This AC had a very clever counter-balance set up on the plow lift. I'm bad with names in the heat of lots of fun, but I think this fellas name was Mike? he was with his wife, pretty sure from IL, well anyway she had a NICE camera, hopefully she took better stuff than me.

He had this done up looking pretty stock from 20 feet or so but close up I could see some unique changes :thumbs: SANY0050.JPG

He said he had a gal redo his seats on several units, (sounded very reasonable to me) and this one was nicely done.

Love the red Cubs !

CR had this 782 with I believe a Sears manual 3 point lift and plow adapted on with an electric actuator unit. I followed it a couple times. The actuator connecting point failed the test, but the rest plowed pretty well, not bad for the man that sold his regular plow tractor just before plow-day ! We talked and decided he needs to convince his wife that he needs some more red Cubs !

This one plowed a nice clean-cut furrow too :thumbs:

Don't think I ever got to talk with this fella but this machine had some power :thumbs: SANY0069.JPG

These showed up while I was plowing in afternoon, looked pretty nice :thumbs:

SANY0066.JPG

I really liked this one that MH81 brought :thumbs:

SANY0038.JPG

"grumpy" had several nice customized features to his 149  that made it better than the run of mill 149. These wheel spacers that he made allowed the rear wheels to track in alignment with the front :thumbs: Special SS nipple on stack and some other nice touches. He was just packing up in 2012 from a broken shaft  so I didn't get to talk with him that year, it was nice to pick his brain this year ! Hope to spend some more talk-time with him next time.

Supply Sargent had a bad run of luck with his 140, but I sure enjoyed talking with him and his wife :thumbs:

I know I've got some more but my eyes are shot, I'm going for coffee.

For all those that had planned to come and couldn't I'm sorry life got in the way, it was a GREAT day :rocker2:

Oh, the shame! Not really, I got to learn a bit more about points ignition, and still had a great time. Lots of new faces for me this year, really glad everyone made it.

I followed several that left a nice clean furrow, as much fun watching that as it was plowing. I need to add a rear view mirror, a couple of times Alice sneaked up behind me and I just let him by at the end. LOL

I got the seal put back in the front of the motor  and got the disc all put together today. I still have to put everything up tonight. FYI today I went to the local JD dealer to get a seal for the 14 HP Kohler on the 149 cub. $15.00 and change and the wouldn't have it until Wednesday.  I went to a local bearing house and got 4 for the same money.

What was the old red/ yellow tractor just driving around? Looked like a Speedex..???

Home built by my Dad about 60+ years ago.  He built a few others for my Uncles too, and one for my Grandpa.
