North Shore Tractor Club Raffle Tractor


Recommended Posts

Last year we restored a 1950 C demonstrator for scholarship funds for students wanting to go into some of the trades. We have three $ 1000 scholarships to hand out this Spring. 

So this year we are restoring a 1941 B,  here are some pics of our progress.

So far all has gone very good, the most difficult part was getting the pto seal out as you can see it is all in pieces.

On the steering post there a square box like with the starter switch mounted. It has a IHC logo cast in it. I have never seen this before, is it factory installed?

Every Tuesday a group of us work on this for a couple of hours in my shop, hope to have it done by the end of March for the St. Urho's Day parade in Finland Mn.

This is for scholarship funds for students that want to go into one of the trades. In the past two years we've given out nine $1000 scholarships. Some will be graduating this Spring. Today we start interviewing one of the students. He will be going to a heavy equipment operator school in Staples Mn. The end of the month some from our club will be going to Mecums action to see if we can get a tractor for next years raffle. Got to be a bit picky as parts can be soooo expensive which cuts down on scholarship funds. The last two tractors we've done were donated and even so we've put over $2000 in each. If any are interested in tickets mail me  geraldsundberg911@yahoo.com

We started her up yesterday and she sounds good even without the muffler ! Smoothed right out after adjusting the carb. abit and the distributor . We'll be taking her on a few rides and across the Mack this Summer. Maybe some of you will see her go!  If this weather ever warms a bit I'll get the tin sand blasted so's we can finish the painting.

Here she is out of the shop ready to go! Hauled her up to Finland Mn. for the St. Urhos' day parade yesterday. About a two hour long parade, many thought she looked real nice. Sold a few tickets too.
