'round the pot-bellied stove / A few pulling pics
« on: July 26, 2008, 12:55:53 AM »
Actually the guy with the Army truck is my neighbor and ATISer Dave Reed (Otto Gas Engine Works). I think last year or the year before they let him hook up to the big sled. My sled only stops up to 7500 although at Daves show one year I gave another Army truck a good work out with my sled or maybe it gave my sled a good work out.

The semi and dump truck pulls were cancelled on account of rain so if Dave was registered to pull in that, he wasn't able.

The MM combine has very little where, I believe originally maybe a small or hobby farm had it new. If it hadn't been for the owner of the combine bringing all his MM stuff we may have only had 2 of our feature tractor show up.

Thanks Ralph, I missed a lot because of having to run the sled. Most of the day time pulling pictures were taken by other people. Its difficult to find someone willing to stay on the camera but I appreciate what they did get before boredom overtook.

Oh yea...in the first post, 3rd pic over in the firs row, I'm the fella in the black t shirt and jeans

Over all the show and pull was a little off...just not as many people or tractors showed up as years before but it was nice seeing the regulars..

And so I figured I'd put the pics up here....here's a few of my toys

1st pic is my 80 industrial

2nd is one of my 70's with the widefrontend

3rd is my pulling sled...I know it don't look like much but it'll stop 'em atleast up to 65, sometimes 7500 if the tracks right...people tell me my sled is mean but I think its more the sled operator whos mean....hmmmm

4th is my big trailer, all self contained notice the motor underneath behind the toolbox. Its hooked to a cylinder as well so the motor and hyd. oil tank slide in and out for easy fueling and servicing.

5th is my 28-44 thresherman special, solid cast front and rear wheels

7th of course we need a thresher for the 28-44. Its an Oliver I think one of the last built. Probably WWII era, as its made from galvanized steel but has been painted over. During that time there was a restriction on how much galvanized was allowed to be used....Oliver had the stuff stockpiled and used it, just painted it so nobody could tell. A good selling point to farmers....the story I've been told anyway

and finally number 8 is my little Oliver sprayer, cute little devil aint it

Well I'm down to the rear now and have finished taking off brake pedals, etc. Of course behind the brake covers was full of rear oil, so I'll be putting a couple seals in. Thats pretty typical for old 70's. I also have the motor on the stand ready to be taken apart.
       Oh and I had taken the rear tires off the rims...the backhoe makes an excellent bead breaker, sure beats swingin' a hammer....still sweated my butt off w/ the tire irons the rubber was pretty dang stiff to work with.

I don't think I'll have much trouble putting 'er back together, everything seems simple enough. But yes I did take plenty of pictures, along with drawing diagrams.

The VW has the original non turbo'd engine...we turned it way up, along with some other things. It sits where it does now because I got a little cocky with it. Weighted it down, hooked it to the sled and thus ripped the front end out. Like to figure out how to make it rear wheel drive or 4wd but still keep the original engine....but that'll be a project for a later date

Well I'm officially down to just the tractor. I have the grader attachment completely off. Here are a couple pics. Also I have 2 pics of the Lessmann loader I mentioned earlier in this thread. I'm starting to get a hankering to bring it in the shop and make it a mate to the grader.

Just to create a little buzz and show the redneck side of me, a pic of  Mad Max, the VW that thinks its a Peterbilt.....alright thats enough....Hope everybody enjoyed Independance Day

Lack of time is why I have practically quit working on the Titan. Now that the wheat is harvested and some needed building repairs have been made around the farm, I'll see if I can squeeze it in the shop.

Yea I've been helpin' Pop put up siding yesterday on his house. The side of the house we were working on we were able to stand on the new additions roof.....Now I've told him and he knew that roof was gettin a little soft. Wanted to hold off and put tin on it after we had finished the siding.  Well the roof was more than soft, dang if I didn't fall through.....and so today guess what we were doin'.  The roof was in worse shape than I thought.    Shooo am I worn out now!!!!

Yesterday I did get an hour or so in the shop and seperated the tractor from the grader frame. Just need to get the backhoe in and move the grader frame out of the way....I didn't take any picture but I will.  I feel like I'm progressing on it....can't wait to start filling the air with the smell of paint but I'm a ways from that!

There are more devices here for mowing grass than I care to admit--and they are all to old to have power steering or beverage can holders!

Thats funny....in the same boat over here as well. I can only rely on one mower consistantly though, except for when it doesn't start:rolleyes:  Might think about the can holder, especially w/o powersteering. Holding it betwixt your legs  will give you that moist feeling after hitting a gopher hole:eek:
