Default Some of the collection

Thought maybe I’d share a picture of my addiction lol. Got about 40 of them running and out for reorganizing the shed last weekend. Have about 15 others not in there that are either in the process of restoration or on the waiting list. What a pile of work but it was nice to get them out and washed up. Wish I had more time but between welding and farming it gets a little sparse.

Very colorful tractor collection. Great lighting and shadow effects.
That would make a nice front page calendar photo.

Nice collection, Dan. Looks like good lighting in that shed! LED's?

Very interesting photo and nice collection! Thanks Dan! Good choice of looking for a Twin City for your collection.
Do show us your spares if you would Phil.
Dan, would you show us when you find one?

Took my '21 12-20 for a run around the farm yesterday and she overheated! Never did that before--must have a blockage in the cooling system. I've got to pull the heads anyway as I seem to have a leaking intake valve in number one, so I'll flush the whole cooling system out and check water pump for a bad impeller. I've got a set of new valve springs to install at that time too.

DanLyle,
What a great collection. Thank you for sharing.
A neighbour used to farm with those Fordson Majors. He had one with a Perkins diesel. He did a lot of farming with that ol' girl!

There was one of those Fordson Majors locally. Thing ran cheap on fuel but it leaked oil and fuel like an old Detroit Diesel! The guy bought it cheap and used it for years. Don't know what became of it as the farm was sold for housing development and the developer got every thing on that place.

Let me know what you have for extras Phil, I’d love to come see your collection again. I just bought a couple quarters of land but I can always seem to come up with money for another tractor lol

Time to thin out some of the project tractors that I don't seem to have time for and have been sitting in the shed for too long. I'll send you a PM or an e-mail.
