Get your butt up here next weekend. They have the Two Cylinder shebang. The auction's just a part of it. Click on the May 7th auction on their homepage, for some reason that wouldn't link on here.

Yup, have a "50" that's in perfect running order and still use it for real around here. Good tractor to train kids on with the hand clutch, I started my career driving a "B". It was a real bear, used to plow with it when I was young and when I would get to the end of the field I'd have to let it rest like a team of horses. When the water temp went down in a bit, back the other way.

The 50 did replace the B, I'm not positive but didn't the 60 replace the A?

I still remeber when we got the 50 in the late 60's. A local machinery jockey got it from Louisiana. It was working in the rice fields there. The tires were different than any up north for the rice fields. But they've been replaced a long time ago. In all the years we've had it the largest repair job was a chunk of carbon getting stuck under the exhast valve. It happened at night picking corn and I was driving, the fire shooting out the exhast pipe was pretty cool. Total repair cost $15 for grinding the head.
I can tell you that tractor is not leaving here as long as I'm alive.

Oats is in almost two weeks and will start working corn ground tommorrow. Been snowing off and on today, was out in the calving pasture this afternoon and was in a whiteout! The newborns seem to handle the flurries and wind OK though. Supposed to warm up later this week, I'll have to keep an eye out on the posters west of me and see how it is out there. The last week we've been getting Manitoba weather. No wonder some of them are so grouchy! :wink:
