About 1987 we were doing a 10 mile move to another farm when I had my scare. About 1/2 way there the road is flat except for one 25 ft dip kinda on a curve. My C11 Gleaner got to the bottom and died! No trafic till I broke down, Dad was behind me on top of the hill and my buddy was on the other side tring to stop or slow people down with no luck. Having a 13 ft head on the combine and over as far as I could without going down a 4 ft ditch I was still on the center line. I was working fast to find the problem! Sitting on the gas tank taking the last fuel filter off to change it I herd an air horn and brakes locking up I hung on for dear life! He missed the combine but did hit the pitman arm on the head on the side of the trailer and spun me and the combine sideways in the road! Thank God I had left it in gear. The trucker never stoped and now not only did it not run I had 2 flat steering tires sitting acrossed the road. Dad and my buddy blocked the road with there trucks and came down to see if I was ok. Someone had called fire and EMS and they were there in no time as well as the State patrol. I had some cuts to my hands and alot of bruses but was ok, Just scared silly! I got realy lucky when the tow truck showed up as he was a friend of dads and he towed the combine to his brothers place about a mile up the road for free! We came back the next day to get it and it turned out to be the last piece of fuel hose had colapced just before the carb. That was a close call and dont want to do it agin! Me and the big man upstairs had a long talk that day. Bandit
