Here a few pictures of the plow day we went to last month. It was a good 130 mile drive so we had to leave early. Had planned to leave around 6:30 am but that didn't last long. Due to it being the first time to load both on the trailer I didn't get them loaded correctly the night before. Ended up we were going to take just 1 of them. But I sure didn't like that so after laying awake half the night I decided I had put too much work in these tractors to just take 1. I wanted to try both of them out on a plow. So I was up and in the barn at 5 am to fix some stuff to be able to load and haul them both safely. We ended up leaving around 7:30 am with both safely loaded.

Hope y'all don't mind the wrong color tractors. Second tractor is me on the '49 M.

1949 Farmall. This is the one we rolled new bearings in and has new rings. We bought it as a parts tractor since the motor was locked up. Turned out I was able to turn it over a little with a pipe wrench. Opened it up and found a bad bearing. Easy fix.

1947 Farmall. This one had lots of parts missing, bad rear rims and all tires were bad. When we got it running we found out the transmission had problems. Lots of bearings out and 5th gear wouldn't hold. I almost gave up on this one.

All loaded up and ready to go back home.

We had fun and both tractors ran good.

That first picture of the guy on the Allis has got to be a classic. Gets to drive down the furrow with his walker close at hand. I'll bet he was a happy man to be there.

Being 75 myself, a picture like that is precious.

It might be just the way it appears from the camera, but it looks like the caster on your single front tire Farmall M could be backwards? I had an Uncle in Arkansas 40+ years ago that took an M out from under a cotton picker and forgot to reverse the single wheel at the boster. Tractor drove like a pig and took him a while to figure out what was wrong.

Nope, it's not the camera angle. It is backwards. Was like that when we got it and just haven't got around to changing it yet. It actually doesn't drive too bad. Hence it is still like that. Hope to find a wide front end for it.

Looks like fun. I am curious about the single front wheel. Is that a home built one? And does it just look like it is angled to the front, usually it is towards the back a little.

Roger, it is angled to the front. Was like that when we got it. It looks to have been home made or from some other application. Hope to find a wide front for that tractor to put under it or a regular narrow front.

No, I do not rest my foot on the clutch pedal. Looks like I was in the process of stopping.

Foot on clutch because I had either just got going again or was fixing to stop because I was right at the end and had to wait on the tractor in front of me.

Maybe the picture was ill-timed and you were in the process of depressing the clutch to stop, but if you regularly use the clutch pedal as a footrest, try to break yourself of the habit ASAP.

It's hard on the throwout bearing, and causes premature clutch wear. You just got done with a bunch of transmission work on that tractor, no sense in having to do it again.

Txdutchman;
What's wrong with the color of these tractors? Tractors are like horses. A good horse is never a bad color! Thanks for sharing, where did ya'll plow? Dsmythe
