Stuck tractors

This is a reminder to teach your children well, for you may never know what might happen!When I was 12 or so, lived on a small farm in Spur Texas. My dad had retired, and spent most of his time raising a few acres of crops, and garden crops. He developed cancer at that time and only survived a few weeks after the prognosis. Some months later, I decided to take the tractors for a ride to keep them in running order, although I had never been on a tractor in my life. My dad had 3 tractors, a Ford 8N, a Farmall 504, and a John Deere 620 LP. I couldn't get the JD to turn over, so I cranked the Farmall every so often and took it for a ride down the dirt road. Man did I think I was something! I found out later, that the JD's bucket had blown off and had been stuck due to rain. Mom sold the ford to a neighbor, and with me getting up in High School and buying myself a hot rod, the tractors were soon neglected. While I was in college, a man came by and talked mom into selling him the remaining 2 tractors. He told her both were stuck and offered her 150 each to take them away (to Mexico). I know in my heart the farmall was in running order, but they were gone by the time I found out. Strangely enough, I became interested in antique tractors some 15 years later and helped found a club in Lubbock. I've been restoring JD's and Farmalls ever since. Boy do I wish my dad had told me about the exhaust while he was around! Sure would like to have restored those two. Have a great Christmas and New Year, Jerry

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
