    Lol that ain't no lie! Even when you pay for it they don't tell you everything. One of the reasons I got out of the "farmstock" game. If you are not one of them you will get no help. Now that will vary in your area or group I'm sure. I was in the wrong one. Pulloff will get you to people you need to talk to but you’re not going to get the little secrets in the farmstock on up. Antique guys are more willing to fill you in. 

    lol 

    I say to myself ,if I like the sport,   participation is where the fun is. I personally don’t emphasize winning ( getting beat is future victory’s,  just continuing the improvement , I focus mainly on Gription! There’s my tip to everyone. 
    oh and stone boat pulling is  the faster route to successful set up. 

    Have fun and pull with as many clubs as you can to improve. 
     

  2. Don’t pay much attention to them ! I think information is of very marginal value. I look over three of them in the past . 
    For example . 
    Tractor pullers won’t  share any facts on setup . In fact some deliberately mislead .

    When I was a kid a neighbor farmed with two H and two M farmalls. They never had a battery on them. 

    Crank started them every time.

    They were a family of real men though...

    I guess ! Best one is the family that boiled the water out of the radiator on their Fordson trying to start it .

  6. Farmall C  ,working on the Delco generator three brushes with the cut out. 
    Didn't charge. Don’t know how long it’s been that way .Put a new 4 position  switch in control box , rewired for lights ,lights work , still no charge. 
    I tried to motor test on  generator, nothing , maybe didn’t it grounded .

    Any way took it apart , did three test on the armature. All passed . 
    I bought a kit going to change bearings and brushes anyway , sand paper the commutator cleaner .

    Put back to gether  next week and try it again .I m restricting to 35 pounds for awhile .So no hurry we’ll get it. 
    Say if any one knows how to bench motor testing the 3 brush  generator, post me the steps  please. And and generators tips thank you 

  7. I bought a woods with the tractor . I like it ,used it with the tiller to make swales  at this house to get the water to drain away from the house. And swale  for backyard to drain it so it wasn’t a mud hole till July . 
    Highly recommend the ones with rippers . Also made a special longer  ripper to  lay invisible fence wires around the yard for dog coral .

    very valuable tool

  8. I haven’t work on this Farmall C  spark plugs  in many years. 
    I flooded it.after power washing it yesterday .  So wanted to take the plugs out to  whirl it to dry it out. And check for spark .i I got two out.  But the other two 2 and  4 are so tight . 2 I got out but thought I was going to strip it. 
    4 I left in there ,thought  it would bust.  There’s another day let’s me  think about this awhile rather rush to a bust. 
    I spayed brake clean in  and around the plug.  To clean it out of years of crude. 
    Any tips on how you might start to remove this last plug ?

    Feels like a welded  dissimilar metal spark plug in an Aluminum head but it’s not , Just surprised me , holding off collecting thoughts , yikes !

  9. Got it all back together . 
    Tried to start it. . Would not turn over , tu hen did but stopped smelled sulfur. 
    Went Farm Family and home ,and got a  6 volt deck a  put it in .

    Started it ,  no low charge ,no high charge , polerzied it . Still nothing 

    lights  worked 

    power washer it . 
     

    Going  test the generator  tomorrow maybe 

  10. Hers a suggestion ,make your wires longer so the Farmall C light switch Can be  wire outside the control box

     so you can wire it . If not be prepared to waste time and in my case my inability to locate dropped screws and lock washer as the screws gravity takes over the project .

    just saying it really helps
