  6. Nice restoration job. Looks like work, past and future.

    I was thinking a Farmall A... or M. ;)

    Yeah, I'll give you that...long as it's as old as the A line. 8^)
    Sorry I got a soft spot for the old "A" especially the late model row
    crop front end. What can I say, it was the first vehicle I drove after
    learning to ride a motorcycle. Ain't nothing like firing up an A in
    the morning. Well allowing for firing up a steam powered tractor.

  8. Oh, it's old. It was built before our "M"... and the "M" was built
    the same year I was born.
    Our "A" has a wide front, where the "M" has the tricycle front. It
    also has a 4 tine drop-down plow underneath and a 3 tine plow in
    back. I can email you a pic, if you want... She's old and she looks
    it but she runs and plows like she just came off the assembly line.
    Steam, huh? "Road Locomotives" that were introduced in 1868. They
    were used in the late 1800 to early 1900s. I've seen one at a tractor
    show. Evidently there are still a few restored ones around. Looks
    like they could get popular again, what with the cost of gas/diesel.
    Our Farmall A is gas, the "M" is gas/propane. Our Massey F. Backhoe
    uses gas too but we also have a Massey Ferguson 235, which uses
    diesel. If he doesn't run it wide open, Joe can run the 235 all day
    on one fill-up and have some left in the tank. Better have a thick
    wallet to run that backhoe. You'd have to fill it up as often as you
    would a motorcycle on a long road trip, though not near that amount in
    the Mo-cyle. ;^)

    I was speaking of the John Deere "A". I learned on one with what JD
    called the "row crow" front end. Two wheelsset very close to the
    middle. Open those pressure relieve valves, pull out the choke and
    fire her up. Quiet the show some days, mind you no flames.
    Sounds like fun.
