It has a flywheel pulley, hydraulics and, if I am not mistaken, power steering.....something our GTB didn't have.
I know dad used to use the GTB to run his Joliet pull behind corn sheller, I don't know if he ever used the G43 to do so. Corn shelling was a huge part of life from Amboy to Princeton to Dwight to Elburn in Illinois. We shelled our last corn crib in 1993 but those last 10 years were with a Joliet mounted on a 1947 International truck.
I am the only one of his children to have not only ever seen the G43 running but used to spend hours in the seat with "Mickey Mouse" muffs on my head and dad standing on the deck plate doing custom plowing. Beyond that, I know my uncle, Chuck Johnson, ran it some when he was a teen ager when dad needed help. So except for he and I, I don't think there is anyone else alive who has run the tractor.
