I'm not super-knowledgeable about them, but my 2-year old son and I went to a show last weekend. Pretty cool. Uploaded some pics, but the videos will be much cooler once I get a chance to upload and post 'em.

I'm not big into them, but my boys, 6 & 4 are into anything farm related. We have a Thresherman's show every year in a nearby town. There is also an annual "Plow Days" that rotates from town to town. Here are a few pictures I took at it last year.

We have a 48 farmall cub, a 42 John Deere A hand start, a 46 John Deere A electric start, and a 48 John Deere B electric start.

Johnny Poppers are great fun.

I mow our grass with the 42 A using a John Deere number 5 Sickle Mower, 7 feet per swath.

Good looking *Haitch*. They really are the baby of the popper line up, almost more fun because of it.

Need to clean that yellow paint off the axles though. They came unpainted so most people paint them a flat black or keep them oiled to prevent rust.

This tractor belonged to my father and grandfather, and now me. It's a 1949 Farmall H that our family has owned since new. My friend (who restores tractors) restored it for me last winter.

There is one for sale at a Ferguson dealer not far from here. They have side business of restoring tractors and do good work. Pic attached, but its not good quality since it came from a cell phone. PM me if your buddy wants the details.

Wow. That H looks real good.

Thanks ncsone! Your super A looks real nice too! It took about 200 hours to restore the H, no internal engine work either just gaskets, new clutch and ignition. It was less rusty than most older tractors because it was always stored indoors.

Speaking of Antique Tractors.... my buddy is trying to restore his fathers Farmall and is on the hunt for the below items, anyone have any hints on where to find them? They are in Michigan....


What he needs:
a Roosa Master injector pump for a 1976 Farmall 706...as well as four injectors with glowplugs

Specifically for a D282 engine...there are two. DBGFC 631-20AJ is the model number of the pump

A lot of pumps turn up on Ebay, but if he has one now, just have it rebuilt. Trying a used one is usually a waste of money. Same with the injectors- send them to the pump shop and have them gone through. Glow plugs are available new, and aren't too expensive. Also have him check out yesterdaystractors.com. Lots of good info there, and parts sales also. I have a number of old tractors, including an IH 560 Wheatland with a D282. When the pump locked up, I installed a D414 from a 966. Should be fun when done. I'm pulling a few big Minneapolis Molines now- one has a 605" motor and another has an 800". Wife thinks we should boat more and pull less. Imagine that.
