Exclusive Article
A Collection of Farmall Stories
by Various Authors

We receive quite a few short stories from our readers, and we appreciate every one. Presented here is a collection of two Farmall tractor stories for your enjoyment. [Editor]

Memories of Dad's Farmall A

My father first started farming with a Farmall A that he purchased in 1940. It was used on a large grain farm in North Dakota where I still live close to but do not farm. There are many memories of this tractor mowing hay and cultivating, Dad made a hay bull rack for the front of it and also a 30 foot sprayer to spray crops with. This tractor did many tasks and when I restored it the gears and bearings had little wear. I can remember many hot days it was used in large hay fields to buck hay, also to cut the hay. It was overhauled couple of times and to this day now is all painted up, restored, and on the same farm just used to do small tasks. If it could talk it would have much to say about places it has been.

Dad's Farmall 350
Mike Hulstein

I grew up on a small farm in Iowa, and as long as I can remember my Dad had a 350 Farmall. The land was sold 10+ years prior but my Dad kept the 350 to haul manure, since he had a few hogs. I moved to Florida during this time but moved back to my home town just in time before my Dad sold the acreage & moved to town.

There was a small farm sale and I had told my Dad I was always going to buy his Farmall 350. The day of the auction came and I was a little nervous. In my mind I had it all planned out so I would not have to over spend and I would still walk away with the 350. My plan was to wait until the first person bid and then I, being the owners son, would jump in and bid fast with no hesitation (showing I wanted my Dad's tractor).

Prior to the tractor was a skidloader for sale, the bidding took what seemed to be 5-10 minutes. Next was the Farmall 350. The auctioneer said a few words and my Dad started the tractor. I was in my planned mode, only listening for the yell of a bid. The auctioneer stopped to say a few more words and I ignored the speech (since I had a Plan, and what could he said that I didn't already know about my 350).

Now still in plan mode I heard the auctioneer say SOLD. Dumbfounded, I grabbed his partner and said "How could it be sold, there was no bid?!". He said there must have been a silent bid. Not sure what that meant, and now feeling terrible about loosing my Dad's 350, I looked at my Dad for some explanation. He said "Didn't you hear him say when he was talking about the tractor that he had a bid so the tractor would not sell for under 2000.00 dollars?"

Now, knowing I had really screwed up, I told the auctioneer's partner that I really wanted my Dad's 350. He said to talk to the auctioneer because he thought he had bought it for himself. I did talk to the man and he allowed me to purchase the tractor for the same amount.

I don't think I could get any closer than that to loosing MY Farmall 350. Since then I have restored it to looking brand new again. Even took pictures of both my Mom & Dad sitting on it.

Today's Featured Article - Earthmaster Project Progress Just a little update on my Earthmaster......it's back from the dead! I pulled the head, and soaked the stuck valves with mystery oil overnight, re-installed the head, and bingo, the compression returned. But alas, my carb foiled me again, it would fire a second then flood out. After numerous dead ends for a replacement carb, I went to work fixing mine.I soldered new floats on the float arm, they came from an old motorcycle carb, replaced the packing on the throttle shaft with o-rings, cut new ga ...
