IH Tractors on Montana Farm

Politically correct version.  

“Santa makes a quick stop at someone’s house who was on the really naughty list this year”

We can only hope that person turns things around and gets put on the nice list this year but that may indeed take a Christmas miracle. Ok, I may be getting a little close to some of Anson’s Blue Smoke so I’m going to stop 😉

Just caught up with this thread, hadnt kept up with it lately for some reason. Glad to see everyone is still motorvating along! 

Loadstar's Uncle Roy was sure a lot more musically talented than i am (i have none). I enjoyed that. 

Sorry to hear about the passing of your friends Gary. Just got off the phone with my mother and she had been to another distant cousins funeral. I didnt know him but had heard her tell of him. Sadens me to to hear of the older generations passing. Sitting here thinking of the stories and experiances/knowledge we lose as theses folks go. I think of all the stories i wont ever hear again and that my children will never hear. 

Im a little late but Happy New Year everyone.

I just posted a reply under the hot thread "Dont be like this guy------downfall of our hobby" by old F-14.

It may not be recieved well by the younger group on this forum.  Hope I didn't embarrass too many of you with my somewhat blunt statement to thd "young pricks" on that thread.  But------they just rubbed this old codger the wrong way tonight.  I  have found this forum (not this thread) to be leaning more and more toward what I think of as a woman's beauty shop gossip style forum.

I sincerely enjoy this thread and consider all of you that frequent Gary's thread friends.

Being old, grouchy, and dragging a basket full of health issues along with me--------I will most likely not be participating here in the Professor's classroom that often in the future.  I can always be contacted at:

Leave a message if I don't answer. 

Keep the ball rolling here---------and I trust that someone will keep the Professor in line!!!

You will be sorely missed, Uncle Anson. I have much enjoyed your stories from the Delta. If my travels should ever take me there I will try to look you up. Maybe I can get a backhaul of watermelons from you.

I'm a couple years younger than both of you but I really enjoy the wealth of info that comes from both of you fine gentlemen.  I do hope you are able to enlighten all of us from time to time as we desperately need that Light once in a while.

DD,

     Please consider the source before making any final decisions. I went looking at that thread after reading your post above because I had not paid attention to it. The poster there gives younger people a bad name due to an obvious lack of respect and a lust for discontent. People in some circles even consider him to be a thief which is a story best left off this thread.  I appreciate your input and friendship that started here in this thread. You can obviously make your own decisions but as you can already see above, you will be sorely missed which is more than can be said for our entitled friend from the other thread. Please don’t let one bad watermelon spoil the whole truckload.

Todd

Anson l didn't see anything wrong with what you said other than it being true. Us "old codgers" have many reasons for hanging on to some of the things we have. To some it's just a rusty old whatever.(tractor, car, motorcycle, saw) But instead of just a pile of rust to the one who owns it is a pile of memories of Dad, Grandpa or maybe brother. lnstead of seeing a worthless pile of iron, they see what it was way  back then.

     l just hate to see you leave because of some "young pricks". And if you leave, who else besides Tony R. is going to talk cotton stuff with me???   Please reconsider.  ☹️

Anson, I was going to be going to page 5 to see if I could retrieve this old thread. I've been laxed lately and can blame it onto nothing but old age. However, I don't control the temperature outside. Our God does. When I got up, I looked at my indoor/outdoor thermometer and the Holy Spirit nudged me! I grabbed my phone and took a picture of it.

1821801738_Outdoorthermometertemperature-2asElvisPresleyTwoBelowinTupelo.thumb.jpg.ac9393054abae683d99e46bd3d3eb5a5.jpg

Naturally, it cropped up in my head, Anson and Elvis! Elvis is trying to pick out Two Below in Tupelo on this borrowed accordion.

407576137_Elvisontheaccordion1.jpg.5fbd0327a743fa9cccfa3174d4436955.jpg

That prodded me to think of MISSISSIPPI and Delta Dirt. Naturally, Anson is dozing it around (Delta Dirt) with his TD-14 and Bucyrus Erie dozer.

491530320_AnsonSheldonon1943TD-14IHcrawleranddozerinMississippi.jpg.60b307f4136f8f3fd220aa6fa79f4783.jpg

That was reminiscent for this old head, doing that with rocky Montana dirt with NO GOLD coins dripping out.

Of course Elvis was no stranger to IH Tractors either.

Then the image of a grouchy Gunny popped into my mind and I thought, what would this thread be without that ex marine.... er..... Former Marine?

Then I remembered the Melons you were bringing up the Mississippi and Missouri River valleys to Helena in Roger's AutoWagon. After you got through Lewis and Clark's Gates of the Mountains, my mouth would be watering.

So... Anson. What the heck am I supposed to do on Red Power Coffee Shop without you to give a bad time to? Eh? Suck it up, old timer. As long as you and I have a pulse, we can't let these young whippersnappers down. Even if I wore a stove pipe cap and you wore one of those floppy things, we were both serving the same country and upholding the same constitution. That's why we need you here, my friend! SP4 Yaeger, G. (not retired), just let go. Gary😀 

PS: If you keep your computer out of porn sites and the whippersnapper Red Power sites, You'll be just fine!

PPS: that TD-18A was an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm too!

Anson, PLEASE don't desert this thread/blog of Gary's!!   I need to see your postings and comments, they are often the best part of my day.  It can be your humorous anecdotes, knowledge of the things you've experienced . . . and even some of that Blue Smoke you send my way.  As far as the comments you made back on that other post, I see nothing wrong with your very appropriate comments on that thread.   I'm personally a little surprised you managed to stay so politically correct with your comments . . . I don't know if I would have.   Besides Anson, how in heII am I going to keep Gary in line without your help!?!?

I had to go over to that thread and read what it was all about Anson and I'd say you were right on in your comments.  I've got a fair bit of old iron around here and rarely sell anything. Although I"ve been known to give a few breaks to someone that has a good attitude and a little respect. Otherwise, high pressure salesmen just turn me more against the idea of ever selling. I'll enjoy watching it sit and rust until I'm not around any more. The day I get tired of that, then its for sale.

Don't leave the forum because of some ignorant replies that somebody didn't give much thought to before typing. You are a good influence here.

I even sent Anson an email, but haven't heard anything back. I sure hope he reconsiders his former decision. I've never seen him or shaken his hand, but I sure consider him a friend. "...... Shane....... Come Back!!!" (You have to be a little older to recognize that line.)

A few things I found on Facebook. What is this IH Truck? I was thinking it has to be a KB-10 single axle? I sure don't know. Somebody will know!!

1266861444_AKB-8IHtruckandtrailerhaulinghugetube.jpg.84e94122eefae2810c0e593298bac0b3.jpg

This is how I remember truckers as a kid. I remember going to Eddies Corner (near Moore, Montana!) and watching the Freightways drivers and their Freightliners, and other brands I can't remember. The guys wore these caps, some wore uniforms, and drank coffee there before heading on down the road. I had a good friend who worked in the EC service station. And my (now) wife worked in the restaurant as a waitress (for .50 cents an hour!). These guys are driving IH Trucks.

I think this is a Farmall M? It's in belgium and I forget what they said it was hauling. It has fenders, belt pulley and wide front axle. I can usually tell an M from an H, but this one is puzzling to my old mind.

This is a Farmall M that somebody here in Montana restored and is using it as their site photo. It looks better and cleaner than the Farmall's I'm used to! Gary😉

PS: It could even live on a farm? That would make it an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm.

As far as I know, the only external differences in a K/KB-6 thru 12 are the model designations that are sometimes on the hood, but not evident here.  The bigger tires here do suggest one of the larger models.  There is a difference between the K and KB models.  The KB has chrome trim that wraps around the front of the hood around the triple diamond and that is about the only difference.  Lack of that indicates this is the earlier K-10. 

The coffee drinkers are driving L-line models, L-190 thru 220 ca 1950.

The old Farmall in Belgium appears to a “BM” or possibly “EM” 

British built version of the American M .....definitely British wide front end and air cleaner cap.

”B” for British 

“E” for European...

Although I believe both were built at the IH Doncaster plant in England.

a farmall M, is different from a H in front. the M  has a dip in the bottom center opening of the grill, it also has a eyebrow just below the center grease fitting, except for the earliest year, or two?    how about that headache rack on that arrow truck. it looks like i'ts held on with U bolts.   Fred.

  Here's a whole fleet of IH trucks with some light loads. Don't know the date but l think it's a pretty interesting pic. Besides looking at the main subject of this type of pic l enjoy looking at the background and seeing different things. Like a 50 cent wash or grease job. And the Cosden gasoline sign.

My big grey IH Truck book makes me think that is a 1946 or maybe earlier K 7-10 truck due to the lack of a chrome crown around the center Triple Diamond. But that's as close as I can come to the model.

None of this stuff is from Facebook! An 83 year old coffee buddy of mine and I drove to Great Falls to the annual Toy Show at the fairgrounds. I bought a few miniscule things in the tool line, but I did get some neat photos, even if I do say so myself. I was really taken by this 1927 IHC S-Model truck. The wood was well rotted in the cab and the box, but the young man who bought it did about what I did when I bought our 1925 Model TT Truck back in 1954. He put in water, gas, changed the oil, aired up the tires, put a battery in it, started it and drove it away! A front view.

Now this is a John Deere Tractor on a Pennsylvania Farm. The man who owns it moved to Montana and brought this tractor from his father's collection. A JD 60 Orchard!

Toy Show organizer, Gary Larson always brings several tractors. This one is a Farmall H Demonstrator.

This is Gary's standard IH Farmall H. Just another IH Tractor on a Montana Farm, I guess?

I think Gary Larson owns something like 30+ IH tractors and crawlers. I'm pretty sure this is also his IH Farmall 200.

Someone in a facebook group posted these pics of a thresher and wondering what kind it is. Besides brand name, some say it's a peanut thresher. Just wondering if Gary or Roger could shed some light on this. Who built it and is it a peanut thresher?

Roger, this one is all yours.  It is different than a normal grain threshing machine, with those long tubes on each side. I have no idea who built it and I live a long ways away from peanut country. I don't have Jimmy Carter's phone number so I'll just have to go along with Twostepn2001, wondering too. Gary
