For some reason Dad had a couple DC's and a 70 JD diesel. Iwas about a sophmore in high school and would plow till about 8 and then go home to do homework. Dad and brothers milked and did chores. Up at 4 am brush the frost off the seat on the 70 and fire the pony and plow till 7:15 then get ready for school. Several times a mechanic would come and try everything to keep the flywheel tight on the 70. Dad traded for a CASE diesel 400. Came home from school and got a quick lesson on shifting the newly painted 400 with comfort cover on. Man did I love that tractor! Didn't need to wear Dad's Air Force parka anymore and my ears didn't ring when I went to sleep! Sealed my love for CASE tractors with that 400 Diesel.
