Boy, I tell ya. Nothing is built to last anymore.

Started this old pooper up and let it run for over an hour today checking everything I could think of to check, just to make darned sure everything was as it should be.

Thing is only 31 years old; comon' where's the quality anyway?

Darned right front screw in the valve cover had worked loose, was weeping a bit of oil and I had to stop, grab a phillips screwdriver and tighten it.

Wonder if there's any waranty left? I should be compensated for all the work I had to go thru! :>)

Allen, I convinced you've got to be Irish with all the GOOD luck you have.'course stuborness and drive help alot. I'm glad you engine worked out for you. Also looks to me that you're gonna be okay on the combine.

I saw one (F-2) on ebay starting at$10,000 with a buy it now for $15,000

and I thought WOW Allen has done okay. And it was in South Carolina'bout a half million mies away from you. (Wouldn't that transport cost been a dilly) I noticed you weather isn't very different from ours here 'cept for that damn wind. And yes I envey you NOT having the rust problems that we do.

Continued Good luck on your projects. You do good work.

Just my luck making a quick fix on a small oil leak the screw would have broke.

If that is all the problems you had after starting it you are a lucky man. Isn't too often things work out that way. Good luck on the rest of the job.

Yep, I was worried about this one; sweatin' bullets, actually.

I could have either bought one from the local salvage yard, heard it run prior and spent a truckload of cash or GAMBLE on this one, sight unseen, unknown seller and a million miles away.

Consider myself very fortunate that I found an honest man. He told me that it had 1800 hours on it and it does indeed run/sounds like it.

Can't get over how things rust up back east tho. Metal wouldn't rust here like that in two lifetimes.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
