I might have something that you need for Tony the A. I picked up a couple tires and rims that fit an A or B farmall the other day south of Missoula. I could use a rim for my B project tractor as one has a small rust hole.  I asked the guy if he had anything else farmall related and he dug up a swinging drawbar and front cross bar for an A. His didn’t have any wear at all. I don’t know if it was ever used. I’ll paint it and put it on my A but you can have the old one if you want it. I thought you just have the hoop on Tony if my memory is correct. The drawbar isn’t wore out but has more wear then the one I just picked up. 

MT Matt, You might remember that Tony has some wear on it too! That's so thoughtful of you to pass off your old one. What a guy you are! Gary😁

International Harvester 7388 and 7788 4X4 Steiger Built tractors from Fargo, North Dakota. This was just before Tenneco bought IH. I understand only two of each of these were built. I'd never seen these. Gary😮

I think a couple of these were auctioned in the last couple years from a guy in Manitoba that was an old IH dealer and had them on his farm, seems there is controversy that more exist than the records indicate, they brought some big money and I think went back to the US, can't remember if it was the same buyer

This was about 5 miles South of me. I still kick myself for not being able to make it to the auction. I seem to recall one in his collection went to Australia? Although that might have been coffee shop talk.

I copied and pasted this from Facebook.

"In 1910, the Milwaukee factory produced the Reliance Type D. The 20 hp (15 kW) version used the same Famous engine as the IHC Type B 20-HP built in the Akron, Ohio and Upper Sandusky, Ohio plants at the same time. The Type D also was built in a 25 hp (19 kW) single-cylinder version. The 45 hp (34 kW) version used a 2-cylinder engine that was the first International Harvester engine designed specifically for tractor use. The cylinders were horizontal, laid side-by-side. The first Reliance tractors used the same evaporative cooling system as earlier IHC models but a distinctive rectangular radiator was developed for the Type D 45-HP. And in 1912 they were renamed titan and replaced the reliance name."

A GP John Deere pulls a plow on some rather pathetic looking soil. I don't even see the lugs marks on the driven on soil.

Ran across this thought it was intresting

Oh I remember the name so well jeeper61. When I was a kid, LeTourneau built the Tourn A Pull. I loved road building equipment back then and wanted to be "pusher Cat" operator when I grew up. At that same time I played with a "Tourn A Pull" belly dump in the sand box. It doesn't have the cab though. An open operator's area is what it has. Apparently that is one of the photos I lost, as I can't bring it up. But I'll fix that in a few days.  Gary😉

Never seen that style cab on a scraper but LeTourneau was instrumental in lots of heavy equipment design and innovation

Same here

I remember watching a local bypass going in one summer from my bike seat 

From the Euclid dozers pushing the path trough the woods the scrapers moving the dirt for the curve banking

The dump trucks bringing in the gravel and the asphalt  

I would write down the dump truck numbers, make and module in a pocket ledger book I had gotten some where 

Fun times

"Spot Anderson and Wallace Cox with the first self-propelled International Harvester IH McCormick 164-C combine in the Gallatin Valley, September 1949."

I can't believe this late date was of the first self propelled combine in the fertile Gallatin Valley of Montana. 1949. And, I've never heard of a 164-C McCormick combine. It has an unloading auger, grain bin atop the thresher body like the much later combines, a wide rear axle, and that rear housing almost looks like they turned one of the earlier types upside down. Do any of you guys know anything about these machines? It's a brand new one for me.

Our 123 SP McCormick is pictured I think, in 1946 or 47. High grain hopper, no auger, narrow rear axle.

I don't know one darn thing but I have some photos to post from Facebook and a national magazine. An IHC 10-20 Titan and a Model T Ford (likely TT truck?) at this homestead.

Mules pulling binders on a bonanza farm. It appears there a couple of "shockers" at right. (stookers in Canada)

A motorized grain binder pulled by a team of horses. The motor operated the binder's mechanism. The team only had to pull the binder.

I had to put this photo of a Fairbanks-Morse binder engine, since it was on a Deering "Rice" binder.

I'm guessing, but pretty sure this "Model T Truck" is a 1913 or 14 Model T Ford automobile with a "mak-a-truk" chain drive rear end with hard rubber tires. The EARLY form of Model TT truck conversion.

Two children watch an overshot hay stacker lifting a load of hay to the top of the haystack for the men with pitchforks to spread it out.

Another photo of a Farmall F-20, a newer styled Farmall, a rake, a Ford tractor pushing a buck rake, a horse pulled buck rake and I can't tell what that right team is doing, Maybe pulling the stacker to the top of the stack? Gary😉

Don't remember if l posted about this before or not. Little over a month ago, my wife, 3 granddaughters and a great grandbaby re-did my 'toy-workshop"room. They put down new flooring, painted the walls and moved the shelves.

Pic of the new table and chair.

image.thumb.png.5aca5d2d700e119cf16a974e3b7eaf5d.png

They put up a shelf to put my trucks and trailers on. They hung flourescent lights under the shelf. Alo hung some LD lights behind that rail in the upper part of the pic. Sure akes a difference to these old eyes...lol  Oldest granddaughter printed and hung some tractor and pickup pics on the wall.

Got some plastic cases for paint and parts storage.

Today, I remembered to take photos of my toy "Tourn A Pull" toy I got at age 7. I'll never forget Mom riding to Great Falls for the day with Aunt Lillian. Lillian's son Fred got a toy that day from Sturrock's Toy store too. I forget what. Maybe a road grader? These toys were built to last. They raised me, two nephews and son Mike (birthday boy), who repainted it for me about the time I moved to Helena 14 years ago. Maybe a little before that?

I think I already posted this picture of Mike. He was dressed in his Class A Army uniform for a friend's funeral recently.

If a guy had that junkyard and a good size body shop with restorers hired, there'd be well over a million bucks! Thanks for posting Iowa Boy. I saw that a long time ago on Facebook, but forgot all about it. Gary😁

Kinda along the same theme, here is a pic l found online several years ago. Not sure about the year models but l'd guess late 60's or early 70's. After l got to really looking at the pic, l wonder what that extra gauge is right behind the windshield? Like what said earlier, l bet there are lots of people out there that would pay BIG bucks to have those old Harleys.

Wow, there is a bunch of money there in Peru too twostepn2001. I wonder if those gauges weren't tachometers? That is sure a sad, sad sight.

This was my 1953 Harley 74. My aunt and uncles 1957 Plymouth Fury and the house I grew up in.

I've stated many times, I used to dream that I didn't really sell it. I could wake up and it is still out in the shop. (Nope!)

This all just reminds me of all of the waste in this world. Jeeps left on islands after WWII.

All those Harleys in the junkyard are evolutions 1984-2000 and were a great engine, some would argue the best reliability, I would assume they are some form of police FLH model, not sure what that guage would be

But Gary's Pan is the bike I would want ♥️
