|A John Deere and the Wire Gap|
I grew up on my dad's cotton & cattle farm in middle Tn. I began driving his 46 mod.A at about age 7.One morning he wanted me to start discing a field just down the road from our house.He had just adjusted the clutch tighter & cranked the tractor.It was a fuel burner so I switched her off gasoline to fuel.Dad said 'follow me..I'll open the gap into the field for you'. Here we go down the gravel road.Me on the tractor pulling a 8ft.JD disc in 2nd gear,dad walking ahead.If you have ever dealt with a wire gap you know sometimes they can be contrary depending on who closed it last & how many times the barb wire was wrapped around the fence post.We'll dad was having problems getting the gap undone.I reached for the hand clutch & it wouldn't release(adjusted too tight).About that time dad looks back & sees whats happening,jumps out of the way,I go through the gap,barbwire screaming for 4 miles,dad runs me down & gets the clutch to release & says 'shut her down son..I think we need to re-adjust that clutch' I no longer farm but own a JD 630 that I truly love to drive & hear run.Brings back many good memories of being raised up in the country & the many funny experiences I enjoyed.
