Let's see, he said it was RED and he hasn't owned one yet. I'll say a Wheel Horse. 

Did I win? 

 

I said I haven't owned this MODEL.....I never mentioned BRAND!   :smilewink:   I've owned 5 Wheel Horses in years past.

I bet the people that make to plow day will find out what it is. I have an idea, but can't say for sure. What ever it is, it will be very cool when Daniel is finished with it. :thumbs:

That word should be changed to "Is Ever".

 

Just took the third engine into the farm shop & placed up on a stand for easier working.  Gonna put the radiator back on, but around where the engine fan can function.  Hot out, so decided I've sweated enough until feeding/milking time.  Need to put on some type of air filter too before much more running.

I think it reads right, you always get them done and usually ahead of your projected finish date!!

Well, my restorations usually run past my early expectations.  The mechanical parts are my favorite, so that goes quicker.

Yah well it usually goes something like this "this is what I bought but I don't have time now to work on it". And a week later the project is well on it's way. Hmmmmm. I wonder who is jerking who's leg here. Is it possible that someone in particular is not as busy as he would have us believe?  :smilewink:

I wish that were true!  When I've been working on these engines, I should have been resting.  But I can't rest when I have something like this to work on, so........

 

  Just finished feeding & ready to milk, but took time to cover up the engine still on the trailer, as some hit & miss showers out there.  Wanna work on the engine in the shop, but these darned cows wanna get milked!   :smilewink:

And who in the heck can rest when he wants to be doing something he enjoys. I know the feeling. I hope now that you have had all three running you will take a break. Your heart could use it. I'm not preaching but being on heart medications myself know that stress and lack of rest is a short cut to the grave. Take care my friend.

I hope that you are able to have all three running. Your comment about doing it yourself is spot on. Those of us that can do it ourselves save alot of money but do give up alot of time. I enjoy bringing old iron back to life and hope that the rest of you do to. One of the reasons that prices of GTs will probably continue to climb is that places that do the restorations for profit have to charge so much for their time. Some people seem to have the big bucks to pay for these high priced GTs. Good Luck, Rick

I really want to find a small 2 cylinder diesel for my JD140H3. I am just finding it hard to find one.

I'm right there with you. It would be a ridiculous feat to fit a water cooled diesel under the hood and behind the grille though. I've done some searching and have only found single cylinder air cooled 140 diesels.

 

Daniel,

One of those sure would fit nice in an MF1650 that you know of... hint hint.

 

Everyone else... I don't think you all are even in the ballpark of what he is lining up... So tell us Daniel, will the mystery machine be at the plow day???

Agree with boyscout completely. Aside from working on GTs as a hobby, sometimes I do up a bike. I have recently been looking for a Triumph to fix up and really can't find them cheap anywhere. Heck, my Pan I sold a little over 7 months ago went for way more than I asked because it too has been price driven by all kinds of dealers and pro restorers. I like they do what they do if they do it because they enjoy it, but I hate how it keeps driving prices up on all kinds of things. Look at JD 80 carts.
