore out the small wire brush I did the  majority removal with. 

    Sherman Williams sayes 90 percent of the paint job is in the preparation! Boy they got that right!
