Old Metal Stuff




Girl and I on 1939 tractor which a neighbor and I restored from rusty condition on one of the wheels, and painted. Another close neighbor died and gave it to me 15 years ago.

One had to rotate the flywheel by hand there on the left to get the 2 cylinder to start.  It usually popped right off since there are petcock reliefs on the cylinders to allow  reduced pressure in the cylinders whilst starting.

We don't farm, so don't know what to do with it except maybe haul firewood, pull a dead tree, or drag someone out of a muddy/ snowy road.

Goatman! It's been ages! Good to see you and I LOVE your tractor. You can ride that along just cos it looks cool. Good job.

I dunno what i would do with it either Goat, but I sure would not mind having it standing at the ready next to the garage.

Wow! what great old thing! I'm referring to the tractor!! :)

How wonderful it is...you restored it well!

I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year, Goatman. :)

You could perhaps help old ladies across the street...?

goatman said...

Good plan. That would stop the traffic!

I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are having a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your linked header on our new site directory, SiteHoundSniffs.com? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the linked header will attract more attention.

You may display. Best to you and the new year.

Thank you so very much for giving permission. You can see your linked header under All, Daily Life and the United States. If you could say something (preferably good) about SiteHoundSniffs.com here and there, we would greatly appreciate it.

Very nice post. Blogging seems to be a dying art these days...

goatman said...

Indeed. Short discourse seems to be the norm.
