I think it was the 1980s when a British company, Shelbourne Reynolds, marketed a stripper header here in North America. Never saw one work but I figured they might be good for flax. A way to avoid putting that terrible straw through the combine.

My JD dealer sells a few of those shelbournes each year.  We are going to look into them someday.  On the flax, I don’t know if it’s the variety or your climate or what but there has been a little bit of resurgence around here growing flax and the guys I know that are growing it don’t seem to have any problems combining it.  Don’t matter what brand of combine either.  I have one neighbor that planted a flax/chickpea mix. Turned out good considering the dry summer we had.

Here is some International LB engine literature that I got this past weekend to go with my LB. The date code shows it’s a 1946

The LB’s were made up until 1948. There were two different sizes as the literature shows. But quite a few more of the 3-5 hp models were made after 1945 according to a list I have. I looked at a 1 1/2- 2 1/2 1948 LB that was completely restored, it could have been mine for $400 but it was 6.5 hrs from me

Seems strange to see a big (for 1971) four wheel drive tractor without a cab but it was still considered a luxury accessory in those times.

Are there any more details in that ad?? I’m trying to figure out what models they are.  I’m guessing the one on the right is the 700.  The one on the left I’ve never heard of and it guessing it didn’t make into production.

I can't find any more details on that ad. According to my info they only had the models 118 and 145 in 1971. Not sure what came after that but I don't recall any hydrostatic drive models. Unless the bi-directional was?

The 300 was around 1975. It was hydro drive.  Bigger one still looks to have cat v8

Another good old Massey Harris ad from 1951. Some of the numbers on fuel cost per acre and the amount of land they farmed with just a few horsepower seem hard to imagine today.

Something about the positioning of the fenders on this Allis Chalmers D17 makes it look like they are installed backwards. Lower photo shows it pulling a one way disk harrow . Known locally as a "disker".  From 1960.

Nothing wrong with the fenders as that is a ”wheatland” D-17 which is kind of laughable.  Wheatland tractors needed to have a little bit more beef then a D-17 and that’s probably why they are rare.

I have not doubt that is the way they were built but it still looks wrong compared to other makes. They generally covered more of the back part of the wheel and less of the front . See this 1256 for example. Front of the fender only comes maybe a quarter of the way down the front of the wheel and over half way down the back. The D 17 was just the opposite. I think IH had one model tractor with the same fender arrangement.
