Been posting pix here on diff forums. Here's a mix of some odd-ball stuff and many brands and couple generic over-view shots of show. Note drive on Doodle-bug. Chevy car and rear axle drives a spur gear that drives OUTSIDE the bull gears on wheels!

Love that Diesel 990.

That WAS a nice smooth running and quiet rig. Older fella was a truck mechanic for years and that was an engine off a trailer that had it's own hydraulics or such. I like the way he lengthened and bent the drive lever back to himself for better reach. I wanna try that on mine. I have to get some of slop out of mine before it's gonna work right too.

Thanks for the pics. That 990 looks great. Does it really have a Perkins diesel in it?

Last day for me today. Was nice till 2:00 ish and rained pretty good. Let up for awhile but later came down hard. Many packing up and leaving. Did have some new tractors tho that came in for day. Too bad it wasn't better. Whole bunch of local IN Wheelhorse gang and some really nice show tractors and modifieds. NO, no pix of those. They are Red Square guys, go there and see, ha! A few more Sears rigs came in and another little Craftsman and more implements. I sold my MM color GT 14 WHorse and thought I had tiller sold, but came back and said turns wrong direction for his tractor. Was going on diff brand than tiller was for. Got rid of that Electrac rear-end to fella with some at home. Here's a few more pictures. That first Whorse in pink is actually a BOY'S tractor. He saw one at a show and wanted one that color. Hmmm! Should DAD worry? Was all powder-coated! Family also had pink tee shirts on then. Weird!
