Went to the local steam engine and tractor show today featuring Allis Chalmers. This was in central Illinois about 1 hour southwest of Springfield, the capitol. City called Jacksonville, Illinois. Probably had 200 AC tractors . saw half a dozen small G, 3 dozen C and B tractors, same number of WD and WD45s. They had a good selection of D17, a couple D12 and 14s and a few newer 180-210 size units. One interesting thing was they had 3 WF tractors and 3 IB tractors. Never seen that many low riders in one place. Couple of Cane B units and a nice looking "mule". I forgot the guys name (mule owner)but he posted here last year and showed up at Penfield ILL on the Indiana border at last years show. All in all, quite a few nice tractors. If your within 200 miles and have sunday free, might be a good trip. start early.

If you decide to go back today please check on something for me. I posted a short while ago about the WD with the serial number stamped next to the break cover. I've asked a lot of old AC enthusiests about this and none have ever seen the number stamped there...one would not believe it until he came over and seen it for himself...he used to work for an AC dealer! It would be at least an interesting piece of AC trivia to know how many WD/WD45's were stamped like this. May be someone at the gathering might know.

Thanks for the info Stevo! My brother lives in Downers Grove Illinois. I don't how close or how far that is to Jacksonville, but I'll have to drop him an e-mail.... Steve B.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
