  1. Saturday was a fun day. Went on the local tractor ride. NEPOWESHEICKCOFARMALLS came up and joined the party. We decided to ride 756's. His looks pretty good considering last winter he laid it on its side. I drove the one that's considered the wife's, her dad bought it new. That ones pretty special at our house. 37 tractors total, including my relatives we had 6 tractors there, 5 red ones and one 8N Ford. Wife's grandpa bought it new. It's got the underdrive, direct, and overdrive transmission. Kinda fun to drive. Here's some pictures of our tour of northeast Marshall county Iowa. Sprinkles were on the horizon and when we got close to my house we turned towards home. And the last half dozen miles or so, we turned the horses loose 👍. Hopefully SHEICK will add some pictures to. We looked at his best (back)🙊 side most of the day. His camera was getting plenty of use as well. Enjoy the pictures, hopefully they tell a little about what we got to see.
  2. Getting ready for silage time. We have the wagons ready, but our tractors all need a bath yet. Thought some pictures would be fun, so here you are. Three series of 14's.
  3. I started my day by opening a can of whoop a$$ on some out of control horse weeds. They had engulfed the rear axles of a old IH truck I have and a small tractor was disappearing as well. So the war was on. By noon I had accomplished what I wanted. During my morning workout I found something I'd never seen before. Some kind of moth. It evidently was stuck in the weeds cause when we freed it, it flew away. I'm including a picture in case anyone knows. After my lunch break I cranked up my skidloader and hauled my trimmings away. Next project was weed eater but that got sidelined, no gas. That was my own mistake by not having enough on hand. No biggie as I was gonna call it a day before much longer anyway. So I looked around to see what else I could accomplish before calling it a day. And then I spotted the little H I got at the antique tractor auction this summer. And if you remember it will only run a short time before it dies and won't start again. So I decided to try and diagnose the problem. Hit the starter and as usual it lit right up. After probably 30 seconds it died. My initial thought was it was suffocating. The glass jar is missing from the air cleaner. Didn't take the tube off the carb but looked unobstructed. Looked at the sediment bowl, looked cloudy but ok. Next place to look, in the gas tank. And I have my answer. Theirs a lot of sediment over the top of the sediment bowl. Over time gas seeps down through just not fast enough to keep it running. So I at least know what's wrong. I'll order a screen to put in the sediment bowl that sticks up in the tank, rinse the tank, and be good. I also got word from a friend that a project that was supposed to be done before the power show is on the docket for sooner rather than later. I'm definitely not complaining, he was busy, I was busy, and it wasn't important enough to work on it when it was 118 heat index.
  4. Here's our line up for Saturday's show in Garwin, Iowa. From left to right. #1.1971-826 serial number 16846 pulling I'm assuming a 70's era Big Butch wagon. A complete Big Butch setup. Box, hoist, and gear all Big Butch brand. Low use wagon still wearing it's original tires and rims. Wagon #2, Calhoun barge box UNFORTUNATELY still on the Bradford gear. My intention was to have it switched for show day but it just didn't happen. I'm glad I took it tho. Talked with a couple from Eldora, Iowa. They remember where it was sold new and the building is still standing. How cool is that? He loved the original stencil and hoped we kept it inside which we do. #2. My SMTA. It got to go simply cause it was handy when I was loading early in the morning. #3. 1970-826 serial number 13344. It to was handy and I simply wanted it there with the 71. #4. Dad in laws SMTA serial number 63135. He started farming with it. Notice the every other one going on? It was a happy accident. Not pictured. The Navy tractor took up sick after we got there. Starts and runs but something kinda grinds. So it never got unloaded. And I'm not tearing into it till after August. IH is the feature in Marshalltown so it'll be there regardless. Gonna unload it in the morning. Unless something really goes haywire, it'll be in Marshalltown. And my nephew drove his great grandfather 826 but parked elsewhere. I'm adding a couple extra pictures so the wagons show up better.
  5. It started off great. Our hounds let us sleep in this morning. They must've known it was a holiday to cause that never happens. Next up, feed the critters, indoors and outdoors. Grab a light breakfast. Then it's picture time. And I mean looking through old film photos. So that dates them back. Found what I wanted in probably 10 minutes. Take a quick peak at radar to see if I can mow. It's way out of hand. But it's nice when I'm trucking during the week and wet on the weekends. Clear as can be. So outside I go to get it ready. A pop up shower delayed things but not long. Got it going only to realize not much gas around. So I mowed what I could. Let's just say the front yard looks good. It's only 1:30 so what now? Jasmine our 13.5 year old yellow lab wants to go for a ride. We load her up, grab a few empty gas cans, and head to town. Get gas and tour the big cemetery on the north end of Marshalltown. Very few flags out which was kinda disappointing. Head back towards home. Green Mountain cemetery is full of flying flags. That was awesome. We then take the scenic route to Union Grove Lake. Not much wildlife out but the dog is happy. We then visit Chapel Church cemetery. Wife has a few relatives buried there. We realized her grandparents have been gone 20 years. We're just about to leave when we realize our good friend and neighbor had a sign by his dad's grave. Pretty neat. Snapped a picture so I could share it with all of you. He's the Orange collector in the neighborhood. And this afternoon after all this I opened my email. My buddy in Tennessee bought a 5088 in Texas, brought it home, worked on it a bit, and sold it to a guy in Atlanta, Georgia. The Georgia guy sent him the second picture. I had a similar idea with my navy tractor. But mother nature didn't cooperate very well, again. Anyway, had to share the pictures. Hope everyone had a great memorial day.
  6. So the boys added a 1466 to the collection. A couple pictures of the ole heifer. They first installed the chrome pipe (no tractors here without a chrome pipe) set it for 30 in. rows and then of course had to put on the ice and snow insurance. She runs out nearly perfect, has almost 11,000 hrs.
  7. Tuck in the back ready for winter wrench time. Not much snow here so far to run them or push any out of the way.
  8. I am often accused of always being willing to help my friends and neighbors. We had all our harvest equipment put away for the year when a friend called and asked what I was doing. I said well...... what do you need? Needless to say 9 degrees does not make for thick enough ice to hold up the 1680. Had to leave a three acre spot, but the rest of his bean crop is now in the bin. My boys say, Dad you are way too nice, and I said if I hadn't gone you two would have. Stuck it on the first round, but the rest went just fine. Happy to have good people to work with, as he would have done the same for me.
  9. So, I have been keeping an eye out for a good looking, original, low hour tractor for some time (isn't everyone?). I didn't want anything too large and wanted an IH diesel. This will do some pasture mowing, moving round bales and road maintenance as I have 1/2 mile of lane to maintain. I spotted this 686 on a sale bill and was lucky enough to get it bought today. It is a 1977 with the IH 312 and 3200hrs. Hoods are original paint. The fenders and back half have had some touch up but the entire machine is clean. T/A works, 6 x 75lb weights on front and one set of splits on the rear. No fluid in the tires. Firestones on the rear. Had large goofy steps bolted on from previous owner but I found the original step and purchased it also.
  10. Finally dry enough and warm enough to get into the field. We had an excavator take the trees out of the western fenceline this winter. Dad made a few passes with the plow and I hit it with the disc. Gonna be some big bonfires, that one pile makes the 1486 seem insignificant!
  11. First sun dogs I have seen this winter. It was about 6 degrees and wind at around 30 mph. Not nice for man or beast. Yesterday it was 45 degrees. Wish it would just stay cold in January and not get above freezing. Much better for the cattle.
  12. So my Dad has hand made and customized toys since before I was born. Now Dad is building toys for his grandkids. Each of the grandkids is getting a custom puller, some have two. Here are a few that were given this year. A 5488, 5288, 1466, 1206 and a stock class 1486 as he already has a superstock and requested the 1486. Thought y'all would enjoy the pictures.
  13. Thought you guys would like to see a few ol girls having some fun. I think we drivers had fun too.
