    My first Horse was a 68 Ranger. Amazingly strong little tractors. Hope I am not infringing but that picture is awesome. Would have made a great ad.

    Had to haul out the ashes and bring another load of coal up today...been burning it at bit faster rate of late. Has warmed up to 9 degrees and the faithful ranger fired right up and was ready to go to work immediately. She has been making the ash and coal haul run every 10-14 days in the winter for 18 years now. She is my only horse that get used year around Added to the years working for my Father I would say the $435 he spent on her in 1967 was a decent investment.

    Yes it works well keeping exhaust away. I replaced the original side discharge while my Father still used it back in the 70s Replaced the H60 with an HH70 in the late 80s. Father didn't spring for electric start and the H60 didn't have ACR got the new engine to make it easier for him to start it. Me being lazy added electric start (but no charging system)after I inherited it. Still have original engine on the shelf. Have the original deck and a NOS spare, also obtained a snow plow and snow blower for her.

    Other interests... deer and turkey hunting, taxidermy, fishing, crabbing, camping, playing pinochle, and collecting Wild Turkey whiskey bottles, old tools, old fishing lures and reels. The number one interest has to be these guys.

    Pretty sure I lasted until about 10 or 10:15. Worst part was I actually did not remember that it was New Year's Eve until I woke up in the morning and my honey said Happy New Year! I'm such a party animal.....

    A reminder for all you veteran eagle watches, the Hanover, Pa. eagles are working hard to rebuild the nest as documented by this video by a local expert, Karen Lippy. The live stream camera should be activated in early Jan. https://hdontap.com/index.php/video/stream/bald-eagle-live-cam

    What else do you guys do beside collect Wheel horses? My family enjoys going camping, plus we do some camping at tractor shows. We collect wheel horses, antique tractors and implements(between me and dad we have roughly 30 old plows). I have 2 old engines and we have some cattle. We are involved in our local tractor club.i also have an old pull type combine that I enjoy playing with in the fall. My family also has a large farm toy collection

    Well I got a couple of gift cards, the usual socks. Best thing I got was my mom had come down from NC for the weekend. She stayed with us so I got to spend time with her. My son made my aluminum fuel tank for the GT14 and that was awesome. Can't ever sell the tractor now😁. Just was nice being around family. @PeacemakerJack I got "American Sniper " dvd also, lol. I did trade a guy my red dot sight for his variable scope so I guess that could be my Christmas present to myself. My eyes thank me. Hope everyone has a great 2018!

    My family has owned a lot of neat vehicles over the years but most of those were sold at some point. The vehicle that has been owned the longest is my uncle kens 1969 Chev C20. He purchased it as the second owner in 1974 and it was a daily driver for a decade. I remember riding in it as a young man then in 1984 it was taken out of service... It has the very typical Wisconsin rust on the bedsides, the rockers are nearly gone, as are about half of the floor boards. Door lowers are a little rough and after sitting for so many years I’m sure that the fuel system, brake system, etc need to be gone over. Ken has agreed to sell it to us for the family discount rather than sell it off to someone else. Honestly, I could find much better candidates to start a restoration with but none will be able to reproduce the nostalgia of being in my family for 44 years and counting! As far as C20’s go—it’s pretty plain Jane. 350, 4spd with granny low, 4.11 posi, manual everyrhing except brakes. It is my desire to get it running and driveable this summer while replacing the rockers and floor pans. Change the wheels to something that makes the whole “rat rod” persona pop and clearcoat the whole truck in satin to seal it. Then, in a few years, if we can afford it, begin a full restoration on it. The mags I was looking at have articles on restoring vintage GM pickups...I sure have a lot more ideas than time or money.

    Adjusted for inflation the price in today's money would be $ 3,260 and worth every penny.

    When you drain the old oil you should jack up the front end to insure complete emptying. You will probably want to put a half gallon of diesel fuel in to flush the old sludge out. Put it on jack stands and run it in each gear for a few minutes and then jack the front and drain again. Use two quarts of 90 Gear Oil and get a new rubber boot for the shifter.

    Are you experiencing freezing temperatures? Water in the transmission will lock them up tight if it freezes. First thing that came to mind as it's -22*F here at the moment. Garry

    Deck on this machine looked a little rough so I gave it some love. Nearly everything was bead blasted and painted. Deck had a few stress cracks that were welded up. Also one mounting pin was missing and had been replaced with a bolt. Proper pin is now welded into place. No rust holes, just some surface rust and minor pitting. Spindles were rebuilt with all new bearings. Idlers were repacked with grease and spin smoothly. Both belt tensioner bellcranks have new bushings installed and work smoothly. Front anti-scalp wheels have bronze bushings installed, and wheel bolts have been drilled then cross drilled and a grease fitting installed. Blades have been cleaned up, sharpened , balanced, and painted. I have new ones but these will work fine for now. New decals installed. Thanks Terry for the excellent decals as per usual. Here is what it looked like when I first pulled it. This is what it looks like now. Won't need it for a long time but at least it is ready. Just need to install it then level it and set the brake clearance.

    Battery, finish the wiring, electric fuel pump, get it running and then the drive belt, hydraulic hoses, power steering valve, although not necessarily in that order.

    My 1930 Dodge with the 4.5 X21" tires on wooden spoke wheels was best car ever in the snow. If I did get stuck, I just wound some old cloths line rope thru the spokes and around the tires .

    Well, I thought I would have a go at designing something. This is what I came up with. Here is a comparison with the swingaway on the left and stock on the right. Standard OEM clevis installed. Swingaway clevis installed in normal running position. Swingaway clevis in open position. Both styles of clevises shown. Swingaway clevis in open position partly swung to the side. Complete unit with PTO disengaged. Complete unit with PTO engaged. Here are the plans. Wheel Horse swingaway PTO clevis.pdf
