IH Tractors on Montana Farm

Just to let my friends here know, I'm so glad this is back, and not for just me. I'm glad YOU'RE all back. Like a herd of Jersey milk cows gathered here, We all get a "Kick out of each other." (They were the worst kickers on our farm decades ago.)

And I did get this computer to conquer the problems I was having here. I spent some money for "protection" from Avast. (Anson and the house for his shovels and hoes, is different from my old antique cotton hoe. So is his protection.)

Apparently a hacker got my IP address and screwed up my connection to Red Power Forum? Because I kept adding protection $ome more, and when I added the protection for the IP address, my woes here all went away. I click on "R" on my upper margin, click on Red Power... etc. and this all comes up faster than a baby throws up after a "burp."

It is sure a good feeling being back on Red Power. I've really missed this nonsense! Gary OBG Old Binder Guy😁

Glad you and your extensive thread is back, hopefully no posting problems 

Thanks, Hardtail! I $pent $ome money on protection from Avast and it cleared up all of my computer problems. This computer got a new lease on life, and I'm not trying to plug Avast. It's just the one I chose.

Since YOU, my friend, are the actual guy who got me posting here on Red Power Forum, and it was due to IH Tractors with tracks, on our Montana Farm. OR TracTracTors. So for you, buddy, here is an amount to founder on. However there was an RD4 Caterpillar on the farm first. It got traded off after it got stuck in Beaver Creek and was left overnight, to get the steam engine filled with water to pull it out the next day. The sand in the rollers kept chewing the rollers up, so they got rid of it. This is a picture of Uncle Audie using it to pull a cable scraper with manure out of the barn, ca 1942. He's holding his son Alvin and my brother Bill is at right, riding.

This is that photo that has been all over the internet, that I took with my brother's Brownie camera in 1951, when Dad (R) got his TD-40 McCormick-Deering TracTracTor with a Holt dozer stuck, straightening up some potholes after straightening some of Beaver Creek out. Brother Bill is on the stuck one. Then Cousin Bob Yaeger on the middle one and Uncle Bill on the far one.

The middle TD-40 is moving a house for Uncle Frank Yaeger. Uncle Bill is on this wide gauge International TD-40 TracTracTor. My dad is at the right side of the hitch.

1303833936_TD-40olsidmovingFrankyaegershouse.jpg.24fd1f97fb15746a87f556dd493dfd50.jpg

Nephew Randy, now age 65, is sitting on Granddad Joe's TD-40 that was stuck. Our old "ice house" that kept ice blocks sawn from Beaver Creek in winter, is at right.

This is cutting the pie pretty slim, but at the very right in the shed is the front end of Dad's TD-9. It also had a dozer. The three Yaeger boys I took this photo of in 1951 with brother Bill's Brownie camera are Alvin, Charles "Chuck" (no That's NOT Beaver Cleaver) and my brother Bill. Dad is behind the IH Farmall tractors on this Montana Farm, going to ride through the cows with his horse Yank. That upper tiny black blotch above our McCormick-Deering threshing machine up the lane was the 32 hp Reeves steam engine they plowed with from 1920 through 1939.

Another photo of Dad's TD-9 pulling one of our two Rumely combines during harvest. Dad is shoveling grain in the back of his K-5 IH truck. Believe it or not, Dad traded this TD-9 for the TD-40 with the dozer. The TD-40 is older, but way more powerful.

My icon photo has always been taken from this photo of Uncle Audie, Me and Cousin Fred moving this oil tank from one area of the farm to another about 1964. A 1934 TD-40 that was their first TracTracTor, and the faded red shows the original gray underneath coming out. I'm on the 1953 TD-18A, and Fred is operating the July 1936 TD-40 that I now own. It was gray too but repainted with the IHC Blue Ribbon restoration program during WWII, when they rebuilt tractors with genuine IHC parts and then painted them "red" like the new ones.

Another photo taken of us moving the tank, and the 1934 TD-40.

Son Mike was 4 years old in this photo where I was working with a sick cow and my K-5 mounted Farmhand. The 1934 TD-40 is at the right hand corner of the shed. Like a dummy, I repainted it RED!

1396877807_FarmhandTD-40Mikeage4.thumb.jpg.f845525af5203abe52965b31ea5fcb04.jpg

This lousy postage stamp size photo was right after Dad and I bought this used 1953 TD-18A to farm with in late 1964. I was proud enough to wear my two tone gray IH coveralls I was wearing when working at the IH Dealership, Bourke Motor and Implement Company in Lewistown, Montana. I was wearing these, or another pair just like them when the news came over the Bourke shop radio that President John Fitzgerald Kennedy had been shot.

This TD-18A got used for other things too. This was a wet year when the IH A-160 truck was stuck. I also pulled out the IH 403 Combine when it got stuck too, this same harvest. But no photo.😟

1074847507_TD-18AA160truckOopsCrystalLakeRoadGaryYaeger.jpg.e22eff6b80a584a32e4300d19369c492.jpg

What the TD-18A was intended to do. Pull farm machinery. This John Deere 620 chisel plow was the only piece of green machinery we had on the farm.

124125495_TD-18Atoolbarrodweedersnocabsharpred.jpg.be0024a906321a3dda0584616d8ece9a.jpg

I later built a cab for the TD-18A. I listened to the clanking of those tracks for a heck of a lot of hours. Likely one of the reasons I say, "Huh?" when someone talks to me softly!

583372009_TD-18Aprimedcabtoolbarrodweedersharrows_edited-1cropimp.thumb.jpg.f1db7210ab2ce897af0042df74c45ad2.jpg

In the mid-1970's I bought this 1955 TD-18A 181 Series, in a hillside with the tracks thrown! But I got it cheap, even if it a bunch of tools, jacks, blocks, porta-power, etc., I got it running (Starting valves were stuck too.) I used the heck out of it. Got it stuck (no photos) rebuilding a dam, plowed miles of snow. It sold for way more than I paid for it, at my auction sale in 1981. Mike and Michaelle are on it.

I'm dozing dirt with the 1955 TD-18A to allow this IH truck to pull the house I grew up in, into its new resting place.

After Uncle Audie passed away, his TD-40 TracTracTor was stored in my Quonset. At my auction sale, it was sold to the gentleman who bought our farm. He later gave it to me and hauled it to Whitefish, Montana for me, where we lived after the farm went down the drain in 1980. At Whitefish, I had it out at the first ever public steam show held at our place southeast of town. Grandson Maverik is riding with me on this July 1936 model.

You had to know my good friend and steam mentor, Austin Monk to understand this photo. He had his 50 hp Case steam engine at our place and his 4-bottom John Deere plow. He wanted to see what the TD-40 would do pulling his plow.

111482693_TD-40meAustin1994.thumb.jpg.fc3a58f9a6cb09c0eaba9be5969535d8.jpg

It pulled the plow easily. I was pulling it here, breaking sod in 4th gear. 

175853288_TD-40meAustinplowingWhitefish1995imp.thumb.jpg.b67772f05a007cf88679ce94c9c65750.jpg

It's job at Whitefish was to pull the steam engine in and out of the shed.

107909881_Case15TD-40Shed.jpg.03e06a418e9cf82e98d081d7b5da004f.jpg

When we moved to Helena from Whitefish and Kalispell 12 years ago, Mike wanted to break some land to raise a crop to be able to thresh with steam. He put it in 5th (road gear) for kicks and this photo.

Mike, the TD-40 and IH 4-bottom plow on his place.

In October of 2013, I'd had enough of this "pre-IH Red" TD-40 being still red. I was determined to paint it its original gray. It was basically gray all over underneath, on the oil pan, rails, rear housing, etc. I believe IH Red went onto production units in November or December 1936? Pressure washing it. Mike had gifted me the seat cushion and arm rest recovering for my birthday!

Magneto and gasoline primer detail. One thing I learned before I was 10 years old was the primer was the most important thing on one of these diesels.

Decals on. I'm so sorry I don't remember the old Canadian Gentleman's name who I bought these decals from, but he passed away sometime after this.

Backing the TD-40 out of the shop and taking it to the shed.

After priming it, it will usually start with the first 2/3 of a round cranking. I started one all by myself at age 10, thereby earning passage to get to actually plow in the field that year. Did I ever feel BIG!

It gets used some too.

It pulls the steam engines out of the shed every spring. Mike likes the TD-40!

It spends a lot of time in the shed anymore, here next to the McCormick-Deering threshing machine.

My last three pictures are from 1949, when I was in the First Grade at the one room school in Glengarry, Montana. I loved art class. A Farmall, a mowing machine, a plow, a TD-24 (which I'd seen the first one in Montana at the Great Falls International Harvester Company Store), and last but not least, a TD-40.

I could no longer tell you why the man is walking ahead with a firearm? Maybe to shoot field mice plowed up in the spring?

The sun is shining on a TD-40, a house, and an IH Farmall. I've had an inferiority complex for many years. And, did I ever tell you guys that our youngest daughter Mev says, "Dad's a little bit 'Rainman'?" Gary😁

PS: Administration: Thank you for giving me my IH life back here on Red Power!

Almost thinking the haitus was worth it…what a tracked extravaganza, yes Gary it was over a TD 18 on Smokstak that had me contact you and invite you over, one of the best things for RP 

My uncle got one of those bolted panel oil tanks but not that big and can’t recall how they moved it, maybe my Uncles TD18 was involved?

Oh those 1895 Winchesters and the 1894's I had at Big Mountain Trading Company in Whitefish, almost 40 years ago now! I'm glad you enjoyed them. Well I just as well post the  1876 and 1886's too. I no longer own them. Gary😁

On page 915, I'd posted photos of a good friend Carol from North Dakota on Facebook. She is a real farm girl, but not a country girl. I liked this photo I posted of her sitting on her dad's 10-20 McCormick-Deering tractor that had been converted to rubber.

821659602_CarolonherdadsMcCormickDeering10-20tractorca1947IH.jpg.99e441b1130aa475ad3e5d1427cb5090.jpg

At Age 8, she's climbing up on the bundle wagon (hayrack the rest of the year!) at the to pitch bundles into the threshing machine. Her older brother Ellis is driving the Farmall Super C at right, moving bundle wagons in and out.

1197040274_CarolRockswoldclimbinguponthebundlewagonhayracktopitchbundlesatage8crop.jpg.8db54e453e0ab1c695e0f1b86cdea4ef.jpg

Carol is pitching bundles into the threshing machine (R) here at an older age.

With that photo I also posted a picture of her father's IH Farmall Super C that she drove for her dad haying on a daily basis during the season. I think I see a Model A Ford Sedan at right also! In this photo she hadn't seen a badger hole that was hidden by the windrow of hay she was raking, and it broke the narrow front bolster steering shaft. A neighbor brought his John Deere to lift the tractor for the shaft replacement. Farm neighbors are usually very helpful to each other. At least here in the northwest and mid-west.

In another post, I put photos of that IH Farmall Super C, as of recent. These are them. Sad, but very restorable.1616154114_CarolRockswoldsIHSuperCFarmall.thumb.jpg.0f88aba6be2ece669bbeca9b5d55531d.jpg

1792464899_CarolRockswoldsIHSuperCFarmallrearview.thumb.jpg.c08c61b6088d0f86f2e412036ef674ac.jpg

Well after the posts above, I stumbled onto another photo of hers of her little grandson Graham sitting on the Farmall Super C Carol used to operate, now at his Great uncle Steve's place, where the IH sets today. I hope Steve decides to restore it someday. I remember hinting to Dad at Bourke Motor and Implement Company in Lewistown, Montana that I was sure interested in a Farmall C. We seemed to have every IH Farmall "letter series" BUT the Farmall C. This is an IH Tractor on a North Dakota Farm.  Gary😁

PS: Did I mention she's deaf? And that she attended Gallaudet University, just like my Aunt May did? This lady amazes me. I guess the reason I have so much empathy for this Facebook friend is because I grew up my entire single life with my Deaf Uncle Bill living with us. He taught me to have compassion for the deaf. He was just like a dad to me. The last photo I have of me with Uncle Bill. And that 4568 is an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm!

Thank you for caring B.J. If everyone had been having the same problem I'd have wondered. But I'm "out there" so far on here and Facebook that it is no wonder the hackers found me. Gary

Glad to see the "old codgers" back together.

I ain't gonna make nobody no promises-------but will make an extra effort to behave myself.  It will be much easier to do today than it was a few years ago-------so let's roll the dice and take a chance!!!!😇

It's great to see you are back here to "keep the pot stirred!" The guys have missed you, that's for sure. I had to put a photo of you on your 1943 TD-14 moving some Delta Dirt around with that Bucyrus Erie dozer. I'll send you an email about what I did but not this very minute.  Gary😁

Glad you're back and hopefully you'll get your computer problems took care of also. And if you feel a misbehavin' spell coming on, just go to the gin office there in Avon and sling a few dominoes around and eat a hand full of peanuts......😊

Funny TwoStep-------but your comment brought to my attention another change in the times.  We don't seem to see the old domino games and B-S sessions around the gins , etc anymore like in the old days.  Life seems to move at a much faster pace than a few years ago.

What kind of year is Booger Creek Gin expecting.  No pickers in field yet here locally-------cotton is late.

😇😇------it's such a strain;   but I am trying the best I can.😰

Actually l got some work done on the gin building itself. My grand daughter was helping me on the IH Transtar truck-Cat D8 and lowboy trailer kits but school started and she is busy with band and other things. But she said "Grandpa l like working on the truck stuff. Would you mind if l get to work on it on weekends and stuff?" So we put that on hold for a while.

But l started on the gin building and built a mock-up out of foam board to get all the measurements right so when l start cutting styrene hopefully there won't be any costly mistakes. And l've already heard the jokes about it looking like a blue spotted Holstein........1175044216_ginmock-up-2.jpg.200bbd7619f10cd6ab8b8e0ce24d9b81.jpg168706884_ginmock-up-3.jpg.94ba5f254fae7328b356fcb77ceb217b.jpg1195970110_ginmock-up-5.jpg.406505bd3fe63c0ea263fe7815ff5de1.jpg

 

Also started on a 1/32nd scale Pete module truck. had to cut and extend the frame. lf l get my nerve up, l'm going to try a custom paint job on the cab and the module bed.

I'm so glad this is back up!!! I know I don't contribute much but sure do enjoy the stories and pictures!!! Hope all are doing well. I just got done with a broken ankle. But as soon as that cast was off in the hay field I went. The new clutches in the semi's were too stout but the tractors wasn't. Just as I thought things were finally going good, the Boss (Wifey) caught Covid. So in quarantine the family went (luckily no one else caught it). But we are all good now but that stuff has sucked all the energy out of her really quick still. So we are back up and pushing forward. Thanks again for whomever brought this back!!! Still using an International TD-14 a lil on Newton County, Arkansas Farm🤣🤣🤣

Gary, I really enjoy the old photos of IH track machines at work.  Fascinating to a midwestern farm boy who grew up "knowing" that all farm tractors rode on rubber tires!  Best wishes from a small Iowa family Farm with IH tractors on it. 😀

Well I guess we finally came through the drought.  Altho we did get a name change.  I guess we'll have to be more careful in how we word things.  

Gary, I noticed a while back we were talking about some trucks hauling cotton seed.  And you suggested two of them were Chevrolet, but we couldn't make out the other two.  When you put up that photo of the Yaeger boys I noticed behind Alvin's right ear is a General motors truck and it shows the grill like a Chevrolet but with a couple of blanks on some of the grill bars.  I believe this is the same truck that we were wondering what make it was on the trucks hauling cotton seed.  I believe it to be the same truck as in your yard -- a General Motors truck -- with a slightly different grill than the Chevrolet.  

Hope we last longer this time.  I'm going to try my best.

Fred, yes that truck had been in a minor traffic accident and Dad bought it to put an F-10 Farmhand on. It was a GMC truck. Us old boys love testing our memories from things WAAaaaay back, don't we. It's kind of a right of passage for us to do that. Automobiles, pickups and trucks have kind of lost their way with me anymore. I used to be able to start with about a 1949 Ford or GM car and remember the years up through the 1960s. We were blessed to grow up in a time when that was all possible. It's a good thing they put an emblem on the trunks of cars I follow anymore, because the vehicles themselves are about the same.

Guys, you all know I don't know anything. And for darn sure, I can no longer remember what I posted or I didn't post. When I see a photo I think would nice for this conglomeration of mine, I put an IH in the title. Now I haven't the foggiest idea whether I've posted it in the past or not? So we need to just suck it up and it should improve from now on. This was the "August" photos I drew from tonight. My September photos, down the road, should be more foolproof.

This 820 John Deere tractor was listed with IH behind it!😁😁

Now, here's a dandy that is definitely IH, this is Tom Kay's beautiful IH 1206 International Diesel.

I believe this is an IH 706 Diesel harvesting sugar beets? A nice old Chevy truck too. I used to have one about that same year that could pass for a brother to this one.

This Farmall H is a pre WWII, I'm pretty sure. Two farmers visiting.

I've always been fascinated by the old fire department's horse pulled steam pumpers.

Are any of you familiar with a "Gyrotiller"? I'd never heard of them. Apparently they "make" farmland?

I think this three wheel Hart Parr is a Forty? It may be a smaller model judging by the front wheel? Maybe Roger knows?

This was my Great Uncle GR Hamilton's Forty Hart-Parr tractor in north central Montana.

I'm going to ask Roger the size of this Rumely Oilpull. He's tried to teach me, but I'm too old and too forgetful to remember now.

This is an IHC gas tractor pulling a road grader in the country.

From Roger's part of the country is this Minneapolis double cylinder engine. I don't know the HP, but it isn't a real huge Minneapolis double.

I couldn't tell you what make this small wooden wheel return flue steam engine is that is loaded on this Model TT Ford Truck.

Last but not least is this photo of four IH Tractors on a Montana Farm! Gary😉
