    Been kind of slow here on the Forum in some areas so I thought I would brighten???:Shrugs: your life with some of our our current projects. I wasn't sure where to post this but all three of these started out on steel wheels so here they are.

    Here is a 26 D John Deere that Dad and I restored in the early 80's. Has not run much for a few years. Drug it into the shop again to repair the carburetor. Still waiting for parts.

    Here is a 34 GP John Deere that Dad and I restored in the early 80's. Needed fuel system work. Fixed it last week. Should be good again for quite a few years.

    Here is a tractor a got this fall. A gentleman from Rosholt SD brought it to me for repair. I fixed it but when I called to tell him it was done he gave it to me. I could not believe it. Nice old original Massey Harris Pacemaker.

    We have a few of other projects but they definitely belong in the Rubber Tire section.

    Mark, forgot about your Case, could sure be done.

    Working on a D-14 Allis right now for someone we both know real well. He took some parts home 4 years ago to sandblast and paint them, just got them back last week. Sure slowed down the project. He was also going to come and help today and he is a no-show. Give you one guess who that is. His first name sounds alot like yours.

    Oh well, he is more of a talker and watcher than a worker. Going pretty good without him.

    It will be a working tractor for the club, plow, thrash, saw, pony-brake whatever you can find for me to do LOL. Look forward to seeing some of the crew in a few days. Mike
