    My dad built me a 1938 Farmall B crop row. Great little machine. Id suggest one for sure. Stomp one brake and do doughnuts until you run out of gas. Of course, he kept it for himself, but thats another story.

    1961 Wheel Horse 551. Hoping to find the original engine, a Lauson 5.5 HP electric start. I'll restore this next year. Working on the mechanicals now.

    I have a 1957 John Deere 520 that I use for mowing trails in the woods, and lifting stuff with the loader.
  10. we got a old 8n ford w/all the attachments and for what you need that might be your answer,parts are easy to get and most farm sales have them or attachments,we use the brush hog and post hole digger the most and has been very reliable

    I've got a '46 Case VAC and it's real handy. Almost as much fun as old cars. Parts are easy to find, plenty of repops for restoration too. Even tractor shows at the fairgrounds. And way easier to restore than a car!

    I've got a 40s era Case VAC myself. It has been a very good tractor. I've only changed the oil once and replaced a lower radiator hose.

    I have a 61 (I think) Massey Ferguson 35 that I use to work my 15 acres. Hard to say what I use more often, the shredder or the post hole digger. Parts are readily available and not terribly expensive. I need to go through the engine this winter because it oil fouls at least 1 spark plug every hour. So far it looks as though I should be able to buy pistons, rings, bearings, valves, gaskets for around $500.

    Dad has a 50's 8N, no biggie you trip over them around here.

    One of the best times I've ever had was going to my friends Grandpa's place in Iowa, he has a huge collection of vintage tractors and an airstrip. He got every single tractor out on the airstrip and let us drive them all. Some were turn-of-the century. Lots had leather straps and handles on the flywheel, some had steel wheels. Don't know my tractors well but that was cool, a great memory :D He had a couple steam machines too.

    Here's my son's hot rod tractor. It was mine and restored by my Dad for his 3rd birthday, John Deere yellow flames and all:

    I have a JD 620 gas 2-cylinder. It was built in '57 I think. It has power steering and a live PTO, very nice to have if you actually plan on using it regularly. Old tractors are great.

    Ok, I hope you don't mind me dragging this thread back up, but I started to work on my grandpa's D2 this week and need some advice on the ignition.

    I have never worked on a mag ignition - how do I overhaul it?

    Got the levels right, new fuel, fresh plugs but still looking for a spark. It has been standing in a barn for at least 15 years.

  21. 50 Allis Chalmers WD, very handy to have around, mostly push snow with it and lift engines, cabs off trucks, and move cars around like a tow truck. Wouldn't be without it now.

    I've had Fords, Fergusons, and now have a Massey-Ferguson with live PTO which is a must for brush cutters and snowblowers. My neighbor has a '40's Oliver which runs great and may be for sale. An 8N with a flatty would be agreat thing to have.
  23. I grew up mostly operating the farmall letter series. Tractors are another thing im hoarding and have sitting & rotting.:eek: I have a super A with the engine from a 200. B with a wide front, 300 utility, 350 row crop gas, 350 row crop diesel, 4 M farmalls one has a shop built 3 point lift. 2 VAC case with the eagle claw hitch. BF Avery. Model U Moiline. I have a M & C Farmalls that Im parting out. VAC case parts. I have four crawler dozers Two TD14 A farmall , D4 7U Cat. & a Cletrac. Over at my folks farm there is a 420 john deer crawler loader, 930 case diesel , Narrow front B farmall, Super H farmall and a yellow H farmall the was bought new by the Air Base at Walnut Ridge Ar. It was used to pull the planes around. They smelted the planes down at that location after the war. It pulled the planes to their final demise. The goverment donated much of the property to the college. Many years later I think in 1987 the college had a auction. The yellow H wasnt running dad bought it for $185.00 We worked on the iginition got it going and my middle son who was 9 years old drove it home.:cool: Ill post some pictures later. Many tractors have went to the scrapper this past year since scrap got high.:mad: OldWolf

    I've got a 1961 Wheel Horse Suburban 551 with a 5hp Techompsi (spelling) which is a factory motor. Just took it to a show last weekend. I've had it five years and bought it up in Denton NC back in 06. And it was bone stock, all rusty, everything original, but it ran. In 07', we mildly fixed it up (still need decals and rubber for the fenders/seat. But, we decided to keep the old, original, dry rotted back tires on it! I've never had to air them up. Every show I go to, I have people wanting to buy it, but as far as I'm concerned, I'll have it till the day I die! I also have a restored 1937 Briggs WMB (Washing Machine Briggs) gas engine my grandfather fixed me for my 7th birthday and I have a mini 1950's steam engine collection. Tractors were my first love before cars, heck, we used to go to 10-12 BIG shows a year, when I was still wrapped in a blanket. I got a john deere a pedal tractor for christmas when I was three, and I always entered and won in the pedal pulls and races. They called me the "Richard Petty of Pedal Tractors!" haha

    I've always wanted a John Deere A, but they're so dang big, so I'd settle with an H model. But right now, I need to focus on a hot rod...after all, I can't drive a tractor to school!

    -Cody (I'll post pictures of my Wheel Horse tomorrow.)
  29. I have a Wheel Horse, mid 60's variety. The grandkids learned to drive it. I display it on the back of my Crusty Cruise #2 at car shows. Yes, it still starts runs and drives.
